TRAVEL BLOG: A visit to Rajasthan’s small village setup at CHOKHI DHANI

Aditi Shinde, student of Saksham Sanchar Foundation shared her experience at Chokhi Dhani,Jaipur.

Around 20 kilometres from the main city of Jaipur, there is a mock village called ‘Chokhi Dhani’. It represent Rajasthani culture, food, traditions and heritage. The name Choki Dhani literally translates to Rajasthani culture.

I visited this place in the month of October. It was a good experience to get feel of Rajasthani culture. The welcome begins with the ram ram sa! It has a unique charm of its own, with mud-plastered walls, mud huts, and decorated walls that transport you to the Rajasthan. Lit up with lanterns, beautiful Rajasthani dances, puppet shows, fire shows.

They welcomed us with a welcome drink that was piping hot made of buttermilk and Bajra. We then entered the dinning hall where we have to sit on floor and ate the food served on a thali with many ‘donas’ made of leaves.
