India's capital city, Delhi is the second most widely used entry
point in the country, being on the route of most major airlines.
It is well linked by rail, air and road to all parts of the
country. The remains of seven distinctive capital cities - among
them Shahjahanabad and Qutab Minar - can be seen.
udaipur is perhaps a unique pre-modern capital in Rajasthan which
has no fort. Coming to life after the final sacking of Chittor ,
Udaipur saw an explosion of building activity - temples, palaces
and Havelis. Lake Picchola with its two islands- Jagniwas (now
the Lake Palace Hotel) and Jagmandir defines Udaipur. The City
Palace towers over the lake. The artificial Jaisamand Lake was
created in 17th century by damming the Gomti River. There are
beautiful chhatries (Cenotaphs) around the embankment.
The blue city , the city of marwar ( local name of the region)
has the most majestic fortress and the colourfull markets to
offer. Your personal guide takes you on a tour to the land of
rathore rajputs. The tour includes the mehran garh fort , jaswant
thada and a visit to the near by clock tower market.
The Capital of Rajasthan, this picturesque city is a symphony in
Pink, a colour which symbolizes hospitality in Rajput culture.
Built by Raja Jai Singh in the 18th century it is surrounded by
hills topped with rugged fortresses and dotted with fairy tale
palaces. Ambling camels and brightly dressed peasants, treasure
trove of handloom and craft. Come visit city of Love, Legends and
One of the Seven Wonders of the World, built by Emperor Shah
Jehan in the memory of his beloved consort Mumtaz Mahal. This
beautiful mausoleum took 22 years to complete with a work force
of 20,000 craftsmen and master builders, who came from all over
Asia to join in this great work from Baghdad, Shiraz, Delhi,
Samarkand and Turkey. The marble, India's finest; was quarried at
Makrana near Jodhpur. Precious and semi precious stones were
imported from distant lands : Jasper from Punjab, Jade &
Crystal from China, Turquoise from Tibet, Lapis from Afghanistan
and Ceylon, Chrysolite from Egypt, Amethyst from Persia, Agate
from Yemen, Malachite from Russia, Diamonds from Golconda and
Mother of Pearl from the Indian Ocean.
The temples at Khajuraho were built during the Chandela dynasty,
which reached its apogee between 950 and 1050. Only about 20
temples remain; they fall into three distinct groups and belong
to two different religions – Hinduism and Jainism. They
strike a perfect balance between architecture and sculpture. The
Temple of Kandariya is decorated with a profusion of sculptures
that are among the greatest masterpieces of Indian art.
