We had heard about Shilpgram as an arts and craft centre and thought we would just browse around for a while and leave. But as we entered we realised it had a lot more. We started with a camel ride which we just wanted for some pictures. The camel owner guided us through the different huts in the complex. On the way we saw many stalls selling ethnic items. Each shop was given to the manufacturer of the item for a fixed period of time. The products were genuine and were value for money as they were directly sold by the person who created them. We went to a pottery stall and purchased a couple of things. The potter invited us to try our had on the potter's wheel. We loved the offer and made a few diyas with his help. It was a memorable experience. The camel leather shoes, meenakari jewellery, miniature paintings and woollen shawls made on handloom were worth a buy. We were disappointed by the restaurant as they overcharged us for lunch. But we wished we had more time to spend at Shilpgram. Be sure to visit the place!
