My family will come to visit me in the beginning of August for approximately two weeks. My mum has been to India twice but she isn't getting any younger. So we want to avoid long trips on bumpy roads and overnight train journies. My brother is 14 years old and it will be his first time. We will be accompanied by an Indian family friend.
Now the big point is. We still didn't figure out where to go! We thought about Kashmir, but I none of us has ever been there and with the current security situation I don't feel comfortable taking my brother there. The Manali Ladakh highway seems to be a long journey and flights from Delhi to Leh to be quite expensive compared to other domestic offers. Also the temperatures are a bit scary. Rajasthan involves lot of moving around and also I would prefer to show it to him when it has the real "desert feeling". Does anybody have any other tips? My brother is quite into culture, old architecture and photography. We wouldn't​ mind a bit of monsoon, but aren't super keen on it. Maybe there is a place we haven't been thinking of before?

It's all Greek to me, but Benglish will do

Not sure where your starting point is. How about Kolkata (for culture and exciting city life) followed by somewhere in the North East (perhaps Meghalaya, which has somewhat better roads than other neighbouring states). Your bro is into photography and architecture you say - so I reckon Kolkata would be perfect.

If you go by what your brother likes, go for rajasthan. Bikaner,jodhpur,jaisalmer and the haveli of shekhawati fit the criteria.
