Jaipur the capital of Rajasthan, is an enthralling historical city and the gateway to India's most flamboyant state. The city’s colourful, chaotic streets ebb and flow with a heady brew of old and new.
Mighty Mehrangarh, the muscular fort that towers over the Blue City of Jodhpur, is a magnificent spectacle and an architectural masterpiece.
- Beside shimmering Lake Pichola, with the ochre and purple ridges of the wooded Aravalli Hills stretching away in every direction, Udaipur has a romance of setting unmatched in Rajasthan and arguably in all India.
- The fort of Jaisalmer is a breathtaking sight: a massive sandcastle rising from the sandy plains like a mirage from a bygone era. No place better evokes exotic camel-train trade routes and desert mystery.
- Rajasthan’s only hill station sits among green forests on the state’s highest mountain at the southwestern end of the Aravalli Hills and close to the Gujrat border.
- Ranthambore National Park or Ranthambhore is one of the largest national parks in northern India.
