Rural Rajasthan Tours
There are agricultural and pastoral settlements; villages that have become pilgrimage centres; there are settlements along the river bank or wherever
water is to be found, fortified shelters offer sanctuary , while jobs are to be found in mining towns and at seasonal fairs or melas. The central
place is occupied by either a village well or a temple.
Rajasthan, especially the villages have been always a rich source of antiques. However so much of the old objects are sold out to the big hotels or have been brought out of the country already since the English ruling time in Rajasthan that not much is left in the state as real antiques. What you see as Antiques today in Rajasthan may not actually be antiques. As there are techniques available where the new articles can be made look like old. Most of the tourists are attracted by this kind of articles. We at Indo Vacations advice to get the proper and authentic papers for the articles which are claimed at antiques and be careful as real antiques may not be exported out of the country.
