"See the incredible ruined city..." India Favorite Tip by anzactwo

India General: 413 reviews and 330 photos

Favorite thing: See the incredible ruined city outside Hyderabad; rivals Carcassonne in France. The light and sound show is fascinating. I also thought the temple island off Bombay was extraordinary. However what is striking is the contrast between the glory of the past and the squalor of the present - real squalor!!!

Fondest memory: The warmth of Indian friends and acquaintances. I do not miss the stench and the filth, the horrible poverty one sees everywhere, the crowds, the maimed and the hungry, and I feel for the hordes of ragged kids in the streets begging for any scrap. India is the best argument for birth control I have ever seen,
