Mantra’s first store in the city promises to bring in the same divinity that is in Indian temples
Mantra Gold Coatings, which has been associated with more than 2,000 temples such as Sabarimala in Kerala and Iskcon in Bengaluru across India and abroad for gold coatings, has launched its first retail store in the city. They have been reinventing the magic of ancient Indian bronze arts since 1998.
“We wanted to extend our experience in gold coating to come up with a range that people can purchase for their homes. We have an interesting selection, ranging from a traditional Poona room set to a six-ft tall Buddha,” says Pankaj Bhandari, CEO, Mantra Gold Coatings.
Located in Road no. 12 in Banjara Hills, the 2,100 sq.ft showroom has a wide range of Japura rooms and Hindu idols. Everything in the showroom is 24 karat gold coated with lacquer finish which protects it from tarnishing. The brand offers five-year warranty for its products but if taken care of it on a regular basis the products may last for more than a decade.
“We have done gold coatings for many temples in India and we know when we say five years and if the customer is keeps dusting it regularly, our products will not tarnish even after a decade,” says store manager Pradeep.
The puja room concepts are displayed right there in the store. The brand offers its customers the puja room under the title of Samarpan.
Mantra also boasts of designer name plates, bronze screens and partitions. It also has a wide range of vases, baskets, paperweights, wall-hangings, kitchen and dining ware and gift items. Mantra has an extensive range of products from traditional pieces to ornate Buddha statues and golden Bodhi trees.
