Royal Rajasthan on Wheels
From the desk of CEO
Jodhpur, a city ringed by a high stone wall with seven gates and several bastions. This
second largest city of Rajasthan
, founded by Rao Jodha in 1459 A.D. is known for its rock-solid
Mehrangarh Fort -
It was founded by RAO Jodha in 1459 when he shifted his capital here from nearby Mandore. There are palaces, housed within this daunting strecture among them are Moti Mahal and Phool Mahal. It is one of the most stunning hill forts of Rajasthan. Mehrangarh appears to rise from the bluff-coloured sandstone hill itself , so well built into the base that it is difficult to tell where the hill ends and the walls begin. Founded in the 15th century by the Rathore Rajputs when they shifted their capital from nearby Mandore to Jodhpur (or the region known as Marwar) Mehrangarh from the outside is impressive, and certainly forbidding. There is a surprising lightness to it though, once actually within the fort.
Umaid Bhawan Palace
Umaid Bhawan Palace that holds one in awe. It is also known as Chhittar Palace because of the particular type of sandstone used to build it - which does not decay in the rains. Portion of the palace have been converted into a hotel and museum.
Constructed out of thin sheets of marble which allow the sun to filter in, was built in the memory of Maharaja Jaswant Singh 11 in 1899.
It is 9 kms of the city, was once the the capital of ancient Marwar and now hosts the cenotaphs built in memory of Maharaja Jaswant Singh and Maharaia Ajit Singh. Crowned with soaring spires, these are embellished with sculptured relifs reflecting the glories of ancient Marwar. Its Hall of Heroes depicting popular Hindu and folk deities is worth a visit. The 16 figures here are carved out of one single rock.
After lunch at a Palace hotel, return to the Palace on Wheels. While in Jodhpur shop for exquisite handcrafted articles including the famous breches, embroidered shoes, metal curious, silverware, paintings and tie and dye fabrics.
'city of lakes’
is perhaps the most romantic and beautiful cities of India. In contrast to Its desert neighborhoods it stands out with an enchanting image of white marble palaces, placid blue lakes, gardens and temples surrounded by hills and mountains. It was founded by Maharaja Udai Singh in 1559 AD on the shores of
. The most striking landmarks of the city are City palace and Lake Palace. It developed scientifically; the old city was surrounded by fortified bastions with entry through 11 gates. Ruins of these fortifications are still there, and the more recent palaces can be visited. In fact, a number of the former royal homes are now excellent hotels, allowing you a glimpse into Rajasthan's princely life with all its attendant splendors.
Udaipur is known for its fairytale palaces that nestle along the banks of a lake, or completely cover islands in its midst. The Sisodia rulers of Chittaurgarh who ruled here obviously had more leisure to exercise their taste than at Chittaur where much of their time was spent at war. It situated on the edge of three lakes, its narrow streets lined with shops and craftsmen's ateliers encourage hours of window- shipping for tourists. Udaipur stands out for its heritage, crafts and performing arts and its school of miniature painting is noteworthy.

Life, in every form and mood, has been captured in stone, testifying not only to the craftsman's artistry but also to the extraordinary breadth of vision of the Chandela Rajputs under whose rule the temples were conceived and constructed.

The deserted red sandstone city that was built by Emperor Akbar as his capital. Ponder the mysterious desertion of this capital city that was dramatically abandoned a few years after it was built. It was a veritable fairy tale city and its 'ruins' are still in a pristine condition. It is not hard to imagine what the court life must have been like in the days of its grandeur of Shah Jehan, mastermind of the unforgettable Taj Mahal.
Built by the great Emperor Akbar in 1565 A.D., the fort is a masterpiece of design and construction. Within the fort are a number of exquisite buildings, including the
Moti Masjid, Diwane-I-Am, Diwane-I-Khas and Musamman Burj

Enjoy the Magnificent
Taj Mahal – The Monument of Love
in the warm glow of Sunset, which was built in 1630 by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a tomb for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1631, and is believed to have taken 18 years to complete, with over 20,000 craftsmen working around the clock. The design and construction is said to be that of the legendary architect, Ustad Ahamad Lahori. Legend has it that once construction was completed, Shah Jehan had Lahori's hands cut off, and blinded, so he would never be able to duplicate the structure. What makes the Taj Mahal unique is its perfect proportions, distinct femininity, medium of construction and ornamentation. Its marble exterior reflects rose and golden tints at sunrise and sunset, while it is dazzling white during the day. It is impossible to visualize the Taj Mahal in any surrounding others than its paradoxical garden. Paradise, in Islam, is visualized as a lush garden where running streams flow. When the Mughal brought this concept to India they elevated it to heights of Incomparable artistry.
As you drive through the city witness the local life and bazaars (markets) and the hustle bustle of everyday India, Agra is famous for Marble Items, overnight stay at Agra.
