Hats off to the man who is working towards keeping the legacy of the lost art of Rajasthan. I was surprised to see very less crowd here as compared to other places in Jaisalmer. I would encourage everyone to please visit this place and support the culture. Otherwise the day is not far when these puppets will only be used to decorate your rooms
The place is an awesome institution of Rajasthani folk art,music and creative array . The uniqueness of the native culture and the vibrant liveliness of the wonderful artists. The puppet show is very popular here. The museum also houses a lot of fascinating items that tells a lot about local culture. The puppet show time is Thirty minutes , added with 10 minutes of film on Rajasthan and a 20 minute show of Museum. The music is exotic and the instruments are unique and native which adds to the best of experiences.
