Since Bishnupur had no stone for construction, the Malla kings built exquisite terracotta temples to celebrate their love for Krishna, the Blue God. A trip to Bishnupur is a unique experience.

Bishnupur apart from being a heritage city is also the manufacturer of one of the most expensive saris in India. Baluchari Saris are created by the artistic craftsmen of this city. on one sari you may have an entire episode from the Mahabharata woven into its border or pallu!
