Diwali in Bundi
Save

Hi

We are working out an itinerary for a trip to India. We will be in Bundi on 27 October which I believe is Diwali and wondered if anyone can tell me it we can experience it here or would be better trying to arrange being in a larger city on that date (not easy to rearrange the tour).

Thanks

It is a good idea to celebrate Diwali in smaller towns and villages. Very different experience from the impersonal big cities. You will be able to interact with simple locals and participate.

Tripadvisor staff removed this post because it did not meet Tripadvisor's forum guideline limiting each user to a single forums screen name.

What are forum guidelines?

Hi holidayobsessed,

Diwali is celebrated all across India, so you'll get to experience it wherever you go. The celebrations in smaller towns like Bundi will probably be more traditional, compared to the more commercial displays in larger cities like Jaipur (we were there around Diwali in 2018).

That being said, the only true way to celebrate Diwali is with a family of locals, because it's a very personal thing. But since you're probably staying in a homestay in Bundi, that'll be taken care of.

In case you're interested in some insight into things in an around Bundi, we visited in November last year. Here's a blog post: https://thegoodlifewithiq.com/2019/02/18/bundi-gem-off-beaten-track/

Hi there,

How wonderful it is that you are planning your Diwali trip to Bundi. Bundi is one of the most beautiful place in Rajasthan and specially if you are thinking of celebrating festivals.

During Diwali time you get to see rich culture and it gives you an opportunity to meet locals and get to celebrate with you. If you would like a great itinerary which includes Bundi then follow the route below:

Delhi - Jaipur- Tordigarh - Ranthambore-Bundi -udaipur and return to delhi.

Thanks

Harshita
