The collections managed by Government of Rajasthan and housed at Ajmer, Alwar, Bharatpur, Bikaner, Chittorgarh, Dungarpur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jhalawar, Jodhpur, Kota, Mandor, Mt Abu, Pali, Sikar, Ahar and Udaipur, illustrate the glorious heritage of the erst-while Rajputana kingdoms. They display samples of India's best royal col-lections, archaeological findings and local crafts. Highlighting the cultural legacy of Rajasthan, this book offers a concise overview of these collec-tions, with mention of the legendary royal figures and experts who envis-aged the museums. This volume is an engaging record of artworks in stunning colour photographs, presented as a catalogue. With an informa-tive appendix containing useful information, this guide to Rajasthan's museums holds immense value for scholars, and serves as a resource for those waiting to explore Rajasthan.
