One of the most colorful and vibrant states in the country, with a strong blend of culture, history, music, and cuisine falling in love with Rajasthan doesn’t take much time.

Rajasthan abounds in forts that offer sweeping views of the panoramic landscape. Rajasthan’s three most essential forts are the Amber Fort in Jaipur, Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, and Jaisalmer Fort, commonly known as Sonar Quila.
Rajasthan also has many palaces of historical significance, the famous ones being the Umaid Bhawan Palace and the Jaipur City Palace. Both of these palaces date back to the high times, and you can see the furniture and other objects used by the royal families on view in these palaces.
