Jaipur and Agra Day 5









Leave Jaipur for
Agra
by road (235 km.) en route
visit Fatehpur
Sikhri
. 37 km. west of Agra lies the ghost city of
Fatehpur Sikhri - an epic poem in red sandstone,
built by Emperor Akbar the Great in 1569 and
deserted 14 years later because its water supply failed. Its
glorious courtyards and palaces conjure up dreams of the
mysterious past. Buland Darwaza, the victory gate
looms 134 feet high. There’s the imperial Jami Masjid,
the tomb of Shaik Salim Chisti who predicted the
birth of Akbar’s son Jehangir, the Panch Mahal,
a strange building which resembles a Buddhist Temple, a cloistered
courtyard which was the Hall of Public Audience,
and the Pachchisi paved with black and white where the Emperor
played chess using slave girls as figurines.


Arrive Agra and proceed to hotel
City tour
of Agra: Visit the Taj Mahal - the greatest love
story ever told. On the death of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, in
wild extravagance, Shahjehan built her this memorial. 20,000 men
laboured for over 17 years to build this wealth of white marble
and precious stone. Visit Agra Fort - behind its
forbidding red sandstone battlements lie palaces that tell the
story of the Mughal Empire. The most impressive part of the Fort
are the Dewan-e-Am, where the Emperor sat on his
throne to dispense to his subjects, and the Dewan-e-Khas
where he received foreign dignitaries. Visit the tomb of
Itmad-ud-Daulah, father of Queen Nur
Jehan
- a two-storied tomb bearing mosaics in inlaid
semi- precious stones. Overnight

Khajuraho Day 7


City tour of Khajuraho Temples-
Khajuraho was
the capital of the Chandela kings and its temples were built in the
short span of hundred years, from 950-1050 AD. Most of them were
destroyed by Muslim invaders. Adorned with exquisite sculpture, only
22 temples remain of the original 85. They are the strange works of a
long dead people. Khajuraho’s temples are covered with hundreds of
sculptured figures - a galaxy of gods and goddesses, beasts and
serpents, and a multitude of erotic couples which represent a paean
to life, to love and to joy. The most famous are the Kandariya
Mahadev, the Chaturbhuj, the Paraswanath and the Ghantai - the summit
of Hindu sculpture: voluptuous forms; human and divine, throbbing
with life and sublime in expression.

Varanasiv Day 8











The time to see the ghats is early dawn when out of the morning
mist, forms descend the steps, their numbers increasing by the
minute until a solemn silent multitude, lit by the sun’s first
rays, moves in the same direction to immerse itself in the holy
stream and to salute the sun. During this particular sightseeing
no monuments are visited. See the Bathing Ghats,
Cremation Ghats, The Gyanvapi Mosque
built in the 17th century when the fanatical Emperor Aurangazeb
pulled down the original Vishwanath Golden Temple
and on its site raised a mosque. After the boat ride visit the
Golden Temple and walk through the narrow lanes
of Varanasi.


Sightseeing of Varanasi - (3 hours) During the
30 km. drive you will see the Bharat Mata Temple,
dedicated to Mother India, which, instead of gods and goddesses,
houses a relief map of India carved out of marble. Emperor
Aurangazeb’s Mosque
built in the 17th century on the
site of a Hindu Temple. The rear of the mosque reveals specimens
of the ancient temple art of India. Vishwanath Temple
(Golden Temple)
erected by Rani Ahalyabai Holkar of
Indore in 1776. The shikharas of the temple are gold plated. Visit
Varanasi Hindu University, a great seat of
oriental learning. It started as a centre of education in
Sanskrit, Indian art, culture and music. Visit the Durga
(Goddess of Power) Temple
popularly known as the Monkey
Temple
because of hundreds of monkeys in the courtyard


Excursion to Sarnath-
Sarnath, 10 km. from
Varanasi - (3 hours) The Buddha preached his first sermon to five
disciples at the Deer Park here, enshrining the principals of his
teaching into laws. The Dhamek Stupa marks the
location of a once resplendent monastery. A large complex of
ruined monasteries cover the area north of the stupas. Some of the
buildings belong to the Kushan and Gupta period. The first monk
communities probably settled here in the 3rd century BC. Near the
Dhamek Stupa is a new monastery built by the Buddhist
Mahabodhi Society
. The major events of Buddha’s life
are depicted here in wall paintings by a Japanese artist. Sarnath
has an interesting archaeological museum which has preserved the
famous Sarnath pillar whose capital forms India’s
national emblem.
