A holiday can be the best way to distress yourselves. Taking time off from your job is turning out to be more difficult with each passing day. It is only natural that you would like to spend time with you family and loved ones and the best way to do so is to take a long holiday where you could be amidst nature, enjoying the rejuvenating essence of nature or you could be walking down memory lane. By walking down memory lane i mean turning the pages of your history book once again. Remember those times when we were awestruck about one king or “Maharaja” was able to run half the country all alone? Or when the same king was able to battle against 3 or 4 provinces at the same time and win? How we all wanted to visit those places and see whether the marks of battle were still there? That can be made possible in no time. All you have to do is plan a trip to the desert state of India: RAJASTHAN.
Rajasthan is situated in the northwest of India. The moment you set foot in it, the Rajput heritage will welcome you with open arms. The beautiful forts, temples and palaces are bound to spellbind you as soon as you see them.
