The spectacular collections administered by Government of Rajasthan and housed at Ajmer, Alwar, Bharatpur, Bikaner, Chittorgarh, Dungarpur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jhalawar, Jodhpur, Kota, Mandor, Mt Abu, Pali, Sikar, Ahar and Udaipur, illustrate the glorious heritage of the erstwhile Rajputana kingdoms. They display samples of India's best royal collections, archaeological findings and local crafts. Highlighting the rich cultural legacy of Rajasthan, this book offers a concise overview of the themes of these collections, with mention of the legendary royal figures and experts who envisaged these museums. It is an engaging visual record of superb artworks in stunning colour photographs, presented as a catalogue of significant objects, sculptures, paintings, weapons, crafts, terracotta ware and decorative arts. With an informative appendix containing useful information, this guide to Rajasthan's museums holds immense value for scholars, and serves as a resource for those waiting to explore Rajasthan.
