International Kite Festival
Makar Sankranti or 14th January is celebrated with a lot of fanfare and color every year. Red, blue, yellow, green, pink, orange, fushcia, indigo, ochre, gold and silver kites dominate the enchanting Jaipur skyline and add a romantic touch to ethereal pink Jaipur monuments.
Celebrated for three consecutive days, the International Kite Festival in Jaipur reflects a spirit of joyous happiness and gay splendor.
The international Kite Festival in Jaipur is a three-day festival that is inaugurated near the Jaipur Polo Ground and is divided into two clear sections. One a "Kite War" and the other a "Friendly Kite Flying Session."
The Kite War is the most engrossing part of the fascinating International Kite Festival and fills you with joyous excitement, thrill and eager anticipation. You are most welcome to participate with your set of kites and compete with Kite flying aces who come from far and wide to participate in this happening event.
The Kite Fight takes place on the delightful Umaid Bhawan Palace Lawns and works everyone up into a state of delightful frenzy.
Jaipur comes alive with delightfully patterned paper kites that adorn the clear blue skies with an indescribably joyous spirit and happy gaiety.
