Barmer is in rural Rajasthan. Enroute to Barmer are villages with mud-walled houses, decorated with delicate folk motifs. All along the way, colorfully attired people offer a fascinating sight.
A lively town in sun-drenched sands, Barmer is a miniature of the state of Rajasthan with all its colour, warmth and tradition. Once on the ancient camel trade route, the town is now the centre for woodwork, pottery, carpets, intricate embroidery work, block-printed fabrics and multi-hued traditional costumes.
