The Chokhi Dhani Experience is one Special Experience in Jaipur that will hold a special place in your memories forever! A themed-village resort, Chokhi Dhani brings together the best of Rajasthani village experiences - folk dances, musicians, traditional village fair games and rural experiences such as bullock cart rides, camel rides, elephant rides and a traditional dining experience.
There are four dining venues, all offer traditional Rajasthani cuisine. Their only difference is in the seating arrangements, which in themselves add to the experience.
Traditionally, before the concept of dining tables and chairs arrived in India, Indians squatted on the floor and dined from the plates kept on a large stool / chowki. Three of the dining venues in Chokhi Dhani offer the same experience, with the only difference being that the plates and bowls are made of interwoven dried leaves.
The fourth dining hall offers a Royal Fine Dining experience of the 21st Century with seating in dining tables and chairs and food served in silverware. Now, that is a Special Experience in Jaipur, that cannot be overlooked!!
Dance to the tunes of local folk musicians alongside folk dancers; warm yourself around the bonfires; enjoy camel rides, elephant rides, horse riding, and even a bullock cart rides - for the perfect experience of Indian village life. Step back into history at hangouts that recreate the historical and cultural moments from India's rich heritage - the Battle of Haldighati, the deity of Jungle Devta, and the Rathkhana.
Explore the National Museum at Chokhi Dhani for a one-in-all experience of India's cultural heritage - from across all states. Visit the Kalagram and shop for artefacts and handicrafts from actual artisans. And, set free the child in you, as you go about exploring caves and mazes, and play the games played by village children, before the advent of computers and mobiles.
All in all, no matter what your age, you will find yourself set free of all pre-conceived social norms and expected behaviours, as you revel in the cultural heritage of India - without stepping out of Jaipur. A visit to the Chokhi Dhani Village is one of the finest Special Experiences in Jaipur, indeed.
