Remarkable

Rated:

It's not surprising this place is a wonder of the world. So imposing, so well kept and so well thought of by the over friendly locals.

Visited on a culture trip

Rated:

Headed to india to take in a different culture. This was one of the places i wanted to go from off when planning the trip. It really doesn't disappoint. The locals were friendly too and many were offering their services as tour guides but i got by with just an online text guide found on google.

Impressive place

Rated:

Was expecting something good due to it being considered as one of the wonders of the world but it exceeded expectation. Such a grand place and a place that is held in such high regard by the local people. I visited with an Indian friend who is from the area and he was able to give me his knowledge on the sight but there were a few guides offering their service near one of the entrances.

A must visit for any sight seer. Amazing architecture and a very well kept UNESCO world heritage site. Brilliant visit. Friendly locals, our taxi driver dropped us off and waited a few hours for the return journey and all for a very good price.
