The State of Rajasthan is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful Region of India.
many princely states, impressive forts and magnificent palaces set in the Thar
desert evoke uniquely colourful images of medieval India. Rajasthan means land
of Rajas (or Kings) but also called Rajputana "the country of Rajputs" The
Aravali mountain range, one of the oldest mountain ranges of the word, extending
from north to south, divides the state into two natural regions.
and the Thar Desert are the two most contrasting features of Rajasthan's
geographical make-up. Fairs and festivals of Rajasthan reflect the vigour and
life style of its people. Vibrant colours, music and festivities make the golden
sand come alive. Veiled, bejewelled women sing and dance to devotional rhythms.
Rajasthan has a fair for every religious occasion, for every
season and for every harvest. The Desert Triangle tour is specially
more attractive during the desert festival taking place in the month
of March every year.
