A Memorable Vacation at the Golden Deserts of Rajasthan

Rajasthan is the glorious land of kings and queens, forts and palaces, which attract tourists from far lands. Explore Rajasthan to unravel the golden past of Indian history, taste some of the best Indian cuisines and shop your heart out.

The Pink City of Jaipur
Jaipur, also known as the Pink City is the capital of Rajasthan. Your journey begins with a visit to the Amber Fort, riding on a decorated elephant to the hill top. Amber Fort is spectacular with its intricately designed gateways, lush green gardens and halls which exhibit beautiful mirror works.

The Palace of Winds is another amazing architecture of Jaipur with its 983 ‘Jharokhas.’ While the Jantar Mantar treasures the largest sun dial of the world, the City Palace is a store house of royal belongings, old coins and rich paintings. Jaipur is a city to shop. Fill your bags with designer leather shoes, unique boutique apparels and handicrafts, or relax at the evenings, enjoying puppet shows, folk song and dance programs.

The Lake City of Udaipur
With its numerous manmade and natural lakes, Udaipur is the oasis of Rajasthan. While the City Palace of the city is an epitome of beauty with white Chinese domes, exquisite hanging gardens and sparkling mirror work, the Jag Mandir is the best place to relax, located at the middle of the Lake Pichola. People visiting Udaipur also do not miss a boat cruise over the crystalline waters of Lake Pichola. Udaipur is also known for its ancient temples. The Kumbhalgarh Fort is the pride of Udaipur, while the museum of Bagore Ki Haveli treasures antiques which were used by the royals.

The Golden City of Jaisalmer
Jaisalmer was built as a walled city and is also one of the largest forts of the world. Jaisalmer Fort is popularly known as the Golden Fort as it shines like gold under sunlight.

The Bada Bagh, which is a cemetery of the royals, is a sunset point, while the chattris built as memorials exhibit unique architectural designs.

 The Patwon Ki Haveli portrays the lavish lifestyle of the merchants of Rajasthan. With its yellow sandstone structure, rich murals and intricately designed corridors, these massive structures are unique Rajput style of architecture. Tourists can enjoy camel rides here along with night camps at the Sam sand dunes.

The Sun City of Jodhpur
Located at the edge of the Thar Desert, Jodhpur exhibits the rustic life of Rajasthan. While women are found here carrying multiple pots of water on head, cladded in large ghagras and adorned with huge bangles, men are found roaming on camels; the melody of sarangi fills the evening air of the city.

The Mehrangarh Fort of Jodhpur exhibits the courage of the Rajput ladies. The walls of the fort still bear small handprints which are of the royal ladies who plunged themselves into the altar of their husbands when they were defeated.

The Jaswant Thada, often known as the Taj Mahal of Rajasthan, is a pristine white marble structure. With its multilevel gardens, portraits of Rathore monarchs and imposing craftsmanship, the memorial is a treat to the eyes.

The Hill Station of Mount Abu
The only hill station of the desert state, Mount Abu rejuvenates you. While the pleasant atmosphere and lush greenery is idle for picnics, the breathtaking beauty of the Dilwara temples takes you back in the glorious past of Jainism.

The Nakki Lake is also considered sacred and it is believed that it was dug by the gods with their nails in order to create shelter for themselves from the demons. There is also a sanctuary at Jodhpur, where pangolins, hyenas, jackals and porcupines can be found.

Last but not the least; Rajasthan is known for its delicious cuisines. Dal baati churma, gatti ki saag, lal maas and namkeens are some of the popular cuisines of the state.
