My TripAdvisor Review No.40: Dharohar, Gangaur Ghat, Udaipur

“Mesmerising Dance Performances”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014 NEW
Impressive folk dance performances in the Mewari and Rajasthani style, called ‘Dharohar’ are held at ‘Bagore ki Haveli’ every evening from 7 pm to 8 pm, and are worth witnessing. The word ‘dharohar’ means inheritance, and these artistes have taken it upon themselves to preserve the colourful culture and tradition of the region in a very beautiful way, in one of the courtyards of their old but restored Haveli.

There is an entry fee of Rs.60 per person (Rs.100 for foreigners) and Rs.100 for any type of camera. After you enter you have to find yourself a suitable place to sit around the neem tree in the courtyard, just as you would do in a Rajasthani village, and settle down for the show to start. The earlier you arrive the better your chances of getting a good vantage point to capture all the action.

The speaker welcomes you to his Land, and explains what each of the dances signifies, both in English as well as Hindi. The dances are indeed performed very well and keep you spellbound. The bright and ornamental costumes also serve to highlight the colourful traditions of the region.

There’s one slot for a puppet show in which some kids from the audience are selected to take part, making it more interactive and humorous.

This is one show you must not miss, to get an insight into the culture and traditions of Rajasthan.
