Rajasthan: The land of Royal Grandeur & Colorful People
Literally translated to English, the word Rajasthan mean Raja - 'King' & Sthan - 'Land or Area' and the desert state of Rajasthan stands true to its name with its many royal estates, forts, palaces and centuries old legends of kings and queens. Besides the royal folklore and grandeur, a tour in Rajasthan is also an interesting mix of its delicious cuisine, colorful people, varied landscapes and beautiful wildlife.
So much to see…..Take your pick
Although a partially desert and partially semi-arid region, the state of Rajasthan has been blessed with more tourist destinations in India than any other.
A tour of Rajasthan can take you to some world famous cities like the Pink City of Jaipur with its beautiful City Palace of the erstwhile royal family, Udaipur with itsLake Palace floating on the Lake Pichola, the daunting Mehrangarh Fort looking over the Blue city of Jodhpur or Ranthambore with the tiger haven of Sawai Madhopur Wildlife Sanctuary and some off-beat hidden gems such as Bundi and its ancient Haveli's-traditionally decorated homes, Kesroli with its 700 year old Fort Kesroli or the highest peak of Rajasthan-Mt Abu, that has also served as the hill station of the Mewar Royals.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, as a trip/tour in Rajasthan can easily last for 2 to 3 weeks with new cities and experiences every few days. The best way to enjoy Rajasthan is to have a mix of the popular and off-best destinations spread over suitable no of days and book your stay at beautiful heritage hotels & properties in these destinations.
