  • Gazing at the Taj Mahal: Built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, its construction commenced in 1631 AD and took 20 years to complete, the Taj Mahal in Agra is a sight to behold. A marvel in marble, it is an architectural masterpiece and one of the seven wonders in the world. Gazing at its otherworldly beauty is a magical experience that can hardly be described in words. The immense grandeur of the mausoleum, the moving story behind its construction, and its value as a heritage gem in India, all come together to make it a truly royal destination.
  • Game Drive at Ranthambore National Park: Did you know that Ranthambore National Park and Tiger Reserve in Sawai Madhopur was once the private game reserve of the royal family of Jaipur? A dry deciduous forest, it has a very diverse topography with the 10th century Ranthambore Fort being its most characteristic structure. If you want to feel like a royal too, then what better way to enjoy a jungle safari at their former hunting grounds!

Also known as the ‘Jewel of Jaipur’, its sprawling manicured gardens and beautiful architecture will sweep you off your feet. And the most royal experience is undoubtedly a soul-satisfying dinner at one of its fine-dining restaurants.
  • Boat Ride on Lake Pichola: Framed by scenic mountains, grand forts, and beautiful palaces, Lake Pichola is one of the dreamiest destinations in our country. Situated in the heart of Udaipur, it was built in 1362 by Pichhu Bajanara. According to legend, Maharana Udai Singh was so enraptured by the beauty of this lake that he decided to build an entire city on its bank. If you are looking for a magical experience with the love of your life, then enjoy a romantic boat ride in the twinkling city of Udaipur.
