Highlights of Rajasthan

Welcome to the Land of Kings. Royal Rajasthan is India’s true must-see destination, an enchanting region of epic scenery and astonishing history. Principal cities Jaipur and Jodhpur have an abundance of historical attractions, whilst Udaipur in the south and Jaisalmer in the far west are both in contention for most alluring city in the country. Away from the cities there is adventure in spades: exploring tiny rural hamlets on foot or by bike, camping overnight in the sand dunes of the Thar Desert, or trailing tigers, leopards, or migratory birds in a string of national parks and reserves. Accommodation is also a true highlight: Rajasthan is littered with former palaces and stately homes converted into unforgettable heritage properties, mixing unparalleled service and comfort with history, atmosphere, and no little glamour.

Nagaur, India
Nagaur is a Rajasthani crossroads of sorts with one major point of interest: the gorgeous 4th century Ahichhatragarh Fort. As equally well-preserved and well-managed as its sister fort in Jodhpur.
