The forbidding landscape of insipid browns and impregnable fortresses is often the most prevalent image visitors take away from the desert state of Rajasthan. But while these breathtaking palaces are the enduring legacy of the Rajput royals, the real soul of Rajasthan is best glimpsed off the beaten path, where amusing stories, eccentric traditions, unusual encounters, and elusive relics await your discovery. 111 Places in Rajasthan leads you beyond the veil of famous legends, monuments, shopping destinations, and culinary pleasures, to the state´s most unexpected and often outlandish locales. Watch wild deer roam the homes of tribal groups; make an offering of whiskey at a motorcycle shrine; meet a tigon - a half lion, half tiger; or become the subject of a comedic roast by an expletive-ridden folk theatre troupe. Explore the hidden treasures of Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Udaipur, and experience what makes Rajasthan one of the most exotic and exciting regions in the world.

Entdecken Sie amüsante Geschichten, außergewöhnliche Rituale und kulinarische Genüsse fernab der Touristenpfade.

Dieses Buch lüftet den Schleier, der die Legenden, Denkmäler und Schauplätze des Landes umhüllt. Lernen Sie Jaipur, Jodhpur und Udaipur neu kennen und erleben Sie, was den Wüstenstaat zu einer der exotischsten und spannendsten Regionen der Welt macht.
