History has proofs, any place that narrates a powerful lover story or renders isolation has been a hit amongst couples. Sometimes when we are at such places where one can hold hands or look into eyes of the person one loves and everything makes perfect sense, isn’t it? And may be this is the only thing that many a time we want to feel, to just be there, together, against the world and loving it! There is a plethora of attractions scattered around India as well that exudes romantic vibes making one fall in love with the place and with each other once again. We are certain that you have a fair idea of such attractions in India but we still would like to contribute a bit to your knowledge. Here are some of the must-see attraction for couples in India.
There is something so seductive about silence, you can even hear the sound of the breath and that of the heart pounding, may be and it is indeed the most beautiful feeling. To look for such perfect silence one can wander in Andaman Islands and find this breathtaking beach called Radhanagar. Crowned as ‘Asia’s best beach’ and “7th best beach in the world” by Time Magazine, Radhanagar is situated on Havelock Island is certainly a must-see for beach lovers as well. The beach has soft white sand to take a stroll on and the prettiest blue water and fringement of palm trees as feast for eyes. Don’t worry about it being crowded, even though the beach is popular, you would find it comparatively empty.
We all have our moments at the Taj, isn’t it? The very first glimpse of this magnificent white marble edifice makes one go ‘Awww.’ In his heart even Shahjahan would have known that this place would one day stand as a legend, an epitome of love and an inspiration. Built in 1653 on the bank of River Yamuna, Taj Mahal was one of its kind even in its time and even today this humble mausoleum compels people to appreciate its unparalleled beauty. Though crowded almost round the year, it is definitely a place to see for couples.
Some say the best way to know someone is to travel with them. And one of the most ideal places to travel in India for couples would be desert. The vast Thar Desert in Rajasthan is home to some of the most gorgeous cities as well. The two important ones would be Jaisalmer and Bikaner. But instead of making one or both of these your travel destinations, choose the actual Thar to be the place to experience. Camp in the wilderness to be able to spend time with each other, forget the outside world and rejoice with a handful of people who serve you at the tents and make you sail in the desert.
This place adds extra dose of romance to the already romantic Udaipur Palace. It is like if only one place has to be enlisted as a must see in Udaipur, it would be this luxury property by Taj Group of Hotels situated right in the middle of Lake Pichola. The exuberant over-the-top heritage hotel, of course expensive too, has a prominent romantic aura. So even if you are unable to afford a stay at this luxury property like me, you can at least have a glimpse from the lakeside especially in the evening, when the palace glitters with lights.
Ladakh is magical, it is a place that everyone must visit including the couples. Tucked away in its one corner is the beautiful Pangong Lake which rose to extreme popularity after bollywood flicks like ‘3 Idiots’ and ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan.’ A high altitude lake, Pangong is ideal for couples where they can eye something so unique and beautiful, that too together. Quietude envelops everything here and there is nothing that one wouldn’t like about this except for the fact that one eventually have to return for here someday.
Situated in what is called the ‘paradise on earth’, Kashmir, Dal Lake justifies why it is deserves to be the part of this heavenly place. Stretched in an area of 22 sq km, the lake is something that can spark up the romance for couples. On its one side are arrayed houseboats that truly add to the charisma of this must see place in India. Dal is what makes Srinagar more beautiful and it is the experience of either sailing or staying on it that should not be missed if you are a couple.
This one is for those couples who wouldn’t mind putting extra effort to head to an isolated place where nature is the only companion. Dayara Bugyal, nestled in Garhwal Himalayas and surrounded by Bhagirathi, Bandarpoonch and Black Peak and scores of other mountains, somewhere about 190 kms from Uttarkashi, Dayara is reckoned to be one of the most scenic meadows in India. It can be trekked from Barnala Tal, which is 5 kms away. Pretty as it is, Dayara gives love birds the chance not only to relish the incomparable beauty of this place but also some time away from other human contacts. Yes, there will be people like you trekking and camping in Dayara but the population of such is still very less.
One of Meghalaya’s most prized possessions would be the Living Root Bridge. And there ain’t just one but 11 functional root bridges in the entire state. The most famous amongst root bridges is the “double decker” root bridge that can be found in the vicinity of Cherrapunji and it would not be incorrect to call it one of the most eerie yet amazing thing to see. Apart from being an exceptional place to see, these bridges reflect the wisdom of Khasi Tribe who in a way contribute in the formation. Entangled so perfectly as to be able to bear the weight of people crossing, these bridges are inspiration for being consistent and dependable, something we all have to be when we are in a relationship.
Apart from being one of the largest forts in India, Chittorgarh also has a small tale of love to narrate. The legend goes that in 1303 when Raja Ratan Singh lost the battle against Alauddin Khilji, the women of Chittorgarh committed Jauhar or self-immolation and leading it was King’s favourite queen Padmavati. Padmini as she is also called is said to be famous for her beauty and it is believed that king really loved her. Even today, those who know about this tiny love story can see Chittorgarh from different perspective. It is just not the large fort with 22 grand reservoirs but it is place where many stories of valour, wisdom, war and of course love can be traced.
Amongst the most beautiful national parks in India is Periyar National Park. Nestled in the Western Ghats, Periyar stretches in Idukki, Kottayam and Pathanamthitta district of Kerala. The park is known for its elephant and tiger reserves and ample of flora that makes it look really pretty. Periyar is an ideal place for the couples if they have interest in sighting rich wildlife and also spending time with other amidst quietude and thrill.
There is no greater pleasure than to share a view of something as magical as Nohkalikai Falls. Reckoned to be the highest waterfall in India with a cascading height of 340m, Nohkalikai is simply a piece of beauty that is a must see for couples. The fall is situated in East Khasi district in Cherrapunji and has a walkway and a viewing point from where one can get a considerable good view of the falls making you feel so in love with it. Since it is a popular tourist attraction, you can expect it to be crowded but still you have to believe me, it is truly worth seeing.
Unique and gorgeous is the White Desert of the Great Rann of Kutch in Gujarat. This seasonal salt marsh cannot be found in any other part of the country and hence it is unmissable. There is nothing more romantic than watching the sunset here. The light during the setting of the sun turns the colour of white desert to gold and what a pretty picture it offers to share with your loved one. Also, the night camel safari on a full moon night during the famed Rann Utsav helps spark up some romance for people already in love.
While there is so much to explore in Pondicherry, the White Town area of the city is something that no couple should give a miss. Settled close to the Rock or Mahatma Beach, this place comprises of French style buildings that looks absolutely adorable. The tall doors, large windows and the vibrant buildings that have now been converted to hotels and restaurants and boutiques make one feel being in mini France in India. White Town ideal for a stay and does offer many good accommodations at affordable prices. The highlight of the area is that though it is big, it can be explored on foot as well as by bicycle.
Yes, we all know as to why the temples of Khajuraho are famous but what we sometimes miss to realize about these is the fact the how well the people of this time understood its importance. What we now consider taboo has once been a vital part of people’s life. The temples are divided into four groups and the most popular group is the western one. It has temples like Kandariya Mahadev which has magnificent architecture. There is considerable amount of visits in the temples but one can still find enough isolation to contemplate this unique attraction.
Amongst the major attractions around Mysore, Brindavan Garden has been the favourite of many. It is known for its symmetric designs and terrace gardens, the garden also has fountains for which a special show is held in the evening everyday.
