Holi in Shekhawati is indeed unique, traditional and heart-warming. In Mandawa town of Shekhawati, you will find people of all religions coming together on streets for the love of oneness and dancing to the traditional beats, forgetting all their communal differences. Women peeping from their veils, dancing men with their colorful turbans, and the stalls of bhang can be found in any street of Mandawa. A few dancing men can be seen cross-dressed i.e. men dressed as women while celebrating Holi in Shekhawati. This unusual practice has a great story behind! A great benefit of celebrating Holi in Shekhawati is that you won’t be pushed against random strangers during celebrations as the crowd is less and very-well managed by local authorities.
Let’s embark on a journey to celebrate Holi in the most unique and fun way, unravel the rich and amusing history of this region, and to give a visual treat to our eyes and click some Instagram-perfect shots. Be ready to explore the unexplored and be amazed by this hidden gem in the state of Rajasthan!
