Bhartiya Lok Kala Mandal has been one of the locations where you keep having new events including cultural shows, puppet shows etc. It was build a few decades ago but has continued to maintain its charm

The place has not changed since I visited this place 20 years back. The puppet show is the only charm here. The toilets are new but not clean.

9.30 to 7pm.. wait and watch the puppet show which keeps happening every 15-20mts.. interval. Then at 7pm or so, the outdoor sit out, there is a folk dance.. that you could watch as well.
