Culture and Colors of Rajasthan - Palaces, Fortresses and the Taj Mahal

Rajasthan is still the dream India of your imagination-where you feel transported back in time to a romantic, turbulent era of turbaned warrior-princes, martial valor, and cloistered harems. Before India's independence, it consisted of 18 princely states and some of the oldest monarchies in India (and perhaps the world). The turbaned rajas and maharajas of this land had a long tradition of martial valor, and Rajasthan is still dotted with palaces and fortresses that are reminders of that romantic, turbulent era. On our exploration of northern India we'll visit the key Rajasthani sites: Udaipur, a city of lakes and known as the "Venice of the East"; the traditional pink- and golden-hued desert stronghold Jaipur, including its famous Amber Palace; the bazaars, temples, and palaces of Jodhpur; the exquisite "ghost town" of Fatehpur Sikri; and Agra, known the world over as the city of the Taj Mahal. And in princely style, we'll stay in maharajas' palaces now converted into amazing hotels!
