Rajasthan - which means 'the land of kings' - is the largest state of India, by area. It predominantly comprises of the Aravalli mountain range on the east and the Thar desert on the west. Given its legacy of Rajput dynasties, the state is full of historic monuments, forts, palaces, mansions and cenotaphs, that stand testimony to the rich architectural traditions of the Rajputs. Also, the state has a very strong Jain influence, and consequently, there are a number of finely crafted Jain temples across the state. The state is rich in fauna, with three major tiger reserves and a desert national park. All these attractions have led to Rajasthan becoming one of the most preferred tourism destinations of India.
