Desert Cultural Center Jaisalmer, Jaisalmer Reviews
Very nice collection of old music instruments and live puppet show timing 6.30 pm everyday also museum here
Location: Jaisalmer city on Gadi Sagar Road How to reach: Take a cab or auto Rickshaw from the hotel Timings: 10 A.M. to 5 P.M. Importance: Rare coins, manuscripts are in abundance Desert cultural center and museum is a place where you will get to know about the rich cultural heritage and customs of Jaisalmer, a popular destination in Rajasthan. So if you are short on time and cannot mug up in library, this is the place to be. The place is well maintained and harbors rare coins and manuscript related to Jaisalmer history and the history of Rajasthan in whole. This museum has some eye-catching collection of traditional Rajasthani textiles, utensils, weapons, musical instruments and fossils. One thing that is very popular among foreigners is 'Karal', the traditional opium mixing box. The place regularly organizes showcase programs for tourists. Try to get there before the mentioned time in order to avoid rush.🙂
Awesome experience. This was the first I came to know about a person who has invested his 40 years in developing this cultural centre by collecting puppets and old Rajasthani traditions in the centre. I always enjoys puppet shows. The way the artists has shown us the show was breathtaking.Thanks for entertaining me.
Such a nice experience. The guide who showed us around was amazing! Really nice collection and stories.
Simple museum famous for its puppet show. It is a one man hard work. You buy the tickets and some pop corns and you are ready for a traditional puppet show. After the puppet show you get to see a small museum and you can even shop some traditional stuff!
