Holi Festival, Neemrana Stepwell | Stepwell Photos
A photo of the Neemrana stepwell during the Holi celebrations.
For our third visit to Neemrana we arrived at midday on the morning of the Holi festival - the colour festival when people throw coloured water over each other.
Local men have come to the well to throw coloured powder at people and get drunk. They've succeeded and although they're friendly they're still drunk and my travelling companion is a young woman. Tsering, our friend from Ladakh, can look after herself but we're pretty isolated here and I'm concerned for her safety - and my cameras. We don't stay too long and decide to come back in a couple of weeks on a quieter day.
