Heart of India Tourism - Holiday Guide to Central India & Khajuraho
Central India, the Heart of India, attracts people from far and wide to the vibrant lifestyle and colourful culture. From the wildlife sanctuaries to the erotic temples of Khajuraho, the heart of India provides visitors with an array of activities and adventures.

Agra Holiday Guide - Chhattisgarh Travel Guide - Madhya Pradesh State
Agra is a top tourist destination for one main reason, for one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the monument of love, the Taj Mahal. People from all around the world come to admire Agra’s architectural magnificence. Located south of Delhi, Agra has more to offer tourists than just the Taj Mahal, so rather than just doing a day trip, take a couple of days to explore. There are other World Heritage Sites to see, the Agra Fort and the Fatehpur Sikri which are well worth the stay.
Chhatisgarh is densely blanketed with forest where many tribes still inhabit. For a truly unique experience, explore Chhatisgarhs ancient monuments and temples, rock paintings, waterfalls and palaces.
Madhya Pradesh is landlocked between Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh and Maharastra. This ‘Central Province’ is home to beautiful diverse forests and the famous Khajuraho temples that are not to be missed.
