As we all know, India is full of festivals. And no, we are not talking just about the main ones—Holi, Diwali, or other prominent occasions; we are talking about the unknown ones that highlight different art forms or genres of the country. Here is the list of these festivals that you must visit:
Celebrating its 32 years feat this year, Surajkund International Crafts Mela is widely popular across the country for the showcase of the finest handloom handicrafts, and famous Indian cuisines. There are also cultural programs and amusement zones for children, making it a family entertainment. It is held every year in February in different places basis the theme—and this year, Uttar Pradesh has been the chosen state.
If old havelis (mansions) belong to your fascination list, then this festival is sure to be on the top of it. The Shekhawati region of Rajasthan is famous for the old-painted havelis where you can visit and see the locals exhibit their skills and talent. Besides, you can wallow in the farm rides, cultural programs, arts and crafts workshops, fireworks, and much more.
The Taj Mahotsav takes place at the end of February every year at Shilpgram in Agra, right near the eastern entry to the Taj Mahal. The festival focuses on arts, crafts, the culture of the country, and recreating the Mughal era. The elephants, camels, and drummers are the highlights of this festival. It gets better for kids who can indulge themselves in games, much less elephant and camel rides.
