Rajasthan Tourism & Travel Guide

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.

Jaipur, Rajasthan
This is one of the most magnificent forts in not only Jaipur but in the entire state of Rajasthan. The main area of the fort is covered by a royal palace which is a mix of white marble, pink and pale yellow sandstone. The palace has four parts and each of them has their personal courtyard as well. You can easily consider taking an elephant ride up and down if the budget permits. Suraj Pol is the entry gate of the fort and the main courtyard is named as Jaleb Chowk. There is another gate here called the Chand Pol as well. For those who are a little religious do not forget to check out and pray at the Siladevi Temple within the fort. Overall, the place has a spectacular architecture and the planned structure will surely mesmerize you.

Udaipur, Rajasthan
City Palace is a name that rings a bell of amazing culture and great architecture. It is one of the must things to do in Udaipur. The palace is located in the centre of the city and is a combination of amazing courtyards, buildings and gardens. Jai Singh was the Maharaja to build the outer most wall of City Palace. However, there has been various restorations and adaptations in the following centuries till date. There are various buildings within the palace, many of which were built in the 20th century. Where architecture is concerned, it is a beautiful mix of Rajasthani and Mughal cultures. The entry gate, Virendra Pol leads to the Mubarak Mahal which has a colonial look and a mix of Islamic, European and Rajput style of architecture. Today, this place is a museum that shows various exhibits starting from royal shawls to costumes. Some other places to explore here are diwan-e-khas, diwan-i-am, the armoury and Chandra Mahal.
