Makar Sankranti or Kite Festival is one of the most auspicious occasions for the Hindus, and is celebrated in almost all parts of India. But It happens best in Jaipur. . . :) Majorly all the Indian festivals are somehow connected to Harvest season and so does Makar Sankranti. Makar Sankranti is perhaps the only Indian festival whose date always falls on the same day every year on, January 14, with some exception, when the festival is celebrated on January 13 or January 15.

Hathi Gaon, or Elephant Village, at village of Kunda just a few kilometres from the Amber Fort is designed to offer stabling for over 100 elephants, as well as providing accommodation and employment for the owners, mahouts and their families. Set on thirty hectares of land, the village consists of stable blocks with attached housing, as well as a man-made lake where the elephants can swim, play – and of course get thoroughly washed down after a day in the heat and dust. The idea behind the project is that welfare groups as well as vets and government agencies will be able to better serve the Elephant community if they're all in one place. Education for their owners is high on the list of priorities.

It was built in the sixteenth century, It was build as a sort of community gathering area. A place where people could come for water, a swim, a chat with a neighbor or relax. The criss-cross of stairs, the octagonal gazebos, and the recessed doorways--this baoli is fun to walk around and photograph. It is a great place to sit and spend some time during the hot summer afternoons because the ground of the kund remains very cool during that time.
According to the local residents of the place, it is impossible for a person to use the same stairs to get down and go upstairs. It is a big mystery of the place and all the tourists visiting here try to do this.
