Rajasthan represents the ultimate confluence of history, chivalry, romance, rugged natural beauty and colour. Today, many years after the last bugle was sounded, and after the warring kingdoms of erstwhile Rajputana sheathed their swords, the desert appears romantic, its arts the expression of a brave yet sensitive race, its architecture the embodiment of strength and grace. It is as if in celebration of life itself. While an age has come to pass, cities flourish and contemporary Rajasthan is an explosion of colour and pageantry. It is the ultimate destination offering something to suit the tastes of every single different traveller. Desert and sand dunes, lakes, wooded hills, magnificent palaces and rugged forts, men and women in colourful turbans and skirts, bustling towns and quiet villages, camels, elephants and tigers, harsh sunlight and the cool evening breeze – are all there in abundance.  Wherever you travel, you will come across the unexpected, whether it is a local fair or a breath-taking view.  It is a land or surprises, a land of amazing natural beauty that can fascinate even the most seasoned traveller.
