Art & Culture
Religion has always played a very important role in the lives of Indian people right from medieval times. Numerous religions practiced by Indians can sometimes bewilder the visitor but a general understanding and tolerance has always existed and accounted for the wonderful cultural unity that has kept the Indian spirit alive. What is true for rest of India is true for Rajasthan as well. Almost all the major religion are represented here. Apart from the Hindus, that form a majority, there are Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Jains etc.
Rajasthan also has its share of myths and folklore. Custom that had to do with social welfare was promoted and kept alive over the years in the form of rituals and still religiously followed. Several folk heroes are worshipped and one can see hundreds of simple shrines in every village. Stones are painted and established in tiny temples under trees and near wells. Folk heroes like Pabuji, Gogaji, Baba Ramdeo, Harbhuji and Mehaji are revered. All form of nature is worshipped and each area has its own local deity. Some of the major temples and important religious centers like Pushkar, Nathdwara, Deshnok, Amer exist in this state.
There is also a large majority of Sikhs and Christians who have merged with other communities to give Rajasthan a cosmopolitan flavour.
