The Concept

Chokhi Dhani, meaning ‘excellent village’, is a mock Rajasthani village fair, dining and a fun place for outing with the entire family including kids. It is a concept capturing the vibrant spirit of Rajasthan and ensuring a perfect Rajasthani experience. Inbound and native tourists have a desire to experience the unique Rajasthani culture - the real Rajasthan, the villages, the paintings, the art, the wall decorations, the fresh air, the evening performances, the enthusiasm, the 'manuhaar' (a delicate request to eat till your heart’s desire), the traditions, 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 the roots and the globe trekkers to see Indian village life. The place is just away from the hustle of the city center where nature is alive, natural scenic views are ready to serve you and where you can feel the fresh air of Indian rustic villages. A place which is not too far to reach, situated on a national highway booming with peace and quiet. A place where you and your family love to come again and again...

At Chokhi Dhani, we have the best cooks from royal palaces and artisans from all over Rajasthan. Our master architect visited numerous Rajasthan villages, havelis and palaces before starting. We have collected artifacts from various parts of Rajasthan but mainly tried to make our own, so that you get the unique. We use purely hand crafted material for decoration and merged it with all modern amenities for your comfort.

Chokhi Dhani has been the mirror of Rajasthani culture since 1989. Started as part of ambiance for a restaurant, over the years it has evolved as a tasteful and authentic symbol of ethnic village life. There is a bevy of traditional entertainment – dancers, acrobats, snack stalls – as well as adventure park–like activities for kids to swing on, slide down and hide in. In addition, you can enjoy a tasty Rajasthani cuisine served with love and affection.

Spread over 15 acres of beautifully landscaped area for a rustic look, it is dotted with machaans & platforms where different folk artists perform concurrently. A village fair is created every evening as an ongoing celebration of the rich & vibrant cultural heritage of Rajasthan. The display of traditional huts and workmanship will take you back to the times when splendor was unpretentious. Experience the rich warmth and rustic charm of a typical Rajasthani Village at Chokhi Dhani - Chennai where the festivities never end!
