Holi festival in Pushkar?

Hi we are traveling to India in March and I really want to experience the crazy colourful powder-throwing side of the Holi festival. I know they celebrate it this way in Delhi - but it is likely we will be in Pushkar on the 27th. Could someone tell me if they celebrate Holi in the same fashion as Delhi or is it a more subdued atmosphere in Pushkar?

Thanks :)

Hi bic-tastic,

Holi festival celebration in Pushkar is more interesting.

People through colours ( powder and water) . They don't hesitate to through on unknown person.

You may avoids to goes very far from.your hotel .it can be celebrate in hotel complex or just out side of your hotel.

Late afternoon ends this celebration

enjoy Pushkar Holi,

Yogendra

I think you should play holi at puskhar because it would be awesome rather than Delhi.

You can feel this colorful Indian fest with traditional colors tht you have never seen before.

Thank you to visit our beautiful India.:-)

Holi will be on the 17th . Wherever in Indi you may be, Holi should follow you. But Holi in Pushkar is beyond mind blowing. Going there myself this time.
