Here, we've encapsulated India in an itinerary that showcases world heritage monuments in Delhi, Agra and Fatehpur Sikri, the forts and palaces of Jaipur, Jhansi and Gwalior which survive to narrate tales of valour and courage; and Khajuraho which reveals the highly evolved thinking of its medieval rulers. To complete the Indian experience, take a walk down Varanasi's bathing ghats and be a part in the ritual that pays homage to the holy and benevolent river Ganga.

Varanasi is the holiest of Indian cities, a place where you can wash away all your sins with a dip in the sacred river Ganga . It is also a very ancient city, with historians setting the date back to 1400 BC. Its temples have suffered the wrath of the Mughals, especially Aurangzeb who had scant respect for other religions.
The bathing ghats in Varanasi breathe spirituality - 80 of these line the riverbank where devotees bathe. There are dedicated burning ghats as well, such as the Manikarnika.
Your morning in Varanasi can begin with a boat ride between Dasaswamedh Ghat and Harishchandra Ghat which would take almost an hour.
After lunch, make the trip to Sarnath, the site of Buddha's first sermon after achieving enlightenment.
Emperor Ashoka built a stupa and monasteries at the spot in the 3rd century BC. A decline of Buddhism and plunder by Muslim invaders in medieval times brought the city to rubble. Excavation by British archaeologists retrieved some of Sarnath's past glory, and today it is a peaceful suburb of Varanasi.
Return to Varanasi before dark to catch the glorious spectacle of the "Ganga Aarti" in the evening.
You can choose the Dasaswamedh Ghat to participate or observe the daily ritual of paying homage to the holy and benevolent river Ganga. The ritual starts after sunset, wherein large lamps are lit up and smaller ones swung to the beat of the 'mantras'. Devotees light lotus flower candles and set them adrift in the water.
Return to hotel for overnight stay.

Day 10: Varanasi - Delhi
Check out of hotel in time for flight to Delhi. Flying time -1 hour 20 minutes.
