Heritage of India


Perhaps most famous for their religious significance, the holy cities of Varanasi and Khajuraho host multitudes of temples and museums as well as access to the Holy River Ganges. Journey from Delhi by air to explore the intricate temples of Khajuraho and then fly to Varanasi to discover a new aspect of your spirituality on this exciting 3-day tour.

 

Living with the great questions of birth and death, Varanasi has never bothered to record its history. Its beginnings are lost in the mists of time. It was there when Jerusalem, Beijing and Athens rose and it has watched great cities like Nineveh and Babylon be swallowed by the sand. It is one of the oldest living cities in the world.  Khajuraho is famous for its magnificent temples dedicated to Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu and the Jain Tirthankaras. These temples were built between 950 A.D. & 1050 A.D. and represent some of the most exquisite specimens of art and architecture in medieval India. Only 22 temples of the original 85 now survive.
