Preserved through time, THIS 1000-yo village near Jaipur is a time capsule!

Rusirani Village has no modern amenities like electricity and communication services.

Can you imagine a day without your cellphone? That's the thrill of life for those who visit Rusirani Village, near Jaipur. Nestled among the Aravallis, this quaint hamlet has allured tourists from far off lands with its remote amenities that help them re-connect with nature.

It is most famous for its Shiva Temple, which is believed to date back to at least a millennia! Apart from this iconic architecture, tourists can also spot traditional homes and markets full of handicrafts. So if you too are looking to experience rural Rajasthan, make your way to Rusirani Village, when the pandemic recedes.


Home to an 'upset queen'

Rusirani literally translates to 'upset queen' which is a reference to the Queen of Alwar, after whom the village is named. It is popularly believed that she left her palace after the king upset her and reached this village, where she felt at home. Some also say that this rural area is mentioned in an Indian epic and was home to the Pandava brothers, right before Mahabharata began.

Interestingly, this 2000-year-old village has no modern amenities like electricity and communication services. Further, transport facilities are quite weak too, thereby, making it one of the remotest area in the state. This mind-boggling existence is what allures 21st-century travellers to this place- they get to indulge in an early-civilization-like lifestyle!

Providing a unique experience laden with panoramic views, Rusirani Village has untouched heritage, temple ruins and stepwells that beckon you to visit this place. Also, while you are here post-pandemic, do not forget to purchase the local handicrafts that you can take back home as precious souvenirs!
