Rajasthan is consistently India’s best-loved tourist destination, famous for its multitude of forts and fine palaces built over many centuries by its former Rajput kings and warlords.Travel through the northern and central parts of the region, bordering the Thar Desert, where the royal architecture developed its own unique flavour as architects and craftsmen responded to the challenges of the terrain.

Visit Rajasthan’s major cities, from the world-famous buzzing metropolis of Jaipur with its beautiful palaces and bustling markets, to the delightfully quiet and remote outpost of Nagaur, where you can explore the recently restored Garden Palace.

Highlights:

  • Enjoy the magnificent fort and palace museum of Mehrangarh in Jodhpur
  • Visit Bikaner and stay in the Maharaja’s former shooting lodge by the lake at Gajner
  • Explore the deserted towns of Shekhawati, famed for its painted houses
