Janapada Loka translates to 'Folk World', and as the name suggests, is dedicated to promoting, preserving and propagating the very vibrant folk art and culture. It is located in the Ramanagara District, just off 53 km from the Bengaluru - Mysore Highway. The Karnataka Janapada Parishath took up the initiative of establishing Janapada Loka, not only to conserve the slowly diminishing ar but to educate and inspire the generations with its poise, power and sheer beauty.
The Janapada Loka houses just about 5000 folk artefacts which include a variety of previously used but unflinchingly mighty hunting equipment, rustic and old-school agricultural equipment, traditional and creative household wares, colourful puppets and artefacts that revolve around the themes of folk literature, music, sculptures, festivals and lifestyle. All these artefacts are divided between separate wings, namely Folks Art Museum, Loka Mahal, Chitra Kuteera, Doddamane, Shilamala, Ayagaramala, etc. This enormous complex spreads over a whopping 15 acres of land and houses a sparkling blue lake, lush greenery, local eateries serving specially prepared and regionally popular Karnataka dishes and even a small children's play park!
