Rajasthan Holidays

A royal fairytale

Few destinations can match the sheer splendour of India’s largest state. Rajasthan translates to the Land of Kings, and it’s an apt title for a landscape blanketed in vast desert kingdoms, lavish palaces, and evocative ruins that whisper of India’s remarkable past.

The jewel in the crown for most visitors is the Taj Mahal, which sits just beyond Rajasthan’s official borders in Agra – one of the Golden Triangle’s three peaks. The world’s most magnificent mausoleum was brought to life by the Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, and built from 1631–1648.

Delhi marks the second Golden Triangle tip, and Jaipur the third. Known as the Pink City due to its buildings’ trademark dusky-pink hue, Jaipur is Rajasthan’s largest city and a worthy capital of the state.

Of course, no visit to Rajasthan would be complete without unveiling its many hidden gems. Lesser-known cities like Jodhpur, the Blue City, and Jaisalmer, the Golden City, offer up a treasure chest of sights. You’ll discover everything from lofty hilltop citadels, to fairytale-worthy forts.
