Where to play safe Holi in Jaipur for Tourists

by Dee_P

We will be in Jaipur for the Elephant Festival and for Holi this year.
However, we have heard that Holi can be messy and not too safe for tourists. Does anyone know of anywhere safe to play holi? Like a Government sponsered Holi or any reccomendations would be most welcome.

Thankyou

There is NO safe place during Holi festival- it is a complete free-for-all.
Everyone gets into the madness, and there is no escape. Be prepared for a messy but fun time. The streets will all be crowded, and ganja smoking is popular at this particular festival. If you really want to avoid it- best to go to some area outside the city, like Amber Fort. Even there it might get festive.
Wear old clothes and protect your eyes.

Hi Lynne,

Thanks for your comment.

I read somewhere that the RTDC hotel holds a government sponsered Holi. I've emailed them but not had a response. So was just wondering whether any else knows of one.

Dee= Government sponsered or not- things will still get wild. EVERYONE (GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS INCLUDED) gets a little crazy at Holi.
It won't be (or should not be) dangerous- just very messy.

Hey Lynne,

Yeh - I know how messy it gets. I went to Gujerat a few years back and was there during Holi. It was good fun and very messy. But Gujerat, there is no alcohol, so I think that made a difference. With Rajasthan, everywhere we have read it states to keep away as it gets very mad, in terms of the drunken.

I am from jaipur and I must advice you not to roam around in the city on Holi. Things get really rough by afternoon and yes Alcohol is one of the factor.

Overall its a great festival to participate. Use lot of oil on your body to avoid the colors sicking to the skin. Try and cover your head. I also take all these precaution every year but still end up spending more then an hour bathing :-) Just freak out with colors and people in this city.

The Elephant festival is scheduled for 28th Feb this year. The details are on tourism dept. web site link is :

Daer guest,
Greetings from krishna on Holi.
The festival is Good but you keep some distance from people not use colours
because some time some peoples are elergic with colours thats why other wise all festivals are good if you make them in a good way.
Thanks
krishna

It's not dangerous, just colourful ;

Wear plain white 'sudhras' & 'lenghaas'. So, people can see you've been 'tangoed', and ease up on you.

Take precautions like barrier cream, as some folks use strong colours!

And be careful with your hair!!!

I visited the Elephant festival and loved every moment of it. These are some of the shots I have taken of the festival.

Travel Tips for Jaipur

Viewing Hawa Mahal from across the street

by Willettsworld

There's a perfect place to view the famous facade of the Hawa Mahal from across the street. I got called too and offered the chance to view it by a young chap and then taken upstairs to a balcony where other tourists were standing and taking photo's. Word of warning though. You will be pestered to buy something from the shop but they didn't get anything from me!

See some wildlife -Ranthambore

by lynnehamman

Ranthambore National Park is only 130kms from Jaipur- certainly worth a day trip, or even a day/night trip. There is a very nice Government-run guest house in the park (we stayed here) and cost was reasonable.
The park is located in the eastern part of Rajasthan . Nestled between the Aravali and Vindhya mountain ranges, Ranthambore used to be the hunting ground of Maharajas of Jaipur. The Park is perfect for lovers of wild-life. Various natural rivers and man-made lakes flow here, and the park is especially beautiful after Monsoon.
Ranthambore National Park is purported to be one of the best tiger reserves in India. The tigers can sometimes be seen during the day, at the waterholes.
The park has dense deciduous forests and excellent birdlife, a wide variety of flora and fauna, water-buffalo ,buck and hippos
Ranthambore Park is also classified as a heritage site. There are ruins of old monuments, chattris and cenotaphs.
The oldest fort in Rajasthan is the imposing Ranthambore Fort. Quite a steep climb- but worth every step.
Hiring a car with driver to get to Ranthambore should not be a problem from Jaipur.
Once inside the park- private or shared jeeps, with experienced guides, will take you through the various routes- keep your eyes peeled- you may see a Tiger (or Tiger with cubs).

For more info on Ranthambore Park and Fort -see my Sawai Madhopur page

MANZOOR Ali Khan

by g72

He cans getting around you in JAIPUR and suburbs. He is very cheap ( for all the day only 300 Rs ) and is a good man like a friend.
He cans help you to avoid the other PUSHING guides and the others rickshaw-man more pushing that the guide.If you don't want go to store ,Manzoor don' t take you there. And is very much important for travel in India to trust in someone.

Meet the Maharaja of Jaipur

by mariocibelli

Was so busy taking pictures of the others that I am not in any. The very hospitable Maharaja gave a great tea for us and later joined us at a party we had at one of his former palaces on the outskirts of Jaipur.

Hawa Mahal- The Wind Palace

by lynnehamman

Built in 1799 by order of Maharajah Sawai Pratap Singh, this pink confection of a building is part of the city palace complex. I call it a pink confection because my first impression of it was that of a giant pink honeycomb cake. The design and shape was meant to resemble that of Krishnas crown. It is built from red and pink sandstone, highlighted with white.
Comprising of 5 stories, there are no stairs- only ramps to ascend.The entrance courtyard has 3 sides of 2 story height, and the eastern (street facing) side is 3 stories high, and has width of exactly one room.
The Front of the Wind Palace has 953 windows, covered with carved lattice filligree windows, which allows a cool breeze to circulate through the building. This frontage was designed so that the ladies of the zenana, (who held strict purdah) were able to look down and watch street activity without themselves being seen.
The architectural style is Rajput (Chatris) but softened with touches of Mughal (delicate curved arches and marble inlay ornamentation.).
There are fine views of Jaipur form the top floor of the building.
