Puppets
 
Puppetry is an ancient and popular form of folk entertainment. No village fair, no religious festival and no social gathering in Rajasthan can be complete without the kathputlis (string puppets).

With their exaggerated eyes and brightly coloured dresses, the kathputlis are simply eye-catching.

Stone Craft
 
The use of brick was almost unknown in the geologically rich land of Rajasthan which produces the country's finest marble, sandstone, quartz and slate.
 
The extraordinary craftsmanship of Rajasthani stone workers is amply visible in the numerous temples and palaces. For the connoisseur, there are life-like statues and the intricately carved pillars and jalis (latticed grilles). The finest examples of jali work can be seen in the various havelis (mansions) of Jaisalmer.
