Rajasthan Tour Packages

Rajasthan tour is travel on the land of kings and culture. The state was the cradle of the Rajput, warriors organized into clans, who controlled the region for more than a millennium. Rajasthan, the Land of Kings, is the last bastion of the maharajas who now lord over magnificent palaces turned heritage hotels. A caravan of camels wends its way through the dunes. The strains of a folk song fill the emptiness of the desert. A royal train chugs through the cool desert night. These are the images thrown up by the dramatic desert of Rajasthan. This is a rugged land, home to a race of fiery warriors-the Rajput. The breathtaking Thar Desert occupies western Rajasthan and is home to great medieval cities. The painted havelis of Shekhawati Rajasthan are in the north. The southern part of Rajasthan is hilly and green and Udaipur with its lakes and places is set here. Rajasthan tour packages ensure that a tourist visits the villages, interacts with the local population and discovers the original culture and traditions.

Rajasthan's capital, Jaipur is one point of a must-do tourist circuit, the so-called Golden Triangle (the other being Delhi and Agra). Indians like to call it the Pink City, after the pretty wash on its buildings. Sawai Jai Singh II built Jaipur when he shifted his capital here from Amber in 1727 AD. Wander through the 18th century bazaars of the walled city, take in the City Place and Jantar Mantar (an astronomical observatory), then explore the Hawa Mahal (Palace of the winds), Rajasthan's most dramatic edifice. The splendorous sights of Shekhawati region can be spotted in the towns like Mandawa, Fatehpur, Nawalgarh, Churu, Jhunjhunu, Sikar etc. The towns of the Shekhawati region contain some of the most elaborate havelis, step wells and temples in the state. The Rajput nobles who ruled over their fiefdoms here became great patrons of art and financed elaborate frescoes on their havelis. There are several desert cities in Rajasthan. Called the Sun City, Jodhpur is a rugged, no-nonsense town. The Mehrangarh Fort looms over the Old City and its striking blue-washed homes. A major attraction is the Umaid Bhawan Palace, now a heritage hotel. Jaisalmer, the Golden City, is noted for its gigantic fort. Ajmer is famed for its Dargah Sharif, the tomb of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti. Nearby, Pushkar has long been a backpacker hangout. A pilgrim town with a sacred lake surrounded by 400 temples, Pushkar is one of India's holiest towns. Udaipur is a pleasant surprise in arid Rajasthan. This is Rajasthan at its great and the City of Lakes and Palaces lies within a circle of hills. The massive City Palace overlooks Lake Pichola and boasts a fine museum.

There's even a hill-station in Rajasthan - Mount Abu. The Dilwara Jain Temples here are known for their sculptural details and intricate carvings.

These are the palaces, castles and havelis of the royal families. For instance, the pride of Jodhpur, the Umaid Bhawan Palace is one of the largest and grandest private residences in the world. Henry Vaughan Lanchester designed a fine example of the Indo-Colonial and art Deco style of the 1930s, the sandstone palace. Construction of the sprawling palace, which finished in the 1940s, was part of a food-for-work programme initiated by Maharaja Umaid Singh to tide his subjects over a grim famine. Umaid Singh's grandson, Maharaja Gaj Singh still stays in a section of the Palace. The rest has been converted into part museum and part luxury hotel. The Lake Palace set in the middle of the Lake Pichola in Udaipur and is on the list of "Leading Hotels of the World"
