The tourism spotlight doesn’t hit Madhya Pradesh with quite the same brilliance as it shines on more celebrated neighbouring Indian states, so here you can experience travel riches ranking with the best without that feeling of just following a tourist trail. Temples have some of the finest stone carving in the country and the region has glorious palaces, forts, mosques and stupas. And you chance of spotting a wild Royal Bengal tiger here are as good as anywhere in India.
