Delhi-Orchha-Charkhari-Khajuraho

By

We stayed with a friend there in real rural settings enjoying farm-fresh fruits and vegetables.
Khajuraho is 80 km away from Charkhari and we made the trip the following day.
Stunned by the beauty unfolding before us we wandered around the temples craning our neck unable to absorb all that is in the spread – amazing architecture, heights of craftsmanship.

गंगऊ बाँध और रनगवां बाँध – सौ साल पुराना छुपा खजाना

एल टाइप सी अजीब सी शेप लिए हुए विसाल डैम आपने आप में एक सुरंग सा था आर पार जो उसके मेंटेनेंस के लिए होगी शायद। जिसमे सैकड़ो खिड़किया थी जिनसे रोशनी ऐसे आ रही थी मानो हम कई शीशो में एक के गहराते  से माहोल में अपने अक्ष देख रहे हों।   वहां जगह जगह विदेशो से लायी गयी मशीने और उपकरण आज भी ज्यों के त्यों

There is nothing of significant interest or beauty to recommend Khajuraho as a building site and also there is no big population so some big fort nearby. Whatever be the answer the truth is that this isolated location helped preserve it from the vandalism of Muslim invaders. Due to the threat of Afghan invaders, Chandela kings forsook Khajuraho for their forts. Also all the religious activities were abandoned so that this should be kept away from the eyes of invaders. With the passing time forest covered this entire region.

With late entry in Khajuraho, though groggy eyed by early rising, we all walked with swift steps through the dusty, shrubby surroundings of the temple town of Khajuraho.

Experiencing the Heart of India

By

Hey there. I don’t know where to start. India has opened my eyes to a whole new culture I have never before seen. I’ve been born and brought up in Auckland, New Zealand, and often visit my home city Pune. However, this time, my relatives and I decided to visit the heart of Madhya Pradesh to get a historically and culturally rich experience. After having an initial debate on which places to go to, we came to the official conclusion of touring Khajuraho, Orchha and Gwalior.
