Rajasthan and Gujarat Vacations

These bordering Indian states share are both sites of the Indus Valley Civilization, one of the world’s most ancient. Jaipur, the capital of 'Pink' Rajasthan, is a bustling city known for its jewelry. Rajasthan is also blessed with lakes at Udaipur, and historic forts at Jodhpur, while cultural roots begin with the fierce Rajput warriors, who ... Read more
wielded double edged swords with both hands to devastating effect. Gujarat is, however, the birthplace of one of the most famously peaceful men ever -- Mahatma Gandhi. Gujarat is religiously diverse, with Hindu, Jain, and Islamic temples on view. Less of a tourist magnet than Rajasthan, Gujarat is also known for its colorful fairs and festivals which go on throughout the year. The people of both states were once known by the same name until the British re-christened the Rajputs. Desert in the north and hills in the south combine with a relatively mild monsoon season, making these states an exotic destination rich in history and culture.

You've got a bunch of individually interesting and historic cities packed into these regions. You've also got a vast desert and long coastline. If you could only go one place in India, this wouldn't be a bad choice.

Mount Abu, Rajasthan

Rajasthan is simply full of colors, despite being 70% desert Rajasthan has the only hill-station of northern India - Mount Abu. Not only naturally beautiful, Mount Abu also owns a rich Historical background with famous marble art temples of Dilwara - See - http://www.mountabu.com/ for details.

Rajasthan may well be the most romantic place in India, a desert-tinged state of ornate medieval palaces, imposing hilltop fortresses, and dusty splendor that is what many people first think of when India comes to mind. A long history of feuding fiefdoms has left the state with some of the most character-filled cities in the whole of the subcontinent -- places like Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, and Jaisalmer. It's richly historic and often stunningly beautiful, and one of the best places on Earth to ride a camel out into the desert and sleep beneath the stars. A true highlight of any trip to India, and one of the neatest regions in all of Asia.

Recently I visited India and its popular destinations which include Delhi, Agra, Khajuraho, Haridwar and most glorious state of country Rajasthan. It was my first visit and I was eagerly waiting when I would reach there and see majestic forts, elephants, camels, people wearing colorful dresses and women wearing different jewelries. It was a cultural trip to various mesmeric stopovers of Indian sub-continent. Travel itinerary of ‘Rajasthan Tour Packages’ allowed me to discover Chittorgarh, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Jaislamer and Ajmer. Temples, castles, lakes, wildlife and mosques were embellished with intricate designs. Food of Indian land was very spicy but being so delightful in flavor it was really delicious. I bought lots of gifts for my family and friends. My preference was colorful Indian attires and jewelleries. I am dreaming to go back to India again and explore every nook and corner over there.

Before going for the tour of Rajasthan, I was little nervous because it’s a huge city and there is nothing to skip but I had only 2 days of time. But, thanks to way to India who took me through with important tourist destinations of Rajasthan. Saw all renowned Havelis and Palaces.

If you have enough time, skip busy, crowded Jaipur and head to Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, and Udaipur instead, all of which are much more pleasant and interesting. Make sure to fit a camel safari in if you have the time.
