Shilpgram Review

This rural arts-and-crafts village 3 km (2 miles) west of Udaipur contains a complex with 26 re-creations of furnished village huts (authentic right down to their toilets) from various states across India, including Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, and Odisha, with tribal relics on display. The town comes alive in December with the Shilpgram Utsav, when artists and craftspeople from around the country arrive to sell and display their works. Puppet shows, dances, folk music, and handicrafts sales take place year-round, however. You can tour parts of the compound on a slow camel ride. There is a basic dhaba (eatery) inside the compound serving Indian food and tea.
