Every year March 30 is celebrated as Rajasthan Diwas or Rajasthan Day, which marks the formation of this state. The kingdoms of Jodhpur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer and Bikaner were accessed together to form the present day state of Rajasthan on March 30, 1949. The present-day Rajasthan was formed in 7 stages. Rajasthan carries a royal cultural history because of it being ruled by great kings in the past. Rajasthan is derived from Raja meaning king and Sthan which means abode, so it literally means the ‘land of Kings.’ The Rajasthan Foundation Day or Rajasthan Diwas is thus a very important day in the state and is celebrated by arranging various programmes and cultural events all across. It is an important day for the citizens of the state and many people are thus exchanging wishes for Rajasthan Diwas on social media. November 1 is State Formation Day for Seven Indian States: Know Why and How Karnataka, Kerala, MP, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh Formed.
Rajasthan is the largest state area wise in India. On March 30, 1949, Rajputana (as it was called by the British Raj) was merged into the Dominion of India. Jaipur, the largest city is the capital of this state. The state, however, officially came into existence on November 1, 1956. Rajasthan carries a deep cultural and historical significance. Some parts of the present-day state were part of the Vedic Civilisation and Indus Valley Civilisation. It was later ruled by dynasties like Gurjars, Rajputs, Jats, Meenas, Bhils, Yadavs, Bishnois among others, all of which made a great contribution in the building of this state.
