India is a vast continent, a melting pot of cultures and religions, an amazing place of diverse landscapes, an enchanting location where ancient and modern architecture complement each other in harmony. It is adorned with numerous attractions that are sprawled across its expansive topography and it may be hard to handpick which ones to visit and the ones to leave. Here are three must visit locations on your next visit to this charming continent.

THE TAJ MAHAL

The Taj Mahal is synonymous with India; it looms mysteriously like a fairytale on the Banks of Yamuna River, a story of love and commitment led to the creation of this jaw dropping monument. It prides itself as one of the most recognizable monuments in India and is also classified among the Seven Wonders of the World. It has a rich history dating back to 1630 AD and still stands up tall as an enduring structure symbolizing the love of a Mughal emperor to his wife. It is made of marble and took over 20 years to construct and over 20,000 workers. The intricate design, architectural ingenuity and careful attention to details have made Taj Mahal the greatest monument in India.

The Taj Mahal is best viewed at sunrise as the sun rays seem to work magic on the appearance of the monument; the colors keep changing at the light of day giving you a spectacular view.

THE KERALA BACK WATERS

The Kerala back waters provide a tranquil environment crowned by incredible natural beauty. It is a popular destination for tourists seeking relaxation and getting away from it all. It is comprised of a network of lagoons, lakes, rivers and canals that run inland from the coast of Kerala. The waters have been used for transport, fishing and even sports such as the snake boat races held annually in the region which provide entertainment for both locals and tourists.

The best way to experience the waters is by hiring a boat house that will let you experience this lush green palmed landscape, the spectacular wildlife and the villages lined along the shores of the waters. You will feel like you are in a different world all together, you can hire a houseboat for a day or even a whole week not forgetting you will be nourished by Indian delicacies: popular and spicy.

DELHI

Delhi is the capital of India and if you are on a quick trip to India this city will give you a glimpse of what India is all about from culture, history, cuisine and architecture. It is a city of contrasts divided into two; the ancient and crumbling Delhi rich in history and the new and well planned Delhi showing future prospects and hosting some of the best luxury hotels in India. The stark contrasts provide a deeply moving juxtaposition to the socially sensitive tourist. It is a city with spellbinding array of mosques, forts and monuments depicting the rich past of India. You can explore the Chandni Chowk and be adventurous with sampling street food in the market or ride a rickshaw around the city.
