India is a hotspot of tourism thanks to its vast history, myriad cultures, innumerable monuments, and diverse landscapes. If you are looking to explore the exotic country without the hassle of packing and unpacking at every stop, then Maharajas’ Express offers you the finest of India’s luxury packages to choose from.
These tour packages cover some of the most splendid landmarks of the nation that reflect the country’s glorious royal heritage.
Some of the main tourist attractions included in the packages are as follows:
Taj Mahal, Agra
One of the Seven Wonders of the World and arguably the most iconic monument of India, the Taj Mahal attracts tourists from all over the world. Commissioned by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in honor of his deceased wife Mumtaz Mahal, the mausoleum clad in white marble never fails to mesmerize visitors. The UNESCO World Heritage Site combines Indian, Persian, and Islamic architecture, featuring strict symmetry, plant motifs, and detailed craftsmanship. The mausoleum is located on the banks of the river Yamuna amidst the vast garden. The complex’s sublime design makes the monument appear imposing when first entering through the main gate but seemingly shrinks as you move closer.
Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur
Set atop a rocky outcrop overseeing the Blue City, Mehrangarh Fort makes for an imposing sight. With a name meaning the fort of the sun, Mehrangarh was built in the 15th century CE by Rao Jodha and is counted among the many top tourist destinations of India with its remarkable architecture, grand courtyards, splendid palaces, and museum. Exquisitely latticed windows, carved panels, and intricately decorated windows are among its renowned features. Trekking atop the mighty fort gives you an ideal vantage point of the bustling city of Jodhpur.
Amber Fort, Jaipur
Sitting atop a hill close to Jaipur, the imposing Amber Fort was commissioned by Maharaja Man Singh I in 1592. The mighty fort that oversees the Pink City like a sentinel showcases a fine blend of Rajput and Mughal architecture, boasting opulent palaces, splendid temples, and ornate gates. The UNESCO World Heritage Site portrays a picture of grandeur and opulence with its use of red sandstone and white marble work.
Ranthambore National Park
The Ranthambore National Park and Tiger Reserve used to be a private game reserve of Jaipur’s royal family. Though most well-known for tigers, it hosts a wide variety of wildlife like sloth bears, leopards, jackals, and more. The area boasts a diverse topography that includes thickly forested areas, rolling hills, crags, lakes, meadows, and rivulets.
Junagarh Fort, Bikaner
One of the most opulent forts in India, Junagarh gives you a peek into the lives of the Maharajas. Unlike most Rajasthani forts, Junagarh is not built atop a rocky mountain and has lower towers and ramparts. The complex houses many magnificent palaces that indicate the fort was built with luxury as the priority rather than defense.
Lake Pichola, Udaipur
Situated right at the heart of Udaipur, Lake Pichola is one of the oldest and largest lakes in the city built by Pichhu Banjara during the rule of Maharana Lakha in 1362 and later enlarged by Maharana Udai Singh II. The lake has four islands and is perfect for boat rides with scenic and serene views of the City of Lakes.
Cradled by the Vindhya mountains in Madhya Pradesh, the temple complex of Khajuraho is well-known for intricately sculpted walls that depict various aspects of life. The temples are divided into three categories based on where they are located: Eastern, Western, and Southern. Our Indian Panorama plan takes you to Western temples.
Located close to Agra, Fatehpur Sikri was built by the Mughal Emperor Akbar primarily using red sandstone but was abandoned due to the scarcity of water. The great city is enclosed by an 11-kilometer-long fortification interspersed with many gateways. The city combines Hindu and Muslim architecture, with many iconic sites such as Diwan-I-Aam, Diwan-Khana-I-Khaas, Turkish Sultana’s House, Daulat Khana-I-Khas, and Buland Darwaza.
