Mine is Chitrakoot in M.P... it's not such a massive secret but it's certainly off the beaten track. Incredible spot... What's yours?

Maradeo Caves at Pachmarhi - been there twice and I am sure I will be going there again when my son starts studying a bit of history of man's evolution.
Another place I loved was Menal in Rajasthan

Its Maradeo Caves.

You are right in the sense that there is a Mahadev Caves as well in Pachmarhi which is visited by a lot of tourists.

What I am talking about is a very less frequented place and holds immense importance in the history of mankind.
Some of the best prehistoric rock paintings (more than 10000 years old) in the region are at the Maradeo Cave which is almost inside the Satpura Tiger Reserve some kms off Pachmarhi.

Ok I just remembered another place which I liked very much; not because of its grandeur or magnificence, but because of the environment and circumstances in which I went there.

Its the Mandalgarh fort in Rajasthan.

The fort is in a totally dilepidated state and I didnt see any maintenance being done by the ASI. When we reached there it was dusk and it was just me and my parents. A couple of locals warned us not to go inside as there can be wild animals who have made it their home. But my parents were too brave and thought of taking the risk; maybe because they were both historians/archaeologists and hence could not deprive themselves of this spectacle. All through my dad and mom narrated the history of the fort and its kings and how they fought. I cant describe the feeling of being in an abandoned fortress just before dark.

Another place I liked was an excavation site from the Indus Valley Civilization at a place called Ahaar near Udaipur.

Anasuya

Anasuya, in Chamoli district of Uttaranchal,
its a village which is reached after a 5 km trek from the road,
the trek is beautiful, and the village untouched.

Siddhpur, in northern Gujerat, is the place where wealthy global Dawoodi Bohra Muslims built their family mansions. Street after street after street of them. Architectural photography heaven. With no intended disrespect whatsoever, the mansions look like the vision of say, c19th Prague, that a Bollywood set designer under the influence of a powerful hallucinogen and a passion for pastel might have once had. The residents are justifiably proud of this unique cityscape, and were most welcoming when I said (truthfully) that I had come from Australia to wander the town. Now under attack from the 21st century and the modernising Modi government. Be quick.

Kelshi in Konkan, Maharashtra. 220 kms from Pune and Mumbai and it gives the feel of village life with a beautiful beach minus tourists.
