When Aurangzeb usurped the Mughal throne from his father shah Jahan and began his anti-Hindu tirade, the rajputs grew restless and this led to the sprouting of the seeds of rebellion. After the Decline of the Mughal Empire, the Marathas from central India created tremendous upheaval, till the British appeared on the scene. The Rajputs states signed the treaty of protection, came under the preview of the British political agents and accepted their paramount. They divested the Rajputs kings of all their powers but let them keep their wealth. These rulers continued to be the benefactors of their subjects but began to enjoy an extravagant and lavish lifestyle, which compiled in the form of anecdotes are narrated even today. With Rajasthan cultural tour, tourists can observe it’s the real royalty indulged in sports, shikar (hunting) and polo being their favorite games. In the wake of awareness towards conservation of wild life, the hunting spots were later converted into wild life sanctuaries like Sariska, Ranthambhore and Bharatpur.

The British initiated several reforms, abolished social practices like sati and introduced education. They earned the support of the Rajputs kings during the Indian mutiny of 1857 and during the First World War. But once India gained independence and became the world’s largest democracy, rule of monarchy was destined to end. One by one, all the princely states of Rajputana signed the instrument of accession in return for annual privy purses and certain other privileges. The state was restructured and acquired the new name Rajasthan by the end of 1956, which can be explored with the help of Rajasthan cultural tour. The royal princes all over India received another serious blow some years later, when their privy purses were abolished and the favors accorded to them were also withdrawn.
