Located on the mezzanine floor of Ganpati Plaza, this tiny shop is traditional Jaipur in a nutshell, literally and figuratively speaking!

Aashka is the highly successful venture of Udaipur's Princess Bhargavi and this Jaipur outlet is the brand's second store, the flagship being in Udaipur. The royal touch is evident in the luxury furniture, art forms, motifs and craft works presented in the showroom.

If you are looking for an exquisite ornament replete with the intricate workmanship and a blend of Rajasthani and contemporary design, then a good idea is to head to Dwarkas. Whatever the occasion, this store has a piece of jewel art to go with it. Located in the C-scheme area, it is some distance away from the main bazaars of the city, but once here, you'd find it totally worth the trip. Dwarkas may not yet be branded as a 'trend-setter' internationally, but with branches across India and also in cities like New York and London, Dwarkas is well on its way to achieving global fame!
