Dhulandi is celebrated across India on the day after Holika Dahan (the traditional bonfire) to mark the onset of spring. On this day, young and old alike play with colours and water, and the celebrations can last for the better part of the day.
The festival is celebrated in a very special way in Jaipur. The department of tourism organizes an exclusive event in the lawns of Khasa Kothi Hotel for international guests where they can take part in and enjoy the culture, food and spirit of India, besides relishing the traditional Rajasthani folk songs as well as music. After the Holi revelry, the foreign tourists are also taken around for the city tour to witness the festivities.
