When you travel to the Incredible Rajasthan, compare your imagination with the reality of this desert. All you will be left to believe is “Truth is stranger than fiction”. And the truth is that the enchanting Rajasthan vibrates with passion and liveliness and it clearly manifests in its culture, heritage, fairs and festivals, cuisine, music and dance, fabulous monuments, royal havelis and stunning palaces which the invincible people of Rajasthan created out of very limited resources to overcome the barrenness of the Great Indian Desert Thar.
