Beautiful Kite Festival of Jaipur in India

What is Kite Festival of Jaipur?

 

If you ever thought of visiting Rajasthan in Northern India, then you should definitely visit its capital Jaipur too as I am sure you will enjoy it. The best time to visit the so called Pink City is in the middle of January as on the 14th January Kite Festival Jaipur takes place there.

Jaipur is known as one of the best places of festivals in India. The festival happens on the 14th January to mark the transition of the sun from Sagittarius (dhanu rashi) to Capricorn (makara rashi). It is said that northward journey of the sun, called Uttarayan in India, begins on the day of Makar Sankranti which is the reason of celebrating Kite Festival of Jainpur.

How to get to Jaipur?

You would be surprised how many flights there are from the UK and also other European countries to India. When flying from London, you might consider leaving your car at the Gatwick Airport parking until you come back. India is very budget friendly if that’s what you are looking for but they also welcome any tourist, from backpackers to luxury travelers like me … or even those very wealthy ones who can stay in the world’s 2nd most expensive hotel – Raj Palace Hotel where the Presidential suite costs more than $45,000 per night?!

What else to do in Jaipur?

Visiting Jaipur would not be worth it only if you went there to spend a day at the beautiful Kite Festival of Jaipur. The city of more than 3 million inhabitants offer something to every traveler. In 2008 Jaipur was ranked the 7th best place to visit in Asia which says a lot, right? The good news for you … it’s dry season in Jaipur in January so you will be able to walk around the city as much as you can without any rain drops (remember the moonsoon season is June to September and the hot summer months are April to July.)

All around the city you will find uncountable temples, gardens, gates, performing arts, other festivals, forts and other monuments – many of pink colour which gave the nickname to Jaipur – Pink City.
