Mumbai, March 12, 2019: This March, experience the festival of Holi which celebrates the triumph of good over evil and accentuates the change of season with the onset of spring. A riot of colours, traditional dances, local delicacies, music and unabashed fun mark this most vibrant festival of India. Guests staying at Taj's authentic Grand Palaces in Rajasthan can partake in the full spectrum of grandeur with private rituals and traditions that were once observed by the erstwhile royal families.
PINK CITY OF JAIPUR
Set in the heart of Jaipur, Rambagh Palace is a historic 19th century landmark that was once the home of Maharaja Sawai Man Singh and his legendary wife, Maharani Gayatri Devi. On the eve of Holi, witness the symbolic burning of evil through the ritual of Holika Dahan, where a bonfire is lit in the palace gardens. Guests can immerse themselves in the festivities with traditional Holi songs, cultural performances and sumptuous food.
LAKESIDE CEREMONIES IN UDAIPUR
Whilst staying at Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur, guests can partake in Raang – a traditional celebration with organic colours and flowers on the shores of Lake Pichola; with drummers creating a buzzing atmosphere for the day. Built in 1746, this gleaming white marble façade rising from the surface of the lake is the perfect place to indulge in the revelries.
BLUE CITY OF JODHPUR
The magnificent Art Deco Umaid Bhawan Palace is the home of the erstwhile Jodhpur royal family and currently the world’s sixth-largest private residence.
