Rajasthan Travel Guide and Tourism

India’s largest state, Rajasthan, is an experience evocative of colors and cultures, history and heritage. A part of India’s Golden Triangle (the tourist circuit of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur), ornate palaces, ancient havelis and shimmering lakes, shrouded in mystery and magic are scattered across the state. Rajasthan is decked with the major tourist attractions in cities like Jaipur, Udaipur, Jaisalmer and Jodhpur, many of which have colourful monikers. Jaipur is one of the most popular places to visit in Rajasthan. The pink city is home to many architectural masterworks such as the Hawa Mahal, City Palace, Amer Fort and Jantar Mantar. Tourists flock to Jodhpur, the blue city to witness the sound and light show at the Mehrangarh Fort or for a romantic boat ride on the Balsamand and Gulab Sagar lakes. Head to Jaisalmer to capture a cinematic sunset across golden dunes at Khuri village and Udaipur for the glistening Lake Pichola with spectacular views of the Jag Mandir and the Lake Palace. If you want to escape to cooler climes, drive up to Mount Abu, just hours away from Udaipur. One of the relatively lesser known places in Rajasthan is Pushkar, dotted with boho cafes overlooking serene lakeside ghats. Taking a dip in the holy waters of the lake is one of the most-sought after things to do in Rajasthan. While you are in Pushkar, make sure you stop by the Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti Dargah in Ajmer.
