India is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world because the country is very diverse culturally and in terms of the landmarks, historical sites and recreational areas. The most difficult aspect of visiting India for the first time is deciding what not to see. In order to help, here are the sights that no one should miss.
1. Delhi

For westerners, Delhi is fantastically alien, and the city is home to some of the most important tourist attractions. At the top of that list is Red Fort, which stands as a monument to the Mughal emperors who once ruled the land. There is also the Jama Masjid, which is the largest mosque in the country, and one of the Old City’s greatest treasures. The city also offers many great shopping attractions for holders of credit cards, including a mixture of traditional Indian shops and more modern malls.

2. Agra

Agra is home to the legendary Taj Mahal, and it is part of the Golden Triangle, a very popular tourist circuit. The Taj Mahal needs little introduction: It is India’s most significant and popular historical attraction and most iconic monument. A particularly good time to visit Agra is February 18-27, which is when the Taj Mahotsav, a weeklong festival, takes place. The festival recreates the Mughal era, and celebrates culture, arts, crafts and cuisine.

3. Udaipur

Udaipur is the famed city of palaces and lakes, and some call in the most romantic city in all of India. This is a must-see because no Indian city is better suited to immersing you in the local splendour. There is also a wide range of individual attractions to see. One of the most popular is the City Palace Complex. Others include the Bagore Ki Haveli, Lake Pichola and the Monsoon Palace.

4. Jaisalmer

Jaisalmer is a sandstone city rising out of the dunes of the Rajasthan desert. It is very romantic, and it reminds many people of an Arabian Nights fable. Many of its finest hotels are located in the middle of the desert, and lovers can experience romantic camel rides through the area. Just remember to take your card, as visitors with gold credit cards can earn rewards points when booking hotels or purchasing in the city.

5. Varanasi

Varanasi is a mystical holy city. What is most amazing is that there are no secrets here. All of the rituals take place along numerous riverside ghats, which locals use to bathe and even burn their dead. A visitor can simply walk along the river all day taking in a seemingly never-ending array of cultural and spiritual experiences. Many people claim to have life-changing experiences while walking along the ghats.

  3. Have seen 3 out of 5. Jaisalmer and Varanasi are still on my list.
    I loved the Red Fort in Delhi and the Udaipur Palace. The Taj Mahal disappointed me. Nek Chand’s Rock Garden in Chandigarh was a highlight for me. Did you visit that place?

  4. Will completely agree with you on this front but India has so many incredible destinations….everyone wishes to revisit the country for the same reason… awesome website Nick…

  5. I would totally agree with these 5. A lot of people hate Delhi or judge it before they arrive, but Delhi is great. Its everything Indian all jammed together and although parts of the city are dirty and chaotic, you can still find cool places there. I would add 1 more to this list and that would be the backwaters of Allepey. It can be touristy but if you come in the off season and get an adventurous captain…cruising these backwaters in a house boat is a definate MUST SEE site in India.
