Choki Dhani Resort, located in the outskirts of Jaipur, is a must visit for a wonderful experience. The place provides an authentic Rajasthani village culture in the from of its architectural design and execution. Individuals are welcomed inside through a little aarti and tikka. The place offers a variety of local attractions that could be found in a village in Rajasthan: puppeteers, palm readers, bird readers, magician, and performances such as the famous Rajasthani ghumar dances alongside fire shows. It also offers short animal rides on horses, camels, elephants and bulls. It also has a small cave built in it and one can also play games that are available at a fair. The food is also a typical Rajasthani thali, served in a Rajasthani setup. The overall experience is satisfyingly worth it.
