"There's never one sunrise the same or one sunset the same," said Carlos Santana, the Mexican musician.

These are the two most beautiful parts of the day (if you ask me). It is in these moments that the world comes to a halt and takes a deep breath. The majesty of such moments have inspired painters and writers for centuries. These seven locations in India promise sunrise that are worth waking up to even for the late risers. 

1: Tiger Hill, Darjeling

The first ray of the Sun is said to bathe the twin peaks a shade of pink and then turns into a bright shade of orange. It is best enjoyed with a steaming cup of Darjeling tea in hand.

2: Havelock Island, Andaman & Nicobar

The white sand, azure water and lush greenery of Havelock Island is pure bliss. Early in the morning, the sky is a riot of colours and the play between the clouds and the Sun adds another dimension to this place.

3: Rann of Kutch

When the Sun shows up in the morning, the white salt of the Rann of Kutch sparkles in all its glory. It is sight to behold with your loved ones. And that's not all, the entire salt desert shines on full moon nights as well.

4: Pushkar, Rajasthan

Pushkar is a pilgrimage town in its own class. The ubiquitous camels, hippy cafeterias and the reflection of the Sun on water leaves an imprint on every traveller. 

5: Vivekananda Rock, Kanyakumari

The sunrise at the southernmost tip of the Indian mainland, at the intersection of the Indian Ocean, Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea is truly the stuff of dreams. 

6: India Gate, Delhi

Delhi may be the worse when it comes to air pollution, but early in the morning when the Sun rises over the India Gate; it refreshes the mind and makes one fall in love with India's capital all over again.

7: Varkala, Kerala

This coastal town in Kerala is where the hills and the sea join hands. This merger of the Arabian sea and the cliffs is known as Varkala Formation. Travellers come from afar to enjoy the view of the rising sun, while sitting at the beach cafe.

There are a few other places that come to mind for sunrises such as the Taj Mahal (Agra), Varanasi (Madhya Pradesh) and Chandrashila Peak (Uttarakhand). Which one is your favourite? Leave a comment below.

I love the first photograph that you have attached in the post. Is that in some desert since I see the cracks in the ground? Well, the best sunrise point in India for me is surely the Tiger Hill. The smokiness and the fluffy clouds crushing across the face feel divine absolutely.

This article reminds me of Arunachal Pradesh's Tawang where the first sunrise in India takes place. The colour play which I have witnessed there is absolutely breath taking and I can spend every day of the year witnessing such beauty.

It seems I have been and experienced all the best sunrise view in India. It now feels really satisfactory when I am getting evidence of how nicely I have travelled. By the way Anmol which camera do you use? The photographs look so good.

I do not why but I always feel sunrises above the sea beaches are the best and I would love to rate all the beach sunrises 10 out of 10 as the best sunrise point in India. I just cannot compare when i see these beautiful views.
