What is so unique about Chokhi Dhani, Jaipur?

Chokhi Dhani is a pocket size Rajasthan, within Rajasthan. With the grand display of all regions of the state in one place, this place is worth a visit if you are in the city. 

From my experience:

"Chokhi Dhani is an interesting place, there is a lot to see there in such a confined space. As soon as we entered, we were greeted by a lady who applied tilak to our foreheads. What followed was a glass of hot rabri (not the one we find in Benaras, this one was made of maize) and then to music floating in the air. At different stages spread across a big ground, dancers were performing different folk dances of Rajasthan, be it Kalbelia or Ghumar. Camels and Elephants were carrying happy kids on their backs on a sightseeing trip of the place and countless stalls were serving different delicacies of Rajasthan.

A little away from there, there were different Dhanis (homes) of Mewar, Marwar etc where one could see the life as it is in those regions. There was also a mini fete where one could enjoy different games. We tried my hands at shooting and managed to bring down quite a few balloons, weren’t very successful with archery though.

We were quite famished by the end of it all and so lined up at the dining area. It was quite a long wait as many people were already waiting in front of us. Finally, after about 20 minutes, we sat down to eat, and what a meal it was ! Baati, different kinds of rotis, daals, curries, rice, khichdi, sweets, every item floating in ghee/ butter and care. The attendants of Chokhi Dhani make the dining there a pleasurable experience by their friendly demeanor and actually make one overeat. As a result, by the time we got up from our seats, we were bursting at seams."
