Jaipur, served on a Royal Platter πŸ‘‘

Its been two months since I am missing from the blog but It feels like ages since I have so much to share and to look forward to. Anyways I’ll start with Jaipur, Rajasthan.

The Pink City has always been a special place for us and the fact that its convinently located close to Capital is an added advantage. City offers best of hotels, royalty, vibrancy on the sides of history. I can’t even begin for the food it offers like shakes, pyaz kachori (fried onion dumplings) and Dal Battis(a local delicacy) are to die for 🀀

Every time we visit Jaipur, I have a secret plan in mind for jewellery shopping and food to hog on. Do try a Dhaba(food joint) next to Jaipur’s Bus Terminal. Its 24*7 open and food just melts in your mouth. You can’t have only one.

You must have seen pictures of Jaipur in Day, I’ll share how breathtaking it looks at night.

The Amer Fort, Jaipur

Amer Fort welcomes you first to the Pink City. As grand its looks in day, feels like a liquid Gold melting through the Night. First time I have seen Amer at night and was awestruck by its beauty.

I wonder, what It might have looked like, when the palace witnessed the royalty living through them. Just looks Majestic & Grand like a usual thing.

Dhulandi Festival 2018, Jaipur Rajasthan

Happy Holi to all of you..

Hope you had a wonderful, crazy and fun times with your loved ones.

This Holi we tried to fulfill my childhood dream to going to a holi party wearing white, playing only with dry colors, no water wastage, Live music and have crazy fun times safely.

The moment I got to know about the Dhulandi Festival’18 I was so sure to be a part of it. It was organized by Rajasthan Tourism, strictly for Foreigners and guests of Hotel Khasa Kothi in Jaipur where the event was organized.

Khasa Kothi is a heritage Hotel built by the then Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh II to provide a comfortable stay to his important (khass) guests. It was acquired by Rajasthan government years ago after we got independence. Its huge with lush green lawns, in the heart of the city.

Festival was very well organized with live music, wedding bands, local dancers, custom clad theater artists and photo booths. People were enjoying the festival in its true colors, foreigners and Indians alike.

Dhulandi Festival is organized every year by the state tourist board. You can experience this year’s craziness from our pictures below.
