About Sandalwood Carving

Reflected in its stunning temple architecture, this art form goes back to centuries with its origin in Uttar Pradesh. Later, the immensely talented artists used the skill to create small artefacts of daily use. In Rajasthan, the art form has moved to another stature due to its elegance, design and the royal flavour.

    I had a nice time with Mahesh and his sons. They showed me a lot of techniques and tools used for sandalwood carving, that challenged me to make my carving more detailed after I had tried my hands on one technique. He made me feel extremely welcome in his lovely home and I enjoyed interacting with his family during the experience. We carved a sandalwood piece of my choice which I am very happy with. Thanks, Mahesh!

    We loved our opportunity to learn this special Sandalwood carving art from Mahesh. He is highly skilled and very passionate about the art form. We were taken by the patience and care with which he showed us different carving techniques. We also tried our hands in carving our designs with his guidance and support. He even helped us to undo some design and carving mistakes we made. We especially loved the Rajasthani hospitality we experienced at his home. We were excited to take home our completed carved pieces. We highly recommend you to try this activity as an amazing opportunity to understand the art and the artisan’s life and experience beautiful art. Mahesh has all intentions to keep his artistic heritage alive which is inspiring and important. Thank You, Mahesh, Mohit and Rohit.

    Really lovely experience! The artist and his sons, Rohit and Mohit, spent a lot of time getting to know all tools, techniques and explaining the steps involved in sandalwood carving. Took care that we were able to understand all the details and was happy to create our own pieces. Highly recommend!!!

    I feel the sandalwood carving experience is a well worth the time and money one spends. You can tell that he has a lot of expertise and knowledge, which becomes obvious the moment you meet him and doing the hands-on activity with him. We took with us a beautiful carved piece that we made under his guidance! Highly recommended and would do it again!
