Rajasthan- the abode of ancient and alluring traditions, will take you on a journey of ecstatic heritage and culture. While the most popular tourism spots are Udaipur, Jodhpur and Jaipur, Rajasthan has much more to offer than these three cities. The majestic Mehrangarh, the royal Amber Fort and the calm Pichola lake are beautiful and deserve all the love they get. However, if you take yourself off the tourist radar, you will discover places that are unknown to many. These places are surreal and perfect if you want to escape from the monotonous tourist thing. You can discover these places yourself by booking all India pilgrimage tour packages and going there. Let us have a look at these places:
Discover The Gems Of Rajasthan:
Well, Bundi is not exactly unheard of and you might have an imaginary picture on the top of your head about it. But, it can be a really difficult task to find the place. Booming with lakes, blue houses, markets, temples at every corner and blue houses, it is no less than a kingdom of your childhood fairy tale. Nobel Laureate Rudyard Kipling wrote a part of his popular novel Kim while he was in Bundi. A part of the story say and we quote
“Jaipur Palace may be called the ‘Versailles of India’. Jodhpur’s House of strife, gray towers on red rock, is the work of giants, but the Palace of Bundi, even in broad daylight, is such a palace as men build for themselves in uneasy dreams – the work of goblins rather than of men.”
The must see places in Bundi are: Kshar Bag, Sukh Mahal, Raniji ki Baori, Lake Hair Sagar, Dabhai Kind and Taragarh Fort.
Barmer is famous for its artistry and craftsmanship which includes pottery, carving of wood, embroidery, ajrak prints and other rich forms of crafts. This town is in Western Rajasthan and approximately at a distance of 153 km from the city of Jaisalmer.
The former name of Barmer was Mallani. The founder and ruler Bahada Rao aka Bar Rao of Parmar gave the current name.
