The Khajuraho group of monuments has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and also considered to be one of the seven wonders of India.
Goa, on the west coast of India, needs little introduction. It is a land of swaying palms, miles of golden sands, lush greenery, churches, temples and a unique cultural synthesis of the east and west.
