Udaipur is popularly known as the ‘City of Dawn’, Udaipur draws its beauty from the numerous lakes set amidst the green Aravalli Hills in the desert state of Rajasthan. The clear blue waters of Lake Pichola, the 17th century palaces of sandstone and marble, adorned with amber, colored glass, fountains, Japanese-style gardens, and a string of canals connecting the various artificial lakes, make Udaipur a quintessential royal city amidst a gorgeous natural setting.
Varanasi once known as Benares or Banaras and Kashi, is a historical city in northern India.The city is sacred to Hindus and also one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. In many ways Varanasi epitomizes the very best and worst aspects of India, and it can be a little overwhelming. However, the scene of pilgrims doing their devotions in the River Ganges at sunrise set against the back drop of the centuries old temples is probably one of the most impressive sights in the world - definitely a must see destination on any trip to northern India.
A favorite stop on the Delhi-Agra-Varanasi circuit, Khajuraho is world-famous for its intricately carved sandstone temples. Hewn over the course of a century, the temples of the Chandela dynasty are perhaps the finest examples of the Indo-Aryan style of temple architecture in all of India. Topped by graceful shikharas (towers), the Khajuraho temples are covered in a panoply of carvings, many depicting couples in graphic amorous tangles from the Kamasutra. Carvings of sensual surasundaris(nymphs) and apsaras (celestial dancing girls). The temples are grouped into three clusters, set around a series of ponds - to reach the monuments, visitors run a gauntlet of would-be guides, but the artistic brilliance of the temples more than compensates for the hassles. When not admiring temples, visitors can enjoy yoga and Ayurvedic treatments and a handful of intriguing museums, or day trip to Panna National Park..
