The practice of kite flying is almost synonymous with not just Jaipur, but all of Rajasthan. As kids, kite flying was an essential part of our weekend routine and now, it is time to step back into the world of nostalgia and head over to the International Kite Festival in Jaipur.

If you're a die-hard Jaipurite, then you would know exactly why kite flying was such an integral part of our childhoods. The thrill, the excitement and the joy of flying kites was unmatched and this January, you get a chance to live it all once again.

What's happening?

During the festival of Makar Sankranti, the skies of Jaipur are taken over by kites, as far as the eyes can see. This is a common practice and that is exactly why there's an International Kite Flying festival around the same time. Essentially, flying kites during Makar Sankranti is a way of celebrating the festival and spreading joy among all.

As for the kite flying festival itself, it is surely something you should experience at least once in your life. If you're not a Jaipurite, then this is something that will take you by immense surprise and we can safely say that the experience will be unlike any other you've had.

If you're a kite flyer yourself, then you can either partake in the kite war or just some friendly flying here at the festival. In case you're not a kite flyer yourself, then you can surely enjoy the views as well as the unparalleled experience. The colourful kites will fill up the sky and you're certainly going to want to take all the pictures you can- just so that you can light up your Instagram feed.

Knock Knock

When in Jaipur, it is a must to take in all the culture and heritage that you can. The kite flying festival is just another one of those old age traditions that has been going on for centuries and if you're in town, then there's no way you should miss it.

When: 14th to 16th January, 2020
