"Not just deserts and forts, much more to explore!"

Nov 1, 2016
There is so much to see, so much to explore, so much to discover and so much to assimilate here. I once read somewhere that if someone wants to see true India then they must come to Rajasthan. This is that one single place which encompasses of so much culture; ethos, tradition, and heritage that I sometimes wonder how could there be an awful lot of varieties in this one locale? Once a person comes here they will go back with a tranche of their heart lying here. And that's the reason people love to visit here again and again. Cities of Rajasthan which should be on your must visit lists are Jaipur, Udaipur, Ajmer, Pushkar, Jodhpur & Jaiselmer. For wildlife lovers Ranthambore national park is a heaven.

"The new peaceful place forever"

Mar 27, 2016
I visited many places, Rajasthan is famous for respectiveness. Since two months I went to Rajasthan with my friends and by my car. The journey took almost two days. We took rest at hotels and continued the ride with car. Firstly we visited the Thar Desert which is in Rajasthan, it consists of total sand and the place was totally hot. Even water also not available, have taken the water with us. It was helpful for me because water was not available in Thar desert. Then we visited the Raj Mahals and restaurantsd, the restaurants are really nice and the main thing I liked here is food which was superb. The Rajasthanies are really so peaceful and respective persons. They treat us in a respective manner. I am very tired with my car, I prefer travels for the next time. With the car my health was upset, I suggest travels or train to visit the Rajasthan instead of car.

"Nice place to visit"

Mar 10, 2016
Rajasthan is the famous place place for traditions. Since two months ago I went to Rajasthan via Sai Sri Krishna travels. All of my family members were already seen the Rajasthan since two years ago. I am the first to see. I saw all the places in Rajasthan. I saw the Thar desert which was awaesome. It is totally sand and very hot area. I take a rest in one home. They treated me as very respective manner. I like their traditions. Such as sarees wearing style, dressing styles, etc were really so good. I think Rajasthan people are the best people in India. No other places people can maintain their home and all things in such a good manner. My best visited places is the Rajasthan only. I visited delhi also. But Delhi is totally rusty and jumbled area. No peaceful are is Delhi only. But Rajasthan is the peaceful area. Especially Jaipur is no clean and neat. All people and places are very very attractive. Rajasthan kings olden palaces are looking so good. I ate the food at one hotel which was located in Jaipur. The food was so tasty and I ate the food in one hotel only.

"Majestic place"

Mar 3, 2016
Rajasthan has now become one of my favourite holiday destination. There is so much to see there. Palaces, Forts, Museums, Havelis, Lakes, Temples etc etc and the list is endless. The state has so much history to learn about. Beautiful architecture all around. Very god hospitality. Great food. Great road infrastructure enables ease in moving around. Everyone must visit this. I can't wait for my next visit to this beautiful state. Considering dry climate, one should choose to go there during cooler months like November to February.

"Rajasthan 15 day by AC Coach"

Feb 27, 2016
Visiting Rajasthan, India with Kesari Tours & Travels.

My wife & I did a 15 day Rajasthan Mewar & Marwad Coach Tour with Kesari Tours.

The organization by Kesari reminded us of tours of Europe with COSMOS. This Company has all the required clout and the Tour Conductors were knowledgable, polite & respectfully firm. Guides provided by the tour operators were knowledgeable, patient, humorous & eloquent in Hindi. Hotels were beautiful specially Udaivilas at Udaipur, Bhanwar Singh Palace at Pushkar, Sarovar Portico Jaipur (car parking outside hotel on kerbside) & Desert Tulip at Jaisalmer. The places covered included Mt. Abu, Udaipur, Chittorgarh, Ranthambor Natural Reserve (with a safari), Ajmer Sharif Dargah, Pushkar, Jaipur, Bikaner, the famous rat temple, Natdwar, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Pokaran & Jodhpur.

The rich history of Mewar and Maharana Pratap with his horse Chetak were depicted in all their pristine glory at Udaipur & Chittorgarh. The castles which often included several steps to be climbed were indeed fascinating. History revealed once again that wars are fought for religion, plunder or beauty. The abundance of temples and the possibility to conclude different forms of last rites for the 'departed' at Pushkar was a boon to the Hindu travellers. The visit to the famous Chisty Dargah at Ajmer to pay homage to the Sufi Saint was a chance of a life time.

The museums intrigued us all but the battle of Haldighati as related in the museum at Haldighati took the cake. This was followed by a delicious lunch served with Rajasthani cuisine, by far the best meal on the tour. Vegetarian & adorable. For that matter all the hotels where we dined served excellent food. The Chef at hotel Sarovar Portico in Jaipur needs special mention. Visiting Choki-re-dhani at Jaipur proved a damp squib. The much anticipated visit was disappointing as the fare in the meal and the village atmosphere created were nothing to write home about.

At Jaisalmer the camel ride on camel back or the camel cart was enjoyable but the optional trip by camel cart into the Thar Dessert is a disappointment & at the mercy of the camel cart drivers who promise much but deliver nothing extra. Jeep Dessert Safari is available. The lure of the markets can be experienced at Jodhpur. Advisable to cater an empty bag for purchases like 'Juties' (shoes), semi precious stones jewelry & Rajasthani traditional clothes. The shop at the lunch halt hotel in Pokaran offers a decent array of buyable items at 25-30% discount. The items here were more classy than those available in other places & cheaper because of the discount. Credit Card accepted. This place is revisited on the return leg to Jodhpur from Jaisalmer.

The light & sound show at Udaipur City Palace repeats the history already described and is more of an audio presentation. The Lake Palace & Jag Mandir get automatically excluded at Udaipur because of paucity of time and heavy INR as cover charges. The war museum at Jaisalmer and its Indian Army shop was a big draw. A must visit area.

Wifi at Udaivilas & Bhanwar Singh Palace hotels was tricky & mostly unavailable. February weather was excellent in Rajasthan and a light sweater was enough. Kesari had included tips, guide remuneration & all entry tickets in the tour price so there was no extra expense on these counts. Some of the places had a Rs 30-50 camera charge and some places photography was not permitted. The ride on the 'hand pushed cart' up the slope to the sunset point at Mt Abu was an experience. Continuous hygienically packed snacks provided by Kesari kept us occupied through out the tour. The facility breaks were evenly spaced. Most days we had the 6, 7, 8 AM regime of wake-up call, breakfast and the day's departure respectively. Though it was a busy 15 days we as Senior Citizens could cope this tour with ease. We would like to do more of such tours in the Kesari Itinerary. We found co-travellers who had done 6-9 tours with Kesari already.

About Rajasthan

Rajasthan is India's largest state, located on its north-western border with Pakistan. It is surrounded by the states of Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Punjab. Rajasthan is bisected by the Aravalli hills, dividing it into two distinct landscapes. On the west is Rajasthan's unique feature, the Thar Desert an area of sand, scrub and thorn. The other is the region to the east of the Aravallis, which is more rain fed and hospitable.

 

The culture of Rajasthan is defined by the Rajputana kingdoms that ruled it for centuries; the word Rajput meaning sons of royalty. The Thar Desert region saw the Desert Kingdoms of Marwar (modern Jodhpur), Jaisalmer, and Bikaner. The east saw the kingdoms of Mewar (modern Chittor and Udaipur), Amber (modern Amber and Jaipur), and Hadoti (modern Bundi, Kota and Jhalawar) among many others. As a result, Rajasthan has a larger concentration of forts, palaces, and royal riches than any other place in India. This is the reason why tourism is a primary pillar of the economy; apart from agriculture and cattle rearing. Several palaces or abandoned fortresses have been converted to Heritage Hotels to attract visitors and provide an income for the erstwhile princes.

 

The capital Jaipur, with its many imposing buildings made of rosy sandstone, is called Pink City. The City Palace complex and Hawa Mahal are examples of Rajasthani-Mughal architecture. The old parts of town offer shopping such as jewellery, hand-dyed clothes, precious stones and craftwork. Jaipur has an international airport.

 

Udaipur has many lakes, lakeside palaces, and the largest palace complex (City Palace) in Rajasthan. Jaisalmer fort is made of yellow sandstone such that it's called the Golden Fort. Jaisalmer also gives access to pristine sand dunes of Sam and Khuri, with camel safaris and nomadic music. The Amber Fort (near Jaipur, 16thcentury); the Chittor Fort; Junagarh Fort (at Bikaner); Mehrangarh Fort, (at Jodhpur, 15thcentury) are among the main fortress attractions.

 

The Shekhawati region in the north east offers painted havelis belonging to old business families. Ranthambore and Sariska National Parks are for tiger reserves while Keoladeo Ghana National Park (or Bharatpur) is a bird-rich wetland, where over 375 species of migratory birds visit each year. Mt Abu is the only hill station in Rajasthan.
