Once the capital of the kingdom of Marwar, it is one of the most enchanting cities in India.

Legends and curses swirl around this mysterious stronghold, which also preserves old cannons and provides a breathtaking view of the city. The 16th century Achal Nath Shivalaya temple, dedicated to Shiva, is a tribute to the architectural grandeur of the Hindu religion.

Once upon a time, Hampi-Vijayanagara, located in central Karnataka, was the medieval world’s second-largest city after Beijing, and India’s richest, attracting traders from as far as Persia and Portugal. Hampi fell into ruins when the Vijayanagara Empire was defeated and pillaged by a coalition of Deccan Muslim sultanates in 1565. It is now a UNESCO world heritage site, visited by thousands of travellers due to its breathtaking temples, intricate sculptures and monuments, which give an insight into the splendour and architectural skills of the ancient Hindu kingdom. Leisure Activities: Some of the fun things to do at Hampi are taking a coracle ride in the nearby Tungabhadra river. These round cane boats have been a mode of transport here from the 15th century. You can also hire a bicycle and take the trail down to any of the interesting ruins, go bouldering or trekking. Some must-visits are Vijaya Vittala, the extraordinary architectural marvel with 56 musical pillars, which create melodic sounds when tapped delicately, the stunning Virupaksha and Krishna temples, the Royal Enclosure with the Queen’s bath and Lotus Mahal (palace). Anegundi, or Kishkindha, the capital of the Vijayanagar empire is a fine repository of neolithic history and prehistoric rock art, represented by Mourya Mane, a several-thousand-year-old Stone Age colony. You can visit the birthplace of Hanuman, the monkey god, or peek at the ancient elephant stable, where the city’s elephants were fed, bathed and trained for battle and other activities.

From time immemorial, the fragrance of sandalwood has delighted the connoisseurs of perfume. Mysore, India’s ‘Sandalwood City’ also known as the ‘City of Palaces’ is the cultural capital of the state of Karnataka. For nearly 6 centuries, the kingdom of Mysore was ruled by the Wodeyar dynasty, who were patrons of art and culture. An enlightened dynasty, the Wodeyars contributed significantly to the cultural and economic growth of the city and the state. In Mysore city, an ‘old-world’ ambience prevails. One can almost see the ghosts of years gone by, hear a faint battle-cry, the clash of weapons, or the boom of a cannon. Mysore being the cultural capital of Karnataka, is a great place to learn about the culture and history of the state. However, the main objective of the camp is to make a difference to the existing educational system by introducing creative learning methods to the schoolchildren, improving the facilities of the school, and creating awareness on environmental issues within the community. Gaining first-hand agricultural knowledge from local farmers, and intercultural exchange are some of the highlights of this camp. Mysore palace is the official residence of the Wodeyar family and was the administrative seat of the kingdom of Mysore for centuries. Built mainly in the Indo-Saracenic style of architecture, it houses a treasure trove of beautiful paintings and objets d’art, collected over the years by the royal family. Antique lovers will find it hard to budge from here, with such a visual feast at hand. At Mysore, Dasara is celebrated ceremoniously in October, with the warriors as well as the state fighting for the good, displaying the state sword and weapons. Richly caparisoned elephants and horses along with the goddess Chamundeshwari in her warrior form, dancers, jugglers, musical bands and elaborate floats parade before the royal family and bedazzled tourists from the world over. The Brindavan Gardens took 5 years to complete and lies adjoining the Krishnarajasagara Dam, which is built across the river Kaveri. It is spread across 60 acres, with an adjoining fruit orchard of 75 acres and has 3 terraces, with a topiary, gazebos and pergolas, ficus trees, foliage and flowering plants. However, the main attraction is the musical fountain which plays music synchronised to bursts of water and scintillating lights. In Hindu folklore, Mysore was plagued by the demon-king Mahishasura, a buffalo-headed monster. An ancient stone staircase of 1008 steps leads to the temple of the goddess Chamundeshwari, who fought and killed the demon, thereby liberating the city from his tyranny. Halfway to the shrine is a huge statue of a Nandi bull, carved out of a single piece of black granite. Hiking up this historic hill is a pleasurable experience, from the top of which lies a breathtaking view of the city of Mysore. In an interim period, Mysore was ruled by Hyder Ali and his son, Tipu Sultan known as the ‘Tiger of Mysore’, who fought vali
