From being known as the desert state, Rajasthan turns into a haven for wanderlust-ers during the monsoons. The gentle downpour of rain drops mixed with eye-popping scenes of heritage, culture & tradition can make you feel like you have achieved serenity. Following are a few destinations you should definitely visit during the rains:
The Sacred Pushkar Sarovar (Pushkar Lake), Pushkar
Distance From Jaipur : 150 Kilometres
Picture you sitting lake-side, little drops of water fuzzing up your hair & soothing chants playing in the background. Peaceful, isn’t it?
That’s exactly the experience you will get at Pushkar Lake. Located in the town of Pushkar in Ajmer district, the sacred lake was a famous pilgrimage site dating back to the 4th century. 52 different ghats surround 22 hectares of calming water surface.
Nahargarh Fort (Abode of Tigers), Jaipur
Distance From Jaipur : 20 Kilometres
Built just on the edges of Aravalli Hills, Nahargarh fort provides for spectacular scenes of the city that is Jaipur. The Fort was originally built as part of a defence ring but later became a hunting retreat for the Maharajas of Rajasthan. Other than being a popular chill pad for Jaipur youth, Nahargarh is also known to be the favourite destination of families during monsoons. The regular pour of rainfall makes the generally dull colours become bright & vibrant.
The City of Lakes (Udaipur)
Distance From Jaipur : 396 Kilometres
Udaipur is called the city of lakes because of the high number of lakes present in the city (5 Lakes in total). The sheer beauty of this city has also led to Udaipur being called ‘Venice of The East’.
Among the many attractions, Monsoon Palace & Fateh Sagar Lake are best experienced during the monsoons.
Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur
Distance From Jaipur : 187 Kilometres
Named after a Shiva temple, Keoladeo National Park is home to over 360 bird species, 50 species of fish, 7 species of turtle among a large variety of flora & fauna species.
