White Rann/Desert

White Rann offers shimmering landscape that gives the enchanting moments, feels like as Heaven On Earth. Perhaps because the landscape is so white and ochre, even a hint of colour adds a fascinating element to the rustic life of Rann. Apart from landscape photography, it offers opportunities to click visionary and creative photography also.

These palaces are blessed with a cradle of craftsmanship, they are known for their exquisite variety of weaving, patchwork, block-printing, bandhani, tie-and-dye, rogan-art and other ethnic styles of embroidery, pottery, wood-carving, metal-crafts and shell-work.
