Expert Guide to Rajasthan
When going to Jaipur or anywhere in Rajasthan it is important to have a good driver. However waiting until you arrive will only yield to a confusing bombardment of options. I can recommend to you someone who will make your trip completely enjoyable as he is an honest experienced guide and just a great person. His English is excellent and he hosts guests from many countries of other languages as well. His name is Vinod Bharadwaj and he has a web site http://gunjantravels.com . contact him by phone or email and you will see that your trip is off to a great start. As he said to us on our first trip with him after a few days, "I am a kangaroo and you are in my pouch."
Being with Vinod made sour trip extraordinary. He is the kindest, warmest person, and showed us a parts of India that can only be reached by someone who lives there. He made us fall in love with India, and we have been back 4...

In the modern cities of Rajasthan you may not find many people using turbans but in rural areas you will find all the people using turbans.

Rajasthani Culture is different
The Ghoomar dance from Udaipur and Fire dances of Jaisalmer have their own distinct style and portray the cultural heritage of Rajasthan. The music is simple but compelling, and the dances depict personal relationships and daily life, often focused around collecting water from wells. Female dancers twirl while balancing up to 6 pots on their heads. The grace and balance displayed in these whirling dances is breathtaking. The top most pot has a fire burning in it.(It is often called Fire-Dancing)Folk music is also a vital part of Rajasthani culture. Folk songs are commonly ballads which relate heroic deeds and love stories. Religious or devotional songs known as bhajans and banis (often accompanied by musical instruments like dholak, sitar and sarangi ) are also part of the repartoire.The songs are plaintive, and even if one does not understand the words- the story told through the dance...
