Rajasthan or “Land of Kings” when translated in English is India’s largest state in terms of land area. A region once ruled by kings with remnants of palaces and forts that remind you of its imperial history. Having a vast assortment of restored heritage hotels brings an exotic experience of modern and traditional feel.
