Karnataka Folk Museum - Bangalore India

Karnataka Folk Museum Located on the Kumara Park West, Sheshadripuram, this folk Museum is managed by Karnataka Janapada Trust and has an impressive collection of folk music and videotapes of folk dances. Many unique masks, colourful artifacts and costumes have been displayed.

The Janapada Loka or the folk museum is situated about 53 Kms from Bangalore on the Bangalore Mysore highway. It is a mere 3 Kms from ramanagaram. This little known museum, devoted to covering Karnataka diverse folk life, is situated on 15 acres of land and the entire area is covered with trees. As a result even though there is much ground to be covered, all the paths leading to the different buildings are shady.

The artifacts are housed in three little buildings - Lokamahal, Lokamatha Mandira and Chitrakuteera. The Lokamahal is the most comprehensive, housing a number of interesting folk puppets, utensils, instruments, weapons and masks. While a variety of utensils, baskets, and earthen jars used to store grain and pickles are displayed in the Lokamatha Mandira, the Chitrakuteera has a number of photographs covering different aspects of folk life.
