The Arna Jharna, Jodhpur is considered to be the brainchild of a leading oral historian and folklorist, late Kama Kothari. This completely breaks the notions as well as the perception of what a museum should look like. Rather than being housed in a four walled room, like a typical museum this place is all about celebrating the wide open spaces of the desert and also about exploring the flora and fauna in a far more natural environment for understanding the place better.
All those people who are keen to more about the rural life and the practices performed here and the knowledge systems related to it, should certainly visit this place. Instead of focusing on the artistic and ethnographic aspects of various objects, the museum prefers to throw light on the development of social relationships which actually brought around because of these objects. The museum is brimming with a rich biodiversity, and is quite hard to see and believe that now the lush 10 acre spread was once a sandstone mine. A lot many numbers of events and workshops are held in this museum.
