THIS TOUR TAKES you to eastern Uttar Pradesh and Awadh, that legendary centre of nawabi etiquette and culture. Be it cuisine, clothes, music and dance, Awadh and the nawabs were more refined than any. Lukhnow rapidly grew to be the cultural capital of Northern India. It even developed its own distinctive style of architecture. The buildings of the franch architect Le Martinere, the British residency and the Imambaras of the muslim nawabs are amongst the foremost examples of the diversity of this style. Further east, on the banks of the River Ganges lies the ancient, seemingly unchanged city of Varanasi, the holiest of cities for Hindus, its temple spires reaching upwards to the sky. Khajuraho is also renowned for its temples, which were constructed by the Chandela dynasty in the 9th and 10th centuries and are now part of a World Heritage Site, just as Shah Jahan designed the Taj Mahal for his beloved Mumtaz Mahal in the 17th century. It took 20,000 employees 12 years to complete one of the most magnificent buildings in the world.

The itinerary also includes Jaippur and Udaipur with their beautifully painted havelis and light, airy palaces. And though it does not linger there it also stops at the cosmopolitan capital of Maharashtra, Mumbai.
