Rajasthan is located in the northwest of India and covers an area about the size of Germany. Therefore the state is relatively easy to reach and can be well travelled. It offers excellent value for money and, thanks to the legacy of the Rajput warriors and Mughal Emperors, probably has the greatest density of cultural attractions in all of India. Yes, it can be loud, dirty, frenetic and of oppressive poverty, but Rajasthan is hard to beat for small adventures and pure spectacle.
