In the realm of architecture, Khajuraho holds a unique position!

On arrival this evening you are met and taken to your hotel for the night.

Early today you visit what is one of the absolute highlights of the tour: the Taj Mahal, built in memory of his beloved empress, Mumtaz Mahal, by Emperor Shah Jahan. This marble mausoleum is the greatest gesture of love known to mankind. It is breathtakingly beautiful with many precious stones used in its inlays. Timed to correspond with the sunrise, you have ample time to explore this memorial.
