In Chennai you can buy it from Khadi Gramaudyog shop. If there is equivalent in Bangalaore then try it.

There is a limit on how much you can take out of the country, it might be a kilo; the shop people may know. A few hundred grams should be OK.

You can check out in Cauvery Handicrafts in MG Road. You will get sandal wood logs as well along with powder.

Do they sell just simple pieces of the wood? They have very nice carved items, the best I've seen so far, but pure wood? I can't remember.

The kadi (kadhi?) shops here sell pieces of wood. It is used in some rituals.

It is illegal to export more than a very small amount of uncarved sandal wood.

I know Mysore should be a good place for sandalwood (-products), should you pass by there. But, Bangalore would probably be fine, as suggested by the responses so far.

Exactly, Mach... I've already confused someone in another thread by mis-spelling it.

This is the Khadi Gramodyog Bhavan, Chennai, site. I think other states/cities have similar

Thanks. I don't find an immediate site for them, but a web search for +"Khadi Gramodyog Bhavan" +bangalore (or: +bengaluru) would suggest there is one (or several?) there yes, and will give you directions.

I suppose a search for just +khadi +bangalore might likewise be fruitful; or possibly overwhelming. Maybe try the same with sandalwood.

Anyway I notice only now the poster mentioned on Aug. 12th

There's just nothing like reading a message marked "urgent" when the poster is leaving "tomorrow morning" -- presumably the visit was planned and since posting a message only takes a minute or two of precious time, there's no need for it to be so urgent.
