Must-visit Places In India

ParentCircle

India has always been a favourite with tourists for its diverse and beautiful tourist spots. The cultural and geographical diversity of India adds to its appeal as a tourist destination.

India has always been a welcoming country. In fact, Indians believe in a saying “Athiti Devo Bhava” that translates into ‘guests are like God.’ According to a recent 2016 Firstpost.com article, tourism in India has seen a remarkable rise in e-visa entries. From 1,10,657 e-visa arrivals in 2015, it rose to 4,34,927 arrivals this year — a whopping 293% spike.

India is home to the Taj Mahal – one of the seven wonders of the world. Built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal, this beautiful edifice alone witnesses a record number of visitors every year. Hollywood actor Leonardo Di Caprio had paid a secret visit to the Taj in 2015. Other celebrity visitors include Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts. However, the Taj is not the only tourist destinations worth marvelling at.

Down South, the backwaters of Kerala and the magnificent Mysore palace deserve a mention. As we travel up towards the east, Darjeeling with its world famous tea and snow-capped mountains is a must-visit. The famed Varanasi ghats and not to forget, the mesmerising beauty of Kashmir are other must-visit places.
