Rajasthan lies in the vast golden desert of Thar, in its majestic forts and romantic lakes. The intricately carved temples, and a charming mix of colours is what makes Rajasthan the most vibrant state of India!
But a new series of commercials rolled out by the Tourism Department of Rajasthan has captured the unseen and unexplored avenues of the state. Shot from a tourist's point of view, these ads show how each one discovers his/her own Rajasthan, and forms a unique bond with it.
Prefixing the name of the tourist to the state's name, very intelligently, these ads appeal to every tourist's heart. Also, you can't ignore the catchy music that plays in the background!
Adding to the excitement quotient of travelling - the new logo of Rajasthan Tourism says - Jane kya dikh jaye.
Unveiling the logo
The first introduction with Rajasthan Tourism, this advertisement unveils the logo quite creatively. It gives a glimpse of the rich heritage and culture of Rajasthan through the sand art. Taking us through the forts and palaces, the Ghoomar dance, and a man playing the traditional instrument Kamaicha, the sand art finally reveals the logo.
