CITIES OF RAJASTHAN
Amer Fort , Jaipur
If you really want to see India in Eastman colour, take a tour of
Rajasthan. Be it the breathtaking Thar Desert in myriad hues of yellow or
the eye-soothing wet grasslands portraying variant shades of green -
Rajasthan has all the colours of a rainbow. There were so many kings in
this state that they had to call it the 'Land of Kings'. All the regals
(and all their horses and all their men) found this land of golden desert,
an amiable pad to reign. Which is why, sometimes, when the wind sings, and
the sands shift, and the voice of a passing minstrel finds an echo in the
halls of a deserted palace, it is easy to imagine oneself transported into
an age long ago when every fairy tales might have been true.
The real charm, of course, lies in exploring the famous cities and towns sprawled all over the barren landscape of Rajasthan. So rich is the history, that even the trivial roadside villages have their own tales of valour and sacrifice for the telling. Enjoy some sightseeing in the famous destinations of Rajasthan. The first city you will come across, is obviously, Jaipur, known for its pink painted houses and blue pottery. Travel to Jaisalmer, which will greet you with its splendid Golden Fortress and magnificent golden hues that creep on the walls of the memory. Go to Ranthambhore and you can find tigers ready to be captured in your cams. Enjoy a memorable boat cruise on the emerald waters of Lake Pichola in Udaipur. Pushkar, the elusive pad for the grand Pushkar Fair, has much more to offer than just a pilgrimage. And that is not the end... enjoy this quick reference to the principal settlements and plan accordingly. Enjoy city tours of Rajasthan to see the historical cities of Rajasthan.
City Palace Udaipur on Lake Pichola
Sightseeing city tours of Rajasthan will take you to the most famous cities in the desert state. You will always remember your first pink city experience
with modernism reflected in urban spaces, the shopping extravaganza and
your first walk through a Rajput palace. And thus, you will never forget
Jaipur. But nevertheless, it always has something more to offer. Guess
what? It is the much-known Hawa Mahal. Travel to Jripur city, to see an intrinsic playground of red and
pink sandstone, this pyramid-shaped structure, which discriminates vision
with air, with its 953 tiny lattice worked pink windows, frames up
elaborately modeled and carved balconies and arched roofs, that invariably
resembles the crown of Lord Krishna. And then, the exquisite blur
potteries and precious stones Jaipur is famous for. And then the
mouth-watering 'daal-baati-churma' speciality, that creeps on the waxy
walls of the memory eternally and pokes tourists to come back again.
Rajasthan cities travel guide brings to you the best holiday idea. If you are wondering where to spend a honeymoon vacation, then Udaipur, the most romantic place in India, might be a right choice. Udaipur is an enchanting city full of surprises, with lakes in the midst of sandy terrain and green forested hills. The city is replete with palaces straight out of fairy tales and rugged fortresses that recount the history. Take a boat cruise on the emerald waters of Lake Pichola and you can feel the difference. Upmarket hotels, spectacular palaces and havelis are there to welcome the endless stream of international and domestic tourists. Go green at Mount Abu, the only hill station in this desert city. Visit the magnificently famous Dilwara Temples where architecture is marked by carvings that are not just heart-touchingly beautiful in form but are often presented in a highly poetic context. A famous Jain pilgrimage destination, the Dilwara Temples at Mount Abu are the best examples human hands can create. The famous destinations in Rajasthan have more to offer.
Believe it or not, but the pristine sands of the Thar
surely creates a magic that allures every visitor to crave for more. And
amidst those golden sands, stands the three Rajput kingdoms - Jaisalmer,
Jodhpur and Bikaner - like a sentinal of time. Travel to these destinations that were founded on the crossroads
of lucrative trade routes. The remote settlement of Jaisalmer came to be
celebrated for the valour of its rulers, and for the aesthetic sense
represented by their palaces and havelis. But the cardinal attraction
remains the colossal Golden Fort which seems to rise out of the desert
haze, its yellow sandstone walls and bastions taking on a golden hue in
the afternoon sun.

Standing guard above the city is the majestic Mehrangarh Fort, overlooking the rugged and rocky terrain. Enjoy a camel safari on the virgin sands of Jodhpur.
