Rajasthan - Land Of Maharaja

Motorcycle tour in Rajasthan, India

Duration: 15 Days
Season: Oct - March
Activity: Motorcycle Tours
Region: Delhi-Agra-Rajasthan
Grade:

Land of Maharajas, jewel of the Indian architectural heritage, and astonishing visual delight, Rajasthan is, by far, the most colourful state of India. Every city, like any other in the world, has its own trait of character. In the land of Maharajas, where the spice route, silk route and Mogul battles took place, some of them can be remarkably distinguished by their colour. While Jaipur, Capital city, and jewel of Rajasthan, was built of pink sandstone, the rarest colour of its kind, Jodhpur, a true mosaic of all shades of blue, had been painted as such to distinguish the homes of Brahmins, its largest population, from others. And while Jaisalmer, as if to blend in the desert of Thar, dressed itself up with the same nuances of yellow, Udaypur, actual oasis, with its majestic palaces, multiple lakes and houses painted in white, is the most elegant and lush city of them all.
