Ghaziabad is a well planned, commercial and industrial city that is part of the National Capital Region of Delhi. It is located in Uttar Pradesh (UP) and since it shares its border with New Delhi, it is the main entry point into UP. Though not much of a tourist destination, Ghaziabad has its share of malls and shopping centres – the most notable being the Pacific, Shipra and Kaushambi malls. It provides options ranging from clothing to cosmetics to everything indeed! There is also the popular Iskcon Temple for the religiously inclined. Dedicated to Lord Krishna, this temple is frequented by devotees from across the globe. Picnickers and families can enjoy some time together at Masuri, which is a popular picnic spot here. With the Ganges River flowing nearby, Masuri is an ideal spot to relax. Ghaziabad can be reached by driving from New Delhi or Meerut. Buses and cabs are also available from New Delhi.
