Rural India is extremely simple and hospitable, experience this firsthand and you are sure to make some new friends living in the heart of this vibrant peninsular.
Indian Villagers share use of common village facilities--the village pond (known in India as a tank), grazing grounds, temples and shrines, cremation grounds, schools, sitting spaces under large shade trees, wells, and wastelands. Perhaps equally important, fellow villagers share knowledge of their common origin in a locale and of each other's secrets, often going back generations. Interdependence in rural life provides a sense of unity among residents of a village.


Royal Rajasthan true royalty is in every aspect of Rajasthan. Rajasthan is a land of the Kings and the Queens, the magnificent monuments, fabulous forts, tremendous temples and extraordinary palaces. But there is something more to it and this can be discovered in its deserts, common people, their culture, customs, customs, cuisine and folk tales. Rajasthan tours offer all these and much more. It is truly said that Rajasthan is unique in all the aspects. Its diversity is equally unique.


"We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made!"

 

"If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions, I should point to India"
