Explore Rajasthan with Elegant Resorts
Larger than France, Rajasthan is a vast region of battle-scarred forts and turreted marble palaces of breathtaking grandeur. The 'Pink City' of Jaipur, Rajasthan's evocative capital, is generally the starting point for any tourist visiting the state and, for the first-time visitor, is certainly a feast for the eyes and senses. Despite having grown into a bustling metropolis, the ancient heart of Jaipur still beats within its fairytale palaces, beautifully laid out gardens and parks, rugged fortresses and attractive monuments perched on barren hills and broad avenues. Other places worth visiting in Rajasthan are Udaipur, dubbed the 'Venice of the East' because of its intertwining canals, spectacular lakes and majestic buildings; Alwar, popularly known as the 'Tiger's Gate of Rajasthan' and Jodhpur, situated at the edge of the Thar Desert, with its beautiful palaces echoing the splendour of days gone by.
