Rajasthan Travel Guide
Rajasthan is a place where cities pink and gold have been built over ashes of the dead. Citadels and fortresses, palaces and ramparts have sprung up in between the sands of the Thar, the great Indian desert that stretches through the western half of Rajasthan. The desert lands are framed by the 700 km craggy heights of the Aravallis, cutting the land in half. To the east of the Aravallis, Rajasthan grows its cotton in an agriculturally rich alluvial soil. 

Rajasthan is a land of ornate architecture, decorative palaces, wide expanses of water and summer palaces on islands. The fortresses are steeped in memories: women who preferred mass suicide rather than fall into the hands of the enemy. Warrior clans are bound by inviolable codes of honour and chivalry; the Rajput pride and chivalry are a part of folklore.

In Jaipur, is the enchantingHawa Mahal, Jaipur Hawa Mahal or Palace of Winds, tier upon tier of curved arch surmounting fairy casements with ornamental screens. The imposing gate of the City Palace is guarded by stone elephants. At the entrance of the palace, stands the Jantar Mantar, the largest and best preserved observatories built by Maharaja Jaisingh. The Rambagh Palace once a royal home is now a fabulous hotel. Pushkar, site of the biggest cattle fair in Rajasthan, is a brief 14 km from AjmerChittorgarh fort is remembered for its association with the saint princess Mirabai and Padmini's Palace a pavilion where Alauddin Khilji saw the glimpse of the princess. Rana Kumbha's Vijai Stumbh stands in memory of a solitary victory. TheSawai Madhopur forest retreat and the Ranthanhor sanctuary are major tourist attractions

Places to visit:

Best time to visit: The hot wind sweeps over Rajasthan but brave it for an experience of a lifetime.The temperature lessens during the night. Winters can be quite cold in the desert during winters.

City Palace Jaipur - This is the former royal residence combining Rajasthani and Mughal styles. The palace has a museum with a superb collection of costumes and armoury of Rajputs and Mughals. The palace also has an art gallery with an excellent collection of miniature paintings, carpets and rare astronomical works in Arabic, Latin, Persian and Sanskrit.

Jantar Mantar - is an observatory in Jaipur and is the largest of the five remarkable observatories made by Jai Singh in five different cities. Its complex instruments represents the high points of medieval Indian astronomy. 
Bharatpur National Park
Bharatpur National Park - Situated in eastern Rajasthan, about 176 kms away from Delhi, and 50 km west of Agra, is the Keoladeo Ghana or Bharatpur National Park, one of the most spectacular bird sanctuaries in India, nesting indigenous water- birds as well as migratory water birds and water side birds. It is also inhabited by sambar, chital, nilgai and boar.

Jaisalmer Fort - over 800 years old, crowns the Trikuta Hill. Within its walls, defended by 99 turrets, lies the old city, nearly a quarter of modern Jaisalmer. Seen from outside, the sight must be almost identical to what was seen by merchants on their overland camel caravans to central Asia. Once this desert outpost was an important gate for the trade route, and Jaisalmer grew wealthy on the proceeds.

Jain temples - This group of fine Jain temples were built in the 12th to 15th century within the fort walls of Jaisalmer. They are beautifully carved and dedicated to Rikhabdevji and Sambhavnathji. The Gyan Bhandar, a library containing some extremely old manuscripts, is within the temple complex. 

Clock Tower - is a popular landmark in the old city of Jodhpur. The vibrant market has bazaars selling textiles, silver and handicrafts. 

Umaid Bhawan and Palace - Built of marble and pink sandstone, it was designed by the president of the British Royal Institute of architects for Maharaja Umaid Singh and took 15 years to build. The museum is worth a visit. 
Jogi Mahal, Ranthambore
Ranthambhor sanctuary - The Ranthambhor National Park certainly is one of the most picturesque game reserves in the world - the entire forest being dominated by the silent, ruined battlements of the Ranthambhor Fort, which is inside the sanctuary. Another interesting feature of the park is a huge banyan tree - supposedly one of the world's largest - near the graceful Jogi Mahal water palace. 

Dilwara temples - These remarkable Jain temples are Mt Abu’s main attraction and among the finest examples of Jain architecture in India. The complex includes two temples in which the art of carving marble reached unsurpassed heights.

Tower of Victory - was erected by Rana Kumbha to commemorate his victory over Mahmud Khilji of Malwa. It rises 37 m high in nine storeys. You can climb the narrow stairs to the eighth storey.

Anna Marie (United States)

India is a daunting destination for first-time American visitors like ourselves. We were well looked after by Haroon Baktoo and Indian Tribal Tours, who took most of the cares from our shoulders and made it possible for us to enjoy this astounding country. When we are able to return, we'll sign up with Indian Tribal Tours again--South India next time!
David & Claire (United States)

I just wanted to say thank you for a memorable trip and great planning.  My mum and I would like to compliment Amit on his caring assistance throughout our tour in Delhi.  He was always accommodating and very helpful to us.  The time with Arun in Mumbai was short but also very good. I will definitely recommend your company to friends and family that want to visit in a few months’ time.

Wonderful India Experience" All thanks to Indian Tribal Tours...our travel was made easy & comfortable which was difenitely not possible on our own. There drivers & office staff make a great team... Good Job.
Jeff Stevenson (England)

The trip was well organized, we got to see everything we wanted to. We could probably have had a more tight program, but we felt it was not necessary, it would only have been too much stress. So we were completely satisfied with the program!
