    I had a great time at the Umaid Hertigate Art School. Vijay, the owner, (aka Mr Lentil man - know for being able to draw detailed art on a lentil) started the school to preserve the art techniques in the area. I had a fun experience trying my best to also create art using the same techniques and take home the finished piece (see in photo). Vijay, himself was very hospitable and made me feel very welcome and comfortable.

    He also showed me some of the art his students had made, as well as many of his own. He is clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about preserving the art form. Will definitely be visiting again if I’m in the area!

    What wealth is behind this sort of building, a night’s stay is probably equivalent to a decade of a poor person’s income

    I have been here and the art I have seen is really nice, full of details and the attention was so polite.
    You must make a visit to them, generations of artists!

    We were graciously greeted and welcomed into the beautiful compound where our friend’s parents were working on the loom, apparently they were giving their son and his wife a break. The 3x5 rugs you see on the loom take 2-3 weeks to make one with 2 people working. Folks work 12 hour shifts each day making looms and weaving. It’s hard to fathom the time it takes to make these gorgeous pieces. All of the fibers are 100% cotton or camel wool and naturally dyed with local plants. The colors were so rich and brilliant in the late day sun. The courtyard transformed with each new rug presentation. As we enjoyed the beautiful display of rugs we chatted, drank tea and got to hear a bit of the wonderful history behind these special rugs and the families that make them. I highly suggest a visit. I look forward to coming back next year.

    A fun educational experience. A must visit for all coin enthusiasts. The owner has put in his soul into the museum and it's worth a visit to see a historical glimpse of the India that existed.

    Arna Jharna is a living museum where a person can interact and experience within the surroundings. The village-like structure of this desert museum with village objects is a perfect place to understand different communities and their activities. The rainy and winter seasons adds charm to the area, making it the perfect place in the year to visit. Apart from being a broom and musical instruments museum, Arna Jharna has some of the Rajasthani flora and fauna. During the events, the traditional dance and music communities are invited, thus making the place more lively and musical.
    The people are also helpful and humble. One should visit the place once.

    Mr Razzak Ali demonstrated pottery to us beautifully and we were captivated by his skills with clay. He is one of the artisans keeping the Bishnoi culture alive. He is a true professional and has been doing this for 14 odd years. He has a vast collection of pottery artefacts such as animals, tea cups, flower vases etc. I am so glad I visited his place during my Jodhpur trip.

    A fine and proper re-arranged Museum with information. All Halls & Rooms now well settled and maintained .
    Wide collection of sculptures from old time 10-12th century period.
    Different types of coin collection are presenting. The King's history and the things shown. Very fine range of Show-Pieces , utensils made by Ivory. Different types of weapons , armours etc are well presented .

    A good collection Very old times hand painted scrolls and painting .
    Hunted animals body with real skin.

    Lot of things in a good manner.

    The surrounding area , garden is now re-constructed and well maintained.

    This is a government under control unit so no more people are visit here, they they visit the private king's museum in Jodhpur Fort , but in reality this is also a good place to visit single or with family

    It is an amazing experience to visit Budhraj Dhury in Bishnoi village safari. They are just extraordinary in their artwork. How they make dhury and weave various kind of products is a firsthand learning experience. I just loved the place. I have bought 3 beautiful things too. Prices are reasonable being these are handmade. Kuldeep Singh Ranwat was my safari guide.
