Any suggestions to the following would be appreciated. I will be in Chennai for about 2 weeks before hand and Mumbai and Delhi at the very end for three and four days each. My interests are textiles, weavers, dyers, architecture and tribal culture.

2 days New Delhi
14 days CHENNAI
2 days KESROLI
2 days SAMODE
3 days JAIPUR
2 days KHIMSAR
2 days OSIAN
2 days ROHET
2 days JODHPUR
2 days NARLAI
2 days SHAPURA
2 days BUNDI
2 days UDAIPUR
2 days AMLA
2 days DHAR (Ujjain/Mandu)
1 day INDORE
4 days MUMBAI (Collapse)
3 days NEW DELHI

This will be my third trip to Rajasthan. I want to visit more discreet places than the forts and palaces. Any suggestions: museums,architectural wonders,artisans (weavers and dyers),restaurants,textile shops, tribal villages . I will be traveling with a car and driver and I plan on taking it easy. HAHAHA I still want to see it all but time has slowed me down just a little bit. Trying to focus on textiles and art in general. However, I tend to think of India as example of art-- some of it divine and some of it less than divine.

If you can make it to Ahmedabad (Gujarat) there is a Textile Museum there which is meant to be very interesting.

Out our way, there is a plethora of textiles, folk embroidery etc. Also there is weaving being done by the Khadi Bhandar people, in a place not far from Narayan Niwas Palace hotel.

You can see dhurries (thick cotton carpets) being woven in Bishnoi villages out of Jodhpur.

Udaipur and Bundi are good for miniature paintings.
Every cloud has a silver lining!
