Top 13 Tourist Destinations in India [2015]

0

[Last Updated: 12th Oct 2015] We have made slight modifications in the list as per the changing circumstances. We have also added couple of destinations that we think should be mentioned here.

[divider]

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.

New Additions [2015]

Leh / Ladakh

Leh Ladakh
Leh Ladakh

The Ladakh capital city of Leh lies near the eastern parts of Jammu and Kashmir, on the crossroads of the historic “Silk Route” from Sinkiang to West Asia and to the plains of India. The humbling monasteries of Shey, Hemis, Alchi, Thikse and Lamayuru will nurture your spiritual needs, and the landscape of Leh provides for a number of adventure activities including mountaineering, white-water rafting and trekking along the Markha Valley.

Gangtok

Gangtok
Gangtok

The capital of the state of Sikkim, Gangtok is an attractive tourist destination, reflecting a unique ambience which derives from its happy blend of tradition and modernity. Alongside the deeply felt presence of stupas and monasteries, Gangtok also bustles like any other thriving town. Some of the key places to visit include Rumtek Monastery, Do-Drul Chorten, Enchey Monastery, Tashi View Point and the local bazaar, Lal Bazaar.

If you like Cold places

Rohtang Pass

If you are fond of cooler temperatures, Snows and mountains, Rohtang Pass HAS to be on your list! There are multiple reasons for it.

Rohtang Pass

First and foremost, Rohtang Pass is one of the very few places in India where you will find snow throughout the year – if you love skiing, you cannot miss this place.

However, do check your calendars properly as this place is closed in the winter months for nearly six months. The season starts from April-May and runs until October, after which this place gets lots of snow and the place is closed. Afterall, this is 13,000 feet above sea level!

  8. Sonali says

    I recently had the opportunity to visit Amritsar and the recently opened Gobindgarh Fort. This fort is over 300+year old and has never been open to the public/ civilian atleast for the last 170 years. It has a history of having been under Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the British raj, post independence- the Indian army. Even the gorgeous Kohinoor diamond was stored here.
    History here is told via the means of state of the art technology through their various shows. Currently there are 2 shows. 1 show being a 3D with special effects on Maharaja Ranjit Singh and the other a beautifully done evening show using projection mapping. What a marvellous way to teach and learn history!!
    This fort is very different from any fort you have been to earlier. Very neat clean and tidy spaces. Offering the best of Amritsari/ Punjabi food and also goods to purchase.
    I am made to believe that in the near future several more shows and activities are to be added.
    This is a must visit destination for every and anyone visiting India/ Punjab.

    1. Anish says

      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.

      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…

    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.

  80. Rahul says

    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………….

  81. Senjita Marak says

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

  82. smile abhi says

    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.

  89. aditi says

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

  90. Siju George says

    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.

  91. Jerin says

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

  92. chirag says

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

  93. Sanjay says

    Hello Sir,
    Isn’t Manali a best place?

  94. Yury Persits says

    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

    1. Dhairya Bapodra says

      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…

    2. Ashish Garg says

      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.

    3. Yury Persits says

      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.

    4. Abhishek Verma says

      Hi, I am Abhishek from India near to Delhi….if you guys want to see Indian culture, then go to Gurgaon city. and in gurgaon you can go "Kingdom of dreams". This is the best place for you and for food and shopping you can go "Ambiance mall". this mall also in Gurgaon…so spend 1 Day in gurgaon City. New Delhi Airport to Gurgaon City runing time is 30 to 40 minute via Car. if you also like hills and Tracking then you can go Dharamshala City then from Dharamshala to Kullu-Manalli.

    5. Vin Nan says

    6. Sathish Kumar says

      i think u looking for north india.. better u can come to south india..fly to chennai or bangalore..u can see complete different culture than northern india..u people will like south indian more than north india.. here my suggestions(mahabalipuram one hour travel from chennai airport it is 1500 years old rock cut temple.not only a temple it is a great architecture and world heritage site) MADURAI once it was a capital of pandian dynasty it is also called 1000 temple owned city and 3000 years old city and u wud find the meenatchi amman temple a world heritage site.. u can feel the old culture and society by entering this city.. TANJORE once it was the capital of the great chola dynasy of india..better u can see any one of this city(my preferense is madurai) OOTY its a hill station der u wud find the nilgiris train it is world heritage train running since from 1895 and also u could find the muthumalai reserve forest der u could see tigers, elephant, leopard etci.. next kerala Gods own country.. so many back water tourist spots r their, one day u can spend in boat house its completely extrodinary.. u can feel a complete dravidian culture in south india and u can see the one of the oldest culture and one of the oldest speaking languaga(tamil)..

    1. Shweta Tripathy says

      Really agree with you and bikarm, puri is the weasome plase, it’s has the natural beauty as well as the holy palce of Load Jagganath so it should be there in top 10 coz there is no season for tourist, they come 365 days here in puri. not only puri but also various place of odisha is planty of nature, so i would suggest peolpe to be there once.

    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 :)

  163. Ray Saurabh Nath says

    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.

  164. arvind says

    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.

    1. Sandeep says

      @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.

  165. Harpal Singh says

    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.

    1. Md.Hassan says

      Oye! Harpal paji, tussi kamal kar ditta yaar. Golden temple is holy place not a tourist place. But hamara Amritsar hai bada changa, khub baddia.

    2. Navjot Singh says
