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

Though the shop owners claimed that the prices are much below the retail prices, we found it as expensive as the retail prices in the main city. We did not feel bad about the extra buck though, since the entire money... More

once a year, we can have a good late shopping village, but prices are quite on, more products would improve the market to attract more people, same product is very boring every year

Not much going on here and felt more like a tourist trap than anything. We heard that they have performances so if you choose to go check to see what time the action is otherwise there isn't much to see.

At the time we visited, there was hardly anything here.. just a few street shops that were selling closely and a few steeply priced artefacts. Just not worth our time as it is a bit of a detour about 6 kms from the main route that takes you back from Nathdwara to the city. I believe the place is worth... More

You can see different village set ups, dances, crafts etc....The rural villagers take turns coming to Shilpgram and selling their goods for 2 weeks at a time.....This give you access to people and things you might not normally see.....The prices are good and there's a wide selection of things to buy.....And it's interesting to see the different ways people live.....
