If you live somewhere near New Delhi, Rajasthan is an easily-accessible state. Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Ajmer, and Chittorgarh are some of the cities where you can plan a romantic getaway around Valentine’s Day.
Since the sun is not scorching hot in the sun, it will be easier for you to get acquainted with the history of these cities, visit forts and relish in the delights of Rajasthan, which is also known around the world for their rich and lip-smacking food.
Odisha is another destination where you can plan a romantic getaway in February. From beaches in Puri to historic temples in Konark, there are many destinations that you can visit with your partner if you both like to discover old styles of architecture.
