PLACES TO VISIT IN RAJASTHAN
The most obvious reaction of tourists when they see
something exquisitely beautiful is to stop in their tracks and stare. They
say that if you come across Mona Lisa for the first time in the Louvre in
Paris, you will literally freeze. It is just that beautiful objects and
colourful people catch our attention for sometime and keep us completely
engrossed. But what if you are bestowed with newer enchantments everytime
you come across some elements of inspiration? Surely you will move ahead
and ahead... But remember, whatever your speed of beholding may be, the
edge of amazement will never come in sight in Rajasthan. The places to visit and famous attractions of Rajasthan are unending.
Welcome to the Land of Rajas and Maharajas, the colourful repertoire of India's culture and tradition. It is a land where the morning sun kisses the ramparts of the mighty forts and the full moon sheds its romance on the exquisite carvings of palaces. The tiger lords it over the shifting sands of Rajasthan, realm of the rambling camel. Padharo Hukum..to the land where colours burst through the desert haze and tempers cool with the setting sun.
Take a city tour of Rajasthan to see the major places that you should visit in Rajasthan. The opulent cities of Rajasthan were once the seats of power of the Rajputs, now they are open pages of history. Travel to any 'garh' (a place with a fort) and you will find tales of valour floating silently in the air. Dawn your holiday itinerary in Rajasthan from Sawai Jai Singh's capital, Jaipur, the rosafarbene city (with a tint of Pink), of this multi-hued state. Drenched in the impeccable blend of colourful sandstones which add a unique medley in colour, the bustling cities of Rajasthan surely allures its guests with irrefutable charms as blue pottery in Jaipur, golden hue of Jaisalmer Fort, miniature paintings of Kota, serene hills of Mount Abu, sun-kissed sands of Thar and as the cliche goes, elephant ride, last but not the least, the mouth-watering and much favoured 'daal-baati-churma'.
Take a tour of Rajasthan to see everything that is big in Rajasthan. Be it the stone embodied forts, marble incarnated palaces or even the hearts of people who still dwell in these colossal structures. Walk along the sprawling ramparts and feel the grandeur coalesced with these silent parapets of history - tales of blood and blade coloured with saffron and ash. It is only here that mornings were marked by plots and counterplots, afternoons engaged in fierce battles for power, and the nights, moistened in fairytales of love and devotion. Spend some days of your holiday vacation wandering on the ramparts of these magnificent mansions, touch the pristine stones that lay the base of chivalry of this Rajput state. Forts and Palaces of Rajasthan will be the most famous places that will attract you.
Rajasthan tourism is apparantly, not only about chivalry and luxury. There are still some pads, untouched by the hands of modernity, that harness nature to survive. But still, these virgin patches of Rajasthan are embellished with three things that give them an edge over others and makes them a favourite place to spend a holiday; the rustic charm that they portray, the legends that can be heard and of course a laid back way of life. Spend a few days amidst the village-life of this barren state, to know about the major attractions of these rural destinations. And what you will get for free beside awe-inspiring works of art is a memory that you can cherish for the rest of life.
Listen to the pristine calls of the sun-kissed sands of Thar. Tune yourself with the melody of the wilds. Refresh yourself with a fresh rush of adrenaline. If life is an adventure in Rajasthan, it better be huge. Turn the wheels of your car towards the undulating sand dunes of Jaisalmer. See the golden hue of the Sonar Kila from a height in a hot-air balloon. Ride a camel and explore the virgin patches of historic sands at Bikaner, one of the famous palces to visit in Rajasthan. Capture a tiger in your cam, fighting for its own survival at Ranthambhore. See the Siberian Cranes grazing grass, with their head held high. And why not? They have just completed a cross-country race to reach Bharatpur. The wilds of Rajasthan are deep and dark, but it is still a mystery that how it provides such a colourful experience. See, if you can find it!
India is all about sect, devotion and religion. Rajasthan is no exception. Caressing a brotherhood of secularity, the Land of Maharajas whole-heartedly encourages myriad religious creeds that maintain a system of synergy among themselves. And so, as a fruit of such endeavour, we get many pilgrimage destinations all over the state that are a must visit : the only Brahma temple in the world nestling on the banks of Pushkar, the Mecca of south-east Asia at Ajmer and the world renowned Dilwara Jain Temples perching high on Mount Abu.
You might never get a chance again to experience luxury at its extremes. Walk over to Rajasthan on a red carpet. The most famous attractions in Rajasthan is this royal train.Reserve a suite in the Palace on Wheels, one of the 10 most luxurious trains in the world for a exclusive Rajasthan tour. 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. And what does that countryside has to offer? A memorable camel ride on the sun-kissed dunes of the Thar. A rendezvous with an animal which is ubiquitous in Rajasthan, but exclusive to this desert city. What about a fine dinner in a rustic ambiance especially created for you? Surely you are going to enjoy Choki Dani! Walk along the mud streets, amidst the bustling ambiance of the rural arena. Ride a pony, colour your palms with henna, get a glass of chilled lassi (buttermilk) and sit on the traditional hand made jute beds to enjoy the grand dance performances (kalbeliya) by the snake charming communities. Imagine a journey through the rugged terrain of Jaipur straight to Amber Fort, and that too on an elephant. Oh! What an experience it would be!
