About Desert Cultural Center

A holiday in the desert is a unique experience. You spend your days visiting palaces and forts but when the sun goes down – the excitement doesn’t have to stop. Try something different by going for an evening puppetry show at Desert Cultural Center. This traditional art form has been a source of entertainment for children and adults all throughout Rajasthan. Expert puppet masters tell stories, folk tales and tales from the epics through their beautiful, colourfully-attired puppets. They also perform sword and folk dances. The most popular puppet shows are those that tell stories of the Mahabharata. The puppets are also available for sale and are great souvenirs to take back home. These shows are performed at the Desert Culture Center located near the Gadhisar Lake.
