Temple Tiger of North India and Nepal tour is an ideal combination to experience two different cultures having many similarities within themselves. In the first part of this tour we experience India from its most beautiful side as travellers are fascinated by the glory of Rajputs of Rajasthan, highlights of Mughal architecture in Agra, magnificent palaces and most famous Hindu temples in Khajuraho as well as by scenic villages with colourful dressed people of North India. One of the highlights of our tour in North India would be in Varanasi where we have a Boat ride on the holy river Ganges and observe the rituals performed by Hindu devotees in the early morning. In the second part of the tour we explore Nepal with complete dedication. Nepal is the only Hindu kingdom where middle age traditions and culture are still alive. The Kathmandu Valley, which is the cultural and political centre of Nepal, is magnificent for its wealth of unique temple.
