India’s rich royal heritage of opulent palaces and extravagant maharajas is evident throughout the land. Visit the magnificent Taj Mahal at sunrise, the beautiful forts and palaces found in the state of Rajasthan and marvel at the spectacular reminders of its colourful royal past. Jaipur is a favourite among travellers with its many forts and palaces gracing hilltops and framing the teeming city streets. This walled city harks back to the glorious past of the maharajas with its majestic monuments, manicured parks and ancient, medieval style bazaars. Ranthambore National Park contains many overgrown remnants of the temples and summer palaces from times gone by, as well as offering guest a chance to experience a rare glimpse of the Bengal Tiger. The city of Jodhpur boasts the spectacular Meherangarh Fort that lies at the base of a sheer rocky cliff and presides over the aptly named Blue City. Udaipur, known as the city of lakes, is adorned with exquisite gardens and marble palaces in the middle of lakes. If you’re looking for a taste of the Royal lifestyle on your trip to India, Timeless India Journeys will make you feel like a Maharaja.
