Rajasthan happens to be the largest state of India with an area of 3.42 lac
sq. kms. Rajasthan also boasts of being the only desert of the sub
continent, namely the Great Indian Desert in combination with the Aravali
mountain range. The development in all the aspects of life of the people of
Rajasthan has not faded the charisma, color and charm a bit.
The land still speaks of the chivalry of its rulers; the palaces are
evidence of the royalty that reigned for centuries. Rajasthan is the abode
of the kings, that is, Raja's sthan (place).
