    If you’re looking to dive into India’s architectural wonders or explore its rich and beautiful history, all you need to do is take a trip to Rajasthan, a state that is believed to have more history than the rest of the country put together.

    i guess the topic is bit confusing. All the lovely places are from Rajasthan which are undoubtedly a must visit during an India trip but I am looking for more places of India. It would be great if you highlight the less known places but must ones in your content.
