What better time than Valentine’s Day to whisk your loved one away on an enchanting break. Still making your travel plans? We list three Rajasthan getaways high on romantic quotient.


It’s the pink city, known for its royalty, palaces and forts. However, the Pink City is also known for its romantic conjunctions.

It is the place where Jodha Bai and Akbar’s love bloomed and centuries later, the city witnessed the blossoming of Sawai Man Singh II’s love for Princess Gayatri Devi.

Serenade your partner through the hallowed portals of the City Palace, retrace the steps of Jodha and Akbar through a tour of Amber fort and gorge on Rajasthani food. Still unimpressed?

Take her to one of the royal jewelers and buy her some exquisite Meenakari jewellery and rest assured, it will certainly impress her.
