Being an avid wanderer, Jaipur was always on my list. As we had planned to visit Ajmer dargah, we executed Jaipur trip too. We went via Shatabdi from Delhi- Ajmer 6 am and reached the destination on time. We had already booked hotels online for Ajmer and Jaipur as its always hassle-free and money saving. We stayed for a day and left for Jaipur the next day...We had booked a one-day cab to explore the forts, heritage structures, shopping, and eateries of Jaipur. Cost 1750 Rs from 8-5pm (if extra, money depends upon them. It also depends upon cab providers.” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rizwanuddin Rafiq says, “No one knows about the existence of Sam Shergarh Fort; The Same Shergarh Fort, is situated close to Shiksha Bhavan Chauraha after Chetak Circle, in the Loha Bazaar where a State Government's Model School is established. Udaipur city and the grand history of the buildings, palaces, temples, and fortification attract more tourists, the lakes and the beautiful garden surrounded by the Aravalli ranges, extremely pleasant. But Sam Shergarh fortification, which was an extremely important fortress, here no one knows about the existence of Sam Shergarh Fort.

The heritage of the Rathores, including arms, costumes, paintings, decorated period rooms, etc, is exhibited in the museum. The museum gives us an idea of the grandeur of the royal families of the past. The royal artists give your ears a wonderful piece of music generated from the traditional jodhpuri musical instrument like sarangi and flutes. One will surely love to hear this lovely music. ” Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sandeep Kumar Roy shares, “Majestic monument of our rich heritage; Expanse of Jaisalmer Fort is clearly visible from the town because of its location high on the hill. It is easily accessible but the road leading to the Fort is generally crowded because a sizable community lives inside the Fort perimeter. It is advisable to take a guide who will take you through various sections of the fort, explaining the history attached to them. It is a marvel and no visit to this part of Rajasthan will be complete without visiting this Fort.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ravi Raj shares, “A great piece of Ancient Indian Architecture - Visit during the sunrise or sunset; This 13th century built Sun Temple is a great piece of Indian architecture. The temple is shaped like a gigantic chariot along with carved wheels and pillars. It is a UNESCO world heritage. I have visited this place twice. It is really must watch location if you visit Odisha. You must have to look at the architecture, carving along walls and sculpture are great. If you love ancient Indian architecture, carving, sculpture then must visit this place. Carry water, sunscreen, sunglass, as humidity is high and you may feel the heat. Nov- Feb is the best time to visit this place. The nearby attraction is also there like Ramchandi Beach, Chandrabhaga Beach and Puri Konark marine drive.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Manas Manu says, “One of the good attractions in Bikaner Gajner palace is a heritage site and has now been converted into a 5-star hotel. However, they also offer you a small visit to the palace charging 250 INR per person for a 20 to 30 minutes visit. This includes tea/coffee and biscuits in the royal cafeteria. Its a beautiful palace built beside a lake and 35 to 40 Km away from Bikaner city. The visit is worth spending 250 as you get a feel of a royal guest. Staff is very professional and helping. You may also want to go in for boating in the cool breeze of the lake but its a little costly. Overall since there are very few places in/near Bikaner, this gives you a good and memorable experience. You can also plan a night or two here if your budget and visit nearby places like Junagarh Fort, Karni Mata temple and camel farm.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sunil Kunnoth says, “Charminar - The famous landmark of Hyderabad The Charminar is the most famous landmark of Hyderabad. It is a heritage site but not maintained well. You will love it more from outside the building. Once you enter the monument by climbing the spiral staircase, you may lose your interest. The staircase is spiral, so steep and there are no supporting rails to help you reach the top. Besides, the area is almost dark and very narrow.

If you don't care well, there is a chance of falling down. Keep your mobile flashlight on while climbing up and down. It is sad to see that a great historic building is totally maintained in a pathetic condition. The tourists have already done great damage by writing their names and graffiti on the walls. Still, the city view from the top point is amazing. You can have a good view of the close by Mecca Masjid and a remote view of the Golconda Fort, which is 10 km away. I don't think it is a must watch monument worth your money and time.” Read Full Review
