Kalagrama, Kala means art, and Grama, means village, i.e., Artist's village. A place where artisans perform their skills. It is one of the art lovers' hubs and an attractive tourist center of Bangalore. The project of constructing a place called Kalagrama was conceived in 2001 when S M Krishna was the chief minister—tracing the blankets of a rich architectural heritage spread over sixteen centuries in Karnataka, in India unveiling them in a modern context for the Artist's Village. A lot of activities took place at Kalagrama throughout the year. The Rashtriya Sanskriti Mahotsav was one of them. The event was an immense success on all four days for every art enthusiast of all ages who were a part of the event.
