Highlights of Rajasthan

The name Rajasthan came from Raj + Sthan , which means the place where Rajput lives. Here “Raj” means rajput caste which literally belongs to this area.This is located in North-West region of India.  

Rajasthan is famous for heritage and culture. It attracts peoples of all around the globe with its rich history and interesting culture.

Peoples choose this state for tourism as there are many things to do here. From Thar deserts to Ranthambore wildlife parks, this state has many uniqueness. From deserts to green grass lands everything is different here.

              If we talk about Northern Rajasthan, its near to Punjab, which rich in agriculture as there are some canals which supplies enough water. Agriculture is good in rajasthan. You can see some agriculture farms and visit some safari’s which are easily available in Western part of Rajasthan. One of the safari is machia safari which is a desert safari in Jodhpur.

If you like to know about history then you can know by visiting places like Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur and many other cities too. There are also some holy places in Rajasthan which may attract you if  you are spiritual. There are places like Pushkar in Ajmer, Khwaja Moinuddin chishti Dargah in ajmer, Galta in Jaipur and some other temples like shreenathji, and Ramdevra in Jaisalmer.

Most of the travellers like forts and heritage. Right! I know. Forts and palaces shows how the royal families lived in past. What was the lifestyle of king and how they Ruled. Some of the rulers from Rajasthan were brave and did not accepted to be under someone’s rule. Palace’s gives a wide view of livings of kings and shows royalty. If you want to know this then you can visit places like City Palace in Udaipur, Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur (also a hotel chain by itc) , City Palace Jaipur and many other too which will definitely going to give you a royal experience.

If You like Adventures then you have options from camel safari in Pushkar (and even horse ride is also available) , Holi festival in pushkar, Brij festival at Bharatpur , and can enjoy some Ropeways in Udaipur and also available in Pushkar. But for joining these festivals you need to checkout calender of these festivals and events as the date is fixed every year by Rajasthan tourism department and other organisations. so make sure to know about this.

I think this post gives highlights of Rajasthan and give you some inspiration to know about these places, festivals and enlighten some spirituality.

Please give me valuable feedback’s. It will be appreciated. It will be great if you share this post with your friends and colleagues so they can know about Rajasthan and get some useful information.

Zoo is one of the best places to visit in the city. In Indore City, Name of the zoo is “Kamla Nehru Prani Sangrahalaya“, which is a good place to visit.

This is almost near to the city centre where you can reach easily. There are many kind of animals and birds in this zoo. When you see beautiful and colourful birds, it makes your day. If you are an animal lover then this is nice place to visit.

Personal Experiences : 

It was a Sunday evening. the day was a bit rainy but at the time we headed to destination, weather was clear. At first we took tickets, which were about 30 rupees per head i think. At entrance of this zoo there is a big gate with statues of animals of this zoo, which i found attractive for tourists.

At first there, You will see a red coloured parrot which you will definitely like very much. I like birds specially but if that’s about a coloured bird, we all are crazy for those colours. Right!

 After few minutes raining started. As it was evening so weather became a bit cold. Though we continued this. Then you see some black bucks. These are one of the best things. Its black long horns make it more beautiful. In some parts of Rajasthan, Black bucks are worshipped by a particular religion. Why not! indeed they deserve.

Now after black bucks its turn for the biggest animal of Jungle. Its an Elephant. There were around 6-7 elephants at the zoo. all are Asian elephants. A natural atmosphere is given to these animals which is praiseworthy. This place is also good for kids as many of the animals and birds are new for them.

After few minutes we were a bit tired as its a big zoo with many species including birds and animal kingdom. Now you see a peacock sharing his space with parrots. isn’t it cool! This picture shows, like humans these birds also share their space with others. White feathers of this peacock is really very attractive.

Then the next one comes, White peacock. This is the best thing here in this zoo which i like most. I saw colourful peacocks many times, but white is unique and you can’t find it everywhere. Even in most zoo its not found. These are called “White Pea foul”. Indian Peafowl are common and these are also in abundance till now.
