5 Things We Will Miss If JLF Is Not Held At Diggi Palace In 2017

With the negativity and controversies coming up as every edition of Jaipur Literature Festival starts, one thing is sure to get stuck for once as you don’t know whether it’ll happen or not. This year also started with a sad note on a controversy and you never know that 10th Jaipur Literature Festival will take place at Diggi palace or there will be a shift in the venue. If in any case the venue is changed, some things which will definitely be missed about Diggi palace are –

  1. Running into people we know

With people from all genres sharing a common platform, may it be an actor, minister, writer, photographer – Diggi Palace offering a small ground you may bump into someone you have never dreamt of 😉 But you never know whether the new venue will offer the same opportunity or not!



  1. Free Registration

Hosting to Asia’s largest literature festival, the Diggi palace gives the venue to attend the festival free of cost. Purchasing a ticket to attend the festival is not valid here and this is one of the greatest things that you see lakhs of people enjoying the festival in its true sense.



  1. Diggipuri Chai

The Diggi Palace is sure to have one specialty at the festival to attract more tourists to enjoy some ethnic experience, and that one thing of Diggi is its Diggipuri Chai 🙂

  1. Parking hassle

Even though the venue is centrally located, one major problem which everyone faces around this area is parking. Competing to park your car first is always fun, but even if there is dirt and garbage or a small space available, you’ll always try to adjust and accommodate in that small little space 😉 And after parking you feel free of this one headache that you drove down till the venue! Won’t you miss this parking competition at a new venue?

  1. Central Location

Centrally located in the beautiful Pink City, Diggi Palace is easily accessible from any nook and corner of Jaipur. Hotels, hospital, cafes, you name any facility, Diggi Palace is surrounded by all of them from around. Start thinking from now on as you never know whether Diggi Palace will remain the venue for the next JLF edition 🙂
