Attractions in India

With attractions scattered across several cities in five states, you have your work cut out for you traveling all over the place. Most visitors flying in enter through the gateway cities of Chennai or Bengaluru (Bangalore), so it makes sense that some of the most popular attractions are in these places. You’ll be hard pressed not to check out attractions like the UNESCO Heritage site of Mahabalipuram in Chennai or the spectacular Lal Bagh Botanical Garden in Bangalore.

But South India has a lot more hidden attractions and cultural heritage that cannot be found on the group tours. They’re just as unique and well worth a visit. From the palatial Chettinad Houses in Tamil Nadu’s Chettinad region to the ancient Jewish synagogues in Fort Kochi in the port city of Kochi (Kochi) in Kerala, a discovery of South India’s multi-ethnic culture is literally packed into the bricks on every road you pass by. Hyderabad is well-known for the Charminar, Salar Jung Museum and the Golconda Fort, but what’s jaw-dropping is the incredibly huge statue of the Buddha in the middle of a lake - it’s like Hyderabad’s own version of the Statue of Liberty.

Mumbai, the capital of Maharashtra, is a place that has something interesting and fun for all kinds of visitors. It’s possible you may be landing at Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, but what you should be doing is entering Mumbai via rail at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus. CST is one of Mumbai’s most famous and iconic landmarks, and you’ll be stunned by the sea of people passing through the station every single minute.

Great Attractions in India

  • Fort St. George - You’ll feel the shiver and awe of history speaking back to you at Fort St. George, because this is the building that eventually grew into the City of Madras (now Chennai)
  • Vivekananda Rock Memorial - This is one of the most popular tourist attractions in all of India, located in Kanyakumari (a hauntingly beautiful place) just offshore from India’s southernmost tip.
  • Ramanathaswamy Temple - This temple in the holy island city of Rameshwaram is a historic landmark that draws religious hordes as well as your ordinary intrepid tourist looking for nice beaches and luxury hotels for some quality down time.
  • Chinese Fishing Nets - These historic fishing nets are probably Kochi’s most famous tourist attraction. If you find it boring, you can always enjoy some waterfront seafood at the stalls in Vasco da Gama Square.
  • Paradesi Synagogue - This synagogue in Kochi is the oldest synagogue still standing in the entire Commonwealth of Nations.
  • Gateway of India in Mumbai- Iconic arch built by the British overlooking the Arabian Sea at Apollo Bunder in Colaba
  • Charminar - Hyderabad’s pride and joy, is a historic monument with four unique minarets. The structure dates back to the 16th century, and is now the grand-daddy of all of Hyderabad’s large collection of mosques
  • Golconda Fort - Also in Hyderabad and among the most well-known and well-protected historic fortresses you’ll see anywhere in India.
  • Tirupati Temple - This temple in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh is a very holy place if you’re religious. Even otherwise, the history and culture and the vast scale of the flow of devotees is an amazing sight not to be missed.
  • Haji Ali Dargah in Mumbai- The spectacular Haji Ali Dargah is built offshore, connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway that gets submerged at high tide. You’ll find the Mahalaxmi Racecourse right opposite the mosque

Top Attractions India

  • Fort St. George - Fort St. George, completed on St. George’s Day in 1664, is the first English fortress ever built in India, and was the start of what eventually grew into the City of Madras (now Chennai). Today, Fort St. George is the seat of the Tamil Nadu State Government, and has a museum with historic antiquities lined up in ten galleries across three floors.
  • Vivekananda Rock Memorial - This is a monument built in honor of Swami Vivekanada, one of India’s fabled thinkers and spiritual leaders. The rock is located in Kanyakumari, just offshore from the country’s southernmost tip. Combining history, beautiful beaches and a magnificent sunset, a visit to the Vivekananda Rock Memorial is one of the signature highlights in your discovery of South India.
  • Ramanathaswamy Temple - Rameshwaram is one of India’s most holy towns from where Lord Rama is supposed to have built a bridge across to Lanka. It is actually located on an island between India and Sri Lanka, and there is still a bridge to the mainland, but the road link leads to India. The Ramanathaswamy Temple is a historic landmark you just can’t miss, and the island offers serenely beautiful beaches for tourists looking for sun n’sand.
