  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
    Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.

The majestic elephants are painted with multihued colours and adorned with ornaments and embroidered velvets to catch the fancy of all.

Festivities start with sound of the bankiya (trumpet) that fills every onlooker with excitement. Thereafter, follows the procession of caparisoned elephants, lancers on horses and chariots portraying the majestic outlook of the state of Rajasthan.

History

Elephant Festival

History narrates that Jataka stories of Buddhism have references of Hastimangala (the Elephant Festival). Elephants have also been considered a symbol of strength and wealth. They not only used to act as a special part during the wars but also during the royal festivities. Jaipur has always been a significant place for the British Raj and the Maharajas. Even today, elephant rides up to the Amber palace are available to give visitors the taste of royalty.

This is the reason why Rajasthan Tourism included this festival in their calendar and gives great significance to it.
