  1. Meet on arrival at Mumbai International Airport Terminal and transfer to your prebooked hotel. Mumbai is the commercial and entertainment centre of India. The city also houses India’s Hindi film and television industry, known as Bollywood. In 1661, Charles II of England received the islands of Bombay as dowry when he married Princess Catherine of Braganza. The British government leased the islands to the British East India Company, and they made it an important port. Mumbai’s business opportunities, as well as its potential to offer a better standard of living, attract many migrants from all over India and, in turn, make the city a potpourri of many communities and cultures. Spend rest of the day at leisure.

The 29 Buddhist caves of Ajanta are cut into the steep face of a horseshoe-shaped rock gorge on the Waghore River.

The 34 “caves” – actually structures excavated out of the vertical face of the Charanandri hills – being Buddhist, Hindu and Jain cave temples and monasteries, were built between the 5th century and 10th century. The 12 Buddhist (caves 1–12), 17 Hindu (caves 13–29) and 5 Jain caves (caves 30–34), built in proximity, demonstrate the religious harmony prevalent during this period of Indian history.
