This tour concentrates on the era of the Kings (Rajas) of Rajasthan, their history, their legends and their architectural triumphs.
The mighty Maharajas (Kings of Kings) of Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodphur and Bikaneer constructed immense palaces where each of the hundreds of rooms were dedicated to different purposes - for dance, theatre, summer, winter, or romance, to name just a few examples. They paid great care and attention to the aesthetics of these sprawling constructions, using ornate tiling, opulent murals, intricate metal and stone work - all speaking of their great status. Many of the raw materials used to construct these palaces were brought in from all over the world: from Europe and Asia. Precious and semi precious gems were used abundantly. The more detail, the more luxury! The Maharajas would live in their palaces with their wives, concubines (who could number into the hundreds), musicians and entertainers for many generations.
Some of these forts and palaces have been converted into luxury hotels where you will stay, giving you the opportunity to experience the bygone era of the Maharajas.
