  • It was a dream came true visit for me. Thoroughly overwhelmed. Rope way trip was smooth. Felt very proud to experience that it is conducted very systematically n disciplined way. However, monuments can be preserved further better. Needs lots of restoration work.
  • One of the must go places in India. History lovers should take out at least a week's time to see the places. It is very vast and has got immense opportunity for further exploration. PLEASE DO VISIT!
