The best place to start with it is at Govinda Dev Temple in the Garden of the Palace in Jaipur. This also takes into consideration that originally (and/or in the beginning of each Holi celebration) it is a religious ceremony.

Be there early morning, if you can; the early Arati (Mangla Arati) is in itself a very touching experience; it starts at 4:30 a.m. But you can drop in any time later,as there are several more ceremonies. The most touching part is the singing of the devotees attending, along with the extreme beauty of the decorations.

For the beginning of Holi ceremony I would not be there later than 10 a.m. on March 06.

Jaipur is a great place to see the cultural best of India. Been there many times and discovered something new at each stance.
