Tour Overview

After a classic introduction to India, explore the country from a more unique vantage point. Let Yampu guide you to some of the country’s most beloved ancient temples; cruise through a sacred city on the Ganges River; stroll through the immaculate greens of the Garden City and admire in awe at the brilliant temples of southern India. End your tour of India relaxing on the tropical beaches of the Indian Ocean.

Khajuraho is most well known for its Western Group of temples whose bands of sculptures wrap around their edges depicting numerous erotic images of celestial nymphs, gods and goddesses. With numerous interpretations, these carvings have been depicted in the Karma Sutra and are in no way distasteful. Then travel to one of India’s Seven Sacred Cities; while in Varanasi you will also visit nearby Sarnath, the site of the Buddha’s first sermon and the birthplace of the religion. In Varanasi, you will have a chance to witness the traditional evening Aarti ceremony on the Ghats, cruise upon the Ganges during sunrise and explore this colorful city.

In Bengaluru, you will visit some of the city’s main attractions including the Bangalore Fort and the Lal Bagh Botanical Gardens. After a day spent in Bengaluru, you will be driven to Mysore to see the magnificent Mysore Palace along with some of the region’s finest temples. Finally, you will fly to Goa, which is known for its good food, wine and plentiful beaches, but is also host to various vanilla scented spice plantations, meandering rivers with excellent birdlife, centuries old cathedrals and white-water waterfalls. This is the perfect way to unwind from your exciting week of travel.

Tour of New Delhi

Here see the Red Fort, recognized as the most opulent Fort and Palace of the Mughal Empire. The fort is Shah Jehan's symbol of power and elegance, built behind red sandstone walls. Its main gate (Lahore Gate) faces Chandni Chowk; the perpetually congested avenue heading west from the Red Fort is filled with twisting lanes, small streets and crowded bazaars.


Also visit Jama Masjid (the largest mosque in India), Chandni Chowk, and the bustling and colorful market of the old city. Chandni Chowk was the commercial center of Delhi in the old time; see it come alive in the morning as the trading day starts, and Raj Ghat. Raj Ghat has a simple memorial to the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, marking the spot where he was assassinated by Nathuram Godse in 1948. A commemorative ceremony is held here every Friday. The first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Lal Nehru, was also cremated to the north of the memorial at Shanti Van (Forest of Peace). The area is now a beautiful park laden with trees. The Zinat-ul Masjid (Most Beautiful of Mosques) towers over the Raj Ghat.


After the metro ride continue to visit New Delhi to visit two monuments from Delhi's past - Qutub Minar and Humayun's Tomb. In 1199, Qutub-ud-Din raised the Qutub Minar either as a victory tower or as a minaret to the adjacent mosque. Humayun's tomb, which was built by emperor Humayun's wife, took eight years to complete and is regarded as an example of the early Mughal architecture. The emperor's wife, Begai Begum, was buried in the tomb and the structure is the first of its kind built in the center of a well-planned garden. The combination of white marble and red sandstone was a great influence on later Mughal architecture. It is generally regarded as a prototype of the famed Taj Mahal of Agra.


The drive meanders along the ceremonial avenue, Rajpath, past the imposing India Gate. At the center of New Delhi stands the 42m high India Gate, an Arc-de-Triomphe like Archway in the middle of a crossroad. It commemorates the 70,000 Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the British Army during the First World War and bears the names of more than 13,516 British and Indian soldiers killed in the North-western Frontier in the Afghan war of 1919. The foundation stone was laid by His Royal Highness, the Duke of Connaught in 1921 and was designed by Edwin Lutyens. The Presidential House is a palatial building built on an area of 330 acres with a private garden designed by the illustrious Lutyens, originally as the official residence of the Viceroy of India during British reign, is now the official residence of the First Citizen and the Parliament House.


Note: Yampu recommends an optional tour (price not included) to enjoy a fine dinner at the Veda Restaurant, a lavishly designed nouvelle cuisine curry house that offers a fusion of traditional Indian food with a modern spin. A second option is a visit to Akshardham, a unique, yet stunning monument that boasts 234 elaborately carved pillars, 9 decorative domes, 20 quadrangled shikhars (towers of Hindu architecture), stone elephant sculptures, and 20,000 murtis (Hindu images portraying Divine spirits). Please inquire with a Yampu travel consultant for more information.

Delhi - Jaipur

Drive approximately 3-4 hours to Jaipur. Upon arrival check in to the hotel and be free to explore at leisure. In the evening, journey to the Amber Fort for a sound and light show to cap off the day.


The Amber Fort was originally built by the Meenas in the town they consecrated to Amba, the Mother Goddess, whom they knew as Gatta Rani or Queen of the Pass. Built over the remnants of an earlier structure, the palace complex which stands today was commenced under the reign of Raja Man Singh, Commander in Chief of Akbar's army and a member of the Emperor's inner circle of nine courtiers, in 1592. The initial structure of the fort was entirely completed by his descendant, Jai Singh I. Amber was modified by successive rulers over the next 150 years, until the Kachwahas shifted their capital to Jaipur during the time of Sawai Jai Singh II.


The sound and light show at the Fort was scripted by the noted lyricist and filmmaker Gulzar for which superstar Amitabh Bachchan will lend his baritone. The one-hour show, which will be in English, will blend the visual splendor of a light show with a gripping historical narrative surrounding the Amber Fort's history.

After feeding the elephants, enjoy a welcome drink and face towel. The guests are seated on the cushioned seat (2 adults on each elephant) and sent on a picturesque track following a local tribal guide passing through a private jungle area surrounding the camp, as the sun sets over the hills passing by village hutments, fields, a medieval fortress lit up by flame torches – mashaals (at night) until arrival at the camp situated in the middle of the forest to a grand welcome.

Tour of the Taj Mahal

This morning, journey to one of India's national treasures, the Taj Mahal.


The area around the Taj Mahal is a protected area and the parking is approximately one kilometer away from the monument. Here disembark and board battery buses to the Taj.


That magnificent monument of love – The Taj Mahal, was built by an emperor in memory of his beloved queen. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1631, and is believed to have taken 22 years to complete, with over 20,000 craftsmen working round the clock. The design and construction is said to be that of the legendary architect, Ustad Ahamad Lahori.


In the impressive Agra Fort, stroll through the chambers of this royal residence. Driving through the city, witness the local life and bazaars and the hustle bustle of everyday India. Agra Fort is officially recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The fort is also known as Lal Qila, Fort Rouge and Red Fort of Agra. It is about 2.5 km northwest of its much more famous sister monument, the Taj Mahal. The fort is often described as a walled palatial city and as the most important fort in India. The great Mughals Babur, Humayun, Akbar, Jehangir, Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb lived here, and the country was governed from here. It contained the largest state treasury and mint. It was visited by foreign ambassadors, travellers and the highest dignitaries who made history in India.


Note: Yampu recommends an optional tour (cost not included) to a showing of Mohabbat the Taj, a live show with a touch of Bollywood. This 80 minute presentation is a charming way to top off the day at the Kalakriti Auditorium. Please inquire with a Yampu travel consultant for more details.

Tour of Khajuraho

Today proceed to the Western Group of temples. Khajuraho was founded in the 9th and 10th centuries by the rulers of the Chandela Dynasty, and influenced by Tantrism. Eroticism becomes a theme of philosophical interest and the aim is sublimation of sexual relationship in the sexual act or "Maithun", women being regarded as the incarnation of the divine energy or "Shakti". It is also possible that the carvings of Khajuraho were influenced by "Kama Sutra", the famous treatise on erotic arts, written by Vatsyayana in the time of the Guptas. The erotic love making images of celestial nymphs, gods and goddesses sculpted in delicate detail have caught the imagination of people from all over the world.


The Western group of temples The temples are divided into three groups, of which, the western is largest and best known. All but three temples, which are built of local granite, are constructed with hard river sandstone dug from the east bank of the Ken River, 13 miles to the east. None of the temples are enclosed, rather they are erected on high masonry platforms, each on an east-west axis. It is their detailed sculpture which gives Khajuraho its appeal and importance. Less than a tenth of it can be called 'erotic'. Numerous interpretations have been given for the erotic sculpture but there is nothing sordid about these inspired carvings showing beauty and voluptuousness of the female form. Most of the temples are 'banded' by horizontal panels of statues. The purvasins, or divine ladies, are shown engaging in commonplace human activities such as having a bath, getting dressed and applying makeup. Figures of Lord Shiva often protruded from the band. The long frieze with scenes of battles, processions and hunting that rind the base of the Lakshmana temples are some of the best examples of narrative sculpture.


Afterwards, enjoy the remainder of the day at leisure.

Khajuraho - Varanasi

Enjoy a morning at leisure in Khajuraho before transferring to the airport for a flight to Varanasi.


Upon arrival in Varanasi, transfer to the hotel. In the afternoon, embark on an excursion to Sarnath, 10 km from the center of the city. Sarnath symbolizes the birth of Buddhism, as it was here that Buddha revealed his doctrine and founded his monastic community. The museum at Sarnath is amongst the most important in India and contains carvings representing a whole range of styles - archaic, the Mathura School, Gupta, past Gupta and Medieval - covering work of sculptors from the 3rd century B.C. to the 12th century A.D.


After the tour of Sarnath, embark on an evening tour of the city.


Situated on the west bank of the Ganges, Varanasi extends from the riverbank ghats back to a winding maze of picturesque alleys overlooking tall houses and temples. The city is a center of education, arts and crafts, and has a vast repertoire, from silver, brass, and copper artifacts to perfumeries and trinkets. Varanasi is also the holy city of India, and is also known by the name of Kashi and Benaras. Kashi, the city of Moksha for Hindus for centuries, is known for its fine quality silks, "paan", Benares Hindu University and Avimukta of the ancient days. The city is the most popular pilgrimage point for Hindus, as it is one of the seven holiest cities.


After a fascinating city tour, visit Ghats of Ganges to experience evening aarti. Aarti is the Sanskrit word for homage or devotion. The aarti, or offering of the lamps, is observed at certain hours of the day and night to invoke the gods. It is believed that the gods physically present themselves before devotees at this ceremony. The lamps are revolved before the idols in a clockwise manner along with the chanting of hymns. This recitation is accompanied by drums, blowing of the conch shell, and tolling of the temple bells. At the end of the aarti ceremony, the priest takes a handful of water which he revolves around the god's idol. This is to pacify Agni (the Fire God), who is pressed into service in the form of the wick lamp. The lamps themselves are charged with this "Presence" and after the ceremony, devotees collect the fumes and smear their faces with its aroma.

Tour of the Bangalore Fort

Begin with a morning tour of the city that will lead to the Bangalore Fort.


Vidhan Soudha was built in the year 1954 is one of the major centers of attraction in Bangalore. The architecture of the building is based on the neo Dravidian style and it presently houses the Legislative Assembly of the state of Karnataka. The building also houses a part of the Karnataka secretariat.


Lal Bagh Gardens' name has been given to it for the wonderfully bloomed red roses that remain blooming all through the year in this garden. The garden has also a collection of famous Botanical species.


The Palace of Tipu Sultan is an imposing structure. The construction of the palace was started by Hydar Ali Khan, but he died the very next year. His son, Tipu Sultan undertook to complete the palace and this work was done by 1791. Right from its exquisitely carved pillars to its massive beams to its elaborate ceiling, Tipu Sultan's summer palace is all in wood.


The Bull temple is one of the prominent landmarks of the city. Dedicated to Nandi, the mount of Lord Shiva, the Bull temple was built by Kempe Gowda in the 16th century. The majestic structure of Nandi, 15 feet tall and over 20 feet long, has been carved out of a single granite rock. Legends abound regarding the origin of the magnificent bull carved in a crouching position. The surrounding area of the temple was inhabited by groundnut growing farmers and a bull used to graze on the flourishing groundnut crop. Enraged at the loss caused by the bull, a farmer hit the bull with a club which was transformed into a stone. Stunned by this event, the worried farmers built a temple to appease.

Mysore - Bengaluru

Today, drive back to Bengaluru. En route, visit Sriranganathaswamy, an island palace on the Kaveri River.


Srirangapatnam is an egg-shaped island formed by the two subdivisions of river Cauvery. It is located in the district of Mandya. The whole of the town is surrounded by the River Kaveri and resembles an island. The town has historic, cultural and religious importance. History says that Lord Buddha visited and remained on one of the islands near Srirangapatnam.


The town got its name from the celebrated Ranganathaswamy temple. This temple dominates the town which is the reason that Srirangapattana is one of the most important Vaishnava centers of South India. In the 9th century the temple was built by the rulers of the Ganga dynasty.


The existence of the Kaveri river is regarded auspicious. The Paschima Vaahini division of the Kaveri at Srirangapattana is considered to be sanctified. It is here that the pious come from far and wide to submerge the ashes of the dead soul and perform obeisance to their antecedents in these waters.


Srirangapatna was the capital of Hyder Ali & his son Tipu Sultan. In the 18th century the Marathas assaulted Srirangapatna. Hyder pulled back the Marathas and thus saved the Kingdom. But in the year 1799 Tipu triggered a furious battle with the British, where he fought bravely but ultimately succumbed to British forces.

Would highly recommend your services to friends & family

Local Guides – All three guides were superb. Very knowledgeable, respectful, communicative, personable and great with kids & family. Transportation – Both very good, cautious drivers always made us feel comfortable (and safe). Both patient and punctual.Hotels – All Taj hotels were top notch & would highly recommend. Marari was unique & fun but would not recommend for those who prefer luxurious accommodation; we really enjoyed the natural environment however. Houseboat was also great! Restaurants – All Taj hotels had excellent food. To avoid illness would stick to hotel food in the future. How would you rate your whole trip? Excellent for education. Great overall experience. Was very happy with Yampu itinerary and ease of everything. General Comments – Would highly recommend your services to friends & family.
