HolidayIQ Traveler Ashwin from Hyderabad says, ”I would say it is a great attempt to preserve Pondicherry history under one roof. It is not huge like other famous museums but is has enough stuff to keep you engrossed for couple of hours. Entry ticket was very nominal but cameras were not allowed. The volunteers at the museum are very particular about not touching any artefact, so beware. The best thing what I saw at the museum was a huge chart explaining world history and how evolution happened and where are we are today; it was amazing.”

HolidayIQ Traveler Amitra Kar from Chennai says, “It was a long cherished, well planned, minutely researched and wonderfully traveled holiday experience at Ajanta and Ellora. The murals and sculptures of these two famous World Heritage Sites are just unbelievably beautiful and surprising! What a rich and extraordinary culture we have and what talented craftsmen India had! These rock cut cave temples were constructed during second and seventh century, just by a tool like chisel and hammer. The paintings at Ajanta, even 1500 years later, are a pleasing treat to the eyes and extremely wonderful.”

HolidayIQ Traveller Ashwin from Hyderabad says, “Humayun's Tomb is located in the Nizamuddin area. It's a spectacular piece of art. It's a mix of Mughal and Persian architecture. The work on the walls is really beautiful. There is a garden and fountains on the tomb's periphery. People generally come here for picnics and to spend a casual Sunday with family. If you are interested in history or historical palaces then Delhi is certainly a box of treasure for you. Humayun's Tomb is undoubtedly a gem of Delhi.”

HolidayIQ Traveler Anshul Kalwadiya from Neemuch says, “ A boat journey from Gateway of India to Elephanta is enough to set you thrilled. You enjoy a view of indian Naval ships from distance. These Tatrakshak are giant and handsome. You feel amazing, exciting and super happy and then, things get better. You can have a toy-train travel from there on to Elephanta Caves. Once you get in there, there's no looking back. There are age-old sculptures of hindu deities in those caves. Not to forget, they are gigantic and auspicious. You must marvel at their artistic brilliance. I roamed and roamed in all those caves. There is a lake and garden too on the Elephanta Island.”
