Where India's spiritual and visible beauties converge

16th May 2013

India's massive north-western state of Rajasthan has a million words to commend it to individuals or couples seeking private journeys.

Spiritual, magical, attractive, always unexplained, always mysterious, the first step to falling in love; to discovering undying passion, to finding a permanent place in the heart are but a few of them.

Holidaymakers on specialist tours are probably best left to discover for themselves the esoteric nature of this magnetic Sufi destination, with its sand dunes and mountains summoning those who love adventure, yet crave spiritual solace.

Time and again, celebrities - especially Bollywood stars - and tourists alike can never pinpoint that exact "thing" that mysteriously draws them to this state.

Many arrive seeking solace, associating Rajasthan with Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti's dargah (shrine) at Ajmer, and equally to the Kaale Hanumanji temple, or the Khatu Shyamji temple.

Visible beauty vies with spiritual beauty for the tourist's affections.

The Ranthambore National Park is one of northern India's biggest parks and among the world's greatest wildlife sanctuaries when it comes to tiger conservation.

But Rajasthan does more than satisfy your wanderlust and provide breathtaking film locations. Many locals say it has everything to do with faith.
