The Kalabhumi settlement was started with the aim to establish an ideal artists place. Its name means 'Land of Art'.

The Dream
The vision is to create a place where all arts and artists would intermingle.., a place beautiful in its surrounding, a place of silence and quietness, a place where Inspiration would find a direct contact with the human being, and with the earth.

There would be studios for every possible form of art and the artists would live together close by. There would be a cafeteria, a restaurant, and a gallery where their work would be on constant display.

Kalabhumi is in the making..
