Shilpgram is Mumbai's first arts and craft village located near the Jogeshwari –Vikhrolii link road. This village is likely to become a major tourist attraction in the city. The theme of this village is based on the ‘Bara Balutedar’ system which is an integral part of rural Maharashtra. The Balutedar system represents 12 trades like goldsmiths, coppersmiths, barbers, potters, carpenters etc. Murals of the ‘Bara Balutedar’ surround this beautifully manicured garden which is spread across 13.81 acres of land.
