Bazaars, crafts and cuisine of old Jaipur walking tour
From its creation in 1727 the royal families and nobles of Jaipur patronised the craftsmen and artisans of the city. These traditions continue to this day and as a result modern day Jaipur is considered by many as the craft capital of India. Using skills passed down through generations the jewellers, silversmiths, gold painters, meenakari and kundan artists in the areas of Ghat Darwaza and Vishveshwar ji can be seen producing many valuable and highly prized items. This fascinating two hour evening walk through the bazaars allows clients to meet these artists in their workshops whilst discovering the region’s culinary delights.
