The Rawther live in Rajasthan, India’s largest state, which lies in the western portion of the country and borders Pakistan.
The majority of the state’s land area lies in the Thar Desert, also known as the Great Indian Desert, rendering the state extremely dry and sandy. However, the Aravali mountain range runs north to south through the western portion of the state and is considerably more fertile. Despite the fact that the Rajasthan is so arid, the economy remains primarily agricultural, with the main products being oilseed, wheat, cotton, and tobacco. Mineral and textile industries are also very successful.
A state rich in culture, beauty, and history, Rajasthan is a popular tourist destination for travelers from around the world. It is known for its colorful art, traditional music and dance, as well as its majestic palaces and desert forts.
Within Rajasthan, the majority of the population is Hindu, though more than 8% are Muslim. There is also a significant population of Sindhi people, who came to Rajasthan from the Sindh province of Pakistan during the Partition of 1947.
