The Palace of Jaipur is a complex of monumental palaces that represent the heart of the capital of the Rajasthan State. This place was the seat of the Maharaja of Jaipur, the head of the Kachwaha clan Rajput. Here you can visit the museum housed in the Chandra Mahal Palace.

And gardens that characterize the architecture of this part of India … are you ready to immerse yourself in a fairytale?
In particular, you can not miss Hawa Mahal, a refined sandstone building, also known as “dei venti” or “Della Vento”. Its name derives from the fact that its high facade was built so that the women of the royal family could observe street parties without being seen from the outside. Today, on the contrary, it will be its extreme beauty to capture your curiosity.
Jaisalmer is one of the most beautiful cities to visit in India: it emerges in the Thar Desert as a mirage.

And enchanting, just like the Roman phrases that you will exchange during the visit.

What Ranakpur, in particular, is considered among the most important temples Jains throughout India: its main structure in white marble – made up of 29 rooms and 1444 columns finely carved with decorations different from one another – it really fabulous.
One of the most interesting places in Rajasthan is Pushkar, a lake considered sacred by the Hindu religion since ancient times. It is a very popular pilgrimage destination, especially because of the legend that hovers around its name. According to tradition, in fact, a lotus flower fell from the hand of Brahma – creator deity of all worlds and first existing being – while he was absorbed in meditation. And from the petals of the flower gushed the water that gave rise to the lake of Pushkar.
