The Desert Festival is an annual event organized in the beautiful city of Jaisalmer. This three day festival is held in the month of February and is organized in association with the Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation. The Desert Festival represents the rich and colorful Rajasthani folk culture.

During the festival, villagers sing and dance eloquently to the triumphs and the tragedies of the land.

Attractions include traditional gymnasts, mystical snake charmers, entertaining puppet shows and captivating folk music recitals. Along with this, a number of competitions are held during the festival, including the turban tying competition and longest moustaches competition. It's a fantastic showcase of all things Rajasthani, and is justifiably popular with tourists, both Indian and foreign. Besides the food, the music and the cultural performances, there are camel rides, processions, camel polo, and even a camel tug-of-war. All of it is held against the backdrop of the awesome Jaisalmer Fort. Firework displays at night light up the area, and the fort is illuminated too.

Delhi closer to UNESCO world heritage city status.

Delhi - IndiaGateAs Delhi celebrates its 100 year anniversary as the capital of India, heritage conservation groups are designing guided tours and heritage walks to highlight the most important historical sites in the city. The Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) is a non-profit organization designed to involve its members in protecting and conserving India’s vast natural, built and cultural heritage. They have now set their sights on Delhi as a heritage tourism destination.
The city of Delhi has a long history - the British capital, the foundation of which was laid in December, 1911, was planned by two leading 20th century British architects,

Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker, who embedded it with Victorian style grandeur. Today, after a century of growth, its citizens live in an environment where new elements are juxtaposed with old ones. Often centuries-old buildings and groups of buildings lie out of sight behind modern development. Sometimes new growth tends to overshadow the older areas of the city. But these areas and the communities that live in them represent the city’s history, tradition, heritage, culture, architecture and craftsmanship.
