Top 10 Travel Destination in India

India, is a land of many diverse cultures and languages and is full of many surprises. It has many tourist places to visit in India that are worth your time. Here’s a list we have created to help you decide the 10 best destinations to travel in India!

Agra, Uttar Pradesh

1. Agra, Uttar Pradesh

The magical lure of the Taj Mahal makes Agra an essential stop on India’s Golden Triangle tourist circuit. But it’s by no means the only attraction — the massive red sandstone Agra Fort and the stirring Akbar’s Mausoleum are both worth a visit, as is Kinari Bazaar for everything from clothes and shoes to spices and marble curios. Don’t miss the city’s signature sweet petha (candied ash gourd).

2. Amritsar, Punjab

Pay your respects at the serene Golden Temple, Sikhism’s most revered shrine, and then visit Jallianwala Bagh, a poignant reminder of India’s freedom struggle, part of which is also evocatively captured at the nearby Partition Museum. Later, head to Amritsar’s old-city bazaars to gorge on parathas and kulchas (assorted flatbreads) at one of the many dhabas and top it off with a tall glass of creamy lassi (sweetened yogurt drink).

Where to stay Built around a colonnaded mansion, Welcomhotel Amritsar blends old-world charm with sophisticated facilities.

3. Manali, Himachal Pradesh

Manali is a picturesque hill station in North India surrounded by forests and majestic mountains with the River Beas flowing through it. Visit the 16th-century Hidimba Devi Temple and then saunter down Mall Road to shop for local handicrafts and curios. Manali is also a good base for many adventure activities such as trekking, rafting, paragliding and skiing.

Where to stay Book a cosy stay at Urvashi’s Retreat, which offers chalet-style rooms and traditional Himachali food.

4. Jama Masjid, Delhi

India’s capital city is steeped in history. Mughal-era architecture — including the Red Fort, Humayun’s Tomb, Jama Masjid and Qutb Minar — rub shoulders with colonial-era parliament buildings. From the chaos of Chandni Chowk and Connaught Place to the serenity of Lodhi Garden and Sunder Nursery, the multiple worlds of Delhi collide and coexist, held together by some of the best food you’ll find in India.

Where to stay A luxurious urban oasis with an outstanding spa, the Lodhi brings much-needed respite to the heart of Delhi.

5. Charminar, Hyderabad

The Charminar is located in the heart of Hyderabad. It is a bustling marketplace that has many shops and stalls around. It is located at an intersection through which the Port of Machilipatnam can be reached, and this makes the location of the Craminar an important trade route.

According to history, the entire city of Hyderabad was built around the Charminar, making the structure’s location all the more significant. The Charminar was built in honor of Queen Hyder Mahal and the city was named after her. There has been some confusion about Charminar is located in which state of late after the state of Andhra Pradesh was divided into AP and Telangana. The Charminar now lies in Telangana and is no longer in Andhra Pradesh.

Charminar is very important to the city of Hyderabad as it is in the heart of the metropolis. It is a busy business district, and it is also a monumental structure that everyone recognizes. If you are planning to visit Hyderabad, ensure you plan a trip to this landmark location where you not only can see and savor the architecture and history but also find the best food in the city.

6. Bangalore, Karnataka

One of the major cities in South India, what Bangalore lacks in big-ticket attractions it makes up for an eclectic eating, drinking, and shopping scene. Malls abound, as do craft breweries, restaurants, and cafés, especially in cool districts such as Indiranagar and Koramangala. The “Garden City” also has plenty of green respite, be it Cubbon Park, Lalbagh Botanical Garden, Lumbini Gardens, and more.

7. Chennai, Tamil Nadu

Despite its cosmopolitan garb, Chennai remains a traditional city, dotted with multiple rainbow-colored temples — Kapaleeshwarar Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, is one of the most popular. Swing by the Government Museum to see a superb collection of South Indian bronzes and then take a sunset promenade along Marina Beach, the world’s second-longest urban beach; don’t miss sampling bajji (vegetable fritters) from one of the shacks.

Where to stay The palatial ITC Grand Chola is home to Avartana, one of the best southern Indian restaurants in the country.

8. Mumbai, Maharashtra

The most cosmopolitan city in India, Mumbai is home to heritage architecture such as the Gateway of India, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, Banganga, Khotachiwadi, and more. Most of the action revolves around the cultural and art precinct of Kala Ghoda and the cool neighborhood of Bandra, with its trendy bars and restaurants. Don’t miss a promenade along the iconic Marine Drive as you gaze upon the Arabian Sea.

Where to stay Book a room in the heritage wing of the Taj Mahal Palace.

9. Goa

Possibly the most popular destination in India, Goa is all about sun, sea, and sand. Panaji’s Latin quarter of Fontainhas, with its Portuguese architecture, eclectic cafés and boutiques, and grungy bars, is a must-visit. Don’t miss the glorious 17th-century Church of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception and the quirky Mario Gallery dedicated to one of India’s most beloved cartoonists, Mario de Miranda.

Where to stay The beachfront Taj Holiday Village Resort & Spa has 142 terracotta-roofed suites and villas spread over 28 acres of landscaped gardens.

10. The backwaters, Kerala

An hour along the Malabar Coast from Kochi by train, Alappuzha (which everyone still calls Alleppey, its old British name) is the place from which most cruises set off onto Kerala’s backwaters: a maze of increasingly narrow rural canals bursting with birdlife and local colour. The best way to explore is by floating along and staying overnight in houseboats, stopping for refreshment at toddy shops or to photograph the prettiest paddy fields. Best of all, charter a smaller craft for several days so you can escape the main hordes.

Where to stay Ayana Houseboats’ two-person vessel makes stops upon request and serves zesty Keralan cuisine.
