    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

    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.

    What a wonderful experience - beautifully and authentically appointed in Art Deco style.
    Our suite overlooked the lake from the balcony and we were looked after like never before by lovely palace staff.
    We took the walk in the estate and were treated to our own personal bonfire and sundowners overlooking the lake at sunset.
    The pool and surrounds are stunning. The food was authentic and very good with options that avoided fiery chilli.
    Wonderful stay - unreservedly recommend

    I always visit this store with my family. I love the cotton fabrics available here. They have lots of variety for kids, both western and ethnic. They also have play are for children. Its a complete family store, something for everyone. The staff here is very helpful in guiding you to choose clothes of your choice. Even they keep all the precautions for Covid 19. I just love this store.

    This was a terrific experience! Lavi and her husband Sohel went above and beyond to make us feel at home! We made the finest local Indian cuisine with two people who had a great knowledge base and great sense of humor. I would highly recommend for anyone to do this, it is a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a few hours. Thank you so much Lavi and Sohel!

    Museum is situated in middle of park in cool and calm place.

    Ticket - Applicable

    Warning - Food and water not allowed inside the museum, You can kept near Guard room area or in your own vehicle.

    You will take 30 min to 1 hour to view all things

    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

    Jograj Ji is very caring, knowledgeable (knows all places), cost effective and is very punctual. Would highly recommend him if you are planning a trip to Jodhpur. This will help save all the hassles of Uber/Ola cancellations and rejections.

    I had both the opportunity to join a cooking class at Rekha's place in Jodhpur as well as an online class three years later.
    Even though an online class obviously cannot recreate the magical evening we had in Jodphur, we had a fantastic time nevertheless. We made Lemon Rice, Aubergine Curry, Matter Paneer, and Chickpea Flour Chila. The latter one was my favorite, but everything was delicious. Rekha knows the possibilities and limitations of western kitchens, so everything is well feasible.
    Communication before and during the event went very smoothly, and Rekha is very fluent in English, as well as an entertaining and funny personality.
    The live cooking event was fantastic, as mentioned before: It was a completely organized evening, with pick-up from and return to the hotel in rikshaws, an introduction to the spices, preparation of snacks and beverages (so you won't get hungry or thirsty while cooking), the cooking itself and - of course - eating a wonderful meal together. At the end, you can also buy packaged spice mixes, which I can also recommend (my favorite being the Chaat Masala).
    One of the highlights of my trip to India, and certainly the best thing we did in Jodhpur.
