Where else can it be other than Kerala!

Though the backwaters of Kumarakom and Alleppey are very famous, one can find an equally picturesque location in many other parts of Kerala.

This resort, Aquasserenne, is on the Paravur lake in Kollam district.

Khuldabad is where the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb was buried in a modest tomb. Khuldabad is also famous for the Bhadra Maruti temple. It also houses the tombs of the first three Nizams and a handful of Muslim saints. The town is only a few kilometers from Ellora and can be covered in the same trip from Aurangabad.

On the way back to Aurangabad, we stopped over at a resort with a Rajasthani theme for lunch.
