On the eve of Holi each year, they’re groomed and decorated to perfection, and paraded around the city. You can also catch a game or two of elephant polo! Apparently, the sport has quite a long and distinguished history in Jaipur. For added entertainment, don’t miss the tug of war between elephants and people.

March 17th – HOLI, THROUGHOUT INDIA – commonly referred to as the “Festival of Colors”. People exuberantly throw colored powder and water all over each other, have parties, and dance under water sprinklers. Bhang (a paste made from cannabis plants) is also traditionally consumed during the celebrations. On the eve of Holi people light bonfires to mark the occasion and ward of evil spirits. Holi is a very carefree festival that’s great fun to participate in if you don’t mind getting wet and dirty.
