The art and craft of Jaipur is very elegant and praiseworthy. Their miniature painting, Kundan and Meenakari Jewellery and kurtis designed with mirrors are worth purchasing.

Hey Byzantine, Jaipur is known for innumerable crafts like pottery, carved furniture, Bandhani, block printing, stone carving and sculpture. And as Amrita said, miniature paintings are really worth buying. These paintings are one of the best crafts in Jaipur. It is said that the origin of miniature paintings lie in the history of Rajasthan. Do you know Byzantine, the prior rulers of Jaipur were so fond of arts and crafts that they used to invite skilled artisans and craftsmen from abroad as well.

Jaipur is mostly famous for the marble handicrafts made there. The most traditional and popular marble handicrafts manufacturers are located in Jaipur. So we can defiantly call it craft capital of India.
