Elephant Festival Jaipur. Jaipur, India. 10 March – Holi, understandably, gets all the attention when it comes to Indian festivities in March, but this one-of-a-kind cultural celebration is worth a look. Complemented by dancing, singing, music, food and fireworks, this annual festival honours the Indian elephant – considered royal and sacred on the subcontinent. Usually observed on the eve of Holi, the festival sees elephants and mahouts (elephant keepers) parade in full regalia, play polo and tug-of-war, participate in an ‘elephant decoration’ exhibition and compete in races at the Rambagh Polo Ground. jaipur.org.uk [Photo: Faraz Usmani/Wikimedia Commons]
