Crafts Museum information
Set up like a traditional village, this captivating museum aims to preserve the traditional crafts of India, from handloom weaving to Mithila wall painting. Highlights include an enormous carved temple rath (chariot), a mock-up of a Gujarati haveli (house) and a shrine made from giant terracotta figures. Look out for the magnificent cloth painting of the Islamic heaven and hell, with a tiny European being tortured by snakes, centipedes and scorpions. In the rear courtyard, artisans demonstrate their skills and sell their products. Photography is only allowed with prior permission.
