Rajasthan Tours & Holiday Packages at India Unbound

Like the jewels for which Rajasthan is famous, this arid region dazzles with splendid colours.

A sea of pink, blue and white buildings dominate the cities of Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur while nomadic camel herders with their red and pink turbans roam the countryside. Peacocks with bright blue and green feathers grace hotel lawns, and mighty palaces and forts hold riches and tales of an opulent and colourful past.

Within the last hundred years, powerful maharajas still ruled much of this land. They lived in luxury in lavishly decorated palaces while private armies kept watch for enemies from vantage points along stout fortress walls.

Nowadays, the lives of the maharajas have changed. Their titles and feudal powers have been swept away. Most of their palaces remain, some as private domains for descendants, while others are museums showcasing hunting trophies, vintage cars and antiques. Many are hotels, some as palatial as ever, despite the careful addition of modern deluxe amenities. Others are rambling properties where little has changed.

Each year some of India’s biggest events are held in Rajasthan – Ancient forts provide a backdrop for gala dinners and world- renowned festivals providing an abundance of places to visit in Rajasthan.
