Tourism is a flourishing industry in Rajasthan as it is endowed with natural beauty and a great history. There are far too many places to visit in Rajasthan. The most important places to visit in Rajastan include - The palaces of Jaipur and Ajmer-Pushkar, the lakes of Udaipur, the desert forts of Jodhpur, Taragarh Fort in Bundi, and Bikaner and Jaisalmer.
