    Qutb Minar and its Monuments

    4
    35 reviews

    This is historically one of the most significant spot in Delhi. It is from here that Islam gained foothold in India and it is from here that the modern shape of India took place. I often visit Qutub Minar Complex and love the monuments it houses. I also love to explore the Mehrauli Archaeological Park adjacent to this complex which ...

    22 reviews

    Just a ferry ride away from the Gateway of India, these exquisite caves are like taking a step back into ancient history. Be careful of the monkeys though! They will take whatever you have to offer -- and don't offer.

    The awesome science and level of knowledge achieved by India is astounding. It was a shocking experience to witness the level of development in physics and Mathematics that the ancient Indians possessed. I was rudely awakened to the fact that lots of modern western science and math was actually just rediscovered and had already been know in Asian society. I ...

    Must go here on any HYD visit. Hire a car for 2-4 hours. Its very chaotic at the outside of the fort and its nice to jump out of a car and back into on. If you are adventurous there are plenty of rickshaws to take you there and back again. Make sure to take at least an hour - ...

    Golden Temple

    5
    26 reviews

    The holiest of holies for the Sikh faith (it's essentially an offshoot of Hinduism that despite its tiny size provides one of the most visible, friendly, and widespread minority populations in the whole of India), the Golden Temple is arguably India's best pure 'spiritual' temple experience. At dawn or dusk, the sound of the tabla and chanting from the Guru ...

    City Palace

    4
    11 reviews

    This gorgeous, ornate, maze-like white marble palace on the shores of Udaipur's Lake Pichola is the anchor of the town, and a must-see for visitors. The museum inside, usually an afterthought, actually provides a decent historical picture of the Rajput kingdoms that once ruled Rajasthan. Allow at least two hours to take in the whole palace.

    4
    16 reviews

    This is a must-see in Udaipur. It is a beautiful former palace that was converted into a Taj Hotel, and its main mystique is that it was built in the middle of Lake Pichola. Stunning and utterly luxurious!
