A monument is a reflection of historic times and important cultural heritage. It has artistic, historical, political, technical and architectural importance. Thus, preserving and restoring a monument or the old buildings is very important. In India, this tremendous preservation work is handled by ASI (Archaeological Survey of India), INTACH and some private trusts.
India, over the centuries, has been home to different cultures, beliefs and religions. Today we can see its reflection in our preserved monuments.
India has around 38 designated UNESCO World Heritage sites spread over different parts. We can also find centuries old architectural marvels in form of historic temples. Besides this, there are mighty forts, palaces and beautiful mansions.
With the growing need to make public spaces accessible to everyone, we can now see many monuments and its different sections connected using ramps. For a wheelchair holiday in India, we have carefully selected the monuments with access for wheelchairs.
Inside old forts and palaces there are narrow alleys and steep stairs so visit using wheelchair is not possible to every nook and corner. In such monuments, we take wheelchair to a best possible point from where you can get the best views and from there onwards our guides explain you in detail about the non-accessible parts.
During travel to North India, we include visit to different UNESCO World Heritage sites in Delhi (Qutab Minar, Lodi Garden), Agra (Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri) and Jaipur (Jantar Mantar). In Rajasthan we provide visit to many forts and palaces like City Palace and Amber Fort in Jaipur, Meharangarh Fort in Jodhpur and City Palace in Udaipur. In less travelled region like Shekawati, we provide visit of old mansions beautifully decorated with paintings and frescos. So, during travel with us, the mix of selected monuments, gives you the best impression about India’s history and its cultural heritage.
