Chokhi Dhani is a concept to join the Rajasthani tribes from the world.

 

Nowadays tourists are very much aware of Rajasthan and its culture. But still they are far-far away from its roots. They know only a state of Kings... a place of snake charmers... and an emerging handicraft's industry. But real Rajasthan is still there in villages, the paintings, art Bani Thani, the wall decorations, the cow dung plaster, the pure food, the fresh air, the evening performances, the enthusiasm, the 'manuhar' (mouthful catering), the traditions, and the costumes and at last but not least the feelings.

 

At Chokhi Dhani we bring that all for you. Our aim is to preserve and encourage the village art and culture, to get today's generation closer to their past, to change the philosophy of world about Indian village culture. For example, most of the people think that cow dung is a dirty thing and contains germs, but reality is cow dung has the power to control many diseases, it is an anti-septic, and it controls mosquitoes. That is why in villages people put its plaster on the walls.

The dining hall - Sangri is renowned for the mouth-watering and typical Rajasthani food, served to you in the tradition of Manuhaar. Your taste buds will remember this treat for a long time, while the warmth of service will stay in your heart forever. (Clarified butter) as the medium of cooking.

 

A favourite sweet dish called lapsi is prepared with broken wheat (dalia) sautéed in ghee and sweetened. Perhaps the best-known Rajasthani food is the combination of dal, bati and churma (dal is lentils; bati is baked wheat ball; and churma is powdered sweetened cereal), but for the adventurous traveller, willing to experiment, there is a lot of variety available.

 

The ancient princely state of Rajasthan gave rise to a royal cuisine. Even today, Rajasthani princely feasts flaunt royal cuisines that are incomparable. Their food cooked in desi ghee is famous for its mouth- watering aroma. Rajasthan's tastiest curries are based on the use of pulses or gram flour. Dry fruits, spices and yogurt are used in many delicacies. Rajasthan can also boast of a vast array of savouries and sun-dried snacks. Be it dal baati and churma or missi roti, one always ends up licking his fingers.

 

Your tummy will scream "No more!" But you won't stop!!!

Haldighati

The epic battle of Haldighati and its glorious history is recreated at Chokhi Dhani cultural village. In 1576, the Haldighati battle was fought between 20,000 Rajputs against a Mughal army of 80,000 men where Maharana Pratap showcased exemplary valor. We have beautifully built the Haldighati mountain pass and preserved its details.


Scenes & Stores of the Historical Battle

Financial Support by Bhamashah:

He was a noted Mewar general, and as a great patriot he was later promoted to the post of prime minister by Maharana Pratap. Bhamashah acted as an advisor, confident and close aide of Maharana Pratap. There was a time when Maharana Pratap had no resources to continue the battles. Bhamashah and his brother Tararchand showed extraordinary example of patriotism and generosity by presenting their wealth consisting of 20,000 gold coins and 2,500,000 rupee. Maharana Pratap, the most heroic and legendary Rajput ruler was pleased to receive the support from one of his closest generals. Today we have Bhamashah memorial in Udaipur, Indian postage stamp issued in 2000 and State level Bhamashah award in his honor.


Ghas Ki Roti:

After the battle of Haldighati, Maharana Pratap and his family took refuge in the forest. During the struggle in the jungle, Maharana Pratap had nothing to eat and they had to eat rotis made of grass. One can’t image how it would have been to eat ghas ki roti. There was a time when Maharana Pratap daughter’s ghas ki roti was stolen by a cat and he felt terrible that he decided to surrender to Akbar, the Mughal king. Akbar was elated receiving the letter of Pratap’s surrender and asked his general Prithiraj to speak with Maharana Pratap. Prithiraj couldn’t believe the news about Maharana Pratap’s surrender and he then wrote an inspiring letter to Maharana Pratap to continue as a great king of Mewar and give a fierce battle field to Akbar.


Jauhar Kund:

Jauhar also spelled as Jowhar was the practice of self-immolation on a pyre. Jauhar was committed thrice by more than 13,000 ladies and children of the Rajput heroes who laid their lives in battles at Chittorgarh Fort, first led by Rani Padmini wife of Rana Rattan Singh who was killed in the battle in 1303, and later by Rani Karnavati in 1537 AD. Jauhar Kund, the place where Rajput women committed sati after the defeat of their husbands in battle to avoid mistreatment and didn’t surrender to the ruling sultan. The Haldighati yudh, the beautiful Haldighati yellow pass, and the heroes of the Haldighati battle are all well recreated and its historical details are preserved at Chokhi Dhani Village.
