Every destination that you think is laden with some experiences which define the DNA of that place and ensure a holistic experience of that city or town. Likewise, this statement also stands true for the naturally charming city of Indore. Ruled and defined in the pages of history by the Holkar Dynasty, Indore has rich heritage and culture at its core which is a treat for everyone travelling to the city alike.

Talking of rich  heritage, when in Indore you cannot miss visiting the Rajwada or the Lal Bagh Palace or the Central Museum. You might ask why is that. Well, that is because it becomes imperative for you to explore the grandeur and royal lifestyle that was a characteristic of the dynasty that ruled the place for hundreds of years. Few of the finest structures of the time speaking of the opulence of the time, these ancestral buildings are adorned with several beautiful gardens and mind blowing architecture. These places are like live monuments that whisper sweet nothings in your ears about the lifestyle of the intriguing Holkars. If you want the gist of the history and heritage of the place at one place because you are somewhat of a lazy bum (don’t worry, who isn’t on a vacation!) then you have to have to visit the Central Museum to explore what the historic and pre-historic times have to offer in the case of this beautiful city.

If you are done with the historical dose and are looking for more to know what the city is all about, then several of the temples in the city is the thing for you. Be it the spellbinding Kanch Mandir or the Bada Ganpati, every temple in the city has a story to tell. The temples not only are a testament to the rich architectural background of the place but also gives away the depth of religious inclinations of this place. And this plays an important role in giving you a wholesome experience while in Indore.

The process of experiencing the city is incomplete without hopping onto a cycle rickshaw and exploring the city on your own. The narrowest of the lanes are accessible through this sweet simple mode of transport and gives you the essence of any old city in the country. Use Town Hall or Ghanta Ghar as your direction incharges and your ride will be gold and yes, the rickshaw-wallah will not ask for more money amazed at the fact that you know the city too well. Smart, right?

Well, all this will ensure that your vacation is an enriching experience for you. If you don’t trust me, try all this and then we will talk.
