Disguised in the name of being a Govt subsidiary. They are cheats and looters best to say. Purchased sandal body powder and sandal perfumes. Majority of things are overpriced, same sandalwood items I could in cheap from other outlets. Better to avoid it.

The store makes a claim that it is the Government owned outlet for local Art and Craft, however, appears far from it. The store is canvassed by agents on two wheeler who look out for gullible tourists as well as by Rickshaw and Taxi drivers,...More

Typically the TukTuk drivers will bring you to this place to receive commission. They are good sellers and will butter you (Original Silk, Cashmere from the goat, blablabla). Don't trust them. The highlight is that they declare Government Silk and KSIEC on a sign at...More
