Rajasthan and her People

Page Last Updated: January 11, 2018

With an area of 342,239 square miles, Rajasthan is a large state in northwestern India (see: Map of Rajasthan). It is the homeland of the Rajputs, who are known for their chivalry, valor and heroism. In battle, the Rajputs preferred death to dishonor, while in friendship they were generous to a fault. In ancient times, this land was known as Rajaputana. The present state of Rajasthan has been formed by the union of twenty-two former princely states such as Udaipur, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Bikaner and Jaisalmer. The Aravali mountain range divides the state into eastern and western halves. Rajasthan has a large expanse of rocky land and sandy desert interspersed with forest and fertile tracts. It has burning sands, shimmering lake palaces, innumerable temples, and fortresses. The hardships of the desert have inspired rich color and pageantry amongst its people.
