A Glimpse into Royal Lifestyle, History & Culture

"Padharo Mharo Des” i.e. Welcome to our Land! – is the welcome tagline of Rajasthan.

Rajasthan is a complete package of history, culture, colours, rural life, forts, palaces & havelis – many of them are converted into luxury and heritage hotels or home stays.  The care and pampering from natives gives you a feeling of being king / queen for the day!

The warmth of hospitality is going to touch your heart more so in rural area, where you get a chance to mingle with grass root people

Thousands of tales on royal families, hear it from horse's mouth, by having an opportunity to stay with them, which takes you back to an era gone by.
