Welcome to India’s heart and soul, the colourful land of the Maharajas, sprinkled with magnificent forts and scenic palaces across the arid land. The desert-state will charm you with its vivid cultural and artistic legacy. Explore it on a camel’s back on a desert safari, attending one of its many festivals or visiting the lively cities or national parks. Despite the tourist attractions, the legacy of the turbulant past is still impacting on the present day situation. The state remains poor with literacy rates being the third-lowest in India whilst the gender gap remains India’s widest.
The capital of Rajasthan – also known as the „pink city“ – is famous for its pink facades, the Palace of the Winds, the City Palace, a historical astronomical site and nearby Amber Fort. It is also a great example of the coexistence of both, an intact old city and its modern face with plenty of amenities and shopping centres.
The „blue city“ of Jodhpur is undoubtedly a stunning eye-sight with its blue houses doted around majestic Mehrangarh Fort.
