Rajasthan India


Of Kings and Retro beats
From Delhi drive South, beyond Gurgaon, and notice the vegetation getting sparser, trees dwarfing and their ‘green’ fading to something that is best termed ‘dull’ and then suddenly a ‘flash of colors’ almost blindfolds you and you know you have reached Rajasthan!

Almost the size of France, Rajasthan, is an arid desertland lorded by the Thar (desert), veined with numerous lakes and the Aravalli range running across to cradle the lands only hill station Mount Abu. Over the years, Rajasthan the post-independance name for Rajputana or the ‘land of princes’ has more than made-up for what Nature overlooked, by carving an irrefutable niche as a tourist favorite joint in India. So much so that some actually believe: Visit Rajasthan and you have seen everything that is India.

The Best of Rajasthan
A truly palatial State, Rajasthan is best known for its imposing Forts and palaces a classic showcase of Indian heritage. ‘Pink City’ Jaipur (capital) and ‘Blue City’ Jodhpur are famed best for their well-preserved Forts and palaces. Impregnable havelis (mansions), still peopled, adorn the Shekhawati and Jaisalmer region. Pilgrims trek up Mount Abu for the famous Dilwara Temples (Jain), while the Dargah Sharif at Ajmer draws believers from across the globe. Flanking Ajmer is the tiny town of Pushkar that hosts the Asia’s largest camel fair (the Pushkar Mela). Nature enthusiasts head straight for tiger tracking at the two national tiger reserves, Ranthambore and Sariska, while ornithologists have Keoladeo National Park near Bharatpur with Asia’s largest concoction of avifauna, and famed for the Siberian Cranes. Our Destination Guide has a city-wise Culinary and Shopping gossip. Tie your belts for a virtual tour of what we believed will interest you most in Regal Rajasthan.
