What Is It?

Mahalaxmi Saras is an annual exhibition held in Bandra, where you can shop till you drop from rural entrepreneurs who will give you their awesome creations for even better prices.

Who Is It For?

For anyone who loves to support art and has shopping as their middle name. Well, this exhibition actually goes beyond just shopping. At the Mahalaxmi Saras, an initiative of the Maharashtra state government that aims to give a platform to rural entrepreneurs, artisans and women’s self help groups, you can look forward to beautiful handicrafts, handlooms and, wait for it, delicious food products.

Why Should I Go For It?

Anything Else?
