The country of Rajputs is Rajasthan. Its sky and air are filled with valor and heroism. The way the air is filled with Mirabai's bhajan as well one can hear the tingling sound of the weapons of Ranas in all over Rajasthan. But, now it is history. Rajasthan's one of the main attractions is its palaces and forts. Each one is more beautiful than the other. But today's Rajasthan is more renowned for its sharp intellect in business. Tourists from all over the globe visit the pink city and state's capital Jaipur and lake city Udaipur, the golden fort of Jaisalmer, the marble poetry of Dilwara, Mount Abu, Ranakpur Jain Temple, and Chittorgarh Fort which is strung with valor and heroism. The three hunting grounds of the kings, Sarisaka, Ranthambore, and Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary are also in Rajasthan. Pushkar's world-famous camel fair in October/November every year is situated close to Jaipur.
In the past, small territories with small areas were ruled by the Ranas or the Kings. The Ranas ruled for 1000 years. Due to the basic weakness of friendship, Rajasthan was attacked no of times. It was first attacked by the Muslim King of Ghori and he occupied Ajmer by defeating Prithwiraj Chouhan. Then it was attacked by the Mughals. Emperor Akbar made a family bridge by marrying Ambar's Princess Jodha Bai. Then British came to Rajasthan. They extended a friendship to Rajputs, made them independent, and built Rajputana. Later, they indirectly took over the economic hold of the subcontinent following the Mughal system.
Rajasthan is world famous for its beautiful hand embroidery. For its Kundan and intricately designed golden jewelry, Qatari craft work, brass work, and stone carvings, Rajasthan is very famous. Also attractive are the Rajasthani Bandhni saris, Sanganer's block prints, and shoes of Jodhpur.
Also, Ranas patronized the luxurious princely Palace on Wheels train starts from New Delhi and terminates in Delhi after 7 days of royal splendor. This is a charming palace that moves on rails. The past splendor's unique taste is found in this train. It is decorated in Rajasthani style with luxuries of a 5 Star hotel.
Jaisalmer is the Thar of India means the abode of the dead. In this desert land, there is Jaisalmer and the sand here is golden yellow. The temple, fort, and Palace everything is built of yellow sandstone. During sunrise and sunset, it looks golden. Jaisalmer is also called the Golden Town. Just before the sunset in Jaisalmer the sand dunes that dazzle the whole day turn into golden yellow and pinkish. Mina's work of Jaisalmer is unique and houses, rooms, and balconies attract tourists. Business and commerce flourished in the 17th century, due to the building of trade routes between India and Middle Asia. But slowly the business dwindled up and during the Second World War, the desert roads were blocked. The prosperity of Jaisalmer was reduced. During summers life becomes miserable here. The best time to visit Jaisalmer is from October to March. The temperature during summer goes up to 45 degrees. Here one can enjoy Camel and Jeep Safaris.
Just like each town of Rajasthan, Jaisalmer was also built centering the fort and is surrounded by a wall and second oldest, next to Chittor. Hindu Kshatriya Surya dynasty royal Kings built this Rawak Fort. Eight Jain temples and four Hindu Temples - idols of Gods, dancing statues, and ancient religious scenes are found here. Many precious stones are imbibed with the artistic pattern in the statue of Jain Tirthankara, whose eyes cast a fierce glow. With emeralds is simply a magnificent artistic statue of Shri Mahaveer. Inside the temple, there are numerous stone-made Jain statues. The Parasnathji temple is not as high as the Dilwara temple, its architectural skills are quite impressive. Rishwavnathji, Shantinathji, and Sambhavnathji temples are also noteworthy temples.
Modern Jaisalmer's nother extraordinary attraction is stone work of excellent miniature which is not found anywhere in the world. The rich businessman had also built many wonderful havelis, deploying skilled artists. Patwari Ki Haveli, Nathmalji Ki Haveli, and Sakim Sighji Ki Haveli are extraordinary with lattice carvings. The latticework of the Raja-Ka-Mahal is elegant.
Jaisalmer's other attraction is the 3-day desert festival held on the full moon in February. Different religious sons, dance, and folk music are part of it. With bright royal attires of Rajput tradition, the females and males take part in the procession. The camels also take part in the races and folk dances.
The name Jodhpur has been derived from Baggytight trousers Jodhpuus. In the past, Jodhpur was the Marwar capital of the Rajputs. In Ramayana, Jodhpur is referred to as Northern Marwar. The old caravan route was linked with the Middle East via Jodhpur- Jaisalmer. So, Jodhpur was famous as a business center. The enchantingly beautiful town of Jodhpur is glorious with its ancient historical monuments, which attracts tourists.
The main attraction of Jodhpur is Meherongarh Fort. This fort was built by the Pradhan Rao Jodha who left Mandore and settled here in 1459 AD. Hearsay, the architects of the fort were buried alive to maintain the secrecy of the fort. Even the Mughals could not penetrate or destroy this fort. There was friendship between Jodhpur and the Mughals. Udai Sigh arranged marriage with Akbar and his sister with Jenangir and his daughter. Udai Sigh was given the title, Raja by Akbar. Sher Shah also attacked Meherangarh in search of wealth destroyed the temple of the fort and built a mosque there. After the demise of Aurangzeb, the kingdom was restored by Ajit Singh. On the pyre of Ajit Sigh's dead body, 6 queens and 58 concubines sacrificed their lives.
Another attraction is Umaid Bhawan Palace in Italian style built in pink marble. The majestic palace with a unique interlocking system has 347 rooms. Till now one wing of the palace is occupied by the royal family. Now the Umaid Bhawan Palace Hotel is located in the palace.
Another beauty of Jodhpur is its lakes and ponds. Around the town, there are several lakes. Balsamanda Lake is surrounded by a garden on the way to Mandore Garden.
1219m high in the Aravalli range, covered by peculiarly shaped granite hill and green forest is Abu hill. It is a very beautiful scenic hill station. For architectural wonders of the medieval period, Mt. Abu is very famous. It is exceptional among the other hill stations of India. It was a summer resort of the royal kings in the past.
Dil means temples which means Abu is a place of temples. Mt. Abu's other attraction is, the white marble-made Dilwara covered in mango trees. Dilwara Jain temple consists of Shri Adinath, Neminath, Mahavira, and Rishabh devjis. The breathtaking sights of Dilwara carvings are wonderful. The hearsay is that Goddess Amba proclaimed in the dream about the statue of Parawanath Bhagwan under the Champark tree.
Nakki Lake is in the heart of the town, surrounded by green mountains, this artificial lake, Nakki is located.
The abode of Uday or the city of sunrise is Udaipur. The city of Udaipur has been developed with beautiful lakes, marble palaces, decorated gardens, and ancient temples. There are five palaces - City Palace, Jag Niwas, Jag Mandir, Lakshmivilas, and Monsoon Palace. Each palace is unique in architectural grandeur. In the past, it was the capital of Mewar. The whole atmosphere is filled with the tales of heroism and valor of Rajputs. After being defeated by Akbar, Maharana Uday Singh built the city of the bank of Pichola. After independence, Mewar and Udaipur became part of the Indian Republic. The successors of Rana although lost their kingdom are honored in Rajasthan.
The largest palace of the Udaipur is the city palace which was the winter palace of Maharana. The hearsay is that in 1559 Maharana Udai Singh after getting assurance from Sage Harit that he would be successful in killing his enemies, built this palace. From that time onward, different Maharannas built different mahals in the City Palace, the total number of Mahals is 11.
Jagadish Temple is also a famous temple in Indo-Aryan Nagri style. Here the idol is of the Lord Universe, Vishnu, as Jagannath.
Pichola Lake is to the southwest of the city and it is surrounded by the wall on 3 sides. At the end of the 14 century, covering 10 sq.Kms area artificial Pichola Lake was created. There are some islands and there are many castles and temples. On the moonlit night, the beauty of this place amazes the tourists.
Another island of Pichola, Jagniwas Palace or the summer palace or the summer resort was built by Maharana Jagat Singh II. Among the castles built on water, this castle is unique. The luxurious Lake Palace Hotel is also there. On a moonlight night, it looks as if a ship is floating on the water bed of the lake. On the northern side of Pichola Lake is another artificial lake called the Fateh Sagar. In Fateh Sagar, is the enchanting island Nehru Park, this project was started during the famine, and built in the same way as Vrindaban Gardens.
Nathdwara is the second richest temple in India. In the temple full of beautiful paintings and skillful delicate architectural decorations and made of black granite stone there is an idol of Shri Krishna who is popular as Srinath Ji. It is said that the idol was brought from Mathura to Mewar to save it from the hatred of Aurangzeb.
There is a marble-made white temple complex. It was built in the 8th century, with 108 temples. In pyramid pyramid-shaped decorated temple the enshrined god of Ranas of Mewar is Eklingji with four heads and made of black stone. The western face is of Lord Brahma, the northern one is of Sri Vishnu eastern one is of Sun God and the southern one is of Rudra or Lord Shiva. The door is made of silver and the Nandi is also made of silver besides there are 10-faced Kali, Parvati, Ganesha, and many other idols of Hindu gods and goddesses in these temples.

Apologies for my delayed response in send our
feedback. I have been wanting to say thank you for the
wonderful tour services you provided to us for our
recent trip to Kerala in August 2016 but did not get
around doing it on time. I hope you still remember us
but just in case you don't, my wife and I visited
Trivantrum, Kanyakumary, Kochin, Munnar between 6th to
19th August and you provided us the tour package for
We cannot express enough the gratitude we have for all the assistance that you provided us for our trip to Kerala in August 2016. Both Naveen and Rajiv worked with me pationtly and professionally for quite a while until we were able to get the "right" itinerary. The driver Loganathan was just the right person for our tour. He went above and beyond the call, checking and helpig us in many ways to make sure that our trip was safe, enjoyable and special. All the accommodations (except Leela Palace in Kovalam) and places that you arranged were well chosen and met our expectation. Leela palace is in nice location and good setting but this hotel is overated and over priced and the food was just ordinary. Despite paying their accomodation in advance through you, we ended up paying them extra charge for our stay there. Their reason was "change in Government tariff".
No doubt, we will doing further trips to India (next time to different parts of the country) and we will without any doubt use Vardhaman Vacations. Many thanks for a memorable vacation.
I have given your contact details to another friend of mine Dr Ravi who is planning to visit Delhi soon. Please look after him. He will contact you in the next few days.
Thanks again Jeyanathan
Please see below my review
Thank you once again
Our tour with Vardhman Vacations commenced on the 10th of September with anxiety and excitement. As days passed, we got to know the team who were thoroughly committed to their clients and became part of an extended family. We felt very relaxed and extremely happy that we chose Vardhmans Vacations as our tour planner and provider.
We wouldn’t have enjoyed our 16 days tour without their support and guidance. The hotels chosen by Vardhman’s were excellent and customer forcussed.
Kind regards Chithra

I'm not sure whether you remember me. I booked through
you in 2005 a trekking tour in Ladakh, for me and my
partner Michalis.?? We live in Greece. I was in
contact with you again in 2010 regarding a Rajastan
Tour for my friends. Do you remember??
Anyway, Michalis and myself would like to do a Rajastan tour, for approx. 7 - 10 days in February 2017. We would like to visit Taj Mahal (we missed it several time when we were in Delhi) and the beautiful places in Rajastan, if possible also Mount Abu? Driver and accommodation should also be included. What can you offer?
Thanks in advance and best regards from Crete, Greece
We thank you again for arranging this pleasant program.

This is just a quick note to tell you we have now arrived back home from a fantastic holiday in India. I would like to thank you for all you hard work in organising our wonderful tour Delhi/Agra/Jaipur. Everything was planned and executed wonderfully. Sanjay our driver was fantastic, he was very professional and knew the roads well. Please pass on our special thanks to Sanjay as I always felt perfectly safe him at the wheel. I must not forget to thank our Agra guide Raju. It was good to have a knowledgeable and particularly friendly guide in Agra, he provided a very good guided tour around Taj Mahal.
The quality of the hotel accommodation for the Jaipur Rama is excellent Our only disappointment and complaint would be the first day's hotel (Connaught) in Delhi which was not up to the quality level of the other accommodations. We really want to make an official complaint about the hotel and false advertising as I don’t want any other people to get cheated. However, it all worked out extremely well with help of our Delhi guide Chodi and we are very happy with the hotel, Royal Plaza - the food and service was excellent, beautiful and very comfortable. The hotel in Agra was a little basic but it is okay.
On a positive note, Vardhman Vacations more than exceeded our expectations and we had a memorable time. We will definitely recommend and use your company again!. Thanks for all your work and help.

We wish to thank you for arranging a pleasant 'Tailor made program' to do the Multi city trip during Nov - Dec 2013. The hotel accommodation in each city was congenial except the location of hotel in Bangalore was remote from any shops (small and large) .The driver service at Bombay and Bangalore were commendable. Unfortunately the driver at Aurangabad could not communicate at all in English, but he was quite a friendly young lad.
We thank you again for arranging this pleasant program.
