Some of the must visit sites are - Gwalior, Indore

A Living Heritage of heroism: teeped in the splendour of its past, the ancient capital of Gwalior has yet made a successful transition into a modern Indian city, vibrant and bustling. A multitude of reigning dynasties, of the great Rajput clans of the Pratiharas, Kacchwahas and Tomars have left indelible etchings of their rule in this city of palaces, temples and monuments.

South of the fort lies the main market area, the Jayaji Chowk, which is the hub of the new town. The main tourist attractions are the archeological museum within the Gujri Mahal Palace; The Mansingh Palace, a delightfully whimsical building also known as the Chit Mandir or painted Palace; the Karan Palace; Sas-bahu temple and Teli-Ka-Mandir. About 120 kms from Gwalior lies the old summer capital of Shivpuri, which is surrounded by a pleasant lake and a beautiful garden.Excursions include Datia and Orcha, well known for their splendid temple architecture.



The city derives its name from the 18th century Indreshwar temple. Situated in the heart of the Malwa Plateau it was the base of the Holkars, former rulers of this erstwhile state. Indore, in fact, was planned and built by Rani Ahilyabai Holkar. Today, it is a throbbing, vibrant city coloured by its brave past. It is naturally endowed with a beautiful landscape and salubrious climate. Of interest here are numerous monuments associated with the Holkars.

What to See:
Rajwada: Two hundred years ago, this seven storeyed historical building formed the nerve centre of all trading activities. Even today it stands proud in the market place, a silent tribute to the craftsmanship of unknown artisans of centuries ago.

Kanch Mandir: The `Palace of Mirrors' is a quaint Jain Shrine, close to Rajwada. The attraction of this palace, as the name indicates, is in the myriad mirrors studded on the walls and the ceiling giving rise to multiple reflections..

Lal Baugh Palace: Currently this is the residence of Usha Raje, direct descendent of the Holkars, whose ancestral palace it used to be. Exquisitely constructed with great detailing, it reflects the royal taste of the Holkars.
