If you are visiting Rajasthan first time than Jaipur is the best place to experience the culture & heritage of Rajasthan. You can visit Amer Fort, Hawa Mahal, Jal Mahal, Birla Temple and Jantar Mantar (Royal Observatory).

If you want to see the desert and go for a camel ride than Jaisalmer is a good choice.
