Rajasthan literally, "Land of Kings" or "Land of Kingdoms", is India's largest state by area or 10.4% of India's total area. It is located on the western side of the country, where it comprises most of the wide and inhospitable Thar Desert (also known as the "Rajasthan Desert" and "Great Indian Desert") and shares a border with Pakistan along the Sutlej-Indus river valley. Elsewhere it is bordered by other Indian states: Gujarat to the southwest; Madhya Pradesh to the southeast; Uttar Pradesh and Haryana to the northeast; and Punjab to the north. Its features include the ruins of the Indus Valley Civilization at Kalibanga; the Dilwara Temples, a Jainpilgrimage site at Rajasthan's only hill station, Mount Abu, in the ancient Aravalli mountain range; and, in eastern Rajasthan, the Keoladeo National Park near Bharatpur, a World Heritage Site known for its bird life. Rajasthan is also home to two national tiger reserves, the Ranthambore National Park in Sawai Madhopur and Sariska Tiger Reserve in Alwar. The state was formed on 30 March 1949 when Rajputana – the name adopted by the British Raj for its dependencies in the region was merged into the Dominion of India. Its capital and largest city is Jaipur, located on the state's eastern side.

Udaipur, the city combines real beauty with a picturesque association of a glorious past. It stands in a valley, amidst green hills on the banks of LakePichola. On little islands in the lake, from the water's edge, rise marble palaces that glisten like fairy castles.Crowning the ridge in which the city clusters, along the shore of the lake is the palace of the Maharana. Possibly no city in Rajasthan is quite as romantic as Udaipur and is replete with fantastic hill top fortresses, exotic fairy tale palaces and gripping legends of medieval chivalry and heroism. Begin your city tour and visit the famous City Palace, a conglomeration of buildings added by various Maharanas. The palace manages to retain a surprising uniformity of design. The entrance is through Hathi Pol (elephant gate) along the main street of the old city, past the Jagdish Temple. The paintings, mosaics, intricately carved ‘chhatris’ and of course the architecturally brilliant facade all contribute in making a visit to the City Palace a truly memorable experience.Housed in the upper floor at FatehPrakashPalace, is a unique collection of crystal ornaments from four-poster beds to chairs, fountains, vases, crockery and furniture. The dazzling gallery is considered to boast one of the largest crystal collections in the world completing the royal repertoire of FatehPrakashPalace.

Agra - Two great Mughal monarchs, Akbar and Shah Jahan, transformed the little village of Agra into a befitting second capital of the Mughal Empire - giving it the name Dar-ul-Khilafat {seat of the Emperor}. Today, a visitor to Agra is caught up in a world of contrasting edifices of red sandstone and white marble, narrow gallies and quaint buggies, and that irresistible charm that this favourite city of the Mughals still retains.It is not surprising, that modern Agra still reflects its Mughal heritage most conspicuously. A walk down the narrow bustling streets of the city will introduce the visitor to the wafting aroma of Mughlai cuisine.

Begin your tour with a visit to Taj Mahal.

Poets have tried to illustrate its beauty in words. Painters have drawn vibrant pictures of it and musicians have played to large crowds with the Taj Mahal in the background.Termed as one of the world's new seven wonders, the Taj is a complete show-stealer. Standing tall and proud in the city of Agra, it was built in the memory of the beautiful Anjuman Bano Begum.It is a massive mausoleum of white marble, built between 1631 and 1648 on order of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan.This universally admired architectural wonder is the best tribute to the spirit of love.  The Taj Mahal is ultimately the culmination of two centuries of evolving designs of the Mughal. The architect is lost in oblivion of the vast pages of history written and re-written.

The work on the mausoleum started in 1633 and 20,000 workers laboured for 17 years to finish this marvel. It was a joint effort of skilled architects, stone-carvers, calligraphers, inlay craftsmen, and masons from Persia and Turkey. Forming a perfect cube the Taj stands in a landscaped Mughal garden with two sandstone buildings that add up to the beauty of the monument while the four minarets at each corner beautifully frame the tomb.The coloured inlay brings out the sculptural work and relief carvings that are of floral, calligraphic and geometric designs. (Taj Mahal is closed on Fridays).Situated two kilometres towards west of the Taj Mahal on the banks of the river Yamuna. It was built by the third Mughal Emperor, Akbar, and added to by his son Jahangir and grandson Shahjahan. Agra Fort is an imposing structure with walls of red sandstone, almost two miles long and contains palaces, audience halls and mosques built by all the three emperors. The fort presents a good sampling of Islamic and Hindu architectural styles.
