Missed the Jaisalmer Desert Festival? Hmmm, why not visit the Desert Culture Centre and the Jaisalmer Folklore Museum?
It is not the same as the festival experience, but close enough. The culture centre and museum, together, bring off a wonderful introduction and experience of the desert life and culture, without the pomp and fanfare of a festival.
Tucked away in a corner, away from intrusive eyes, these treasure troves of Jaisalmer offer their visitors a respite from the heat and the attention of hawkers. One might come across the owner, giving personal tours to small groups, describing each and every artefact like a proud father - one of the many reasons why this place to visit is listed as a Special Experience in Jaisalmer.
And, why not? After all, the Folklore Museum and the Desert Culture Centre are the fruits of his intensive efforts to promote local artisans. The museum is actually his private collection and includes musical instruments, religious artefacts, paintings, printing blocks, camel hide products and much more. At the Culture Centre, one can enjoy puppet shows and hear Rajasthani folk museum.
As the museum is located en-route to the Gadi Sagar Lake, one can easily combine a trip to the cultural centre with an outing to the lake on one of the days of their Jaisalmer holiday tour.
