The home of legendary Rajputs is hailing you.
Rajasthan is truly the reflection of the diversity and essence of India.
Legend says the Rajputs had dwelled and ruled Rajasthan for over 1000 years; and they never really got defeated. The Afghans didn’t break them, the Mughals couldn’t beat them, and lately the British couldn’t entirely control them. The heroics of Rajputana still breathes across the entire land.
Rajasthan has exclusives for everybody – for history seekers, for food buffs, for adventure junkies, for art loves, for cultural enthusiasts, for honeymooners. The mighty Thar Desert, the adventurous wild forests, camel safari and glimpse of tigers, shimmering jewels, traditional delicious cuisines, flamboyant art and vibrant culture, famous colourful fairs and festivals – you name it and Rajasthan has it. The dazzling fairs and festivals in Rajasthan will give you a chance to explore the art, culture, traditions, history and people.

You can hop on a supremely decorated elephant to reach to your 5-star haveli. One day you can take a camel safari on hot sand dunes, next day you can go for a tiger expedition in a thick dense jungle.
