The State of Rajasthan is among the most recommended areas to visit first. Before India's Independence from British rule in 1947, this particular region was known as Rajputana meaning land of the Rajputs. The Rajputs are warrior clans of which there are many. Formed in the 6th and 7th centuries, they came to be called Rajputs or sons of princes. Medieval forts are to be found all over the state and within them palaces, several of which are now hotels. 22 princely states and chiefdoms were merged into the state of Rajasthan and 19 of them had Rajput rulers. Rajasthan is India's most colourful state. The colour being mostly on its people. The women stand out from afar in their fields of green or the brown desert sand by the stark colours of their costumes. All red, or orange or pink or some other unimaginably brilliant shade. On the handsome men, it is the colourful turban and moustache that makes them striking. In rural Rajasthan and even to a great extent in the cities and towns, the traditional dress is still largely worn.

Rajasthan has long been regarded as the real home of traditional Maharaja's, besides a land packed with Forts and Palaces of Maharaja's, it is also home to a large population of tribal of whom the Bhils and Minas form the largest groups.
