I live in a heritage city which has a history dating back to a couple of centuries. Vadodara is also known as Baroda. The city is full of hundreds of Banyan trees, Vad known in hindi and hence the name `Vadodara'.. The land of Banyan trees.
Recently, there was Vad-fest. International festival of art and culture. Yanni performed here at this venue that you see below. Laxmi Vilas Palace.
Below is Kirti Mandir, a palace built for a queen
All these pictures from this stall. Not the real structures
There was a loom on display
Wooden furnitures on display and sale. I liked the blue stand. Could be made use as a plant pot stand
Can you believe... These are hand painted on canvas
Now comes handicrafts using glass beads. All hand stitched using myriad colours. Patience, accuracy and speed are required
The ones you see below are also hand woven. These adorn the doors of a home
So delicate and dainty
Intricately carved wooden door
This is real India, a country with rich heritage.
