The temples of our country are not only sacred places of worship but also great centers of fairs and festivals, art and architecture, music; dance etc, the sculptural art of any temple reflects the contemporary religion of a particular period, when the temple was constructed. The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams, maintain 13 temples, known for their importance as religious and pilgrim centers, are also noted for their hoary past as revealed by the valuable inscriptions of different dynasties.

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
