elephant festival Jaipur

Please note before organizing your trip to Jaipur around holi time that the govt. is no longer allowing elephants to be part of the pre- holi celebrations due to pressure from animal rights group PETA. Many tourists were unaware if this this year and were disappointed when arriving at the new " holi festival " at the polo grounds. Still some nice singing, dancing and costumes to see but not the same without the main attraction. Maybe they might return if the program only had the elephants paarade and not fight or do tug of war etc .like in the past.

1. Re: elephant festival Jaipur

well the reason you gave is diffrent from the tv news . in the news it said tourisem deaprtment not want pay lots of money to elephant owners,as they already lot of money on the festival .

However whatever is reason its not good for tourisem , tourist came here with hope and expetations ,and by this they feel cheated kind of . We hope the problam will solved and next festival will with elephant,as wich was always last 35 years.
