Rajasthan is one of the most interesting and most visited states in India. Rajasthan means “Land of the Kings.” It is the home of the Rajputs, the warrior class who were famous for fighting to the death against all odds.
Rajasthan is for the most part a big desert with no shortage of camels and interesting people. In the northwest there is the Thar desert, which until you get past Jaisalmer, is mainly dry land that is full of shrub.
There are some excellent places to visit in Rajasthan, including great forts and palaces. Jaisalmer, in the extreme west of Rajasthan, has a romantic, medieval fort built on top of a hill. Jodhpur has a dramatic fort on top of high hill overlooking the city, with a beautiful palace inside.
