Tribal museum in Shilpgram closed since a month
Tribal Museum is locked since last one month.
Rural art centre Shilpgram is one of the hot spots for tourists in Udaipur. A large number of tourists reach Shilpgram every year attracted by its unique beauty.
Recently tourists have been reportedly disappointed as the tribal museum in Shilpgram has been lying locked since past one month. Even the concerned officers are not aware of the museum being locked. Many tourists returned from Shilpgram with a feeling of disappointment as they couldn’t see the beauty of tribal museum. The museum displays tribal art and culture, musical instruments and objects displaying their life style. But now that it is closed, tourists cannot see the beauty of tribal lifestyle.
Reportedly, the area around the museum is in a pathetic condition. Heaps of dry leaves and garbage can be seen around the museum. Even the stall owners near the museum are not aware of the reason behind this tribal museum being locked.
When the Director of Tribal Research Institute was contacted, he could not give adequate reasons behind the locked museum. It was informed that the Joint Director of TRI is responsible for tribal museum in the rural art centre. But, it was yet another disappointment that she could not be contacted.
