I've only been to india once, and had time only for 4-5 places. Till today i've yet to see the taj mahal. I heard that it wasn't really built by that emperor or so the rumor goes.

You should go to Kerala, if you have the time. It's just not like the other places in India... Here are a few suggestions:

    you could go to Aleppey and try the houseboat rides in the backwater, with a stay in the middle of a large lake at night...(I've tried this)

    Try to visit Munnar, but don't go to the 'normal' tourist places. you could rent a bike and go to the hilly interiors (if you have the stamina Razz ) or you could ask your hotel to arrange a four-wheel drive jeep to take you to the world's highest tea factory. Try to go there in the evening, it's something you won't forget...(I've tried these too)

    If you've the money and street-smart guts, you could hire a taxi (careful!) and ride the coastline roads from Cape Comerin to Trichur exploring the beaches. Some pretty good ones are hidden in the villages...(Not tried fully yet, may be next time)

    Try to go to some cultural programmes, dances, concerts etc. Better try this in Trichur and Trivandrum...

Well, these are my plans next time I've the time to go visiting.
