Many healing practices were thus taught and also followed through workshops set up for the purpose.

Thus Rajasthan is home to many vaids (healers) and hakims. Yoga also received considerable importance during the period when the rulersheld sway. The royal families entertained experts in these fields to train local people so that they could derive the benefits of the practices. Thus there were established many schools in Rajasthan that offered cure for ailments.
