A little drop of fantasy exists in this vast land of Rajasthan. Little is known, not talked much, there lies a tiny town Bundi, in Hadoti region of Rajasthan which is set 35 km NW of Kota on NH 12.
But every year this little town grabs all eyes on it during its Annual Bundi Utsav. This three day festival is going to kick start from Nov 6 2017 and will go on till Nov. 8. 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 program includes a colourful grand procession, 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 colourful costumes light diyas or lamps on the banks of River Chambal and seek blessings.
On its second day, tourist would be taken on village tour to pottery village Thikerda.
Unlike other towns of Rajasthan which are crowded with tourists, Bundi is one place which is still able to preserve its charismatic charm. Bundi Utsav is a marvelous festival of culture, celebrations and fanfare!
