Two of the main events that I have attended in Jaipur are-

  1. Jaipur Literature festival is attended by thousands from India and international boundaries. It is a great platform for new writers to indulge in reading and writing sessions. Apart from all that, there are stalls of handicraft, local food, and various music dance programs are held during in the evening. Jaipur Literature Festival is an annual fest, which takes place in Jaipur in the month of January every year since 2006. Now it has become the biggest literary festival in Asia-Pacific region.
  2. Gangaur Festival- Gangaur is the most colorful festival of Pink city Jaipur. This festival is celebrated by carving beautiful idols of Lord Shiva and Parvati. This festival is observed in Chaitra during the month of March-April. In this festival, many women and girls pray for the well-being of their husbands and future husbands. On the final day of celebration, the newly carved idols are taken to johars and baori, and women bid them farewell with the hope of marital bliss.
