Padharo Maare Desh!

The land of kings, unmatched palaces, pink city, golden sunsets, colourful markets and daal baati churma makes Rajasthan a “I am dying to visit this place” type. Rajasthan is a land of sand dunes, safari’s and lots of traditional shopping. People singing traditional folk songs in the middle of your sand safari, the pushkar festival making you go crazy with its offerings and undoubtedly, the food.

The Flapper Life lists 5 things that will make you want to pack your bags and say – Kamhaghani Rajasthan.

Markets of Rajasthan.

Colourful. Vibrant. Traditional. Right from the beautiful Rajasthani kadas to mojris and dupattas. Traditional spices that will give you the experience of your life makes these markets, one of a kind. Some of the best shopping happens in Bada Bazaar and Johari Bazaar. If you have the skills to bargain, you will find your hands over occupied with loads of shopping bags. Everything in this market has its own charm and aesthetics.

Forts of Rajasthan.

Gigantic. Every fort in Rajasthan is different from the previous one. There is no other state in India but Rajasthan that is land to these many forts and palaces. The Chittagor Fort, the Umaid Bavan Palace and the Jaisalmer fort are a must visit. The stories you must have heard growing up of kings and princes and historical fights and victories, these forts are legends. Make sure you don’t get lost in there.

 Culture of Rajasthan

The culture of Rajasthan has its own character and hustle. Right from the folk dance where even non dancers tap dance on the tune of Rangilo Marro Dholhna, to folk singers who add a treat of our ear buds. From the kite flying festivals, to the pushkar mela, Teej festival and Puppet dance, the culture of Rajasthan goes from north to south in no time, being the largest state, it is large in hospitality and traditions.

Food of Rajasthan.

There is no sincerer love than the love of food.”– George Bernard Shaw.Khana acha hona chahiye bas, Rajasthan will take care of it. It is the best cuisine for vegetarians and people with a sweet tooth. Some of the famous names include Laal Maas, Daal Bati Churma, Mohan maas and pyaaz ki kachori. Now that your food is sorted, book the tickets.

People of Rajasthan

Ever smiling, warm and approachable. Another trait of Rajasthan. Most people believe in ‘Athiti Devo Bhava’. These people are traditionally down to earth and extremely simple people. Another reason to love Rajasthanis.
