Colours of Rajasthan

India is a country of festivals, fairs and symbolic colours. Pink colour is a happy and hopeful colour connected with Ganesha who has a pink elephant head. The most striking feature of Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, is the pink wash applied to the buildings, giving Jaipur its unique name, the ‘Pink City’.Jaipur is one of the most colourful and vibrant cities in India. The city abounds in historical and cultural sites. We are taking you to one of the most striking sites such as the Amber Fort, the Palace of Winds, known as Hawa Mahal, and the magnificent City Palace with its exquisite colours and paintings.

You’ll also discover the wonders and treasures of Delhi, the capital of India. There is no city in India with as long history as Delhi. Delhi itself is a history, and its monuments are just pages of a book where the history is written. Delhi is a home to many famous temples, mosques, churches, museums, forts, towers and market places. It is also well known for its amazing gardens and parks. We have prepared a special and exciting tour for you. A visit to the jewel of Agra, the ultimate requiem of love, from a great Mughal Emperor to his beloved – the magnificent Taj Mahal. The words are not enough. You must experience it.You’ll visit the attractive ‘Blue City’, the second largest city in Rajasthan – Jodhpur.
