1. The Taj Mahal, Agra
Any visit to India is absolutely null if you do not visit this magnificent piece of architecture. Built by one of the old Mughal kings of the sub-continent, the Taj Mahal is an epitome of grace and beauty. Since the king built it in loving memory of his wife, the Taj Mahal is also seen as a symbol of love – think of it as the Indian version of the eternal symbol of love. So if you want to show your love to your significant other, whoever they may be just take them on a trip to India and make them visit the Taj Mahal in Agra. Nothing speaks love louder than actions such as this.
2. The Delhi Gate
Located in the capital of India, this place is bound to bring out the inner patriot in you regardless of the country you belong to. This two arched doorway was constructed in loving memory of all the Indian soldiers that fought alongside the Great Britain and lost their lives in the First World War. If you visit in August you will also get to see some amazing Independence Day celebrations at the Delhi Gate as well. So plan your trip accordingly to get the best experience of India.
3. The River Ganges
This is one of those rivers that is long enough to flow across boundaries. It starts from India and ends in Bangladesh. It is a sacred site among the Indians and people usually visit it to bathe their sins away, for spiritual guidance or in some cases to embark on adventures. Once a year in India, a festival is held along the banks of Ganges to celebrate. So depending on the timing of your trip, you might get to be a part of this festival as well.
