Conch shell or more commonly known as Shankha has a big mythological importance in Sanatani parampara. It has a long history with Lord Vishnu with the cultural importance of India. We believe that having shankha in our house is holy for us. The sound originated from shankha can kill some viruses in the area. So our artisans went and searched for a quality shankha and found it on the southeast part of the Bay of Bengal and near the Indian Ocean. Then used his sense of art to make those special things even more eye-catching by carving and performing thousands of art forms on those. It not only reminds us of our cultural life but also decorates our house.
