Rajasthan is a land where colours, the desert, forts, camels, traditional food and folk music conspire to make a traveller its own.

Jaipur is famous all over the world as a beautiful showcase of the vibrant Rajasthani culture. The biggest and the capital city of Rajastan, it sees a constant inflow of foreign as well as Indian tourists the year round. It's also known as the pink city and has some of the choicest architecture you can witness in India. HolidayIQ traveller Ashish says, "Jaipur needs no introduction. Moreover, it belongs to the Royal state of Rajasthan which is known for its colourful culture, vibrance and excellent hospitality.

A reservoir of rich Rajasthani heritage, Jodhpur is famous for the numerous havelis, baoris and dynasties that used to rule it. Known as the blue city because of the colour of houses around the Mehrangarh fort, Jodhpur's experience is incomplete without a view from the top of the fort. HolidayIQ traveller Ravinde says, "Fort is a pleasure to visit for those having interest in historic things. A good display of all the weaponry, art and craft.The dresses and jewellery which was wore by kings themselves was a treat for eyes and make us remember our glorious past."

Slightly less mainstream than Jaipur and Jodhpur, Jaisalmer is Rajasthan's soul. Situated by the desert, it is here that you see the rustic flavous of Rajashan. Along with the many forts and havelis, the food here is heavenly. The best part about Jaisalmer is that you can experience the folk music of Rajasthan here. HolidayIQ traveller Dev Nagar says, "A wonderful travel destination. Out of the world experience. The food, the culture, the fort, the people. All have a charm of their own hitherto unknown.The beauty of the sand dunes in the evenings are mesmerizing. Sheer art on canvas. A place that has to be visited to be believed."

Mount Abu is a significant diversion from the places mentioned in this list as it is the only hill station here. The climate is always pleasant and being the highest peak in Aravalli range, the views are always terrific. It also houses many Jain temples that are a source of attraction for those looking for a pilgrimage. HolidayIQ tourist Devulapalli says, "Mount Abu is the only hill station in Rajastan. The place is good for a day's stay or two. One can have a visit to Nakki lake and famous Dilwara temples."
