I would highly recommend a trip to this beautifully restored haveli where you can watch a true craftsman carve a wooden block before observing the printer use a series of blocks to make a multi coloured pattern.

I love textiles, especially floral prints and paisleys. A daytrip to Saganer to see the block print artisans would have been thrilling for me but not for my son or parents. The Anokhi Museum, housed in a heritage building near the Amer Fort, was a pleasant stop for everyone. While my father and Sanjay sat in the café, my mother... More

Loved our visit here and spent over an hour exploring all this heritage haveli has to offer. The haveli itself is beautiful and has been restored with traditional methods which are explained within the museum. It is remarkably cool in comparison to the outdoor heat. The exhibitions are well curated and incredibly educational - providing interesting background to the crafts... More

We hired a car and driver and went there on a much looked forward to visit...only to find that, despite the information they posted on their web site, it was most definitely closed!

neat museum and the building is interesting as well. be prepared for a lot of stairs, though. i don't know much about textiles or printing processes, and i though the explanatory texts and layouts were very well-done and informative. there were also a few artisans working inside, we watched a man carve the printing blocks, and two others as they...

Anokhi, forthose who wear the clothes made by them is a must place to visit when in Jaipur. One is spoilt for choice with garments and home linen printed in typical Rajasthani motifs with hand blocks and natural colours. Anokhi works to preserve the traditions and prints of Rajasthan. Anokhi has a lovely coffee shop tucked in with some interesting... More

This is a wonderful museum if you are interested in textiles and the block printing process. The building itself, a former haveli, is worth seeing as well. We loved seeing the history of these fabrics unfold and the beautiful examples on display. The shop too was great--I was wishing for even more items reproducing the textiles we'd seen.
