One of the most important events in Udaipur, for tourism and the local community, is the Shilpgram Utsav that occurs in the village of Shipgram, just eight kilometres from the main city. This 10-day festival held in December, right in the peak tourist season, is a showcase of some of India’s most ancient and intricate handicrafts from Rajasthan and beyond. Witness the skills that go into hand-making exquisite products like wooden objects, jewellery or textiles – and pick up as many as you can as perfect vacation souvenirs and gifts to take back home!
There are other celebrations too, like Diwali or Teej Festival, but these three are surely the highlights of the year. If you’re interested, intimate SOTC and an Udaipur package will be recommended accordingly.
