Vivid Glimpses of Jaipur this Week!

The month of Bhadon or monsoon is full of celebrations, festivities and traditional hustle-bustle in Rajasthan. Especially, the week that was! With Eid-ul-Fitr, Sinjara and Badi Teej spanning the week, Pink City witnessed prayers, celebrations, preparation of traditional recipes and some very colourful cultural events in the city.

There’s no better way to experience the vibrant culture of fascinating Jaipur than attending the festival of Teej, and attending the traditional royal procession, called the Teej Maata Ki Sawari, led by decked up elephants, musical bands, chariots and folk performers through the walled city. Each year it begins from the Tripolia Gate of the City Palace in the evening, and ends with the immersion of the idol in a lake. This time the idol was ssubmerged in the Taal Katora pond. Here are some hues and highlights of the procession:
