Celebrate the colours of India. Colours that are everywhere… Where cities are called Pink city, Golden city, White city, Lake City and where we have brightly decorated camels and elephants during the festivals. Welcome to Rajasthan (the land of Kings), a land of deserts, camel train, glittering jewellery, mesmerising music and art, and a long calendar of festivals. Rajasthan is dotted with grand palaces and monuments which stand tall to narrate the stories of the chivalrous Rajputs and their traditions.
