Introducing Rajasthan, India

Walk in the footsteps of maharajas, as you explore teeming jungles, bustling cities and candy-coloured palaces. Rajasthan encapsulates the full romance of India, from breath-taking ancient ruins to vibrant festivals, rich cultural history and incredible flora and fauna. Aptly named ‘the land of kings’, a visit to regal Rajasthan promises an immersive experience, crowned with memories you’ll treasure for years to come.

Things to do

HISTORY
You’ll find stunning reminders of Rajasthan’s illustrious history at every turn. From the ancient city of Pushkar – where Brahma himself is said to have transformed a lotus flower into a holy lake – to 9th century Hindu temples, intricate Jain architecture and, of course, the iconic UNSECO World Heritage sites. Rajasthan is a cultural treasure trove, seeped in myth and legend. 

WILDLIFE
Known for its world-class reserves, the varied habitats of Rajasthan support a vast abundance of wildlife. Keen birders will delight in the ever-changing roster of migratory species and should visit the Desert National Park for a once-in-a-lifetime glimpse of the critically endangered Great Indian Bustard. From the riotous camel festivals of the Thar desert dunes, to the atmospheric Ranthambore Tiger Reserve – renowned for its legendary population of Royal Bengals – be ready for a vast array of magical animal encounters. 

CULTURE
Explore the salmon-coloured Old Town of Jaipur, where you’ll find the historic Palace of the Winds and Jantar Mantar astronomy observatory. Or ascend to the vast Mehrangarh Fort to gaze down on the azure buildings of Jodhpur, home to many Brahmins who paint their homes and temples in homage to Lord Shiva. Wander bustling markets to explore a wealth of local handicrafts, textiles and jewellery, before unwinding in cool rooftop bars as you’re entertained with traditional music and fire dancing.
