Highlights of Rajasthan

The name Rajasthan came from Raj + Sthan , which means the place where Rajput lives. Here "Raj" means rajput caste which literally belongs to this area.This is located in North-West region of India.  

Rajasthan is famous for heritage and culture. It attracts peoples of all around the globe with its rich history and interesting culture.



Peoples choose this state for tourism as there are many things to do here. From Thar deserts to Ranthambore wildlife parks, this state has many uniqueness. From deserts to green grass lands everything is different here.



              If we talk about Northern Rajasthan, its near to Punjab, which rich in agriculture as there are some canals which supplies enough water. Agriculture is good in rajasthan. You can see some agriculture farms and visit some safari's which are easily available in Western part of Rajasthan. One of the safari is machia safari which is a desert safari in Jodhpur.





If you like to know about history then you can know by visiting places like Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur and many other cities too. There are also some holy places in Rajasthan which may attract you if  you are spiritual. There are places like Pushkar in Ajmer, Khwaja Moinuddin chishti Dargah in ajmer, Galta in Jaipur and some other temples like shreenathji, and Ramdevra in Jaisalmer.



Most of the travellers like forts and heritage. Right! I know. Forts and palaces shows how the royal families lived in past. What was the lifestyle of king and how they Ruled. Some of the rulers from Rajasthan were brave and did not accepted to be under someone's rule. Palace's gives a wide view of livings of kings and shows royalty. If you want to know this then you can visit places like City Palace in Udaipur, Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur (also a hotel chain by itc) , City Palace Jaipur and many other too which will definitely going to give you a royal experience.



If You like Adventures then you have options from camel safari in Pushkar (and even horse ride is also available) , Holi festival in pushkar, Brij festival at Bharatpur , and can enjoy some Ropeways in Udaipur and also available in Pushkar. But for joining these festivals you need to checkout calender of these festivals and events as the date is fixed every year by Rajasthan tourism department and other organisations. so make sure to know about this.

Visit to Lal Bagh Palace, Indore


Lal Bagh Palace, Indore

Palace and museum show history, ancient culture, and it also represents the way people lived. A Palace mostly shows luxury lives of those rich and well established families and rulers of that time.

Recently it was a visit to a palace called, Lal Bagh Palace in Indore. Its architecture outside is common, not much attractive from outside like other place's and museum's But Architecture inside the palace is really beautiful.

Side view of the Palace

The palace is sign of Holkar rulers who ruled this region. It was built by Tukoji rao and shivaji rao belongs to holkar dynasty. Its construction started 1844 and end upto 1903 ad.

After taking tickets we headed inside.The palace has big entry gates.  At the entry gate we have to put our mobile and camera, as camera and cellphones are not allowed inside the palace. Its well finished palace and it gives a royal look. Walls are painted with bright colours. after a few footsteps, it was a Dining hall, where one thing i found attractive was paintings at ceilings which was reflecting on a table on the floor. Some paintings depicts royal families portraits and queen which catches eyes of everyone. There are beautiful carvings on the walls which makes it different.

Another view

After this , another thing you will definitely like here is Statue's of tigers which looks like real. The skin of tiger was used to make these. The sharp teeth's and the skin fills it with reality. Though these are enclosed in a glass box for protection. If you are going there with kids, then they will surely like it. Length of the tiger is almost 6 feet or even more.

Then when you will go up stairs, there are some other statues, antiques and different clocks. there were some meeting rooms and guest rooms which shows occasional gatherings of palace.

It takes about an hour maximum to visit the palace. Though there is a garden when you come out of the palace. This garden is filled with trees, and the statues of British rulers can be a good place to take selfie's. Here you can take pictures.

As it was a Sunday, noise of children's playing cricket was encouraging me to play with them, as the palace is next to a ground. Maybe Next time!
