Home to one of the seven wonders of the world- The Taj Mahal
Visit the bazaar in the city centre. An evening visit is a complete assault to the senses-the colors, the sights, the sounds and the smells. There are different specialist zones, whether it's good, flowers, textiles, carved statues. While you should be wary, be sure not to completely close yourself out to the locals as one of the highlights of Rajasthan is the chance to interact with the friendly people. It is not uncommon to be invited to homes for dinner parties and even weddings as many middle class young people are curious of foreigners and genuinely very hospitable as is the open culture of the region( which you will not find in Delhi/Agra). Be sure to spend time sharing masala chai and chatting with some of the gen Y of Rajasthan
