Rajasthan



A revered congregation of the greatest lyric poets who took the poetic form of ghazals to unparalleled heights will be held in Nagaur and Jodhpur. Come join us in this musical extravaganza set in the imposing Ahhichatragarh and Mehrangarh Fort respectively. The result is a high energy atmosphere soaring with a collection of some best verses from across the world.



Ahhichatragarh, this 04th century fort is in the heart of Nagaur town with a most distinctive characteristic of being located on a flat land. The periphery of the imposing facade houses many temples and mosques displaying intricate architecture and glimpses of splendour. Easily accessible through Jodhpur and Bikaner, Nagaur is also popular for its Cattle fair.



Of all the many forts in Rajasthan, very few compare to majesty of the 15th century Meherangarh Fort. Built on a high rocky cliff, the views from the fort stretch all across the plains as far as the Mewari fort at Kumbalgarh.
