India and particularly the desert state of Rajasthan have always had a special nomadic tent culture. In the era of the Mughal Emperors, whole tented cities were sometimes erected for royal weddings, special celebrations, durbars and hunting expeditions into the Thar Desert.

The UK’s Raj Tent club keep this tradition alive and sell or hire these colourful types of tents. Check out their website for more tent pics from yesteryear.
