Highlights
  • A well preserved and well maintained UNESCO world heritage site with historical significance dating back to 400 AD
  • Beautiful amalgamation of typically Mughal and Hindu architecture, considered to be one of the finest
  • Forget crowds, barely a soul in sight allowing you to soak in the atmosphere at peace (which other reviews confirmed as well, and it wasn't just our lucky day!)
  • An almost palpable sense of the bygone era through the many mosques, gateways, pillars and wells studding the area
  • A treasure-hunt like thrill since, for some odd reason, all you have to find your way around the numerous monuments scattered around, is patchy google maps and very vague signboards!
  • LONG jungle walks, which can be a bit eerie- especially when the wrinkly old guard uncle points you to an unseen monument at the end of that path, and monotonously says in true Ramsay movies style ' Nagina masjid ekdam jungle ke andar hai. Seedhe chalte chale jao'. But it has it's charm!
