Then I moved towards my next attraction which was Shilpgram, A rural arts and crafts complex surrounded by Aravali mountains. You will get to see the lifestyle of tribal people of Rajasthan, Rajasthani dance which they do with different kinds of props, shopping market where you can get traditional jewellery, clothes, arts and crafts decoration items etc..
Shilpgram offers you something that you might go looking for when you visit Rajasthan- Tradition.The place has this rustic village feel to it. Acts such as pottery, snake charming, Kathputli(Puppet) dance, traditional Rajasthani dance keep the place alive.You won't be short of traditional food choices that is for sure.
The sight of kids playing in the water , and the birds chirping their own sweet song had relaxed my soul and I ignited my engines to go to Shilpigram a small village around 10kms from there with undulated terrain and surrounded by Aravali mountains . A place famous for rural arts and crafts , and more so for the peace and tranquility that transcended from the lake hidden amidst the cliffs and hills . I could sit there for hours just staring at the water forming ripples and foams and gushing in and hitting the rocks beneath my legs . Perhaps that was the only sound I could hear at the isolated place , I could hear nature speak for the first time . Rightly so , look deep into the nature and you will understand everything better . That is a must visit spot if you plan for Udaipur .

An Art and craft  festival held ever year between 21stDecember to 31stDecember in Shipagram  rural art craft complex.Its a art & craft mela along with traditional folk dances.      We went through google maps and found back gate of Shilpgram so missed the traditional folk dance, and was too crowded so left within half an hour from there. From there had dinner and spent some time in terrace of hotel .
