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.
