The very thought of Rajasthan flashes through our mind the picture of vibrant people clad in bright coloured attire, riding camels through the sand, exotic palaces and rich architectural heritage dating back to the medival period. The picturesque sight of stretches of golden sand extending to miles is fascinating enough to make a poet out of an ordinary mortal. The magnificiant forts, opulent palaces, exclusively chiseled havelis, each a splendid example of the rich cultural heritage sings the saga of past glory, prosperity and chivalry. In spite of the apparent impression of a dry and desert land, the slate abounds in astonishing range of vegetation and wildlife that makes it a favourite resort for nature lovers. Its a reservoir of a broad biological spectrum ranging from the hilly terrain of Mt. Abu to the heart land of the Thar Desert.
The uniqueness of the land lies in the lingering flavour of medieval times in the rich art and crafts, colourful Bazaars and vibrant people. The sight of camels, oxen, elephants on the road as common modes of transport adds to the medieval touch.
