Resplendent rajas, bejewelled ranis, extravagant courts, faqirs and saints, these are the images that have lured travellers since time immemorial. From the cosmopolitan city of Delhi which showcases cultural assimilation of a millennia we move to the romantic settings of harsh desert lands. With fairy-tale settings of desert and mountains, parched earth gasping for water to oasis which gave birth to colourful life, grand forts and innumerable tales of love and valour, Rajasthan comes alive in all its splendour. Admire the exquisite havelis of Mandawa, make friends with the 'ship of the desert' at the camel farm in Bikaner. Bury your earthly worries in the shifting sands of Jaisalmer, before setting off to Jodhpur to admire the skills of artisans who handcraft exquisite pieces in wood. The city of lakes, Udaipur is a welcoming change in this desert land before arriving at that most romantic of cities, Jaipur. Our journey comes to a close at that most beautiful medieval city, Jaipur.
