I love to travel. I live to travel. I earn for basic necessities of life and besides that my only passion is to cover as much of the world as I can before life takes the mojo out of me. I have traveled to many countries and many destinations in India. One of the most fascinating journeys was the trip to Rajasthan – deservingly known as the Land of Kings. Rajasthan is a huge state in the north west of India. It has a harsh climate and a large percentage of barren land hence you have to choose carefully the time to visit. The season from November to March is the best time to visit as its pretty cool and chilly – with the afternoons being less scorching. Also, the food tastes better in winter as quite spicy. We visited Rajasthan in December 2016 with Dya, Pishi, Ramesh and Dya’s parents (Abu and Sho). I will describe the trip in fewer words and more pictures to enable you to experience the beauty of the place.
Our trip began from Jaipur. In Jaipur we visited the grand fort of Amer. I won’t spend time describing the details of the fort but interested people can find it here
We also visited the Jantar Mantar in Jaipur. It hosts nineteen architectural astronomical instruments. More details here.
Next we visited the Dargah Sharef in Ajmer, a holy place for Muslims and also people of other religions. It was pretty crowded but the visit was worth it.
Next stop was the town of Pushkar where we saw the Brahma Temple. There are very few Brahma Temples in the world – Brahma is a Hindu God often known as the creator. The deity photographs are not allowed – however I captured this beautiful lake in my camera for the memories.
Next halt was Jodhpur. We visited the Umaid Bhawan Palace and Museum.
Then we saw the mighty Mehrangarh Fort. The sight will make you wonder how they built this structure in the 1600’s.
That was about Jaipur and Jodhpur – two of the most popular cities of Rajasthan, and Ajmer and Pushkar – where we did not stay over but only visited the places of interest. Next we headed off to the lesser known places which are even more scenic and beautiful. I will cover the remaining part of the trip in the next post i.e. tomorrow’s post. Do post your comments and ask me if you have any doubts about the place in case you wish to travel there. I will try to help the best I can – don’t worry, its free 🙂
That’s all for today.
