Below, I’ve listed ten of the most beautiful places in India that you must visit. A few of these places can even give you a taste of the supernatural – from mysterious caves to ancient temples where mythical gods and goddesses have been worshiped for centuries, you’ll find yourself experiencing things here that will make any other vacation pale in comparison!

1) Agatti Island

Agatti Island is one of the lesser-known islands off the coast of India. Accessible only by a 45-minute ferry ride from Kalpeni, Agatti is a marine national park and a bird sanctuary, with no habitation other than that of the personnel employed by the Indian Navy to protect this pristine environment. The island is covered with thick mangrove forests inhabited by various birds and monkeys.

2) Katra

Located on the banks of the Jhelum River, this picturesque site has been attracting Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims for centuries. When local Hindus and Buddhists have their wishes fulfilled, they give thanks by donating a stone to the temple complex.

3) Nubra Valley

A picture doesn’t do this place justice. Nubra Valley is so surreal, one of the main ways to get there is on horseback and it will take you a full day.
The temperature starts around freezing at night, but it’s surprisingly tolerable during the day (considering its altitude), with daily highs between 10 and 18 degrees Celsius.

4) Ladakh

Known as the land of high passes, Ladakh is a captivating and enchanting place. Its mystique comes from its exotic culture and age-old Buddhist monasteries that are situated on high mountain passes with the Himalayas in their backdrop.

5) The Golden Temple

Built at the site of a sacred pond, the Golden Temple was completed in 1601 by Guru Arjan. It is home to a solid gold temple and the Akal Takht, which was damaged by militants. As part of their protest against the Indian Government’s persecution of Sikhs following Operation Blue Star, members of the Sikh militant group (the Dal Khalsa) bombed this place on April 13th 1984. The Mughals were fascinated with water and built fountains all over their empire, including those in Kashmir. These gardens are dotted with little pools where you can cool off from India’s stifling heat during summertime.

6) Mysore Palace

Mysore Palace, also known as the Mysore Durbar, is a royal palace in Mysore, India. The palace’s garden and the ode-relief figures on its walls are particularly impressive. Built by Maharaja Krishnaraja Wodeyar III who ruled from 1799 to 1868 with various modifications and additions being made over the years, it served as one of his official residences for about 200 years.

7) Lepakshi Temple

Lepakshi Temple is located deep in the forests of Andhra Pradesh, a state on the east coast of Southern India. It is widely believed that when King Nanda married his beautiful wife, he commissioned to build her a temple to honor her as she was unable to conceive. Today, it’s one of the most well-known tourist attractions because the paint from all its murals has still not faded.

8) Hampi

Hampi is an old city that has fallen into disrepair and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. One of the most iconic sites here is the Virupaksha Temple, which was built to pay tribute to Lord Parshva, who founded this place. While not currently functioning as a temple, you can still visit the stunning stone carvings and capture incredible photos here.

9) Charminar

Situated at the center of the old city of Hyderabad, Charminar was erected by Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah and is one of the most important Islamic monuments in South Asia. The monument is built on a raised platform of steps from which four minarets can be seen rising up towards the sky.

10) Kerala Backwaters

This journey through the beautiful Kerala backwaters is one of the most relaxing and romantic spots on earth. It’s where time melts away as you drift downstream past traditional villages, and you’ll hear only the sound of singing birds. Simply hop aboard a houseboat for a remarkable experience.
