The lesser known attractions of Dausa (Part-1) --- Harshat Mata - Goddess of joy

Everyone looks forward to play Holi as they find this colourful festival quite exciting but I generally try to avoid the festival as it does not excite me and I am allergic to colours also. This time there was a long break during this “Holi”so my passion of ghummakri (Traveling ) was aroused in me. 

So my great Ghumakkar (Traveller) friend Amit and I planned to visit some of the less explored places of Rajasthan. After a lot of brainstorming we decided to visit beautiful & well maintained Chand Baori – Abhaneri, ruined Dausa fort, Lohagarh fort – Bahartpur & deeg fort & deeg Palace.
