Although i have visited Ajmer lots of times, never had enough time to explore anything other than the Dargah Shareef. During this stay though, i had a couple of days in Ajmer.
The concierge of our hotel, The Embassy was courteous enough to suggest this place to have the true experience of Rajasthan.
I must say it is a fair distance away from Ajmer, about 15 kms from the city.
Upon arrival, you are greeted with the traditional tilak and young dancers welcome you inside.
The place is absolutely brilliant. Once you go there, you can experience everything Rajasthani, from the folk dancers, to the puppeteers, to the hookah and finally the delicious rajasthani meal.
We reached the place well after the evening, so could spend only 3 hours there. If you want to experience the whole place, try to arrive around 6 in the evening. The place is great for kids also and the highlight of the experience is the food. You are treated in a way which is nothing short of how royalty is treated by the persons serving you and the taste of everything
there is to die for. All persons there make you feel very comfortable.
All this for Rs 300 per person is a very good deal.
Totally recommended for everyone.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Swad Ri Dhani is a concept to join the rajasthani tribes from the world. Nowadays tourists are very much aware of rajasthan and its culture. But still they are far-far away from its roots. They know only a state of Kings... a place of snake charmers... and an emerging handicraft's industry. But real rajasthan is still there in villages, the paintings..., art Bani Thani..., the wall decorations..., the cow dung plaster..., the pure food..., the fresh air..., the evening performances, the enthusiasm, the 'manuhar' (mouthful catering), the traditions, the costumes and at last but not least the feelings. ... more less
