Monuments of Rajasthan - forts, palaces, temples, observatories, havelis etc - are the prime attractions of the state. They seem to quietly unfold the story of Rajasthan before a visiting tourist. They are a standing testimony of an era that was marked by plenty of actions and emotions. Individually too, they have a whole range of interesting aspect that make a visit worthwhile. The architecture, sometimes entirely Rajputana style while at other times displaying a mix with other styles (like Mughal), present an impressive sight from outside. Inside, the splendid interior decor with paintings, mirrorwork, portraits, carvings etc exude a picture postcard beauty.

Though in general, the monuments reflect the love of grandeur and beauty in the hearts of the erstwhile Rajasthanis, yet they had some really basic purpose for their construction like defensive, religious and accommodation. A few were even the result of the desire of the rajas to do something really unique.

Some of the most well known monuments of the state are quiet obviously located in the big cities. However, even the smaller and remote destinations preserve enough of monumental heritage of Rajasthan for tourists. It is infact these little less famous destinations that need to be visited in order to understand the history and culture of Rajasthan in greater depth. Each monument narrate an entirely new story from its pages of historybook.

For a tourist, it is hard to ignore these monuments during his trip to Rajasthan as they are not just linked to its past, rather they have an inextricable link to its present. Despite this, even if it is somehow possible to look the other way, be assured that almost all the fun of the trip has also managed to elude the tourist. So visit these monuments to make a successful trip.
