Rajasthan the land of Kings is about the stories of warriors and there chivalry, romance, glory and tragedy in fairy tale proportions... Rajasthan is where all the country's similes and metaphors appear to have come together. Sand dunes, wooded hills and amazing lakes, palaces and rugged forts, men and women in colourful turbans and sarees, bustling towns and quiet villages, camels, elephants and tigers, harsh sunlight and the cool evening breeze are all here in abundance. But they form only part of an intricate tapestry. Beneath the surface, expect to find many contradictions. Wherever you travel, particularly when you escape from the popular tourist destinations, you will come across the unexpected, wheather it is a local fair or a breathtaking view. The mood and the rhythm of the countryside changes from one region to another and from season to season. It is a land of surprises. It is a land of amazing natural beauty that can fascinate even the most seasoned traveller. A magical sojourn reverberating with age old culture and traditions, the state enfolds in its lap a diverse kaleidoscope of stunningly beautiful and fascinating artifacts. The range is unparalleled even while it is sophisticated in its simplicity. Rajasthan is often portrayed as one vast open-air museum, with its relics so well preserved that it delights even the most skeptical traveller.
