NOTE: I had to put this tour at 7AM and that's because I have other tours running on airbnb. The experience can be scheduled anytime between 8am to 5pm. This means by 5:00PM we will back in Agra. This tour is ideal for those of you who plan to spend more than just a day in Agra. If you like architecture, history, off the beaten track places then you would thoroughly enjoy this tour. During this tour we will be visiting three Hindus temples (6th to 10th century) within two hours driving distance from Agra. I have named them 'The Bateshwara Temple Circuit' which comprises of Bateshwara Temples (ruins like Angkor Wat in Cambodia), Garh Padhavali (carvings) and Mitawali (inspired the design of the Parliament House in Delhi). The temples are devoid of mass tourism. The area had a bad reputation for bandits but they are long gone leaving behind some incredible Indian history and architecture. I will pick you up from Agra at 7am (summer), winter timings (nov - feb) are dependent on fog on the highway. Our first stop will be the Bateshwar Temple ruins followed by Garhi Padhavali and finally Mitawali temple.
In my previous life I must have been a Chambal native, probably even a daku (dacoit / bandit) - This is what my friends jokingly compare me to knowing my passion for all things Chambal (the region aruound the Chambal River) - its natural and built heritage, people, food, it's not so glorious past but jaw dropping present. As a tour operator specializing in this region, I've visited this wild-wild west for the past 5 years (see my other tour) having taken several guests including journalists. My ancestors came from here and when not exploring India, you'd find me hanging out on the Chambal. For more photos, visit my Instagram handle: @totravelwith

Her skal du være
Bateshwara Temples are a group of 200+ temples dedicated to Shiva and Vishnu. I compare this complex to the Angor Wat temples in Cambodia. Some recently restored others still in ruins. Garhi Padavali is an intricate Shiva temple surrounded by a fortress. The entire temple is a crazy concoction of Indian mythology. Mitawali temple is on top of a hill. It's said to have inspired the design of the Parliament House in Delhi
