3 hours south of Raipur lies the little kingdom of Kanker on the edge of Bastar where the best tribal arts are still fully individually hand-made in metal, wood, basketry, cloth, and by the lost wax method. Kanker Palace is situated in the former British commissioners mansion at the edge of town surrounded by gardens. Palace rooms are large and... More
