Rajasthan, the land of kings erstwhile Rajputana is a place where great warrior races of India dwelt. Col James Todd in his book Annals & Antiquities writes “there is not a petty State in Rajasthan that has not had its Thermopylae, and scarcely a city that had not produced its Leonidas“. The magnificent forts and palaces are the living proofs of their magnificence, gallantry, traditions and cultural extravaganza. The generation till date follow these age old traditions and have maintained them in all the possible glory.
Rajasthan is not only about its great heritage, it is also a place which is most varied in respect of landscapes from oldest mountain range of Aravali to Thar desert, seasonal rivers to perennial rivers, dense forests to Inland salt water lake, a home to vast variety of wild life, bird sanctuaries to Tiger reserves the list does not come to an end.
