The Not So Typical Rajasthan!


Its definitely not that typical sight of Rajasthan! Laxman Sagar is quite a place if you love nature and want to spend some alone time. Just 12 cozy and private mud-and-stone cottages structured amongst 32 acres of rocky hills, surrounding a lake so discreetly that they merge into the badlands beautifully. Its just about relaxing and unwinding.

The silence and hearing the wind rustling is a much needed change for the city dwellers. The place is originally 19th-century hunting lodges converted into an intimate eco retreat.

Mehrangarh Fort stands a marvelous hundred feet in splendor on a perpendicular cliff, four hundred feet above the sky line of Jodhpur. Burnished red sand stone, imposing, invincible and yet with a strange haunting beauty that beckons .


Much has been written about the Citadel of the Sun, for truly, it is one of the most impressive in all Rajasthan.

So colossal are its proportions that Rudyard Kipling called it “ the work of giants”.

Umaid Bhawan Palace is a magnificent piece of Rajasthan’s heritage, and a symbol of new Jodhpur. There is royalty in every bit of this place and you are served with just the right etiquettes and mannerism. It surely comes for a price too!

 The curse of the abandoned village of Kuldhara in Jaisalmer seems to prevail and the legend makes more sense as you wade through the barren ruins.

The silence is eerie and a chill runs down the spine imagining what may have happened when the whole village marooned away one night.


Not a human in sight and looking at this view in twilight, makes you wonder how such mysterious things happened back then.

We travelled out wide and far carrying our camera in our favourite Blackforest bag and it couldn't have been more fun!
