The word Rajasthan means: ‘place of kings’ because Ahir, Gurjars, Rajputs, Mauryas, Jats etc. have ruled here since ancient times. After independence, the powerful princely states of erstwhile Rajputana merged and this state developed in a democratic manner.
This beautiful state of colourful culture is famous worldwide for its hospitality. Visitors are greeted with traditional tilak and flowers at most places here, and traditional folk songs and folk dances are also presented in hospitality, which signifies the existence of the local culture. The traditional food here (dal baati and churma, gatta ki sabji, keri sangri, lal / white maas, mawa kachori, ghevar, dilkushar, etc.) brings water to the guests’ mouth and they cannot live without eating it.
From the magnificent havelis of Jaipur, to the lakes of Udaipur, from the mosques and temples to Jaisalmer and the sand dunes of Bikaner, everything here is enchanting and historical.
