The colours of royalty are still alive here.
Packed with forts, food, palaces and shopping, Rajasthan is one of the few states in India that has managed to retain its unique identity and soul, while at the same time it has evolved quickly to keep up with its modern contemporaries. Add to that, the exotic wildlife sanctuaries and colorful festivals, make this state one of the most vibrant states that you will ever encounter in your life. It’s like they say, once you've slept in a palace, entered a medieval fort or swayed on a camel, you will want to keep coming back for more.
It goes without saying that it is the forts and palaces that instantly grab your attention in this state. Massive forts emerge from mountain tops, and till today stand as a testimony to the bygone era, their battle-scarred ramparts still defying enemies that are long dead. From Jaisalmer’s fairy tale desert outpost to the honey hued fort palace of Amber and imposing Mehrangarh fort in Jodhpur, Rajasthan is truly deserving of the title, Land of Kings.
