27 December 2016 to 19 January 2017
Rajasthan, ‘The Land of the Kings’; one of the most colourful and best known destinations in India. You will visit well known and less visited places, with time for in-depth exploration; and experience an architecture set against the dramatic backdrop of desert plains, rugged mountain ranges and ravines, the greatest fortresses, finest palaces, cities and temples built by the Rajputs, the Jains and the Great Mughals. Experience a courtly culture which was responsible for a range of spectacular arts forms including paintings, textiles, pottery, woodcarving and jewellery, and pockets of life unchanged for centuries, and the extraordinary ‘buzz’ of the nation’s capital and what will be the highlight for many; the Taj Mahal.
