Rajasthan

Rajasthan, the largest of India’s 28 states and known as “The Land of Kings”. Until 1947 the state was known as Rajputana and divided into smaller states, ruled by kings and princes. The backbone of Rajasthan is Aravali Mountain Range, which lies between the fertile Dhundar Basin and the huge Thar Desert, one of the driest places on earth and stretching to the Pakistan border.This state is full of history, palaces, forts and grandeur and attracts many tourists, but it is also a very poor state with low literacy rates and often suffering from droughts.India truly is a land of contrast.
