Jodhpur

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.

Jaswant Thada

Udaipur is known for its fairytale palaces that nestle along the banks of a lake, or completely cover islands in its midst.

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.

The first stop of the Palace-on-Wheels is Jaipur, one of the most well planned cities of the world of its time. Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II founded this capital city of Rajasthan, popularly known as the Pink City, in 1727 A.D.

To explore the city, an air-conditioned coach takes you to Hawa Mahal or the Palace of Winds, which is a remarkable five storeyed building along the main street of the old city in pink splendour with semi-octagonal and delicate honey, combed sandstone windows.

For more than two thousand years, people have been coming from different states of India to Varanasi with their cultural heritage & lineage. This amalgamation of Oriental cultures and life styles of west made this colossal city a panorama.

Fatehpur SikriThe 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.

Agra FortBuilt 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, where the Emperor Shah Jahan died in imprisonment, besides Jahangir’s Palace, Khaas Mahal and the Sheesh 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.
