****

The festival of Gangaur celebrates the union of Shiva and Parvati, and is associated with fertility and conjugal bliss. In Jaipur, a grand procession celebrates this important festival. Godess Gauri (Parvati) travels through the city involving the participants in a riot of colour, music, food and festivity.

This is undoubtedly one of the best times to visit Jaipur, and revel in the city’s markets which flow to the brim for this important event. The magical light of the month of Chaitra transforms the pink city into another spectacle altogether and there is an explosion of soft rosy hues of pink and red all over…

Our Gangaur tour will focus on experiencing the majestic regal procession, and soaking in the festival oriented special experiences of the city – from the bustle of the bazaars, to the celebratory notes floating in the city’s temples, and explore the special foods related to the festival.
