Its a land of contrast with desert and lakes, gardens and hilly regions which are a pleasure to the eye.

Each city of this magnificent state has still kept alive its rich and vibrant culture which are echoed by the colourful and lively people, festivals and dance and music and the bazaars that are held in the city, also its past glory is experienced through the impressive forts and palaces.

Another exciting experience for a traveller is camel, horse or elephant rides which are very native to this place.
