Culture of jaipur

The rich history of Rajasthan has contributed to its vibrant culture, reflecting in the traditions, architecture and art of the city. The splendid monuments of the city have intricate architecture which is a distinct blend of Rajput and Mughal styles. The rulers of the city hired skilled artists and craftsmen from different parts of India and the world, who settled in the city and continued their legacy. Bandhani, block printing, ‘tarakashi’, ‘meenakari’, etc. are some of the famous arts. Jaipur is famous for ‘ghoomar’ and ‘kathak’ dance forms as well as ‘tamasha’, a type of puppet dance. Rajasthani dishes such as ‘dal bati choorma’, ‘missi roti’,’ghevar’, etc. are popular across the country. The people celebrate traditional Indian festivals such as Makar Sankranti, Diwali, Eid, etc. The city hosts various fairs which represent the culture of Jaipur. Some of the famous fairs are Kite Festival, Elephant Festival and Gangaur. Jaipur Literature Festival is the largest free literary festival in the world, attended by authors and writers from across the world.
