Essential Information About Rajasthan
Here's some important information as recommended by Lakhs of our travelers
Known as a cultural and architectural hub, Rajasthan is also a food lover’s delight due to its delectable cuisine. Rajasthani food is famous all over the country and any holiday tour of Rajasthan is incomplete without trying some of the scrumptious dishes here.
Dal Bati Churma is a famous food in Rajasthan where the tasty Batis are served with Panchkuti dal and the churma. Those who love spicy food will enjoy Laal Maas, which is full of fiery red chillies. For rice lovers, Gatte ki Khichdi and Gatte ka Pulao are some of the popular Rajasthani food items that one must try. The spicy Rajasthani Kadi is different from the Kadi eaten across the country and is also a must try.
Among the popular Rajasthani snacks are the sugary sweet Mawa Kachori, the tasty Methi Bajra Poori, the scrumptious Pyaaz Kachori, and the crispy Kalmi Vada. Any visit to this state is also incomplete without savoring Rajasthani sweets list like Ghevar, Balushahi, Gujia, and Churma Ladoo.
Tourists will come across a variety of exquisite wares in the streets and bazaars of Rajasthan that reflects its rich and diverse culture. Any tourist guide in Rajasthan will tell you that Johari Bazar is the perfect place to visit for Jaipuri ornaments. Bapu Bazaar has a variety of handlooms while Clock tower market is famous for its spices. For Bandhani items, Nai Sarak is the place to go whereas Hathi Pol Bazar is the ideal place for home items. Sadar Bazar, Mahatma Gandhi Road, and Kote Gate are other bazaars one must check out on a trip to Rajasthan.
The weather in Rajasthan generally varies due to the fact that the state has a tropical desert climate. Rajasthan weather is extremely cold from October to February, scorching hot from the months of April to June, and quite pleasant from July till September. Temperatures can reach as high as 49°C and as low as -2°C. Jaisalmer, Phalodi, and Barmer are the hottest regions while Churu, Sikar, Bikaner, and Pilani get pretty cold. Rainfall in Rajasthan depends on the region you are in, with the east of the Aravalli region receiving much more rainfall than the westward area.

There are a myriad of fairs and festivals in Rajasthan that showcases its colorful vibrancy and heritage. Among the popular festivals of Rajasthan is the Rajasthan International Folk Festival in Jodhpur that is celebrated around Sharad Purnima. This festival is a treat for art and music lovers.

The Desert festival in Jaisalmer is another famous Rajasthan festival where the spirit of Rajasthan comes alive in the form of camel races, desert rituals and life, competitions like turban tying, longest moustache, Mr Desert etc, scrumptious food, and handicrafts stalls. This festival lasts for three days and is generally held in February.
The Teej festival and the Gangaur festival in Jaipur are traditional festivals of Rajasthan that are marked by old palanquins, elephant processions, folk songs, and chariots.

Preeti's 6 days trip to RajasthanHello Travel triangle team, It was pleasure to have you as a travel agent for our honeymoon trip at Rajastan. Hotels like Swaroop vilas, Golden haveli and tent in Sam were excellent but Tree house Amara was inconvenient and found rat roaming in the room one of which bite my husband, which was very bad experience. As far as cab and driver is concern both were great. We enjoyed our travel time with our driver Kapil. Deepak from trippy travel agency was very helpful during our whole trip. Thank you. vilesh acharekar
