Very friendly owner, had good miniature art, really impressive!! If you like art, this is the place to be in Bikaner
I spent an interesting 45 minutes or so with master painter Shiv Swami. It was he who established the Guinness World Record category and held the record for 6 months before a Chinese man who painted on a pinhead took over the title. Shiv is a fantastic craftsman and I learned…
Truely amazing minatures. Beautiful and reasonably priced. Bought one for my brother and had his name put on it... will drive him crazy trying to find it, it's so tiny... and done without a magnifying glass. Definitely worth a visit.
We visited Bikaner Miniature Arts shop and were pleasantly surprised by our experience. The owner himself explained to us the intricacies of Miniature paintings and it was a very interesting visit. The prices also seemed to be reasonable.
I was on a private tour of Rajasthan and my driver said we should stop here (I believe they're on commission if you buy anything). Yes, the paintings are exquisitely detailed but not to the typical Western European taste. Expect some pressure to buy something.
