One of the best tours of Rajasthan for two weeks is offering a visit to the historical sites depicting the story of Rajput's vigor in this region. The Princely kingdoms of Rajasthan merged as one state of the Indian union after independence. Though Rajasthan did not have a common political and administrative entity before this, its socio-culture history was knit based on its history, life patterns, values systems, and linguistic unity. By the eleventh century, great epics such as Chand Bardai's Prithviraj Raso had come into existence. This great tradition of written literature continues till today through a large number of heroic epics, legendary ballads, poetry, devotional compositions, works on prosody, dictionaries, tales in prose, and critical treatises on philosophy, religion, logic, and medicine. The tradition of Jain and Charan literature has enriched cultural discourse in recording historical events and people's aspirations through a common mode of Language.
