In the very heartland of India, is Madhya Pradesh, one of the most diverse states of India and it is this diversity which gives it the potential to fascinate and amaze. Madhya Pradesh is relatively undeveloped which means that infrastructure can be lacking in some areas, but the benefit of this is that it is less explored, the sights are less busy and in many of its destinations one can easily be transported back to the India of old.
Surrounded by ancient forts and the rugged Aravali Hills, Jaipur, Rajasthan's Pink City, is one of the most enticing places in India. Every aspect of Jaipur (The story goes that when Queen Victoria visited 1876, the maharaja painted the whole city pink hence its nickname) was originally meticulously planned when it was founded in 1727 by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh. Today it is one of India’s fastest-growing cities, showcasing ‘new meets old’, yet even in the most modern parts, ancient traditions remain.
Jodhpur, the “Blue City” is a much smaller and quieter town than Jaipur, yet its fort, The Meherangarh, the second largest fort of Rajasthan, has to be the most impressive and well preserved of all the state’s forts. A tour of its museum gives one a true sense of the regal life of the Maharajas, as well as the harshness of desert life. However, what adds to its mystique, are the stories and legends that have been woven into its history – whether true or not!
Set amongst rolling hills and shimmering lakes, beautiful views, and large open spaces, Udaipur is considered by many as the most beautiful and romantic city in Rajasthan. It contrasts with the creations of the Moghuls and the fortifications of the other cities of Rajasthan, due to its love of the whimsical and crafted elegance. It is also surprisingly quiet and traffic-free which gives it the atmosphere of a small town where it is easy to stroll around its winding alleyways, bustling bazaars, and tree-lined streets.
Delhi is a city that bridges many different worlds. It has seen the rise and fall of many empires, that have left behind a plethora of monuments commemorating the glory of bygone ages. Then there is Old Delhi, with its labyrinth of narrow lanes, lined with crumbling Havelis and housing India’s largest mosque; in contrast, New Delhi created by the British Raj comprises spacious, tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings. Then in modern Delhi, you will discover a city of shopping malls, world-class restaurants, fascinating museums and art galleries and a vivacious performing-arts scene. Whether architects or chefs, history buffs or teenagers,
Agra home of the beautiful Taj Mahal, the mausoleum built by emperor Shah Jahan for his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. On a moonlit night, the view of the ethereally white Taj by the silently flowing Yamuna is a sight that can inspire poetry. Yet as a city, it was originally, meticulously planned, built and nurtured by three successive Mughal emperors – Akbar, Jehangir and Shah Jahan, during the most glorious era of the Mughal Empire and has many other extraordinary monuments to explore once the Taj has been visited. Sikandra, Itmad ud Daula and the impressive Agra Fort an architectural masterpiece, built as a military fort, which was later converted into an opulent palace by Shah Jahan, who was later imprisoned there by his son Aurangzeb.
