Varanasi is an ancient city with decadent scene of numerous temples, vibrant markets, sadhus in clad of saffron, and riverside ghats. Try to experience riding a boat on the Ganges, and explore the small alleys in the old part of the town. Also try the indigenous delicacies offered at halwais. At night, catch the Ganga Aarti, a wonderful experience of Indian culture in chants, pealing bells, incense and fire. The perfect time to visit Varanasi is during the Ganga Mahotsav’s festival dance and classical music runs for 5 days and also during Diwali when diyas drove in thousands line up at the ghats.
Udaipur is known as the Lake City and is best toured riding on a boat especially in Lake Pichola. The Jagar Mandir in the City Palace Complex is located at the very heart of the lake which adds charm to its exquisite beauty. The Bagore ki Haveli a waterside at the Gangaur Ghat is a spreading palace with 100 plus rooms, gorgeous al fresco areas, and courtyards. Performances like folk dancing can be watched every night. See intricate marble carvings of the Dilwara Temple at the Mt. Abu station hill.
Kolkata is probably an Indian city where buildings are different from other places. A lot of the touristy spots in Kolkata have European inspired such as the Greco- Romanesque Writers’ Building and the grand St. Paul’s Cathedral. The Victoria Memorial is also an enchanting place to visit in Kolkata. Chandan Nagar, a former colony of France and about 30 kilometers away from Kolkata is home to a number of monuments, riverside strands, and monuments. The Shantiniketan of Nobel Laureate Tagore is just 180 kilometers away and can be an interesting trip for people who love history.
Umaid Bhawan Palace, Jodhpur
This enormous art deco inspired palace is still a place of residence of the royalty built in the 1920s. Umaid Bhawan Palace is constructed using white marble and honey sandstone located about 3 kilometeres south of the old part of the city. The building looks so massive and a perfectly manicured flora that one can think it is a parliament building or an integral part of a university. This palace is also a heritage hotel just as it is a royal palace itself with luxury rooms, elegant swimming pools indoor to deliberately make one feel regal while staying here and some sporting amenities exclusively for the rich and famous.
Khajuraho Temple, Khajuraho
The Khajuraho Temple is one of India’s world heritage sites and among the finest art structure in the world with its erotic carvings and well sculpted walls. There are actually three temple groups in Khajuraho, but the western group part is said to be the best area to be visited. The steep towers and charming sculptures represent the greatness of the temple style in Northern India. The temples are also incredibly decorated with impressive well detailed statues of people, animals, and other decorative styling. Spend a day marveling at what this interesting and majestic temple can offer you.
