Rajasthan is literally the Land of the Kings. It is home to the chivalrous Rajputs, and its battle-scarred heritage has bestowed legacies of pride and tradition. The upper echelons of this medieval society built magnificent palaces and forts. In addition, stunning handicrafts and fine arts were developed and nurtured through patronage of the maharajas. Village life remains steeped in tradition but, just like the rest of India, the pace of change is ever accelerating. Turbaned men still barter for decorated camels – they just relay the successful deal home via a smart phone. The colours of this region are impossible to ignore and the effect of emerald green, canary yellow and fire-engine red turbans and saris is simply dazzling. The lucky might even see a flash of orange while tiger-spotting in Ranthambhore National Park. Easier to collect are the bright hues of Rajasthan's many festivals, from brightly decorated mounts at the camel and elephant festivals in Pushkar and Jaipur respectively, to the colourful explosions of Diwali and Holi, celebrated across the region.
