Ajanta and Ellora, and other Attractions of Aurangabad, Maharashtra in India: e-Book

Ajanta and Ellora, and other Attractions of Aurangabad, Maharashtra

Go to Aurangabad even before you visit Agra

Astounding! This is the only expression I can think of to describe the caves at Ajanta and Ellora around Aurangabad in Maharashtra. These could only have been the works of those with special skills, an extraordinary sense of art and possibly some supernatural powers. The Taj Mahal should gracefully admit it is not the greatest monument built in India. Get set to be overwhelmed when you tour the caves of Ajanta and Ellora. What you get here is just a peek; even a tome cannot do justice to these wonders.

Think of camel fairs, and chances are you will head to Pushkar in Rajasthan. But hold on to your horses (or camels) for a moment: consider Bikaner, with its smaller yet far more enchanting version. And that is only one of the reasons why you need to be in this desert city.

Gir National Park, Gujarat

Last home to the Asiatic Lions

If you believe the true king of the jungle is the lion and would like to meet one, you can only do so at the Gir National Park in Gujarat. This is the home to the last of the Asiatic lions on the planet.

Of course, Gir has much more to offer than just lions. Allow your wishlist to expand beyond just lion sightings, and you will be impressed with the rich flora and fauna of the forest. Join me in my safari to see for yourself.

Bera, Rajasthan

Bera, Rajasthan

Welcome to Leopard Country – it is wild and free

Believe it or not: There is a village in Rajasthan called Bera, surrounded by forests where leopards roam free. Along it flows the river Jawai, with the Jawai Dam built on it. And the resulting beautiful lake is home to some of the biggest crocodiles you will ever see. These are not a part of any National Park or sanctuary; most people don’t know about it, not even Rajasthanis. You will not see any madding tourist crowds here – go wildlife spotting freely, but remember you are on your own here. With leopards for company. Come, let’s go big cat spotting.

Chambal Wildlife Sanctuary, Uttar Pradesh

Chambal Wildlife Sanctuary, Uttar Pradesh

Chambal has always been infamous for being home to some of the most notorious dacoits living within its ravines, and the image has not changed even as the gun-toting outlaws striking fear on horseback are mostly in the past tense.

And, surprise surprise, it is just over an hour away from India’s most famous touristic address: the Taj Mahal. Join us for the safari.
