Shopping

Bishnupur is well known for its Baluchari silk saris, with mythological stories woven into their panels. It is also a sales centre for Bankura horses, stylised terracotta horses made in Panchmura village, 22km southwest, which are among the foremost symbols of Indian folk art. You'll find outlets for both these crafts along Chinnamasta Rd, which heads south off College Rd beside Bishnupur Tourist Lodge.
