Basant Art Emporium is perhaps one of the best places one can go to buy genuine artifacts of Rajasthan. The collection here is actually quiet diverse ranging from small brass door handles to stuff carved from camel bones. Definitely a must visit shop in Jaisalmer.

Good art emporium situated in the mediaeval narrow lanes surrounding Jaisalmer fort, Manak Chowk and Diwan Nathmal Ki Haveli where we bought our carved camel bone Ghanesh and Laxmi to help us over hurdles and towards prosperity.
