This Stupa at Sarnath is a testimony to a great age and empire.

HolidayIQ Traveller Indrajit Mohite says, “Pattadakal is a place near Badami. It is a place known for the remains of various temples. Visitors must visit the museum in Pattadakal so as to understand how the temples were rebuilt. It represents eclectic art done in the 7th and 8th centuries under the Chalukya dynasty.”

4. Itmad-ud-Daulah Tomb, Agra

HolidayIQ Traveller Geeta Anjali from Bhopal shares, “This was 'The Ahmedabad' before the present Ahmedabad came into being. There is a grave of the saint who is credited for founding the city of Ahmedabad. There is a lake at the back and more graves. The place at the back was full of bats and smelled foul. The best part is the lattice work in hall at the main building, which turns out very beautiful shadows during day time. Nice place to visit, though some distance from the city centre.”

7. Salim Singh-ki-Haveli, Pokaran
