Regal Heritage Cities
The land of Rajasthan comes alive with exuberant folk dances and music, ballads and spectacular festivities that are an inseparable part of its culture. Especially enchanting are the evenings here, when melodious tunes echoing through the solitude of shimmering sands, fill the air. Many beautiful temples, palaces and havelis dating back over centuries dot the entire state. Even for wild life enthusiasts, this state is an excellent retreat offering a rich variety of flora and fauna. The capital city of Rajasthan, Jaipur, was the stronghold of a clan of rulers whose three hill forts and series of palaces in the city are important attractions. Known as the Pink City because of the colour of the stone used exclusively in the walled city, Jaipur’s bazaars sell embroidered leather shoes, blue pottery, tie-and-dye scarves and other exotic wares.
For most of the time Agra alternated with Delhi as the capital of the Mughal Empire. As such one finds many marvels of the Mughal architecture in and around the city, the most famous of them being the Taj Mahal. Not only does the story of the love of a king for his wife haunt its visitors but also the architectural splendour leaves its visitors mesmerized. The Agra Fort – built by the great Emperor Akbar in 1565 A.D., the fort is a masterpiece of design and construction. Within the fort are a number of exquisite buildings, including the Moti Masjid, Diwan-e-Am, Diwan-e-Khas, Sheesh Mahal and Musamman Burj, where the Emperor Shah Jahan died in imprisonment.
Nestling at the foot of the Aravalli hills, 10 km from the town of Sawai Madhopur, Ranthambore National Park is one of the prime examples of Project Tiger’s conservation efforts. Though Sawai Madhopur is an important town with its own historicity, but it is Ranthambore, which is known the world over. Ranthambore blends history of Rajput valour with scenic natural beauty and is ideal for a wildlife getaway.
Udaipur, named after its founder, the Sisiodia King, Maharana Udai Singh, is like a fairytale. Rajasthan’s “White City”, which you’ll enjoy visiting on your India Holiday, is mostly known for it fabulous lake palace in Udaipur, set like white pearls in the shimmering waters of Lake Pichola.
Jodhpur a city, near the Thar Desert in Rajasthan, is known for its impressive Mehrangarh fort. Founded by Rao Jodha, this city is called the “Blue City” for the blue painted walls of the houses in the town. The magnificent Umaid Bhawan Palace is another landmark that is a must see in Jodhpur. Its museum contains many artifacts of the royal times in Jodhpur.
Jaisalmer, known for its golden fort, made of yellow sandstone, is an important center of handicrafts in Rajasthan. Sandstone carvings and block printed fabrics made here find their way across the world. The carved mansions and Jain temples of Jaisalmer are worth seeing. The sand dunes at Sam, near Jaisalmer are the site of the annual Desert Festival.
