The Royal Rajasthan Tourism
Royal, vibrant and colourful tapestry, these are the words that comes first to our mind when thinking about Rajasthan Tourism. It was winters of December when we planned for Rajasthan Travel and booked our Rajasthan holiday package.
We did not realise how large and expansive India is until we visited Rajasthan. On reaching the airport we were received by our Tourism Guide for Rajasthan who was dressed in traditional Rajasthani attire with a colourful and unique style of turbans on their heads. He welcomed us with a big smile and led us to our hotel.
We were explained our day tour and asked to get ready and finish our breakfast before 12pm. We followed the instructions as we had already started enjoying the trip and did not want to lose any moment of enjoyment.
We started our trip from the famous Hawa Mahal of Jaipur. I noticed why Jaipur is called as the Pink City. It is because of the numerous pink coloured houses which were supposedly painted by a ruler to welcome Prince Albert. Coming back to Hawa Mahal, it is a palace which served as a high screen wall so that the women of the royal family could have a view of the street without coming in public(women were not allowed to come in public those days!). The palace is a beautiful five-storied monument made of red and pink sandstone. We enjoyed clicking photos around it.
Later we visited some more palaces and forts like City Palace, Umaid Bhawan, Chittorgarh Fort, Golden fort or Sonar Kila, Amer Palace and Jaigarh Fort. Our guide said that Camel Safari is the major attractions in Rajasthan and hence we should not miss this opportunity. So, why wait? Next moment we were on the camel taking stroll through the sandy escapes of Rajasthan. We experienced the colourful Rajasthan Tour through this unique vantage point!(funnily, our vantage point was going up and down!) enough of our demands it was time for the little ones to demand now.
Kids insisted for wildlife tour and our guide next day planned our tour to the famous wildlife park of Rajasthan-Ranthambore National Park. Kids too had a great time there. Shopping was the most awaited part of the trip so we just rushed for it. I bought dupattas that are quite similar to our scarf and are worn around the neck. The shopkeeper told me to go for Bandhani print dupattas as they are popular of here. I immediately purchased it!
It was a four days trip and we enjoyed it to the core. We danced on tradiotnal beats, drank the famous local drink called thandai and savoured on some lip-smacking ethnic dishes like daal-baati-churma, ghevar, gatte ki sabzi and many more! Must say Indian curries are incomparable.
Our visit to Rajasthan will always be a memorable experience.
