‘Chokhi Dhani’ in Pune is all about the rural Rajasthani culture, the food, the people and the art. Vibrant and alive, Chokhi Dhani is almost like a trailer to all the gems that Rajasthan has in store for you and it is an experience worth having!
Spread across an expansive property of 7 acres, Chokhi Dhani can be best described as a “Rajasthan theme park”; yet, it is a lot more than that.
Chokhi Dhani is an experience center, a place where you can find small, intricately painted mud huts and beautifully designed sculptures. You will also spot women dressed in traditional costumes, earthen pots on their heads, doing ‘Garba’ and bands singing folk songs.
With an aim to preserve and encourage the village art, they apparently have 77 activities that are entertaining too and that you can partake in to enrich your experience and fall in love with the rural Rajasthan.
