Jaipur City Palace, Jaipur, India.
Souvenirs in the pretty beach state of Goa are of various types and are mostly made of easily available materials like coconuts, sea-shells, paper, beads and brass. The uniqueness of Goan crafts lies in Goa’s multicultural history. The crafts of Goa bear influences of Hindu, Muslim and Christian origins. However, instead of bearing the distinctive elements of each of these cultures, they present an artistic amalgamation of all three. Fascinating indeed! Here are some of the coolest things you can hope to find on your holiday to Goa.
Jodhpur was founded in 1459 by Rao Jodha, a chief of the Rathore clan. It flourished quickly, fuelled by profits from opium, sandalwood, dates, and copper trade. The city has a charming blue tinge to it when viewed from above or from a distance, and makes a pretty mean picture. With its imposing Mehrangarh fort dominating the skyline, Jodhpur is hard to not be impressed by. The new city is definitely chaotic, but foray into the narrow lanes of the old city, and you’ll find pots, pans, idols, bejewelled fabrics, sensual spices, traditional clothes, ornaments and metalware all jammed between rows of shops, tinsel, stalls and hoards of haggling women! A shopper’s paradise, Jodhpur is famous for its richly carved furniture, metal arts, lahariya bandhini textiles and traditional footwear.
