  • Quaint little Haveli housing the old world charm of organic fabrics, hand painting, block printing and natural dying. Highly recommend for DIY lovers and suckers of block print

  • A must visit to understand the history and techniques of block printing in Jaipur. A moderately big Haveli which has been restored beautifully to facilitate the museum. Though they don't have a guide or a map, the displays are fairly self explanatory. The place gets hot though, so please take enough water. The craftsmen on Level 01 will show you how to carve blocks and print on plain cotton cloth...tip them if you wish to. Their skill is really intricate and tedious. The Museum Shop is small and lacking as compared to the Anokhi shops across the country, but some of the books explaining Block Printing heritage of nearby villages, are very intriguing.
  • Nice experience to understand a so ancient and interesting art as Block printing is! Out of usual tourist's walks.
  • About 20min away from amer fort.. Where one can shop handicraft products . But dont forget to Bergen
  • Anokhi Museum is quite close to Amber fort and is a very popular sopping destination in Pink city. They offer many unique hand made products!
  • Very interesting place
