Jaipur’s Cultural Heritage
Rajasthan is one of the most beautiful states of India due to the ancient history and art heritage. Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, is also the textile capital of India, with wooden printing block carpenters showing off traditional authentic carving on every corner. Hand block printing factories, embroidery and dyeing villages frequent the more remote areas – all embedded in the history of Indian textiles. Jaipur also has strong cultural routes in its shopping habits as well. The many traditional bazaars throughout the city offer all sorts from jewellery to carpets, from leather work and antiques. These beautiful crafts are omnipresent throughout Jaipur due to centuries of prior rulers inviting skilled artisans, artists and craftsmen, locally and globally, to make Jaipur their home.
