Rajasthan is the land of the Maharajas with rich cultural history & heritage. Home to numerous palaces, forts, and monuments, Rajasthan is the best place for history buffs and tourists. Formerly known as Rajputana (since it was ruled by rajputs), Rajasthan offers a lavish and royal experience to its visitors.
The word Rajput means 'son of rulers', who came into existence during the 8th century and found their kingdom. During 1200 AD, Muslim rulers made their way into Rajasthan. And, a lot of states fell into their hands. At the end of the 13th century, Mewar was the strongest reign of Rajasthan. When the Mughal Empire started to decline during 1707 and in 1755 Ajmer came into the hands of the Marathas. From 1817-18, the state was under the rule of the British. After independence, the state was named Rajasthan after the integration of all 18 princely states, 2 chieftains and Ajmer-Merwara province.
