Couldn't find a detailed map of northwest India in local stores, so I was happy to find this one on-line. We're traveling to India in Nov-Dec of this year, primarily to attend a wedding in Jaipur, but also to do some sightseeing. This map provides distances so we can estimate travel time, and also provides locations of some points of interest. We're using the map as we work with our travel agent, and have recommended it to other family members who will be traveling from other points in the US, all of us meeting up in Delhi.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
