Introduction

Rajasthan was once a land of royalty and today revels in its regal past. Scores of forts and palaces loom from the arid desert sands, along with cities as colourful as their brightly swathed locals, who fill the streets in dazzling fabric outfits.

The sandstone pink city of Jaipur is an area of pastel-hued buildings, palaces, forts and finely carved temples, while ‘blue' Jodhpur is dominated by the spectacular showcase Meherangarh Fort citadel.

In Udaipur experience one of the most romantic cities in India or witness tigers and leopards prowling through ancient forests in Ranthambore.

Where to go in Rajasthan

Ranthambore

Rajasthan's Ranthambore National Park is home to one of the finest and most popular tiger reserves in India.

Udaipur

Udaipur is perhaps one of the most romantic cities in India. Founded on the shores of Lake Pichola, its mix of white marble palaces, historic temples, placid blue lakes, attractive gardens and lily ponds and fertile green hills are a world away from the surrounding desert.

Jodhpur

The ‘blue city' of Jodhpur is entirely dominated by Rajasthan's showcase citadel, the spectacular Meherangarh Fort. A 10-km high stonewall protecting the old city, with 101 bastions and seven gates leads to a maze of narrow streets and lively markets.

Jaipur

The 'pink city' is the capital of Rajasthan and is a land of kings and princes. Filled with pastel-hued buildings, palaces, forts and finely carved temples, it's a symbol of India's glorious past, memorable traditions and exquisite culture.
