Welcome to Sanganer & Bagru
The village of Sanganer, about 12km south of Jaipur, has essentially been engulfed by urban sprawl. It boasts a ruined palace, a group of Jain temples with fine carvings (to which entry is restricted) and two ruined tripolias (triple gateways). The main reason to visit, however, is to see its handmade paper and block-printing shops, workshops and factories (mostly found around the main drag, Stadium Rd), where you can see the products being made. You can also walk down towards the riverbank to see the enormous, brightly coloured fabrics drying in the sun as they hang on huge racks. If you have the time, consider venturing further west to Bagru village, where block-printing is still a small, family-based undertaking.
