Rajasthan

Rajasthan – the land of Rajasthanis often looked as the land of the kinds or the land of colours. Rajasthan as a state is the largest state in India in terms of area. It encompasses most of the area of the large, inhospitable Great Indian Desert. One of the world's oldest mountain ranges, the Aravalli Range, cradles the only hill station of Rajasthan, Mount Abu, famous for Dilwara Temples, a sacred pilgrimage for Jains. Eastern Rajasthan has the world famous Keoladeo National Park near Bharatpur, famous for its bird life and is a World Heritage Site and two famous national tiger reserves, Ranthambore and Sariska Tiger Reserve. The land of beautiful, majestic palaces and havelis.

The state still retains its elusive fairy-tale character. A state, the very mention of which brings to mind – colour, brave people – the Rajputs, the land of the kings, a place where hospitality is engrained in the people.

A place which is endowed with natural beauty and a great history. Here, folk culture still retains all its colour and vivacity with exuberant celebrations of fairs and festivals, a music that echoes across the desert emptiness and a tradition of craftsmanship with a highly developed aesthetic sense. The land still comes alive everyday with stories of great warriors that once resided in the numerous forts & palaces

Begin your desert adventure at Jodhpur, a fortress-city at the edge of the Thar Desert. Then travel to Jaisalmer to see its unforgettable golden fortress. The trade route outpost of Bikaner still retains a medieval flavour and the route to Barmer will take you through typical Rajasthani villages. The pink city of Jaipur will mesmerize you with its landscape, forts and its people.
