Amazing legends of heroism and romance still resound from its equally amazing architecture that still stands to tell a tale of a bygone era. The stories about their courage and bravery, the heroism and rivalry, the queens and concubines are still told. The magic of Rajasthan is unequalled in the world for its heritage, culture, safaris, sand dunes and lush green forests filled with wildlife. Rajasthan is often described as a huge open-air museum with relics, so well preserved for the future generations of its people and its visitors.
