  • Khajuraho-stopped by on the way to jancy. Two of the Raj Mahal and Jehangir Mahal Palace. Made to welcome visiting Mughal Emperor Jehangir Mahal, Raj Mahal is of kings ruled this area so to speak is the Guest House. Feel the greatness of the financial power of the Kings of this earth to end up making a special Palace for the emperor. Because the Palace is located on a small hill on the overlook area.

  • Must see the light & sound show in evening, during day enjoy the history of the fort and temple. One can also enjoy the river side depending on season. 
  • Until I met far not all attractions of India, this Fort has on me the most grandiose impression. Minimal restoration, thanks to the good preservation of the original construction allows you to plunge into the atmosphere of the 16 century and feel the life of the imperial dynasty. Available many nooks and crannies, turrets, balconies with low peril'cami (scary enough to be there), which offer simply stunning aerial view of the River (I think her name Betua) and adjacent surroundings. I can't even say what more-meadows, forests, or the kind of ancient buildings-there is everything to feel himself a King. One day a little. If you're lucky to visit this pacifying place again stumbled inside the Fort-Hotel Sheesh Mahal, to feel this historical place at night.
