What an amazing place Anokhi has put together, this old Haveli is well preserved and reconstructed. But mostly its the interesting things inside. See the history and materials used for the famous block printing of Rajasthan. You can see a demonstration of blocking and block carving. I had no idea that the clothes some villagers wear tell the story of... More

It was wonderful to see the man carving hand blocks the traditional way and to witness how they were used - the cabinets were full of materials with clear notes on their history

A lovely way to spend the afternoon doing something a bit different and getting to see how the last remaining block-printers continue the craft. It is an illuminating look into the way we produce clothing these days and the mechanisation of this type of work. What was once a way to make a living, passed down through generations, is sadly...

Loved the museum itself and the haveli's restoration efforts. This was quite run down till it was restored using native architectural techniques and materials. Hence it easily manages a traditional look and feel with little effort. It was also quiet the day we were there and allowed for an easy and slow ambience. We ended up not only admiring the... More

If you are interested in fabrics this is a must. It is a small museum charting the history of wood block printing in India and up on the top floor you can watch craftsmen making blocks and also printing fabric and you can have a go too. One of the wood carvers made a little flower block for me which... More

This is a must if you are in Amber-Jaipur. Here you can try to do some block printing yourself and you also get a close up of how the blocks are done. Get to know the history behind block printing and look at different prints.
