Udaipur, Rajasthan

Legend has it that the Sisodias of Mewar are descended from the Sun God through Luv, the son of Lord Rama whose life story is told in India’s great epic, the Ramayana. The chronicles of the bards tell us that in the 6th century, Vallabhi was sacked by strangers from the west. Pushpavati, the queen of Vallabhi, who was on a pilgrimage offering prayers for her unborn child, heard of the destruction of Vallabhi and the death of her husband while travelling through the Aravalli hills in the north. Despairing, she took refuge in a cave, and there gave birth to a son whom she called Guhil or ‘cave born’. Then, entrusting her child to a maid servant, the queen ordered a funeral pyre to be lit, and walked into it to join her dead husband’s soul. Guhil or Guhaditya, was befriended by the Bhils, the Adivasis, who had lived in the Aravalli hills since well before 2,000 BC. Among the Bhils, Guhaditya, grew in power and became a chieftain. His progeny came to be known as Guhilots. The descendants of Guhaditya were the great Ranas, Rawals and Maharanas of Mewar, the builders of forts and palaces. When the original capital of Mewar, Chittaurgarh was sacked for the third time by the armies of the Mughal emporer Akbar; Rana Udai Singh II withdrew into hills and ravines of the Aravallis. He saw a sage meditating by a lake and received his blessings and directions that this spot was an auspicious site for his new capital. The city was thus founded on the banks of Lake Pichola in mid-16th century. By the time of India’s independence, the royal Mewar had ruled for 75 generations, a total of 1,400 years, the oldest of Rajasthan’s feudal dynasties.

Agra, Uttar Pradesh

Modern Agra was founded by Sikandar Lodhi in 16th century with contribution of numerous rulers to the rich past of this city. Tip: Avoid visiting during summers. Famous for its petha and dalmoth.

Ajmer, Rajasthan

The name ‘Ajmer’ is a modification of its earlier name ‘Ajayameru’, which means the invincible hill. This was the place for hill fort ‘Taragarh’, which was built by Ajay Pal Chauhan. The city of Ajmer is perhaps the perfect example of the unity that prevails in the diversity of the country. Founded by a Hindu, Raja Ajay Pal Chauhan, in the early 7th century, it houses the Dargah Sharif-tomb of Sufi Saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti. Today, the shrine, which is equally revered by Muslims and Hindus, attracts pilgrims from all over the world.

Barmer, Rajasthan

 In earlier times, the district was known by the name "Mallinath" (मल्लिनाथ). Mallinath was the son of Rao Salkha and Mallinath is a God who is still worshiped by Rajputs. The whole area around the river "Luni" was said to have "Malani" or "मलानी", derived from the name Mallinath. In the 18th century the name "Barmer" or "Balmer" was adopted by the British rulers of India and is derived from the name of the earlier 13th century ruler Bahada Rao Parmar (Panwar) or Bar Rao Parmar (Panwar), it was named Bahadamer ("The Hill Fort of Bahada").

Bhilwara, Rajasthan

It is not on the record as how the name of Bhilwara was ascribed to the which now forms the district Bhilwara. Tradition has it that it came to be known as Bhilwara because it was mostly inhabited by Bhils in old days. These Bhils were eventually driven away towards the hilly tracts and interior places of less importance by the ancestors of the peasant settlers. Ironically enough ,now very few Bhils live in this area. Another version recounts that the present Bhilwara city had a mint where coins known as 'BHILADI' were minted and from this denomination was derived the name of the district. Over the years it has emerged out as the TEXTILE CITY of Rajasthan. Now a days ,Bhilwara is better known as the textile city in the country.

Bikaner

Bikaner

Bikaner stands on a slightly raised ground and is circumscribed by a seven km long embattled wall with five gates. The magnificent forts and palaces, created with delicacy in reddish-pink sandstone, bear testimony to its rich historical and architectural legacy. Surging lanes, colourful bazaars with bright and cheerful folks make Bikaner an interesting experience. Bikaner still retains the medieval grandeur that permeates the city's lifestyle. More readily called the camel country, the city is distinguished for the best riding camels in the world and hence boasts of having one of the largest Camel Research and Breeding farms in the world. Modern Bikaner is the result of the foresight of its most eminent ruler Maharaja Ganga Singh (1887-1943) whose reformative zeal set the pace for Bikaner transformation from a principality to a premier princely state.

Ranthambhore

Situated at the junction of the Aravalli and the Vindhya ranges, Ranthambhore has been one of India’s conservation success stories. Since becoming one of the original areas under Project Tiger in 1973, the park has maintained much of its natural glory. A 10th century fort, called Ranthambhore commanded a large area and until the late 13th century was the centre of a Hindu kingdom. During the 18th century, the area was protected as a hunting area for and by the Maharajas of Jaipur. The fort is the natural focal point of the park with a series of well established artificial lakes stretching to the north. The rugged park terrain alternates between dry deciduous forest, open grassy meadow, dotted by several lakes and rivers that are only made passable by rough roads built and maintained by the Forest Department. The major predator here is the tiger, but their territories overlap with those of the leopard, which are occasionally seen in the areas on the park periphery. A variety of birds including owls, langur (monkey), leopard, caracal, hyena, jackal, jungle cat, marsh crocodiles, wild boar, bears and various species of deer are also found in the park. The greater visibility of this magnificent animal, due to the careful management, has made the park well known as one of the easiest parks to spot and photograph tigers.
