The temple is preserved in such a way that despite the fact it being incomplete, it still serves as an exquisite example of temple architecture.

This place is notorious for its paintings which are created on the walls of the caves. Return to the hotel in Bhopal in the evening to spend the night.

The next destination inline is Sanchi. En-route, a stopover will be made at Udaigiri, 13 km from Sanchi.

Among all other ancient temples in India, Khajuraho has its own image and charm. It remains unique because of its generic history and genius architectural structure. However, most of these caves are in ruins, with only 22 left out of the original 85. The creativity of the architect and arty craftsmanship is highly commendable. For the night, you'll be accommodated at a hotel in Khajuraho.

Day 10: Khajuraho
Post breakfast, you'll be taken on a day's tour of Khajuraho. Khajuraho provides a different and unique style of architecture, distinct from the prototype of that era. Each temple is structured on a high masonry platform. Divided into three geographical groups - Western, Eastern and Southern, the shrines are a perfect example of the rich culture and heritage once inherited by the Rajput kings of Central India. Travel back to the hotel for a night's rest.

Day 11: Khajuraho - Orchha
Orchha will be your destination on day 11 of the tour. Once the capital of the Bundela Rajput chieftain, Rudra Pratap, Orchha stores architectural ruins of the empire. These include Jehangir Mahal, Laxminarayan Temple, and Raj Mahal. You will be accommodated at a hotel in Orchha for night stay.

Day 13: Gwalior - Padavali - Bateshwar - Gwalior

Later, you'll be journeyed to the beautiful and picturesque Bateshwar Valley, which attracts a large number of tourists every year. Night stay will be at the hotel back in Gwalior.

Day 14: Gwalior Departure
