Rusirani Village

Rusirani Village, Jaipur, Rajasthan

The Basics

It feels like life hasn't changed in ages in Rusirani Village, with its dirt-track roads and agrarian way of life. It's a quiet spot to visit for travelers who are interested in seeing a side of India that's often missed by foreign visitors. Most people who come here do so as part of an organized day trip from Jaipur, sometimes with a stop at the nearby Chand Baori stepwell in the town of Abhaneri.
