Rupayan Museum


A unique ethnographic museum, preserving the objects, crafts and tools of ordinary people and their creations for daily needs, is coming up in Moklawas village on the outskirts of Jodhpur in western Rajasthan. The museum was conceived by the internationally acclaimed folklorist, the late Komal Kothari, as his dream project.

The museum, being constructed on 10 acres of land allotted by the State Government, is proposed to be the centre of learning on the "technology of living".

"Whatever the people are creating for their day-to-day needs will form the lifeline of the museum dealing with the contemporary life" quoting the Chairman Nihar Kothari, of Rupayan Sansthan which looks after the project.
