Rajasthan is a land of ornate architecture,
decorative palaces, wide expanses of water and summer palaces
on islands. The fortresses are steeped in memories: women who
preferred mass suicide rather than fall into the hands of the
enemy. Warrior clans are bound by inviolable codes of honour
and chivalry; the Rajput pride and chivalry are a part of folklore.
In Jaipur, is the enchanting Hawa Mahal or Palace of Winds,
tier upon tier of curved arch surmounting fairy casements with
ornamental screens. The imposing gate of the City Palace is
guarded by stone elephants. At the entrance of the palace, stands
the Jantar Mantar, the largest and best preserved observatories
built by Maharaja Jaisingh. The Rambagh Palace once a royal
home is now a fabulous hotel. Pushkar, site of the biggest cattle
fair in Rajasthan, is a brief 14 km from Ajmer. Chittorgarh
fort is remembered for its association with the saint princess
Mirabai and Padmini's Palace a pavilion where Alauddin Khilji
saw the glimpse of the princess. Rana Kumbha's Vijai Stumbh
stands in memory of a solitary victory. The Sawai Madhopur forest
retreat and the Ranthanhor sanctuary are major tourist attractions.
