Hi,

Could anyone please tell me where can I buy tribal arts and crafts, like small iron figures and beautiful heavy bell-metal statues in Chhattisgarh?

Thanks in advance.!

Bastar region is the place where most of this handicrafts are made. There are vllages near Jagdalpur where you can directly buy this crafts from their makers. Otherwise there is a store operated by government which falls on the way from Raipur to Jagdalpur where you can buy different handicrafts. Sorry I don't remember any of the names & if you want I can dig out the names for you.

Ronak.
