Holi festival has its history to thousand years back. Different parts of the country have varied traditions. But Rajasthan has the most authentic and traditional way of celebrating it.
I got an experience to witness the true form of Holi celebration in a small village called Alsisar ( Rajasthan). This was weekend getaway during Holi Break and it can be easily done in 2-3 days, depending on your preference to extend the trip.
Alsisar is 210 kms from Delhi ( approximately 5 hours). Its neighboring the famous Jhunjhunu temple ( approximately half hour).
After reaching the small village of Alsisar, I chose to stay at Alsisar Mahal, which is an old heritage palace converted into hotel and its luxurious stay. One night would cost around 7,000/- excluding taxes and meals.
