The famous Golden Triangle of tourism in India consists of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. We have already visited Delhi and Agra. So the next stop of our tour will be Jaipur in the colorful state of Rajasthan. Jaipur is also the state capital of Rajasthan.

To me, after the Amber Fort and the Amber Palace (which is located inside the Amber Fort), the most interesting thing to see in Jaipur is the Hawa Mahal or the Palace of Winds. Below is a stamp image showing the Hawa Mahal. Click on the stamp image to see a real photograph of this interesting building. In fact, you can click on any stamp image on this page to see a better picture of the stamp subject and/or to learn more about it.

Traveling farther inside Rajasthan, one can see the famous Victory Tower of Chittorgarh located inside the Chittorgarh Fort.

Chittorgarh Fort is not the only fort to be seen in Rajasthan. More famous and impressive forts are loacted in Jodhpur and Jaisalmer. In fact, Rajasthan has numerous forts scattered all over the state. That is why Rajasthan is often referred to as the Land of Forts. The Jodhpur Fort has found its place on an Indian stamp.

There are many other places to see in Rajasthan. Among the other most popular tourist destinations are Udaipur, Ajmer, Pushkar Lake, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Mount Abu, Ranthambore, and Bharatpur. Unfortunately, I do not have other Indian postage stamps to illustrate these places.

Rajasthan has many attractions for tourists- forts, palaces, temples, lakes, sand-covered desert, wildlife parks, colorful festivals, places of pilgrimmage etc. Rajasthan also offers the tourists an opportunity to travel on elephant's and camel's back. Rajasthan is a photographers paradise. It is a must visit state of India.

One last note. If you travel by road or by train in Rajasthan, you will see lots of wild peacocks wondering around on fields or are perched on trees. This is an extra ordinary scene not seen in many places. Though in India wild peacocks can be seen in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh too (more or less within the area covered by the Golden Triangle), wild peacocks are much more abundant in Rajasthan. So keep your camera ready if you are traveling by land in Rajasthan. At some places, flocks of peacocks can be seen. A very memorable scene.
