Colorful Channapatna Lacquer Toys on display at MG Road Bangalore

Shining Little Channapatna Lacquer Toys and Dolls!

Colorful, shining little colorful Channapatna Toys and Dolls happily sit basking in the early afternoon sun at the outdoor Kaveri Handicrafts Emporium at the Junction of MG Road and Brigade Road, the nerve center of Bangalore. The history of Channapatna Toys can be traced to Tipu Sultan and Persia. They are made out of Ivory Wood (today Teak also) and finished using Lacquer wood finish that gives them that shining, glowing look. They are famous across the world and are THE souvenirs to take home after you visit Bangalore. You can buy Channapatna Toys online too!
