In India, you will find a vibrant contrast of modern buildings and an array of sacred cities, temples, and prominent historical landmarks to amazing natural parks, perfect beaches, and resorts. It’s no wonder that millions of tourists visit the country every year, regardless of the season. Although, there are numerous sights and attractions that you can visit if you haven’t been in India before this is our pick of 3 top must-see attractions that offer every reason to come back and visit India again.
Visit the Taj Mahal in Agra
The Taj Mahal is located on the right bank of the Yamuna River in the Agra District, Uttar Pradesh. It is India’s most recognizable building and one of the world’s greatest architectural achievements. The mausoleum is a true testimony to the love of the emperor Shah Jahan to his favorite Mumtaz Mahal and it was commissioned in 1631 and completed in 1643 AD.
The best time to visit the Taj Mahal is at dawn, in the winter so you can avoid the heat and drought of the summer season. But also, it’s good to buy your ticket at 5.30 AM so you would be able to see how the building changes its color under the sunlight at sunrise. It is a truly memorable experience. As a tourist it is also important to know that the building is closed for visitors on Fridays and it is only accessible to Muslims so they can attend the religious service.
Climb The Red Fort in New Delhi
The Red Fort is named after the stunning red stone used in its construction. It was also commissioned by Shah Jahan in 1648 as the center of Mughal power. It covers a vast area of more than two square kilometers, while you should visit the Lahore Gate and the Chatta Chowk. The Lahore Gate is the main gate and it offers one of the most beautiful views in Delhi.
The Lahore Gate is the main gate to the fort and it’s surrounded by the 7 chhatris and their beautiful white domes. The Gate guides to a covered bazaar where you can find traditional Indian garments, souvenirs, jewelry and more. You can also take a guided tour of the fort or explore everything yourself. However, we recommend booking a guided tour that offers a lot of information helpful for first-time visitors to India.
Plan a visit to Varanasi
Varanasi is the pure heart of the india. This is one of the world’s most famous oldest and holiest places in hinduism. Pilgrims come here to wash away their sins in the holy water and also hoping for liberation from the cycle of reincarnation. There are two most visited temples in the city i.e Kashi Vishwanath Temple and Sankat Mochan Temple as masses think that without visiting these places, their trip is incomplete.
Play Casino Games in Goa
Although today you can play a lot of casino games online, there are still a lot of land-based casinos around the world that have their unique charm. Online gambling is a popular pastime in India thanks to the variety of games at your disposal. From table and slot games to jackpot games to play with Rupees, there’s an extraordinary abundance of titles. The best part is you can play on any digital device with a stable internet connection.
But while there are plenty of casino sites online, there are only a few states in the whole country where you will find traditional casinos. Goa is one of those states, and is famous for its golden beaches, beautiful nature and great clubbing scene. If you decide to play casino games, we recommend the following casinos: The Deltin Royale Casino and the Casino Carnival.
