77 Best Tourist Places to Visit In India (2020)

They say Home is where the heart is but not always, sometimes being at home becomes suffocating and this is when we need to go out and have some thrilling fun and a blast of fresh air to nourish our mind and bodies. 

But sadly, our lifestyle makes it tough to travel wherever we please as we’re quite busy trying to make ends meet. And when the holiday bell finally blares and we have enough budget to travel, we realize that we don’t know where to go. It’s an uncommon thing when we don’t want it we think up all our travel plans but when we want it, nothing comes in our heads. 

If you’re an Indian, you might find foreign lands quite exotic, but have you completely discovered India? I guess not. The irony is, while we want to travel to foreign lands, the people in those foreign countries want to travel to India. Why so? Simply because India is incredible. I know you might think otherwise, but it’s our own people who’re wrecking India’s beauty. 

India is Ancient, and over time it has accumulated one of the best histories the world has to offer. As a tourist, if I were to travel through India, I’m pretty sure I’ll find something of historical importance at every 100kms. Even if you were to cut and simply pick the top destinations in India, they’ll go over 1000 easily, and writing them is a massive chore and also a reading chore, so this article has selected the top 77 which are worth visiting in India.

Taj Mahal historical places of india

Whenever one says the word “India” the first thing that comes in our minds is the majestic Taj Mahal. Its beauty doesn’t need any description as I’m afraid I’m incapable of doing so.

The construction of the Taj Mahal was commissioned by Shah Jahan in memory of his departed wife, who had died while giving birth to their 14th child (don’t giggle and new mothers, please don’t look aghast). Taj Mahal took 20 years to be  constructed and over 20,000 workers(They weren’t killed). And since the day it was completed it has been the epitome of Love and Beauty.

Taj Mahal might already be on your itinerary, no matter who you are or where you are from. Try to be at the ticket booth by 5:30, or you might spend an hour in the queue. And stick to eastern or western gates.

Last time it was damaged 1984 during Operation Blue star which was undertaken to remove Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale from Akal Takht, who along with his mulitrants sought to create a new nation named Khalistan with the help of Pakistan’s ISI.

Whenever an Indian thinks about caves, Ajanta and Ellora caves are what first comes in his mind, and rightfully so as these caves are one of the most exotic caves in India. Both caves are located close to the other in Aurangabad and both are rock-cut caves. Ajanta caves are slightly older than Ellora caves and have 29 caves while Ellora has 34 caves. Ajanta and Ellora are a combination of Buddhism, Jainism, and Hinduism as the caves consist of Buddhist monasteries, Jain, Hindu temples (religions united!).

All the sculptures within the caves are sure to leave you flabbergasted. Ajanta and Ellora also house the Kailash temple which is the world’s single largest monolithic structure. Visiting these might give you the true taste of Indian Art.

Elephanta caves

Elephanta caves caves in india

Seems like Maharashtra is home for some of the most impressive caves after the Ajanta-Ellora caves, they are the best caves in Maharashtra. Elephanta caves are dedicated to Lord Shiva but there are few Buddhist monuments. Elephanta caves get its name from the massive Elephant statue that acted as a landmark to distinguish it from other islands but the British tried to remove it and take it to England but it was shattered and now the broken pieces stand outside Jijamata udyan in Mumbai.

The caves were exquisite but Portuguese used them as a firing range and Mughal destroyed them, so now most of the Elephanta caves are in shambles but there are still few things worth seeing such as Trimurti and Natraja statues.

Finally a natural cave with natural beauty but sadly no sculptures. Borra caves are made up of Karstic limestone and are abode to many stalactites and stalagmites. If you know how long it takes for those to form, you might start appreciating them.

The caves are colorfully illuminated which makes it quite interesting. 

Borra caves were discovered when a shepherd lost his cow, and as there was a stone shaped like a lingam he thought Lord Shiva saved his cow (like Lord Shiva would ever bother about a cow…) and so the Shepherd told the villagers about his discovery also added that lord Shiva saved his cow, and the villagers believed it (weird religious flex, but Okay).

Conclusion

As an Indian, it makes me quite proud and excited to live in a place that can change drastically by simply relocating to a different region.

Seeing the entire beauty of India in a single life is impossible, sure it’s possible if you just visit top destinations in all 29 States and 7 Union Territories but visiting every individual city or village in India and soaking in their uniqueness might take over 120 years
