NORTHERN INDIA

Splendid Himalayas, Thar desert, Indo-Genetic plains provide variation in the climate and topography across the northern India. Himalayas hold some of the scenic hill stations of the subcontinent. Delhi, capital of India is also located in north India. Before Britishers shifted their capital from Calcutta to Delhi, this historical place already had seen fanatic political activities for centuries.

Being closely related to the history of northern India, Delhi has

many historical monuments. Some of these monuments are have managed to bear the vagaries of time but many have perished. Close to Delhi is Agra. The Moguls had this place as their capital before they shifted to Delhi. Agra is famous for the greatest monument of love the Taj Mahal. This white marble structure is an architectural marvel and is the most photographed monument in the world.

Close to Agra are twin cities of Mathura and Vrindavan. These two places are important pilgrimage for Hindus. In Uttar Pradesh, on the banks of holy river Ganga is located Varanasi. Varanasi or Banaras as it is known has been very sacred for the Hindus as they consider this place to be abode of Lord Shiva. While Himachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir have numerous hills stations, the dry Thar Desert of Rajasthan holds historic cities of Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur. The

palaces, forts and gardens & lakes add colour to this otherwise barren area. The cities of Rajasthan spell Royal grandeur in their structure and have been attracting a major chunk of foreign tourists.

SOUTHERN INDIA

While the lofty Himalayas have been guarding the northern frontiers of India, the southern plateau has been washed by gentle waves of the oceans. The people here are from the Dravidian race and are very protective about their culture and traditions. But strangely it is the southern region, which has been attracting most of foreign investment in the recent times. Infect it was on Malabar coast of

Kerala that first foreigner from the West landed in India.

From the backwaters of Kerala to exotic coral islands and lush green hill stations in Tamil Nadu all have a charm of their own. The Capital city of Karnataka, Bangalore can match any other city in the west. Recently this place has come up as the software hub of the world. Popularly called the garden city, Bangalore is one of most jazzy

places in India. On the line of Bangalore is coming up Hyderabad. A quite city known for
the Nizam rulers, Hyderabad is the second place in India, which has a cyber city.

Going further south there are excellent beaches and temples. Who can forget the ever- beautiful Chinese nets along the coast in Cochin? Or the species, which are grown here. The coconut on the beaches gives a pleasure, which cannot be described in words. The state capital of Tamil Nadu, Chennai formerly known as Madras is another historical place in the south.

The golden Marina beach in Chennai is one of the longest beaches in the world. In south India one can enjoy crashing breakers on the shores or can enjoy the peace and greenery of places like Ooty. One can visit the historical places of Karnataka or worship in the temples of Tamil Nadu. Southern India had many things to offer, what you need is to explore the region.

EASTERN INIDIA

They are called the seven sisters. They are the seven beautiful states of Northeast India. These states have not come up as tourist destination on the tourist map. But they have immense potential for travel and tourism. The small but densely covered hills of these

states are a mystery, which wait to be discovered and explored. The tradition, culture,
and festivals everything has remained covered and is slowly opening up.

The Buddhist pilgrimages of Bihar or the temples of Konark, Bhubaneswar, and Puri in Orissa are visited by pilgrims as well as the tourists. The Chillika Lake is the largest lagoon and watching sunset over the lake has its own pleasure. Visit the beaches of Digha in West Bengal and Puri in Orissa, their beauty is sure to hang in your mind for years to come.

One of the major tourist destinations in East has been the Calcutta. Calcutta came up as a major city of the region when it was made the capital city by the East India Company. Calcutta has retained the historical splendors, which is reflected in the buildings of the place. Today Calcutta is the capital of West Bengal and one of the major ports

in east.
The sunderban deltas are also a major tourist attraction. The great Sundari tree

(Mangrove) thrives on the silts deposited by the Ganges before it meets the ocean. These trees form a part of the Sunderban National park where the Royal Bengal Tigers are found. Also, the crocodile and mighty pythons have made these deltas as their home.

In this region only one can visit Bodh Gaya, Rajgir, Nalanda and Patna etc. These places are part of Buddhist tourist circuit. Most of them are closely related with the life of Buddha and at some places last remains of this great preacher are kept. Thus, the eastern region also has many things to offer, itinerates for some have already been made and some wait for their turn to come.

WESTERN INDIA

The Arabian Sea guards the western region of India. The places on the western coasts are usually regarded gateway to the western countries particularly the Gulf region. Maharastra, Gujarat, Goa are few states which form the coastal belt of west India. On Arabian Sea is Mumbai, the commercial capital of India. Also, known as the

dream city Mumbai has attracted people from all walks of life. The star attraction of Mumbai is Bollywood, one of the largest film industries. The beaches and skyscrapers are part of the topography of this place. The gateway of India welcomes every one to this land of dreams.

On the western coast is Goa. The colour, festivals, beaches and a church that is what Goa is all about. Goa is very popular haunt for the foreigners. Not long ago the Hippies and drug peddlers did notoriously infect this place. They have not been totally eliminated but their presence is

almost nil today. Goa is land where people are celebrating all the year round. Folk songs & music combined with the local brew Fenni produces an effect, which is, felt nowhere else.

The cave temples of Ajanta Ellora or the historic city of Aurangabad, all remind of the grandeur and architectural excellence, which this place had attained. Khajuraho temples in Madhya Pradesh have completed 1000 years. The tourism department is celebrating this occasion by organizing Khajuraho millennium. These festivals start in March this year and will end in 2000 AD. The temple at Khajuraho represents artistic excellence in

itself. The erotic depiction on the walls of these temples has been attracting tourists far
and wide.

The numerous wild life sanctuaries and national parks sustain a variety of flora and fauna. Cities like Sanchi had been center of Buddhism but now only the stupas remain to tell the story of the past. But there are places like Nagpur, Gwalior and Bhopal, which are still alive and growing.

place into one of the highest battlegrounds of the world.
