Alankrita Antiques: A fascinating curio store. Alankrita is a store for antique goods, furniture and artifacts obtained mainly from the erstwhile Mysore state. It also has reproduction antiques and handicrafts. The shop is really small and quite crowded but dont be put off. Rummaging through their collection, you just might find a real treasure from Tanjore paintings to old mirrors and brass idols. However, parking can be a problem. The shop is open from 11am to 6pm, every day except Sundays.
