After a traditional English lunch at a local pub, survey the lesser-known site of Avebury. While Stonehenge is the most architecturally sophisticated prehistoric stone circle in the world, Avebury is the largest. Similar to other megalithic monuments in the British Isles, Avebury is a composite construction that was added to and altered during several periods.

The Great Pyramid, 700 feet long on each side, is Egypt’s largest and represents an astonishing structure completed more than 4,500 years ago. Approximately 2.3 million blocks of stone were cut, transported, and assembled to create the 5.75-million-ton marvel.& Its four sides are accurately oriented to the cardinal points of a compass.

Over time, however, Petra was largely forgotten until the 19th century.

During a guided tour, explore elaborate tombs, monuments and religious high places. Along a wide path known as the Bay Al Siq, observe the Obelisk Tomb, a structure that stands as testament to the rich history and cultural heritage of the region. Step inside to discover a resting and dining hall with three benches once used for feasts to honor the dead. Stairs lead to burial halls with interesting light and shadows for photo opportunities.

One of the finest examples of Mughal architecture in India, the Jama Masjid was created by Emperor Shah Jahan, who also commissioned the Taj Mahal.

This complex is one of the most outstanding examples of Mughal architecture, combining Indian, Persian, and Islamic influences.

Learn about the history of Jaipur and the dynasties that ruled it at this extensive complex.

The City Palace is an impressive collection of courtyards, gardens, and buildings. See structures from different eras, some dating from the early 20th century. It’s a striking blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture, with surfaces adorned by carvings, silverwork or opulent textiles.

Within the lavish Diwan-i-Am (Hall of Public Audience) is an art gallery. Exhibits include a copy of the entire Bhagavad Gita handwritten in tiny script, and miniature copies of other holy Hindu scriptures, which were small enough to be easily hidden in the event that zealot Mughal armies tried to destroy the sacred texts.

Adjacent to City Palace’s entrance is Jantar Mantar Observatory, begun by Jai Singh in 1728, Jai Singh’s passion for astronomy was even more notable than his warrior prowess. Before construction commenced Singh sent scholars abroad to study foreign examples of such structures. The Jaipur observatory is the largest and the best-preserved of the five Singh built.
