It is the largest state of the country and is well known for Rajasthan tourism. If we divide the word ‘Rajasthan’ into ‘Raj’ and ‘Sthan’, it turns out to be ‘Land of Kings’. It has the Thar Desert which is very vast. Thar Desert is also named as the ‘Rajasthan Desert’ and ‘Great Indian Desert’. It shares a border with five more Indian states and Pakistani Provinces of Punjab. It is located in the northwest part of India. Rajasthan is home to Indus Valley Civilization. It is as old as Egypt and Mesopotamian. The ruins of civilization are still kept with great care. It signifies the foundation of the systematic development of Rajasthan and the achievements of their rulers. In fact, the management of these tourist spots also points out in the same direction of well-developed civilization. In the Rajasthan tour packages, we get to visit the largest city and the capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur also. It was involved in India officially after 2 years of independence in 1949.
The major cities in Rajasthan holiday packages from Delhi are Jaipur, Jodhpur, Ajmer, Pushkar, Kota, Udaipur, Jaisalmer, Mount Abu, Ranthambore, Sawai Madhopur, Bharatpur and Bikaner.
