Visit a sword maker family
A visit to a rare sword making family in Udaipur to learn about the history of the delicate and ancient art of Koftgari.
The art of Koftgari is the intricate and incredibly skilled art of sword making. It was bought into India by Persian craftsmen after the Mughal invasion in the 16th century. The patronage of the Rajasthan Kings meant that this art form has flourished in Udaipur. The swords are made by inlaying gold and silver wire onto iron swords. The family you will visit are one of the very last who practice this craft to make swords and daggers. Your expert guide will translate any questions you have for the family and will teach about the delicate process.
