Gallery: Alipura, India

I’ve spoken in a previous post about how much I enjoyed spending time in rural India, as well as the big cities. I spent two nights in Alipura, a small village in Madhya Pradesh, where I stayed in Alipura Palace. This beautiful old building has been partially converted into a hotel and has so much character! There were endless stairways and nooks to explore, and a roof terrace to watch the sunset over the hills. Walking through the quiet village and meeting lots of local people was a lovely experience.
