In Photos: Colours of Rajasthan

The makers of the modern day Rajasthan seem to have dipped their brush in a huge palette and called their cities Blue City, Pink City and Gold City.

The Pink City, Jaipur offers an easy and cheap getaway from Delhi. There’s plenty to do and see here, so just look around the splendid forts and architecture and go shopping to local markets to see the traditional Rajasthan.

It was the week before New Year 2016 and all the local men and women visited the shopping markets of Jaipur, Ajmer and Pushkar. While they looked in awe at the foreign tourists, the latter was equally smitten by them, especially the colours. Take a look below!

Famous for the camels and various kinds of shakes available, Pushkar offers a host of activities and experiences at rates that’ll make your head spin. Whether it’s lodging, food, camel rides or some good ol’ bhaang lassi, Pushkar is there to sort you out with a bargain. We stayed in the Hotel Vega Inn at Ajmer and booked a taxi to visit Pushkar. The Hotel was excellent and their staff was very friendly, helpful and guided us to find good places to eat and drink. You can book the hotel on www.goibibo.com with some great offers.  We got free breakfast and few complimentary drinks each day we stayed.
