Rajasthan (Rajputana) is one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. Every third foreign tourist visiting India also travels to Rajasthan. Rajasthan is among the richest states in the country as far as the field of arts and crafts is concerned. Also once known as the land of kings, it was a result of the war-like lifestyle of the people of Rajasthan which sharpened the creative senses, artistic skills and inspired them to create the most opulent and richest of treasures. Jaipur meenakari, rich traditional jewellery, ivory bangles, Lac bangles made in bright colours and sandalwood carvings and stone statues are some of the crafts available in Rajasthan. Other crafts like blue pottery, hand block printing, tie and dye, terracotta sculptures, painting on camel hide, embroidery, cloth painting, carpets, durries, inlay work on brass and wood are to be found all over Rajasthan.
