Ghaziabad Tourism & Travel Guide

Ghaziabad is a well planned, commercial and industrial city that is part of the National Capital Region of Delhi.

NH 24, New Delhi 110091
Holding the Guiness World Record to be the World's largest comprehensive Hindu temple, the Swaminarayan Akshardham Temple was built-in just 5 years. The nearest metro station is the Akshardham Metro Station. Mobiles and other electronic gadgets are not allowed. These are to be deposited in the cloakrooms. It's an example of the grandeur and beauty of all the ancient and traditional architectural and religious styles which have ever been present in India. Usually the one who took such a noble initiative was Swami Maharaj of the Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha along side more than a thousand talented artisans. The temple is mainly specialized in Swaminarayan and also includes a separate shrine for Lord Shiva. There are a number of halls amongst which the initial one is where you will find films and robotic shows going to spread the message of honesty, peace and unity. In the second hall you is likely to be presented with the story of a classic yogi named Nilkanth in an exceedingly attractive manner. Last however, not the smallest amount of the next hall is where you are able to find out about the discoveries and works of the saints- scientists and the art of Ajanta- Ellora. The musical fountain is an amusement after sunset, the Lotus temple is another bit of beauty and the Garden of India is just a memorial for all the famous men and women of our country.

Netaji Subhash Marg, New Delhi
One of the most important monuments in the cultural as well as political scenario of India, the Red Fort is the pride of the capital city of Delhi. It was once the capital of Shahjanabad named after Emperor Shah Jahan. It was during his reign that this awesome monument took its form between 1638 and 1648. The whole structure was named Red Fort or Lal Qila due to the basic material of architecture which is sandstone. It served as the residence of the Mughal Kings for almost 200 years. Later when India became independent, the first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru hoisted the National Flag here and the ritual is still carried on. Every year the Independence Day celebrations are organized here.

Rajasthan’s opulent capital is a magical land brimming with desert camps and lakeside palaces. Sitting on the edge of the Thar desert and surrounded by the Aravali hills, the Pink City boasts of hilltop forts, bustling bazaars and the best pyaaz kachoris you’ll ever taste. Among the places to visit in Jaipur city, the grandiose pink sandstone Palace of Winds, or Hawa Mahal, towering over the hustling streetscapes and the majestic City Palace are the ones attracting the most tourists. The 18th century old astronomical observatory of Jantar Mantar in Jaipur is a UNESCO world heritage site and a major tourist attraction. Perched proudly on the top of a hill is Amber Fort, dating back to the 16th century. The red sandstone structure houses palaces, temples, gardens and a lake inside its premises. One of the most favoured things to do in Jaipur is to walk through the lively Bapu Bazaar, and come out with bags stocked with bandhani-printed sarees, lac bangles, meenakari trinkets and blue pottery. And while you’re at it, shop for some string puppets or kathputlis that make for some excellent souvenirs. Galtaji temple, also called the Monkey Temple, is another must visit in Jaipur city. If your eyes just can't get enough, visit Amber Fort, which has its own 600-year-old story to narrate, through its spectacular light and sound shows, cultural performances and folk music. Rajasthani tailored clothes, jewellery and handicrafts are a huge hit as souvenirs, for their exquisite mirror work, embroidery, leather and splashes of colour making up for most of Jaipur’s tourism. Some famous places this illustrious workmanship can be bought from are Rajasthali, Anokhi, Johari bazaar and Sireh Deori Bazaar, but remember to bargain. Central Museum and Albert Hall museum are great places to learn about Rajasthan's rich history and culture and also to buy handicrafts. The Jaipur Literature Festival, the world's largest free literature festival, is dear to almost every bibliophile around the globe. Here, enjoy literature and music, amidst the likes of William Dalrymple, Stephen Fry and many other renowned writers and personalities. The 5-day festival is hosted in Diggi Palace, which gives people around the world an insight into Rajasthan's captivating cultural heritage. For those interested in pampering their palates with the flavourful Rajasthani cuisine against the backdrop of a picturesque village should visit Chokhni Dani. For a regal experience, a stay at the Suvarna Mahal is a must visit.
