"A Tribute to India"

Built on a hillock, Swabhumi uses the natural terrain and greenery of the site to create a unique space that is dedicated to showcasing artistic and cultural nuances of India, and particularly Bengal. The large space is divided into three zones. In the urban zone, the most interesting shops include: Karuja for dokra and shola craft items, Vikalp Art Shop for sculptures and paintings by contemporary Indian artists and Suryabarta for handicrafts from Shantiniketan. Marked by little clusters of huts, the traditional zone known as 'Shilpagram' is the most interesting part of the establishment. Here, you will find 'Karigarer Haat' (Craftsman's House) where artisans sell their own creations and also answer any questions you have about origin of the art forms and methods used to create them. Of special note is the Music Courtyard which has a number of Indian and Bengali instruments like the ektara, sitar and tabla; the craftsmen, who also tend to be musicians, perform live demonstrations for the discerning customer. The colorful Meena Bazaar is an amazing place to buy all kinds of jewelery. Everything here is reasonably priced, but you can try bargaining (it works sometimes). Another zone is entirely dedicated to serving you various cuisines from different parts of India. Hosting a number of events every year, Swabhumi has four event spaces; Rang Manch at 8000 square feet and Urban Courtyard at 12000 square feet are the biggest and most popular. Swabhumi, literally 'my land', is a veritable paradise for souvenir hunters!
