Of course, it is what it is, totally created for tourists, but otherwise we couldn't have seen all the excellent recreated building styles. We enjoyed an amble around by camel and bought a few things too. The musicians who started up as we approached and continued to play as we wandered around really added to our experience.

The crafts village, located north west of the city, is a must see place for those who want to see the cultural heritage of India, its handicrafts and more. Opened by the late Rajiv Gandhi, it is an interesting place with traditional houses from four states Rajasthan, Gujarat, Goa and Maharashtra. There are demonstrations by musicians, dancers and artisans from... More

Folk dancers, camel ride , swings were there for the enjoyment. Rural handicrafts and craft shops were there which had reasonably priced items. Te government should take initiative to boost... More

Its a huge place .. wherein they have made huts / cottages which depict india's various states and their culture. It was a little deserted when we went.. its best to go when there is a fair going on.. or a festival

Must to visit, Here you will meet with some artists who show their art. If you like it, you can also buy these articles. Seems little bit expensive but prices negotiable so not to worry. Try to have lunch or snacks in restaurant at entrance gate. Mouth watering Dal bati, types of rotis and Kadhi are part of it's menu.

You would find much better stuff outside the market in smaller shops. Shilpgram is meant for foreigners who have less knowledge about shopping culture in India

Spent a nice couple of hours exploring Shilpgram. There lots to see, from houses from different parts of India, to a puppet show, dances, and music. Even though there is a sign not to pay for the performances, the performers clearly expect it and worked had to get a few rupees, that we were happy to give. I wasn't too... More
