India is a nation of diversity. The cities in India are like no other. They are both old and new. Rich and poor. Diverse yet united. India is a whole world in itself. Forget the cities abroad. Here are three cities in India that you should definitely visit on your next holiday:
Varanasi, Benaras or Kashi, whichever name you choose to call it, one fact remains : this city is absolutely magical. This city, which is one of the oldest cities in the world, is progressing fast, without losing its old world charm. Even though Varanasi is largely viewed Hindu pilgrimage city, everyone should visit this city. This city perfectly captures the role religion plays in our daily life. Watching the Maha aarti on the banks of Sangam is an experience of a lifetime.
Hyderabad is India in a nutshell. It is the perfect example of unity in diversity. The culture of the city is extremely rich and the hospitality of the hyderbadis is noticeably warm. There is much more to the city than just Charminar and biryani. Every traveller should definitely try the delicious osmania biscuits and Irani chai, while visiting the chaotic old markets in the old city. The city is also home to some of the most beautiful palaces in the country, such as the Falaknuma palace and the Chowmahalla palace.
Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim, is world renowned for its natural beauty. In fact, the city is a role model for other cities since it has banned plastic completely. The clean, pristine air and the majestic Himalayan slopes are not the only attraction here. The monasteries and the tea gardens are also extremely beautiful. This city is a great place to visit, if you are bored of your usual city life and are looking to just breathe and take a break.
