Sadri, a seemingly popular commercial centre of the Ranakpur area, greets you at the chowraha, or the town centre with a multitude of color and shops around with saleable ranging from kitchenware, fancy clothes and general ware to traditional ware and jewellery.
The mini township is equipped with the indigenous Indian Sanitary system, wherein at both sides of the road there flows a narrow stream of drainage water, passing from under the steps of the shops and the houses.
The multihued town of Sadri actually looks like a huge painting; it is near impossible to find so many colors at a place at once-colorful houses, colorful clothes and colorful jewelry. The colorful houses with blue walls and green wooden doors are bliss to look at. The walls of the narrow, dwindling, twisting and turning by-lanes of the village are adorned with spiritual messages and messages praising the Mother Cow. The traditional colorful ghaghara-cholis will not miss your eyes; complete with the thick white bangles adorning the ladies’ arms right up till the shoulders, reminding you of Dimple Kapadia from the National Award-winning film Rudaali.
Explore the bylanes of this town to discover interesting sites & sounds.
