"Everything was excellent. Another Remote Lands trip in a few weeks!"
India - Alwar
Under the British Raj, Alwar was the capital of a "princely state," a semi-autonomous kingdom typically ruled by a maharaja. In contrast to much of the rest of Rajasthan's desert and arid hills, Alwar is set in a picturesque valley and enclosed by the verdant Aravalli Hills. The city is home to a wealth of historical and natural attractions, and serves as a center of agricultural production.
