Posted By : / 1392 0

Bundi festival includes a colorful Shobha Yatra, arts & crafts fair, ethnic sports, cultural exhibition, classical music & dance program, turban competitions, bridal clothing, musical band competitions, and a sparkling fireworks display.

Bundi is a picturesque location in the Hadoti district of Rajasthan. The palaces and forts of Bundi have a fairy tale feel about them.The town is quite isolated from the maddening rush and crowd of adjoining cities and thus at times appears like a beautiful frozen painting.

The Bundi Festival is celebrated in the month of Kartik (October-November) and includes several spiritual and traditional activities. It is a remarkable cluster of traditional art, culture and craftsmanship and visitors are left charmed by its magnificence.

The Aravalli range dotted with forts and palaces gives you a fairytale feeling during your India travel. The Bundi Utsav is not only a major occasion in the state but also an important festival of India. The otherwise isolated town becomes a bustling one with the Utsav date approaching. This festival in Rajasthan is integral to the month of November.

Bundi Festival Date – 06 – 08 November 2017

The program includes a colorful Shobha Yatra, arts & crafts fair, ethnic sports, cultural exhibition, classical music & dance program, turban competitions, bridal clothing, musical band competitions, and a sparkling fireworks display. Early in the morning, after the full moon night of Kartik Purnima, women and men clad in attractive colorful costumes light diyas or lamps on the banks of River Chambal and seek blessings.

Even outside the festival dates, for any traveler who is passing through southern Rajasthan, Bundi is a great halt, as it has great heritage hotels and traditional Havelis to offer along with affordable delicious Rajasthani cuisine.
