Shilpgram – The Rural Arts and Crafts Complex

Shilpgram has located at 3 km in West of Udaipur, is the pride of the Nation – “the Rural Arts and Crafts complex” better known as Shilpgram. It is a living ethnographic museum depicting the enormous diversity, architecture, and lifestyles of the folk and tribal people of the West Zone.

The Complex set up in 16.1500 hectors of undulating land in the lap of Aravalli Mountains comprises of 31 representative huts of the member states. These huts incorporate the traditional architectural features and design of the different ethnic groups spread out in the corners of the western part of India. The huts are built with the traditional building material brought from the concerned region and built by the same people using these houses to preserve their authenticity.

Household articles of everyday use – whether terracotta or textile, wooden or metal, agricultural implements or craftsmen’s tools are exhibited in these traditional huts. The objective is to provide a realistic glimpse of the people and their belongings within each hut as an organic entity.

The traditional village life to a considerable extent is self-contained and self-sufficient with a potter, carpenter, blacksmith and often a weaver living alongside one another nourishing and husbanding a series of transactions. To highlight these complex yet simple relationships, these huts are constructed in an interlocking occupational theme vested with its own internal dynamism.
