Rajasthan was at the forefront of Indian culture and lived through the reign of the kings, gaining the moniker “the land of kings.”Rajasthan boasts an amazing collection of art and architecture as a result of its past as a royal state. 

Top 10 Tourist Attractions of Rajasthan

1. Jaipur

Its founder, Maharaja Jai Singh II (1693–1744), was a renowned warrior and astronomer who gave the city its name, Jaipur. When his father, Maharaja Bishan Singh, died when he was two years old, he ascended to the kingdom. The maharaja made the decision to ensure Jai Singh had a top-notch education after learning that his son would succeed.

Because every structure in the neighbourhood is made of the distinctive, pink-painted sandstone, the area is known as Pink City.

The colourful culture of Jaipur is well known. The people there are known for being friendly and polite. Pink City Jaipur takes great pleasure in accessorising with vibrant clothing and finely designed jewels.

Folk Dancing and Music are among the city’s other well-liked attractions. The audiences are treated to visual pleasures during Ghoomar, where ladies dance while donning flowing, colorful Ghagharas, and Chari, where dancers hold pots with lit diyas on their heads.
