The Desert Museum of Rajasthan is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Jodhpur. The words arna and jharna mean jungle and spring, respectively. The idea behind this unique attraction of Moklawas village was conceptualised by Komal Kothari (a renowned verbal historian and folklorist) and executed by his son Kuldeep Kothari. Arna Jharna is an interactive place that depicts the lifestyle of people living in the villages.

Spread over an area of about 10 acres, the museum displays a variety of brooms belonging to different rural communities along with a unique collection of utensils. The artefacts are basic yet intriguing as they represent the socio-ecology aspects of people of different cultures.

Artists and researchers can participate in the various workshops conducted here. Besides, exclusive folk music sessions are also held at the museum, attracting a large number of visitors from places near and far.
