Royal palaces, golden sand dunes, timeless forts and jovial natives; are the few axioms that define Rajasthan. So, if you have already started planning your next holidays, listed below are the top 6 places to visit in Rajasthan.
The capital city of Rajasthan, Jaipur is also known as the ‘Pink City’. You can ride an elephant to the cliff fort of Amber, gaze at the airy chambers of Hawa Mahal or simply walk past the historical collections at City Palace. If neither, explore the shopping lanes along with the city. Traditional dresses, block prints, wooden carvings, leather products and trendy jewelry; the lanes have some of the best buy things from Rajasthan.
Being one of the best places to visit in Rajasthan, Jaisalmer is predominantly popular for its vast sand dunes. Yes, this is the Thar desert of Rajasthan. You can spend a night at the desert camps while enjoying cultural programs, camel rides, bonfire and even adventure activities like parasailing. The place also hosts one of the living forts of India ie. The Jaisalmer Fort or the Sonar Kella.
The architectural splendors of the Dilwara temple at Mount Abu make it a unique attraction among Rajasthan destinations. Located amidst the high cliffs of Mount Abu, this 16th-century Jain temple is well-known for its opulent marble carvings. Surrounded by rugged cliffs, Nakki Lake is another point of interest in Mt Abu. You can also enjoy boating at this pristine water body.
It’s the ‘City of Lakes’. The only thing you can grasp around Udaipur is wide and deep lakes. Surrounded by the Aravali Mountains at many outlines, the lakes render a heavenly beauty to the place. Lake Pichola, City Palace, Saheliyon Ki Bari, and Jagmandir are some of the other tourist places in Udaipur. You can also visit the heritage destination of Shilpgram and have a tang of the Rajasthani culture and traditions.
Remember Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas tied their knot at the Umaid Bhawan Palace? It’s here in Jodhpur, the ‘Blue City’. Gawk at the high walls of Mehrangarh Fort, watch the ‘friendly’ monkeys at the Mandore Gardens or explore the royal ceilings of Umaid Bhawan Palace; it’s all your choice. Also, don’t miss the zip line activity and rooftop restaurant, Chokhelao Garden at the Mehrangarh Fort.
Known for its yearly camel festival, Bikaner is yet another fabulous place to visit in Rajasthan. The timeless fortress of Junagarh is the main attraction here. Don’t miss out on the Karni Mata temple which is famous for its rats. Bikaner is also famed for its sweetmeats and snacks. Ghewar Rabdi, Sohan Halwa, Cheena Malpua and Churma Laddu are few of the must-try dishes at Bikaner.
Rajasthan tour is incomplete without its cuisines. Don’t forget to try out the tangy and juicy dishes of the state. Apart from the sweet dishes mentioned above, the widely prevalent Daal-Bati-Churma, Ker Sangeri with Bajre ki Roti and Gatte ki Khichdi are my recommendations of try out in Rajasthan.
