Rajasthan - A Colourful Legacy - Colours explode into life in Rajasthan. If its former rulers chose to establish their kingdoms here, it is because there is so much more than just the desert in Rajasthan. There are its Vindhya and Aravalli hills, amongst the oldest in the world. There are its lakes, many of them artificially created, but still amongst the largest in the sub-continent. There are wildlife sanctuaries and national parks; all home to a large number of species, that include birds like the Peacock and predators like the Tiger. There are sprawling fortifications fairytale palaces, festivals, celebrations and a legacy of arts and crafts that form part of a continuous living and vibrant culture.
Here, history unfolds in a stirring drama. Forts and palaces, seemingly endless deserts, the expanse of lakes and rivers, the foliage of dense forests and the year-round celebrations, are woven into montages, through which the films are linked. Each tells a tale. Each is the start of a journey into perhaps one of the most fascinating destination in the world.
