Tilak Gitai

Tilak Gitai Review

A special treat for lovers of miniature paintings is a trip to the home of award-winning artist Tilak Gitai, who creates exquisite miniatures in classic Mughal, Rajput, Pahari, and other styles. Using antique paper, Gitai applies colors made from semiprecious stones, then real gold and silver leaf, in designs so fine he'll give you a magnifying glass to admire them. This is not a quick visit, but it's a great way to spend a few hours with a friendly Rajasthani family and learn about Indian art. Prices start at a few hundred rupees and soar to a few hundred thousand.
