"Wonderful place"

1 month ago
Rajsthan is "Land of Kings. Also is India's largest state by area. Most attraction of Rajsthan is Ajmer where Khwaja e khwajga, Sultan e Hind, Khwaja Moinuddin Hasan Chishty, Summat Ajmeri are. A 's Mazar Shareef is there. . Besides Ajmer, Jaipur, Udaipur, Jesalmer, Jodhpur and so many places are there to Visit. Modern Rajasthan includes most of Rajputana, which comprises the erstwhile nineteen princely states, two chiefships, and the British district of Ajmer-Merwara. Marwar (Jodhpur), Bikaner, Mewar (Chittorgarh), Alwar and Dhundhar (Jaipur) were some of the main Rajput princely states. Bharatpur and Dholpur were Jat princely states whereas Tonk was a princely state under a Muslim Nawab. Wonderful pace really

"Rajasthan Delight"

3 months ago
We landed at Jaipur (Pink City) and drove straight to the Hotel (Crimson Park) - a good hotel. We visited Chokhi Dani in the evening to witness the rural lifestyle connecting Rajasthani tribes -their culture, tradition. This is a must visit if you visit Rajasthan. Next day morning, we went on sightseeing the main tourist attractions like Amer Fort, City Palace, Jantar Mantar and Hawa Mahala. The architecture is splendid and worth witnessing . Next Day as we travelled to Bikaner, we were amazed to see the Aravali plains amidst the rugged desert city of Bikaner and enroute visited Government's (Asia's No. 1) camel breeding farm. Later checked in at Raj Vilas - a good hotel. Next day had sight seeing Tours of Junagadh Fort (a magnificent structure made of marble and red sandstone) which also houses Anup Mahal, Chandra Mahal, fool Mahal, and Darbar Niwas . Next Day we travelled to Jaisalmer and checked in at Hotel Desert Palace - this hotel too a good hotel by any standard. We visited Jaisalmer Fort, Patwon Haveli, Gadisar Lake and post lunch drove to witness the prime attraction of Jaisalmer - sam sand dunes - desert safari and camel safari - these were awesome . Next day, we travelled to the second largest city of Rajasthan - Jodhpur - and checked in at Zone by the Park Hotel - another good hotel. We then went for sight seeing local forts, temples, palaces amidst the stark landscape of Thar Desert we were ready to visit our final destination - Udaipur - checked in at Amargarh Hotel - a new hotel on the Ahmedabad highway. We went for sight seeing tour of City Palace, Pichola Lake, Fatehsagar Lake and Sahelion ki Bari . . Although Rajasthan is considered to be a tourists' paradise, what surprises me why the State and Central Governments are ignoring the basic necessities - cleanliness and maintenance of monuments - it is time to pull up your socks - if you want continued tourists visits this part of the most sought after destination.
Don't visit Rajasthan or infact any tourist place through any agent. In today's technological life it's very easier to check-in to tourist places and find cheap hotels.

"Rajasthan, one of the most popular tourist destination."

Oct 21, 2017
After witnessing Durga puja and immersion of Durga idols on river Ganga in Kolkata, we decided to visit Rajasthan.
We landed in Jaipur on the night of 8th October and came back to Mumbai on 15th October from Udaipur. On these 7 days we touched Jaipur, Ajmer, Puskar, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Udaipur. To visit all these places in a short time was possible as we took a hired cab for 7 days from Jaipur. It was a nice and memorable journey. Particularly we were thrilled to have a camel ride on Thar desert in Jaisalmer and night stay in the tent. Equally we were thrilled in visiting the Ajmer sharif dargah although it belongs to other religion. A person from dargah took us to the mosque and explained in detail. Without his help we could not have been able to enter the narrow lanes and by lanes. Overall it was an excellent and pleasant experience.

"A perfect holiday destination if looking for real history"

As I visited in winters the weather was really cool .. Without failure carry thermal wears ... It is not kind a place for short trips .. Give as many days as possible to a state like Rajasthan if you want to explore every tiny corner of the place as its worth visiting.
I landed Jaipur than Jaisalmer than Jodhpur than ajmer/pushkar and than return to Jaipur, I recommend you cove all this city by road that make you see real rajsthan,

"Rajasthan Road trip"

We had not planned in advance. We started our help with Google map and also took advice from the local people. Sometimes the journey was awesome, but sometimes we had struck in extremely narrow roads, hard to handle the situations(and the traffic that we had created). But every time, we had a new experience, adjustments, India's diversity and all these have opened up a new vision of the struggles that the people had. We started thinking out of our world. Sometimes awestruck but many times, felt bitter by the truth of life.

"Road tripping"

Road trip with friends to a state of rich culture - mix bag of millennia fun as well as connection to history. I enjoyed the forts of Jaipur, the display of local culture at chauki dhaani, the pyaaz kachauri of Kota and the museum of vintage cars in Udaipur. This combined with experience of ad-hoc planning by early 20 year olds, capitalisation of available resources and knowing the history the history behind the forts and sculptures.

"Rajasthan gives you new surprise everyday"

Oct 4, 2017
Rajasthan is known as home of rajputs and also called rajputana state.
They called themselves suryavanshi and chadarvashi.
It is said that there is more history in Rajasthan in the rest of india put together.
When you will be in Rajasthan, you will see royality, forts, havelis, sand dunes, jungles and even mountains also.
Evey place has its own story and history and you are gonna love this.
Really Rajasthan IS INCRIDIBLE

"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.

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.
