Rajasthan - The Land of Kingly Wonders

If you mix red and yellow, it turns into orange; if you mix blue and yellow, it turns into green. However, if you mix all the colours in a palatte, with a tint of every emotion, it turns into the colourful state of Rajasthan. Take a Rajastahn India yatra to see the breathtaking Thar Desert that stretches on the western side of this royal state, its golden sands whiffing every bit of nostalgia along with itself. The green forests of the Deccan embrace the southern territories, hiding every melody of wrath deep into its darkness. Even the sprawling cities have painted themselves in vibrant colour, putting life in mere sandstone structures - pink, blue, golden - every city has its own way of expressing high spirits. No doubt, when you dream of something, the whole world - and perhaps the nature too - conspires to fulfill that dream.

Travel to Rajasthan - where the mystique of the desert beckons - isolated in time-wrap, yet pulsating with golden legacies of romance and valour. Turbaned men with proud moustaches and veiled beauties in gaily coloured costumes and heavy jewellery, overwhelm with their cheerfulness. Fairs and festivals only add colour to the bleak life of the barren desert and turn the land into a creative fertile basin. Visit the capital of the colourful state - the passionate pink after the pretty wash on its buildings by Sawai Jai Singh - Jaipur, a diamond in the must-do tourist circuit of northern India. If you have traveller's luck, you might see a polo match on your Jaipur trip.Welcome to the pleasant surprise amid brown desertscape, the alluring Lake City of Rajasthan. Climb to the top of the state, the only hill station of Rajasthan, Mount Abu. Visit the world famous Dilwara Jain Temples, known for their sculptural detail and intricate carvings. The Thar Desert Safari in Rajasthan has become a popular extravaganza among the tourists. Plan your holiday vacations in Rajasthan and explore the unvoiced pleasures associated with these safaris, a thrilling journey on the sands of time.

Come And Explore Rajasthan In Its True Colours

Rajasthan Forts And Palaces : A Walk To The Habitats of Maharajas

Jaisalmer Fort
Jaisalmer Fort, Rajasthan

Tarvel to Rajasthan to see the attractions that for centuries, if not millennia, the Rajput fortresses, the defensive castles and the composite havelis - were the abode of chivalry where hospitality was a way of life. The forts are no doubt the best manuscripts that spell the saga of the audacious Rajput clans. They still echo the splendour of the mighty maharajas who left their imprints of valour, from these vital seats of power, on the sands of time. As you will wander around the colossal ramparts of these monuments, you will catch a bizarre aroma of enthrallment blended impeccably in the air. The chivalry and gallantry of the warrior fraternity is reflected in the architecture of the feudal homes. Everytime you gaze upward after scaling the heights of the barren grasslands (because the forts were usually built atop a hill), you will be greeted with a colossal entrance; intricately carved gateways who have invited kings, along with their men and horses.

If the forts of Rajasthan are a placard of Rajput bravery, the ambrosial palaces are fine specimens of their interest in art. They not only illustrate great works of craftsmanship, but also align majestic color combinations with the surrounding landscape - white mable structures amidst emerald waters, lush green surroundings, red earth and under the cobalt blue sky. Moreover since these serene palaces were a reason for leisure, they are usually leagued with overwhelming entertainment packages! Enjoy a boat cruise on the pristine waters of Lake Pichola in Udaipur or go for a memorable elephant safari on the rugged route to Amber Fort in Jaipur. With the twist and turns of history, many of these grand palaces - individually created over centuries, bedecked with the best paintings and furniture and endorsing different chapters of architectural history - have been remodeled as heritage hotels to meet the modern needs of today's international traveller. In short, whatever you do or where ever you stay, you will find a way to listen to your heart.

A Great Escape To The Wilds of Rajasthan

Tiger at Ranthambore National Park
Tiger at Ranthambore National Park

While on Rajasthan tourism there are only two things that make the jungles of Rajasthan a must see for every traveller to India; amazing diversity of its countryside and the enticing variety of flora and fauna that dwell in those corners. In spite of a hostile terrain, Rajasthan is a favoured home to many world famous animal species. Plan a holiday vacation in Rajasthan's deep wildlife reserves and you can see rare and many about-to-be-extinct species walk around the relics of the majestic forts and hunting lodges of bygone years. Watch them quarrel and make love, while meandering in a hired safari within the fringes of Rajasthan wildlife reserves. Enjoy the charm of watching birds - dance, sing, quarrel and feed their babies - at Bharatpur, a sight you will love to behold. Capture the jungle king, the great Indian tiger, in your handycam, while it engages itself in drinking water or even when it chases to catch a prey, all at Ranthambhore. Surely you cannot miss such a chance to chat with the nature, and you don't have to. Or perhaps, the vicious animals in their true colours will never you allow to do so.

Discover A New World In Rajasthan Deserts

Take a Rajasthan tour to enjoy the experience of a lifetime at the pristine sand dunes of Thar desert of Rajasthan. Sprawled over a vast area of desolete landscape and offering a hostile domain, the sun-kissed sands surely attracts hundreds of tourists from round the globe for a perfect holiday vacation brimmed with high adrenaline rush. You just can't leave Rajasthan without riding a camel into the sunset. Or better still, set off on an overnight camel safari scross the dunes, and dine under the stretched-out canopy of stars. For miles altogether, there is nothing but sand, but from this voidness one can expect the unexpected, the mirage, a visual extravaganza. Don't forget to aquaint yourself with the way of walking on sands, how the foot sinks into the sand, leaving ephemeral impressions and the way sand seeps into your shoes. Messing with the sands in India is a fun, believe it. For a real adrenaline rush, chase the whiffing sands on a jeep. Sand bashing is a memorable episode as the vehicle snakes amidst the cuts and curls of the sand dunes, generating restless butterflies in stomach at every minute. Ah! till now you have just dreamt about it, now come over to Rajasthan to experience it.

The Art And Craft of A Colourful Culture

On your Rajasthan tourism, you will find that it is nevertheless incredible to create magic with fingers in a hostile terrain as of Rajasthan. Sandstorms lashing the towns in summer, trees being bent by fierce winds and under their ephemeral shades the expert craftsmen play with nature's paraphernalia, remodeling imagination into reality. The depth, range and inspirational intricacy of this heritage stems from its socio-economic ethos, with whole village pursuing certain crafts, which are intrinsic to their survival or daily needs. Visit Jodhpur to encounter the most intricate and interesting result of garment designing, the tie-and-dye style of coloring. Buy yourself a bright colored odhni (headscarf) featuring a lotus motif against a white or pink background. Ah! it looks good on you. Shift the gears of your car to reach Sanganer, near Jaipur, famous for its block printed fabric. Here you can witness true hand-craftsmanship; garments are printed with wooden blocks on which incisions form the elemental design, live in front of your eyes! And not only fabric. Ask for anything and the village savvies will always give you the best. So travel to Rajasthan, make it your holiday destination and get more than just a memorable vacation in the Land of Rajputs

Rajasthan Villagers
Rajasthan Villagers

You might have read stories about barrenness and inadequacy or you might have seen arid landscape dotted with heaps of hamlets, rugged tree thickets, herds of cattle and smoke from kilns floating in the air, only on Discovery Channel. Here is a chance to explore the impoverished side of life. Take a tour of Rajasthan and experience the true essence of India. It is a land where the smoke still curls out from the kitchen windows, dusks are illuminated by twinkling lights of kerosene lamps and villagers still sing of rain to children because it is a rare visitor. Travel on a camel's back amidst the wind-swept, sand farms, see the men with rings in their ears and their feet in gaily embroidered shoes, women in bright 'ghagras' and colourful 'cholis' and quench your thirst with red and sweet watermelons. Wow! Indeed an experience to linger throughout your life.

Luxury on Wheels

Travel to Rajasthan,, which is the ultimate signature of style. Here obviously you won't find men in Armani suits and Gucci shoes, neither they adorn themselves with Rolex watches. But in colourful turbans, in red Rajput-style 'sherwanis' (overcoats) always present by your side to take care of everything - dining, lodging, sightseeing as well as organized shopping - so that you can enjoy the luxury in a grand maharajah style. Luxury? Yes, indeed. The Palace on Wheels is a perfect synonym of opulence. Praised to be one among the 10 most luxurious trains in the world, the Palace on Wheels indeed provides a lifetime experience when it cruises amidst the historical parapets of Jaipur, Chittaurgarh, Udaipur, Ranthambhore, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Bharatpur and Agra. Relax on the ponderous divans, refresh yourself over a cup of hot herbal tea together with the euphony of a soothing piped music, push the gauzy curtains and see the rustic countryside whizzing past outside the window. For a memorable red carpet treatment, enjoy a memorable journey with the Palace on Wheels through the heart of Rajasthan.

A Holiday Amidst The Colourful Sands

Rajasthan Tourism in India offers with so much to see and do, it is hardly possible for a travelling enthusiast to retain his identity in the corners of his house. So chalk out an itinerary through the heart of the Land of Maharajas and add colours to your placid life.
