Choki Dhani - Chennai Bites 2


Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers
When I watched 'Lamhe' in my school days,I instantly fell in love with Rajasthan ..My dream was to see a live performance of any song like "Morni bagama bole aadhi raath ma"..I know..I know..its too much to expect Sridevi dancing there :P..Visiting Jaisalmer was yet my unfulfilled dream..But when we get to know about Choki Dhani,we planned to go there in a weekend..And found that place even more interesting than we expected...There you can see everything related to Rajasthani culture except for the sandy deserts..It was like visiting a typical Rajasthani village..The people there were in their traditional attire..At dinner they served traditional dishes with nearly 15-18 varieties of Rajasthani cuisine...It was a truely nice experience..If you are living in Chennai,then Its a must visit for you..

Welcoming with Tika..
