Shilpgram is a cultural museum located in the heart of Udaipur. For those who love handicraft, this is the ultimate place to head to. You can see a variety of crafts and craftsmanship here. The place also holds an annual fest in December every year which is the best time to check their varied collection. Along with this, you can also find a lot of detailed work about the Rajputana clan. The traditional items are preserved well so that even the future generations can take a peek in the history of the place. The museum is well-maintained and also organizes dances at regular intervals.

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 .
Situated 7 km west of Udaipur near Lake Fateh Sagar is the Centre's Shilpgram - the Rural Arts and Crafts Complex.WHERE TO STAYI will recommend you, please book your hotel in Old city near Lake Pichola. It is the best area to stay as you may walk around easily. Few hotels around Lake Pichola are Jagat Niwas, Kankarwa Haveli, Jaiwana Haveli, Mewar Haveli, Karohi Haveli, Lake Pichola Hotel etc. I have stayed at Jaiwan Haveli, all the major sight seeing points in the old city are within an easy walking distance from Jaiwana Haveli.HOW TO REACH HEREBy Air: Dabok Airport, also known as Maharana Pratap Airport is the closest at about 25 km northeast of the city center. There are daily flights from Delhi and Mumbai on Jet Airways, Air India, and SpiceJet.By Road: Udaipur is easily accessible by road from every major destination in India, including Chittorgarh, Ahmedabad, Jodhpur, Ajmer, Ranthambore, Jaipur, Bikaner, Agra, Delhi, Mumbai, and Khajuraho.By Train: Udaipur is connected by rail to several major cities in India including Chittorgarh, Ahmedabad, Ajmer, Jaipur, Agra, Delhi, Mumbai, and Khajuraho.BEST TIME TO VISITClimate is not important, how you enjoy each place in different weather condition is important.GO EXPLORE THE WONDERS AND SITES THAT UDAIPUR HAS TO OFFER!All the pictures are taken and edited by Kundan SinghFollow : Tripoto Facebook Instagram
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 .
What’s the use of visiting the state of Rajasthan, which is known for its ethnic culture, if we don’t get a taste of this culture? The Shilpgram will solve this problem. 3 km west of Fateh Sagar Lake, Shilpgram is a crafts village imbibing the ethnic Rajasthani culture from hosting folk dances, songs to being home to shopkeepers who sell pure Rajasthani couture. It was inaugurated by Rajiv Gandhi in 1989. It is set in the countryside, and is equally interesting. There are traditional items sold like glittering mirrored interiors, and craft exhibits. As soon as one enters, there is an excellent demonstration by traditional dancers and artisans. The best time to come is during the mela (fair) in the last 10 days of December, it forms an amazing spectacle with hundreds of artisans in attendance. The best way to reach the Shilpgram is a 30 minute auto rickshaw ride from old city which might cost up to 250 Rs.
