"The main aim of building this rural museum is to give people the feel of rural environment and the village especially to those living in urban areas. Here you can see statues depicting day-to-day rural tasks. Artists those who have built this rural museum and the statues have come from Visakhapatnam district," said Parijatha, Coordinator of Shilparamam. Many visitors describe the village experience in the IT hub as awesome. "These statues look very real. Here, it looks like they are selling real vegetables. The artificial tomatoes look real," said Sheela, a local. "The idea of building an artificial village is very nice. The rural setup and the statues reminded us of our past.
