Let’s have a look what we have in store and we are sure all the coming action will set your mood to pack your bag to come to the city.
1. Lohri Festival
Though the festival of Lohri originated from Punjab but the Jaipurites are so fun loving that they don’t want to miss out the chance of any sort of fun and dhamaal and that’s the reason Lohri is celebrated and enjoyed a lot in our lovely pink city. There are many areas in Jaipur which are dominated by Punjabis thus the beautiful sight of people, friends and family dressed in bright colored attires, singing and dancing to the drum beats along with bonfire is common. Remember, it’s just not the festival of one community but is celebrated by all besides savoring mouth-watering delicacies 🙂
2. Kite Festival
Every year Makar Sankranti is held on 14th January, the time when you must visit Jaipur, where the annual Kite Festival takes place. The view of the multitudes of kites flying in the sky is surreal. It’s no exaggeration when we say the sky is covered with beautiful kites in myriad hues, designs and shapes and is almost like a rainbow REDEFINED!
The sound of ‘Wow Kata’, high-pitched music will just not leave you awestruck but you will come to know what the lively and colorful Pink City is all about 🙂
