Rajasthan is mostly known for the large variety of forts and palaces built by the royalty. However this state has to offer a variety of things other than forts and palaces. If you are interested in a visit, you can select our Rajasthan tourism plans which introduce you to Rajasthani art, music and also takes you to some of its well known cities.
Here are just some of the things we love about Rajasthan:
From the blue city of Jodhpur to the pink city of Jaipur, Rajasthan is home to many colourful villages. The monuments and forts here are simply amazing to look at, and the history of the Rajputs is the stuff of legends. Walk around the cities, and learn about their unique history and culture. We’d definitely suggest a trip to Bikaner, Chittorgarh, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Udaipur.
Known for being a shopper’s paradise, craftsmen from Rajasthan still create fabulous art using traditional skills that have been perfected over several years. If you’d like some souvenirs from your trip here, we’d recommend the jewellery from Jaipur, leather work from Ajmer, snacks from Bikaner, and mirror work from Jaisalmer. You can also visit Rajasthali, the state run emporium, which has artefacts and crafts of high quality at affordable prices. Rajasthan is a treasure for Indian artefacts which attracts tourists from all over the world.
Rajasthan is one state where the people really know how to celebrate life. This has led to many important festivals being celebrated in Rajasthan every year. If you’re a complete bookwork, then why not visit the Jaipur Literature Festival in January, or enjoy the last of winter at the Desert Festival in Jaisalmer in February. Some other fun festivals include the Shilpgram Festival in Udaipur in December, and the Elephant Festival in Jaipur in March.
The Jhalana Safari Park
Just on the outskirts of Jaipur, the Jhalana Safari Park is accessible, and easy to visit, as you can drive around in your own car. Famous for their leopard sightings, wildlife enthusiasts can enjoy the peacocks, nilgai, deer, mongoose and birds that live in the park.
As the only hill station in the desert state of Rajasthan, we think Mount Abu is one place that definitely must be visited! Located in the Aravali mountain range, this hill station has many temples that are frequently visited by people from across the country. It’s famous for its green surroundings and picnic spots, providing some respite from the scorching heat of the rest of the state.
Rajasthan is one of the most regal states in India. It’s the state of forts, deserts and wildlife. If you’re ready to discover some incredible Rajput history, then you can book one of our Rajasthan tour packages.
