“art in great piece of architecture”

Jawahar Kala Kendra
Ranked #49 of 238 things to do in Jaipur
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 4, 2014

theater performances, cultural events and exhibitions collected in great modern architecture (my thing). green area around with outdoor museum with reconstructions of traditional villages from around the Rajasthan (museum is not impresive though). you would have to check what is happening there on spot, because most of events are temporary. there is restaurant/buffet inside where you can enjoy typical Indian cuisine for a fair price. good place to hang out and no so turistic.

Travellors with some time must make it a point to visit JKK which is a showpiece room for all arts, like painting,photography,pottery,sculpture, performing arts and for various handicrafts and other exhibitions.

Its well manicured lawns and hedges and flowers and soothing architecture separating the various areas and a permanent village like ambience in exhibition area gives a feel like walking in a garden and is much visited place by the connoisseurs.

The friday theatre and a very good indian coffe house which serves authentic south indian snacks among others is recommended.

one should not leave jaipur without a visit here in the evenings.

Have been in the India's cultural hub that Jaipur is, for two decades now coming from the cultural capital that Calcutta ever has been, I have visited Jawahar Kala Kendra every now and then. Its gallerias, theatrical arenas, its lavish gardens and open areas and its Shilpgram - the mini craft village have their unique charm. And one would be hardly satisfied to have visited the place without enjoying the tidbits of its Coffee House.

Once in a while, one gets hurts about its maintenance and reception approach but once you start enjoying what it offers, one is bound to forget the lack of human skill as compared to its natural beauty and artistic aroma.
