World Heritage Sites


Heritage pronounces the age old cultural, traditions and customs of a country. But the major aspect that live to tell the stories of the periods gone by are the monumental structures that witnessed each and every episode occurred during that time. World Hertiage sites include exquisite forts and monuments, temple complexes and historic excavated sites of India.

If Taj Mahal spells the heart warming love story of undying love, then Qutub Minar gives a glimpse inside the Mughal architectural grandeur; if Khajuraho temples are celebration of the myriad colours of life then Konark is a landmark as far as Orissan temple architure is concerned. All in all these world heritage sites are protected and preserved heritage sites of the India's living pastand a visual delight for the tourist.
