Jaipur : Chokhi Dhani

Chokhi Dhani is a unique Village Resort that showcase the spirit of Rajasthan. Chokhi Dhani literally means a prototypical village that offers an ideal rural experience. Away from the modern life the old-world charm in the resort showcase the right blend of traditions and modern amenities in a typical ethnic environment.

How to reach?

Chokhi Dhani was some 30 km from the main city. It can be easily reached by public or personal vehicles. We reached Chokhi Dhani around 8 in the evening.

The main entrance was not impressive neither the location. It was looking like just another big Dhaba, the kind we see on Murthal on Delhi-Panipat highway. Though there was a long queue for parking and we forced to park outside the parking area on highway due to lack of space.

Places to see

There were three kinds of ticket in Chokhi Dhani that included the meal charges. We took the ticket that was of 500 Rs. per person and includes the entry fee and a meal. Due to rush, our scheduled time for the meal was 10.30 on the night.

There were so many shops selling different Rajasthanis cuisine

We entered inside and I was totally surprised and impressed with its offering. It’s like a big rural party, like the one I used to see during my childhood in Sonpur, Bihar. Though Sonpur is famous for its cattle fair, but besides cattle treading there was each and every kind of activity. One can buy clothes, eat almost anything, for entertainment there were magic shows, dance programs, and hell lot of things. After so many years I felt the same madness here.

Either horse ride, came riding or bullock cart, whatever you want

Wherever I moved my eyes something was happening. I want to list the few… Kalbelia dance, magic show, palmistry, camel cart, horse riding, foreigners are dancing with small children, boating, bullock cart, a tree decorated with lamp, haveli like small houses, paintings on the wall etc. etc. etc.

Boat riding was also an option

I enjoyed a lot and the last thing I would have thought was taking a break. I want to write this in bold letters, THIS IS A TRULY AMAZING PLACE. If you ever go to Jaipur never miss Chokhi Dhani, even you can plan a trip of Jaipur just because of this place.

We started roaming around, clicked lots and lot of images, and moved to an area which had the houses where one can stay. It was most fascinating place of entire Chokhi Dhani. Havelis of different shape and sizes, beautifully designed and made of solid material like cement, still appeared like they are made of clay. With dim lighting they were looking so natural.

Where to stay?

The staying option can be arranged in Chokhi Dhani too. Otherwise Jaipur Hotels vary to suit all needs and preferences. Ranging from star hotels in Jaipur to low cost budget hotels, Jaipur has it all. There are a good number of budget hotels in Jaipur that offer good comfort and facilities at affordable prices.

What to eat?

Finally it was time to have food and it was so sumptuous that we forgot to click the images. There were 5 kinds of vegetables, 3 kinds of chapattis, curd, Sweets, Desi ghee and I don’t know what else. After the meal my only thinking was that if they fed so much then for some extra charge they should also provide a bed so that one can sleep then and there if felt so. But indeed it was a bad idea even I can’t imagine people sleeping and burping at this beautiful place. So, I scolded myself for such a bad dreaming and we came out more than happy, filled till neck, and started the engine to find a bed as soon as possible.
