India is famous for its diversified culture, multiple languages, beautiful arts, and many more things. Visiting India will definitely give you a different experience.
It was really an amazing experience to explore different cultures, ancient places, their language, etc. One of the most memorable things is the food in India is really tasty and delicious.
I am sure you have heard about the Taj Mahal, one of the 7 wonders of the world. However, there are several other places in India where you can have some memorable experiences.
Those places are also known as the wonders of India. Here, I will be sharing a list of seven such places that you must visit at least once.
List of 7 Wonders of India
While I’ve been exploring different places in India, I’ve found a lot of beautiful places. But if you ask me which are the best places to visit, then it’s pretty hard to say.
Because each place is unique in its own way. However, from my personal experience, I have mentioned the seven wonders of India, you must visit once in a lifetime.
Taj Mahal, Uttar Pradesh
Nobody is unknown about the great symbol of love which is built by Shah Jahan in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal.
It is known as the Taj Mahal, one of the 7 wonders of the world. So, no doubt you must visit at least once to this place, it’s really magnificent.
It was one of my dream places to visit the Taj Mahal, and I visited it last year. This is really an amazing place, let me take you on a virtual tour to the Taj Mahal.
Trust me, I was speechless and went blank while I stepped into the entrance gate of the Taj Mahal. It is a masterpiece of art and craft. The reflection of the shining monument on the water is heart touching.
I lost in the beauty of the place, I could not shift my mind from the place. Apart from this, sitting in the small garden surrounding the Taj Mahal is also a great place.
There is no question that you will enjoy the place all year round, but in my opinion, it’s best to visit between October to February.
Harmandir Sahib Golden Temple, Punjab
Harmandir Sahib which is popularly known as the Golden Temple is a doctrine place in Amritsar, Punjab.
This is a famous spiritual site of the Sikh religion in India. It is surrounded by a man-made pool named “Amrit Sarovar” which was completed by Guru Ram Das in 1577.
I got a different kind of experience inside the temple. I felt a vibration of silence inside me like I am healing myself.
While sitting on the bay of the Amrit Sarovar, it was really uplifting my soul.
Apart from this, you will enjoy the free langar inside the Golden temple. No doubt the taste of the food is delicious but the number of volunteers and the way they prepare and serve the food are really great.
Konark Temple, Odisha
Konark temple is popularly known as the Sun temple. This is one of the famous places in the state of Odisha.
There is a historical story behind this temple that a 12-year boy Dharmapada saved the life of 1200 workers by building the crown of the temple.
The scenery of the sunset and sunrise is really beautiful. It is believed to be built by Narasimhadeva. I have visited this place two times.
You can also visit the world-famous Jagannath temple which is nearer to this temple.
It will only take around one hour to reach from Konark Sun temple. However, the temple was invaded by Kalpahad who has invaded many other Hindu temples in Odisha.
Nalanda University, Bihar
One of the oldest and most famous universities in the world. This was destroyed by an attack by a Muslim leader Bakhtiyar Khilji in 1193.
But the university is reopened now. It facilitates libraries, good classrooms, and dormitories. If you are a student or want to go on an educational trip this is the best place in India to visit.
In southern India, there are many famous places such as Ooty, Mysore Palace, Kanyakumari, and many more amazing places.
But the Gommatheshwar statue is one of the main attraction which is one of the largest statues in India. This is located on the Vindyagiri in the state of Karnataka.
The statue is a symbol of the Jain religion and dedicated to the great figure Bahubali. This place is the centre of attraction in Sharvanbelagola.
There is a famous festival called Mahmastakbhiseka celebrated here every 12 years.
The last time it was celebrated is in 2018. On the occasion of the festival, the statue is bathed with a holy liquid prepared from the mixture of sandalwood, milk, turmeric, and some other ingredients.
However, you can visit the place all year round but the best time is in the winter.
Many people are not aware of the place but, this recognized as a world heritage site.
If you are a mysterious person then you will really enjoy this place. I visited this place with one of my close friends last October when on the Karnataka tour.
The view of the Tungabhadra river and the hill site in this place was really breathtaking.
There are many historical places in Hampi. You will explore many temples such as the Vistula temple, Lotus temple along with some smaller temples with their own historical background.
Some of the other attractions of the site are Ugra Narsimha, Queen’s Bath, and Pushkarini Tank. I recommend you to visit this place and don’t forget to visit the Archaeological Museum of Hampi.
Khajuraho, Madhya Pradesh
Many people have not noticed this place. But this is one of the best places in India to travel.
The main attraction of the Khajuraho temple is the artwork that demonstrates romance and spirituality.
There is a famous show inside the temple which is from the Chandela Dynasty.
Finally, I recommend that you visit these places at least once to explore the culture, history, art, and craft of India. It was a great experience to visit some of the places with my family and friends.
But it’s your choice, whether you’re traveling alone or with a group. There are many other places to visit in the North-East that are popularly known as the seven sisters of India.
