Jaipur Tours

Location :
Prime Attraction : Hawa Mahal - Nahargarh Fort - City Palace - Jantar Mantar

Jaipur, called the Pink city because most of its buildings are of sandstone, was chosen by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II (1693-1743) for his capital. It still is the vibrant capital of the desert state of Rajasthan and a major attraction for the first-time visitor.

Jaipur is surrounded on all sides by rugged hills, crowned with forts and enclosed by embattled walls. The Old City, the actual Pink City, is a great place to wander around. Maharaja Man Singh II had the whole city painted pink when the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, visited Jaipur in 1876. Today, every home within the old city is obliged by law to maintain this facade. Fabulous, tall houses with latticed windows line the narrow streets of the old city, their rose pink colour lending enchantment to a scene which is almost magical at sunset. The city, which is very well planned, is laid out in a grid pattern.

Ajmer/Pushkar Tours

Location :
Prime Attraction : The Dargah in Ajmer - Adhai-din-ka-jhonpra - Taragarh Fort in Ajmer

Ajmer is like an oasis in the otherwise barren land of Rajasthan. The city was founded by Raja Ajay Pal Chauhan in the 7th Century A.D. Today, Ajmer is reputed as major center for culture and education for both the Hindus and Muslims. It is also the base for visiting Pushkar- the abode of Lord Brahma.

Udaipur Tours

Location :
Prime Attraction : City Palace - Sahelion-ki-Bari - Pratap Memorial - Fateh Sagar

Located around the shimmering blue water, Udaipur in Rajasthan is reputed as one of the most romantic cities in India. The city was founded in 1567 by Maharana Udai Singh on the advice of a sage and today it is a hit tourist destination of Rajasthan among the tourists from across the world. The palaces of Udaipur are straight out of a fairy-tale book, lakes, temples, gardens and narrow lanes lines withdrawn with stalls, relives the reminisces of a heroic past, valor and chivalry.

Jodhpur Tours

Location :
Prime Attraction:Umaid Bhawan Palace-Chamunda Devi Temple-Jaswant Thada-Meherangarh Fort

Delightful in Every Way
On the edge of the Thar Desert stands Jodhpur, the city of Rajasthan dominated by an imposing fort. The old city is surrounded by a wall with eight gates and the new city is built around the wall.
The people of Jodhpur are hospitable and their personalities are as colorful as their attires. Jodhpur is an amalgamation of camel-driven carts, Rajasthani men with bright turbans, women in traditional jewellery, austere sand dunes, architectural wonders and the mouth-watering Rajasthani cuisine.

Bikaner Tours

Location :
Prime Attractio : Lalgarh Palace - The Gajner Wildlife Sanctuary - Karnimata Temple Junagarh Fort - Devi Kund - Kalibanga

Experience the fascinating desert life at Bikaner. Located on the northern point of the triangle of the desert cities of Rajasthan, the city dates back to over 500 years. Like most of the other cities of the desert region, Bikaner in Rajasthan has been able to keep its medieval flavor alive. Water has been limited here so the customary water places and gardens are missing.

Jaisalmer Tours

Location :
Prime Attraction : Jain Temples - Desert Festival - Jaisalmer Fort - Desert National Park

Jaisalmer, exotic, remote, and beautiful, is a bit of a paradox. Set so deep in the heart of the desert that one would expect barren near-desolation, this frontier town is today one of Rajasthan's best-loved tourist destinations. Local colour and warmth prevail over the inhospitable and forbidding terrain, imbuing the medieval town with a special magic.
