Rajasthan travel guide

Historic Sites · Architectural Buildings · Sacred & Religious Sites
Land of Kings
One of the jewels in India's crown, Rajasthan is probably at its most appealing when seen from the berth of an express train. An epic railway journey across India's largest state reveals sleepy villages frozen in time many centuries ago, ancient fortresses and temples with commanding views over the surrounding landscape, and giant cities teeming with life, noise, heat, color, and spice. To see as much as you can during your trip to Rajasthan, explore the famous Golden Triangle, which includes the cities of Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra, home of the Taj Mahal. Other notable destinations worthy of a well-rounded Rajasthan itinerary include Bikaner, famed for its sweets, and Udaipur, known for its lakes and romantic backdrops.

Punjab travel guide

Sacred & Religious Sites · Performances · Gardens
A region of five rivers rich in history and diverse in tradition, Punjab offers everything from Indus Valley archaeological sites to modern, French-designed city architecture and sports festivals. Tourism in Punjab revolves around heritage walks, battle sites, and great Sikh architecture, such as holy shrines, royal Punjabi palaces, and ancient forts. A highlight of any Punjab itinerary, the daily ceremonial lowering of the flag at the border with Pakistan reminds those who watch it of the awkward political divide in the region. Spread out over an alluvial plane with many rivers, and enjoying a subtropical climate, Punjab is dotted with traditional agricultural towns, many of which sit just a stone's throw from ancient Buddhist and Hindu archeological sites. Punjabi cuisine includes regional twists on several Indian classics, including samosas, butter chicken, and tandoori chicken.
