Most people are familiar with the cities of Delhi and Mumbai but have never heard of some of the lesser-known Indian destinations that are just as enchanting to visit. Here we give you a sneak peek at three of our favourite cities to visit in India.
Known as the “Pink City,” Jaipur is a stunning Indian destination filled with adventure and culture. Lined with forts, palaces, and temples, this city is fast becoming a more popular destination amongst tourists. Plus, if you love trying new foods, the Rajasthani cuisine is sure to enlighten your taste buds. In fact, it’s been noted by foodies as some of the most exquisite Indian cuisine in the country. Here in Jaipur, there is indeed something for everyone – relaxing in the local gardens, shopping at the local bazaars for handicraft specialties or viewing the unique wildlife at the Ranthambore National Park right near the city.
Ahmedabad, India’s sixth largest city, is known for its religious festivals and mouth-watering cuisine that attracts visitors from far and wide. Tourists flock to the area each year to check out the Gandhi Ashram at Sabarmati, which displays the real living quarters of Mahatma Gandhi himself. Ahmedabad is also known for its many beautiful museums, stunning monuments, gorgeous lakes, modern shopping malls, fine dining restaurants, and fantastic night markets.
Known as the “Holy City” in the state of Punjab, it’s the most sacred city in this Western part of India. Located approximately 270 miles northwest of Delhi and close to the border of Pakistan, it’s easy to get to and is worth the visit. Here you’ll find the Golden Temple, which is arguably one of the most beautiful sights in all of India. This golden spiritual and cultural centre for the Sikh religion features a giant holy pool for pilgrims to bathe in, along with a beautiful array of colours and traditional music that plays throughout the complex.
The impressive display of art, history, culture and food throughout Amritsar and many of these other lesser-known Indian destinations will take each and every one of your senses on an exciting adventure.
