We landed at Jaipur (Pink City) and drove straight to the Hotel (Crimson Park) - a good hotel. We visited Chokhi Dani in the evening to witness the rural lifestyle connecting Rajasthani tribes -their culture, tradition. This is a must visit if you visit Rajasthan. Next day morning, we went on sightseeing the main tourist attractions like Amer Fort, City Palace, Jantar Mantar and Hawa Mahala. The architecture is splendid and worth witnessing . Next Day as we travelled to Bikaner, we were amazed to see the Aravali plains amidst the rugged desert city of Bikaner and enroute visited Government's (Asia's No. 1) camel breeding farm. Later checked in at Raj Vilas - a good hotel. Next day had sight seeing Tours of Junagadh Fort (a magnificent structure made of marble and red sandstone) which also houses Anup Mahal, Chandra Mahal, fool Mahal, and Darbar Niwas . Next Day we travelled to Jaisalmer and checked in at Hotel Desert Palace - this hotel too a good hotel by any standard. We visited Jaisalmer Fort, Patwon Haveli, Gadisar Lake and post lunch drove to witness the prime attraction of Jaisalmer - sam sand dunes - desert safari and camel safari - these were awesome . Next day, we travelled to the second largest city of Rajasthan - Jodhpur - and checked in at Zone by the Park Hotel - another good hotel. We then went for sight seeing local forts, temples, palaces amidst the stark landscape of Thar Desert we were ready to visit our final destination - Udaipur - checked in at Amargarh Hotel - a new hotel on the Ahmedabad highway. We went for sight seeing tour of City Palace, Pichola Lake, Fatehsagar Lake and Sahelion ki Bari . . Although Rajasthan is considered to be a tourists' paradise, what surprises me why the State and Central Governments are ignoring the basic necessities - cleanliness and maintenance of monuments - it is time to pull up your socks - if you want continued tourists visits this part of the most sought after destination.
I am heading to Rajasthan
Rajasthan is India's largest state, located on its north-western border with Pakistan. It is surrounded by the states of Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Punjab. Rajasthan is bisected by the Aravalli hills, dividing it into two distinct landscapes. On the west is Rajasthan's unique feature, the Thar Desert an area of sand, scrub and thorn. The other is the region to the east of the Aravallis, which is more rain fed and hospitable. The culture of Rajasthan is defined by the Rajputana kingdoms that ruled it for centuries; the word Rajput meaning sons of royalty. The Thar Desert region saw the Desert Kingdoms of Marwar (modern Jodhpur), Jaisalmer, and Bikaner. The east saw the kingdoms of Mewar (modern Chittor and Udaipur), Amber (modern Amber and Jaipur), and Hadoti (modern Bundi, Kota and Jhalawar) among many others. As a result, Rajasthan has a larger concentration of forts, palaces, and royal riches than any other place in India. This is the reason why tourism is a primary pillar of the economy; apart from agriculture and cattle rearing. Several palaces or abandoned fortresses have been converted to Heritage Hotels to attract visitors and provide an income for the erstwhile princes. The capital Jaipur, with its many imposing buildings made of rosy sandstone, is called Pink City. The City Palace complex and Hawa Mahal are examples of Rajasthani-Mughal architecture. The old parts of town offer shopping such as jewellery, hand-dyed clothes, precious stones and craftwork. Jaipur has an international airport. Udaipur has many lakes, lakeside palaces, and the largest palace complex (City Palace) in Rajasthan. Jaisalmer fort is made of yellow sandstone such that it's called the Golden Fort. Jaisalmer also gives access to pristine sand dunes of Sam and Khuri, with camel safaris and nomadic music. The Amber Fort (near Jaipur, 16thcentury); the Chittor Fort; Junagarh Fort (at Bikaner); Mehrangarh Fort, (at Jodhpur, 15thcentury) are among the main fortress attractions. The Shekhawati region in the north east offers painted havelis belonging to old business families. Ranthambore and Sariska National Parks are for tiger reserves while Keoladeo Ghana National Park (or Bharatpur) is a bird-rich wetland, where over 375 species of migratory birds visit each year. Mt Abu is the only hill station in Rajasthan.
There is so much to see in Rajasthan.
