Tourism in Rajasthan

Rajasthan, an ancient land of princes, palaces and preening peacocks, is renowned for its great monuments, exquisite art and culture, that date back to several centuries. There is a haunting air of romance, about the state, which is palpable in its every nook and corner. The shimmering, mysterious Thar desert simply mesmerises the onlooker. One visit is not enough to capture the real essence of this magical land. You will, we assure you, keep coming back for more.

No other region in the country, reconciles the many paradoxes of India in itself, as does Rajasthan. Unexpected forest glens, lakes and temples, appear like mirages in the desert. On the crags are seen rugged forts, testimony to a turbulent history. Innumerable temples, dating back to the 7th century, still survive amidst scattered ruins, medieval cities exist around turreted marble palaces and spacious gardens.

The state represents an unusual diversity in all its forms - people, culture, customs, costumes, cuisine, dialects and music. Rajasthanis are a handsome people, known for their brilliant costumes. They express themselves in colour and sound, not easily seen or heard anywhere else, in the country. Rajasthan overwhelms with colour found in bustling bazaars; in the exotic attire of its people; and in the winding streets, where elephants and camels vie with buses and cars. Rajasthan is a destination that defies definition.
