At a Glance

The images of India that capture the mind are contrasting: the bustling streets and markets of Delhi and the serene white marble of the Taj Mahal bathed in light. But for a more rounded understanding of India you must begin in these places and then go beyond — to the expansive desert region of Rajasthan, where chivalrous warrior princes constructed majestic hilltop forts and bejeweled palaces. While the princes have conceded their kingdoms to the modern democracy of India, the architecture, commerce and culture they once reigned over still endure. For many, what is left is the essence of India.
