This state of India contains the princely monuments of the medieval times. Various palaces, tombs, forts, etc can fill your days. This state shares a border with the neighbouring country of Pakistan. The border is mostly a desert. This is the Thar Desert of India. It is arid but worth seeing. The rest of Rajasthan is semi-arid. It's extremely hot during the day and very cold at night. The best time to visit Rajasthan is during the winter season because the climate is more suitable to tourists.

The people of Rajasthan are really nice. They are also very cultural. In India, Culture is one of the top priorities.

If you go to Rajasthan, be sure to visit the sand dunes of the Sum desert. The sunset is also beautiful. Riding on a camel is also really cool.

Don't miss any of the famous Rajasthani puppet shows. There are dances and all sorts of performances.
