Of course there are prayers to the Gods, but the festivities then continue on the streets as colourful street festival. The best places to celebrate holi is in the countryside.
Countryside Rajasthan is dotted with villages where you can stay in charming historical forts with the aristocratic families who have tastefully converted them into hotels. This is one of the best places to experience the festival. The entire village gathers in the courtyards of these forts to celebrate festival. The custom is to apply powdered colours on to each other. It is great place to interact with locals and experience India in all its glory. You too can experience this with Equinox India!
