About Rajasthan 

Rajasthan is the known as the land of kings. When India gained its independence from the British Empire, Rajasthan was formed as one of the states of India. Earlier the area covered by the state was ruled by various princely states.

Rajasthan is known for beautiful Thar Desert, magnificent forts and intricately done havelis (houses and palaces of the rich). It has many places of worship especially the Dilwara temples which are place of pilgrimage for the Jains.

Ajmer Sharif is a place of worship for not only Muslims but people from other religions as well. 
Rajasthan is also home to many sanctuaries such Ranthambore and Sariska. Ranthambore is part of the Tiger Project.

It’s a huge reserve and home to many other animals apart from the tiger. The Bharatpur Sanctuary is a place famous for birds. Birds from Russia and other places migrate here during the winter season. Jaipur is the capital of the state and has many old and fine buildings. The Hawa Mahal (Literally Breeze Palace), City Palace and other historical palaces are known for their tourist value. 

The state of Rajasthan is a border state and shares the international boundary with Pakistan. The Thar Desert and the Aravalli ranges run through the city. Aravalli ranges are the oldest mountain ranges in the world. The Thar Desert is thinly populated. Bikaner is the largest city of Rajasthan. The other major cities of Rajasthan are Jodhpur, Mount Abu, Jaisalmer and Udaipur. The economy of Rajasthan is primarily agragarian. 

Wheat and barley are grown, while cotton and tobacco are cash crops. The wool industry is also very big. Tourism is a major industry. Rajasthan is known for its rich textiles and gems and jewelry, which dates back centuries. The government is trying to make it an industrial hub and cities like Alwar are becoming industrial towns. It also produces cement and is the second largest producer of cement in the country. 

With tourism gaining ground, many of the erstwhile palaces and havelis have been converted into heritage luxury hotels. Prime examples are Devigarh Fort where Liz Hurley got married and also The Udaipur Palace. The cuisine includes both vegetarian and meat dishes.

The people are extremely warm and the women are incredibly beautiful. The best time to visit Rajasthan is during the winter months of November to March. Tourist need to book well in advance as all bookings hotels and destinations are booked well in advance. Transportation and communication services are very good. The cell phones work well even in the border areas. Truly a must visit for all tourists.
