There are not many countries in the world that can boast of a diverse, colourful and rich culture as India. What adds to the essence of the place is that the culture it holds is centuries old and has still managed to remain intact, unaffected by the sudden yet fast pace with which the world is moving ahead and at the same time, there is the development that you see in all the major cold countries, in the metros and smaller cities of the country. Most will agree with me when I say that India is one of the most coveted, safe and welcoming countries of the world and there is no other place that can offer the amount that India does in the form of monuments, historic and cultural sites, national parks and zoos etc. The best tourist places of India have been summarized for you.
