Kurukshetra Tourism & Travel Guide

Straight out of the pages of history is the pious city in Haryana, Kurukshetra. The land is hallowed for being the zone for the Kurukshetra War of Mahabharata and also the founding place of Lord Krishna’s brainchild, Bhagavad Gita. If you visit the city today, you would find its sanctity unblemished. A tour around the place will take you on a journey through time. Jyotisar is the place where Lord Krishna had encouraged Arjuna to proceed with the war. The 1000-year-old banyan trees shadow and seemingly protect the place to stand the test of time. The Brahma Sarovar and Sannihit Sarovar are water bodies that are considered sacred. Thousands of pilgrims flock for a bath in these waters to wash away their sins. The ritualistic aarti in the evening is beautiful to watch as hundreds of lamp flicker in the water. The Heritage Hotel and Saffron Hotel offer relaxing stays. Spend a day seeing the town on a rickshaw. You will be amazed at the number of temples dotting the city. A quick visit to Sheikh Chilli’s Tomb will beautifully articulate the Persian influence and will add to the enriching experience of this saintly city.

Home to over a crore people, Delhi’s tourism is a treasure trove of historic gems, gardens, museums and a thriving food culture. Travel to the metropolis for the vibrant bazaars of Chandni Chowk that give way to Lutyens’ New Delhi, that is the pulse of the city. Among the numerous places to visit in Delhi city, for an insight into the magnificent Mughal era, go to the 16th century Humayun’s Tomb, the towering sandstone mosque of Jama Masjid, and experience the sound and light show at Red Fort. Tourists can spend mornings at the extravagant Akshardham Temple and evenings at the Hazrat Nizam-ud-din Dargah (shrine) that boasts of sufi music and delicious kebabs. Another popular attraction of Delhi city is its pulsating markets that from baubles to handicrafts, sell everything you can possibly think of. Those who have travelled to Delhi for its particular brand of food, won’t be disappointed.

A huge incentive for Delhi’s tourism is its variety of public transport, wherein the Delhi Metro is the cheapest and easiest way to get around the city.
