Top 10 Tourist Destinations in India

SHARES

I have not done a top 10 list for a long time now, and with Summer Holidays on, I thought it was a good time to post this list – The top 10 tourist destinations in India.

India is very very diverse – probably the most diverse of countries that you will find on this earth. We have some of the Coldest places in Kashmir, A place that has highest rainfall in world – Cherrapunji, and also one if the driest places on the Earth – The Thar Desert. Adding to that – More than half of Indian boundary is home to beautiful beaches. And don’t forget that Northern part of India hosts Himalayan Ranges snow capped mountains.

Mix all this with different cultures and hundreds of Languages and Dialects – You have a got a potent mix of diversity. If you really think, I really am amazed that with such diverse people & geographies how do we operate as one single democratic country !

Anyways, I am digressing here. Let me now give you

The Top 10 Tourist Destinations in India

Agra

Taj-Mahal

Agra’s Taj Mahal is one of the most famous buildings in the world, the mausoleum of Shah Jahan’s favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. It is one of the New Seven Wonders of the world, and one of three World Heritage Sites in Agra.

Completed in 1653, the T?j Mahal was built by the Mughal king Sh?h Jah?n as the final resting place for his beloved wife, Mumt?z Mahal. Finished in marble, it is perhaps India’s most fascinating and beautiful monument. This perfectly symmetrical monument took 22 years (1630-1652) of hard labour and 20,000 workers, masons and jewelers to build and is set amidst landscaped gardens.

Jaipur / Udaipur

Jaipur is also popularly known as the Pink City, is the capital of the Indian state of Rajasthan. Jaipur is a very famous tourist and education destination in India.

Jaipur 

Lots of people flock to Jaipur to view the various forts and monuments in Jaipur which reflect its glorious past. Tourism is a significant part of Jaipur’s economy. Some of the world’s best hotels are located here.

Forts & Monuments

  • Hawa Mahal
  • Amber Fort
  • Jaigarh Fort
  • Nahargarh Fort
  • City Palace
  • Jantar Mantar
  • Jal Mahal
  • Rambagh Palace
  • Chandra Mahal, The City Palace, Jaipur
  • Diwan-e-Aam, City Palace
  • Central Museum, (Albert Hall Museum)

Goa

Goa is Famous for its pristine beaches, infact 90% of all the tourism in Goa happens only for its beautiful beaches in Coastal Areas. Goa has two main tourist seasons: winter and summer. In the winter time, tourists from abroad (mainly Europe) come to Goa to enjoy the splendid climate. In the summertime (which, in Goa, is the rainy season), tourists from across India come to spend the holidays.

Goa

In 2008 there were more than three million tourists reported to have visited Goa, more than half million of whom were from Foreign visitors. Infact, many foreigners have made Goa as there home for its laid-back and relaxed lifestyle !

Kashmir

Kashmir was once called Heaven on Earth, and once of the most beautiful places in the world. However, in last couple of decades, terrorism has faded its charm – A place home to Himalayan Ranges.

kashmir

The State of Jammu & Kashmir has main three geographical regions known as “The Lesser Himalayas” or the “Jhelum Valley” (Kashmir), “The Inner Himalayas” or “The Indus Valley” (Ladakh & Frontier areas) also called “Trans-Himalayas”, and “The Outer-Himalayas” or “The Southern mountain range” (Jammu). The area of Jammu & Kashmir is 2, 22,236 square kilometers.

Kanyakumari

kanyakumari

Though there are several places of tourist-interest in the town and district, Kanyakumari is especially popular in India for its spectacular and unique sunrise and sunset. The confluence of three ocean bodies – the Bay of Bengal, the Indian Ocean, and the Arabian Sea – makes the sunrise and sunset even more special. On balmy, full-moon evenings, one can also see the moon-rise and sunset at the same time – on either side of the horizon.

Kerala (Backwaters)

Kerala-backwaters

Kerala, situated on the lush and tropical Malabar Coast, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in India. Named as one of the "ten paradises of the world" and "50 places of a lifetime" by the National Geographic Traveler magazine, Kerala is especially known for its ecotourism initiatives, Beautiful Backwaters and Alternative healing massages.

Old Delhi

 

Delhi, Capital of India has many attractions like mosques, forts and other monuments that represent India’s history. The important places in Old Delhi include the majestic Red Fort. New Delhi on the other hand houses many government buildings and embassies, apart from places of historical interest.

Qutub-Minar

The Qutub Minar, Red Fort and Humayun’s Tomb have been declared World Heritage Sites.

Ajanta Ellora

Ajantha-Ellora

Ajantha & Ellora are 28 – 30 rock-cut cave monuments created during the first century BC and 5th century AD, containing paintings and sculptures considered to be masterpieces of both Buddhist religious art and universal pictorial art.

The caves are located just outside the village of Ajantha / Ellora in Aurangabad district in the Indian state of Maharashtra.

Since 1983, the Ajanta & Ellora Caves have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Darjeeling

Darjeeling in India owes’ its grandeur to its natural beauty, its clean fresh mountain air and above all, the smiling resilient people for whom it is a home. Known for its natural splendor, Darjeeling’s best gift to its’ visitors is the dawn of a new day. The mountains awaken first with a tentative peeking of the sun.

darjeeling

A steep ride, five kilometers from Ghoom, or an invigorating walk up a steep incline, leads sun worshippers to Tiger Hill. The air is chilly with darkness and damp. To the east, a dull orange sun emerged painting the sky with brilliant strokes of magenta, gold, orange and fuchsia. The snow capped Everest, Kabru, Kanchenjunga, Jannu and other peaks slowly emerge from slumber to start a new day. The sun worshippers gasp at the magnificent sight.

Mysore

mysore-palace

Mysore is a tourism hot spot within the state of Karnataka and also acts as a base for other tourist places in the vicinity of the city. The city receives the maximum number of tourists during the period of the Dasara festival when festivities take place for a period of 10 days. One of the most visited monuments in India, the Ambavilas Palace (also known as Mysore Palace) is the center of the Dasara festivities.

    • Jaipur/Udaipur?… Well these two places are almost 400 km apart, and not at all similar. Plus you have mentioned only about Jaipur with that title. Either separate them or remove one of them please. Personally Udaipur and mount Abu should be under a single title and deserves a place in the top ten. Best places you will ever visit in India.

  21. Mytravelo.com (@Mytravelo)

    Whole of the India is beautiful. There are so many beautiful places like Goa, Shimla, Kullu Manali, Kashmir etc.. I Love My INDIA !

  27. It is a very good try to enlist top 10 tourist destinations in India, but it is critical to make a serial list or top 10 or 20 or like this. Person to person differ their test…………., so the list should be maximized …………

  28. north east has some really breathtaking natural beauty. What nature really is, you will get the answer by visiting northeast destinations.

  29. How much ($) money require while visiting and seeing these wornderful places/sites?

  30. Should have included Kullu-Manali in the place of old Delhi

  31. add some more information of these places on the root map

  32. east or west, JAIPUR is best…for tourism everything that a tourist wana see, jaipur can satisfy his high expectations b-coz jaipur contains everything, fort, lake, Palace, fascinating and beautiful monument, glorious past, paintings and sculptures, Art Centres, India’s Greatest Culture…..and many more that cant be explored through words I LOVE JAIPUR

  33. Friends, Bihar has given birth to all 4 religions. first capital of bharat. great people, good culture, richest state in india for natural resources. i humbly request you to post some for bihar…. future is for bihar.

  39. PARAMESHWAR TIPAGONDRA

    kanyakumari very fantastic place……..

  40. dear , visit gova , Kerala this places are more beautiful and they are following so much culture ..

  41. o maraaj g rehen e dao tusi golden temple nu ehna ch mailun nu ….oh apne sikha da itihaas ae na k ehna di tourist place…

  42. India is such a diverse country that it is difficult to choose just 10 places.

  43. Sir, I am Ahmad Faisal from Pakistan. I have some reservations regarding visit to India, that Pakistanies are arrested without any reason. Is this right, otherwise i am very found of to visit India specially Taj Mahal. Can you reply me on email about my reservations.

    • India is democracy and country is governed by people not by Army like Pakistan. So don’t worry you will be as free to go anywhere in India as a person from any other country. Dost hamara Dil bahut bada hai, hundreds of people from your country working in entertainment industry of India without any problem. But don’t do anything illegal in India…

  44. Kashmir is no doubt most beautiful place in the world.. Its a place which is whole and entirely beautiful..its every part..its villages, towns, cities.. roads,,trees..birds…. PEOPLE… breezes.. climate… mountains.. valleys… every inch of KASHMR is beautiful….. But kashmir belongs to Kashmiris only… But guests are always welcome… Guests from Indian and all over the world come here.. no doubt they enjoy but we too enjoy der company…. They love kashmir and we kashmiris Love them…..

  45. all are nice places. I seen four places. those are super. You done good job bro.

  46. tour to kanyakumari and kashmir is awsome experience, great.

  47. Hello, well I m from india but my cousin are coming from canada, they are coming second time, last time I took them to manali, jaipur, jodhpur, uday pur.

  48. Pradhan Kumawat

    Udaipur must be included….

  49. visit northeast daz beautifull dats my place.

  50. ajanta ellora-you r the only places left.Coming soon.

  51. Yury, As you mentionned that you are going to visit India with your wife for 6 days so I would suggest you manali or Auli to visit……..these places are very cool and you will definitely enjoy the tour……It would be better to visit one place completely instead you go for 2 or 3 different places as you have just 6 days….and if you want to visit 2 or 3 places so go to Agra and fatehpuri seekri which is about 35 k.m. from Taj mahal…..then you can go to jaipur and udaypur…..choice is yours……….good luck.

  52. I am agree that kashmir is the most beautiful place of our country but so far as the beauty and safety are concerned, there are some other places to visit in India which is safe and where we can find the natural beauty like : manali, Rohtang pass, dalhousie, kullu, simla, lahaul spiti , khajjar, nainitaal, mussorie, auli, dhanaulti, dharamshala etc…….where plenty of tourists goes every year so why these beautiful places are being avoided………….

  53. I really love to be in kovalam beach and Kanyakumari was amazing experience………

  54. every one can fight for 2 to 10 stage but dont fight for 1 ,first is only for taj whether u compare on international level……becouse taj mahal is logo or symbol of india…..somebody only knows india becouse of taj mahal…..tajmahal which is highest capital earning tourist palace in india. So please dont west ur time for 1st rank it will be alwys resrv.

  55. IT REALLY HELPED ME A LOT FOR MY PROJECT. THANKS BRO FOR THAT FASCINATING PROJECT!!!!………………………

  56. All are awesome . i am seen above three place and another is going to next year. good job bro

My only Hobby is this if u needs any kind of help in Bodh Gaya Bihar or India and u want to hang out with me in India any where. u please mail me at bodhgaya4india@gmail.com and send me message in Face Book. Your Private tour guide in India ……. Bye and Tack care. You’re Joh

  62. Well, Kanheri Caves in Sanjay Gandhi National Park is also a nice place.

  63. Nice list I agree with you. However, Kerala is not just famous for its backwaters. In addition to the backwater tourism, kerala is a hot spot for beaches like varkala, kovalam etc and hill stations like munnar, thekkadi etc. Major attraction of kerala is its wonderful greenery.

  64. ‘God’s own country’ Kerala is the best place in india

  65. It’s really gaild to know that we so to much visit or know about our country Nice oneeeeeeeeeeeee

  66. Hello Sir, Isn’t Manali a best place?

  67. Ok, since many of you are very familiar with India, I would like to ask for suggestions. My wife and I will be travelling in India in early August. However, we only have six full days. We will be flying into/out of New Delhi. The suggestions I have received so far have been New Delhi, Jaipur, Varanasi. I am not interested in seeing tons of temples, but want to see Indian culture. Considering that most flights are fairly short, we don't need to limit ourselves to only Northern India. I'm not interested in visiting lots of temples, but am interested in Indian culture, history, food, and shopping. Hyderabad has also been suggested. I don't want to visit more than three cities. All suggestions are welcome. This will be our first time in India. One last thing… the Taj Mahal/Agra is already covered (before the said six days). Thank you

    • Ask Julie. She traveled with her friend in India :)

    • Dhairya Bapodra

      Visit jaipur and than fly from there to hyderabad for roundtrip of two day in beteen for 6 days… Jaipur & hyderabad both got indian culture + history + shopping destinations You can get good genuine pearls from hyderabad( you required to check govt proved places)…. Similarly jaipur you will get best leather goods and indian clothes and even show-pieces…. In terms of history both places have amazing museums and heritage tourists places…

    • as u wud be landing delhi and you dont have much of a time i wud suggest that u visit agra n move to jaipur jodhpur jaisalmer, udaipur n back to delhi. In agra u wud c one of the seven wonder of the world, in jaipur & jodhpur u will be able to c the rich heritage, culture, history and food, in jailsalmer u will be able to see the sand dunes and the awesum sonar fort but it will be pretty hot during ur stay and udaipur (the venice of the east) it has loads of place to wud luv n then back to delhi . travelling too far extend wud not serve the purpose that u want as u want to enjoy the heritage, food, history and shopping.

    • Ok, so it looks like I will be visiting Kerala (Cochin) for 2.5 days, 1 full day in Jaipur, and 1.5 days in Udaipur. What suggestions do you have for Kerala? Flying in on July 31, out on 8/3.

    • Abhishek Verma

  171. Richardson Ward

    Hi there .. great post .. It is most interesting blogs i’d like to visit again and again .. I am looking forward to see more interesting content like this .. Now i agreed that India is one of the beautiful place in this world .. specially their hotels :)

  172. Ray Saurabh Nath

    Mr. Author: Arun Prabhudesai: I would like to draw your attention towrds this lin of your where you have posted top10 places to visit in India. I would like to tell you that you have acknowledge Bihar drawing more tourist than Goa than why can’t we see Bihar/Boghgaya as being top 10 tourist places in India. Please make some change here so that Bihar could improve upon its image and status as one of the best tousit places of this great Counrty.

  173. There are some here I wouldn’t rate among the top ten but everyone’s take on things are bound to be different. Goa and the Backwaters are okay but doesn’t deserve to be here. Kanyakumari, Mysore and Darjeeling are crap. I agree with Harpal. Golden Temple is truly special. Deserves to be here. No comments on Kashmir because I haven’t been there.

    • @Arvind, you must have not visited Mysore palace, from inside, one of the best art and architecture you can ever imagine. And it is the 2nd most visited place in India. Backwaters of Kerala are surely one great tourism efforts from people of kerala, they are world class, believe me and Kanyakumari i’m not sure why it has made up in top 10. The top 10 list is complete i feel with a little bit of debate left to the people to comment.

  174. How can you leave out Amritsar, the Sikh holy city where the Harmandir Sahib (Golden temple) is located. It recieves more visitors than the Taj Mahal. Go to Amritsar in Punjab, India you won’t regret it.

  175. A nicely composed and informative article. Though I wonder why Mumbai is not up there.

    • i like ol this places in india very much.. i wish i can roam here wid my dear ones . the best place is kashmir where i hav evere gone.! it was very enjoyable..! kashmir was a trip bto heaven for me..!!!
