Central India

4.5
A vacation in Central India allows you to combine temple tours with elephant safaris. This land of contrasts is well known for its ancient traditions, rich cultural heritage, exotic culinary styles, and vibrant street life. World Heritage-listed temples and ancient rock carvings at Khajuraho will satisfy anyone's desire for extraordinary art, while the mazy market streets of Bhopal invite you to observe the life in the state's capital. A visit to Indore offers the chance to see some landmark Hindu temples, but also to enjoy cool cafes and bustling bazaars. Extravagant 18th-century palaces, Mughal architectural masterpieces, historic forts, and pilgrimage sites abound in Central India.
