An undeniable photography heaven “Rajasthan”

An undeniable photography heaven, stepped in royal history, Rajasthan showcases colorful locals rivaled only by their attire, grand palaces, havelis, celebrations and a landscape as barren and harsh as it is beautiful. Jaisalmer’s canvas of sand is dotted with camels, the floating Lake Palace of Udaipur, forts in Jodhpur and Jaipur with sentries standing guard in traditional attire and the Pushkar fair all offer rich pickings for your camera. The hazy morning and twilight light lends itself to surreal images, but then this holds true for most of Rajasthan.
Good time to visit: Late October – February
