Mandu, Madhya Pradesh, India

Perched on top of a pleasantly green, thinly forested 20-sq-km plateau, picturesque Mandu is home to some of India’s finest examples of Afghan architecture as well as impressive baobab trees, originally from Africa. The area is littered with Unesco World Heritage Site–declared palaces, tombs, monuments and mosques. Some cling to the edge of ravines, others are beside lakes, while Rupmati’s Pavilion, the most romantic of them all, sits majestically at the far end of the plateau, overlooking the vast plains below.
