Rajasthan is home of the valiant Rajputs known for their bravery and chivalry. Rajasthan literally, "Land of Kings" is India's largest state by area.

HolidayIQ Traveller Pankaj Kumar from Mumbai shares, “The place is very good. There were so historical places I refer to visit there. There are so many historical places. We really enjoyed the markets in Jaipur. We even bought the grooviest wedding invitations (200 for ten pounds. Hurray! Made the shop owner very happy). We went to see some of the sights as well. All in all, in my opinion, one who does not enjoy shopping won't have a brilliant time in Jaipur and might wish to skip it. The number of tourists in town was very small however to our surprise.”

2. Almost Every City In Rajasthan Represents A Colour
