I can also say that, the major ancient culture and art is carried by this region. We have beautiful havelis, mahals and ancient artifacts. To find out more about these beautiful place, me and my husband explored one beautiful hotel Vivaana.
Vivaana Hotel in Rajasthan, you might have noticed the way of welcoming their guests. “Padharo Myhaare Desh” originally invented here only. Which mean you are more than welcome in our place. In Vivaana also, I was overwhelmed by the way of welcome. They showered flowers from top and playing Nagada, was a total different experience I felt.
Highly recommended for the food, hospitality, stay. It is a perfect getaway, just 159.9km from Jaipur.
