The Indian Version Of These World-Renowned Wonders Are Far More Spectacular

The infatuation of the Indian traveller with foreign destinations is well documented. What most people aren't aware of, though, is that India is home to many locations that are almost-doppelgängers of these foreign destinations. If you're on a shoestring budget or your cranky boss hasn't sanctioned that week long leave you were asking for to travel abroad, these places are definitely worth a visit. Here's my pick of 10 such places in India that look like locations abroad.

1. You say The Great Wall of China..

Isn't the resemblance just uncanny? Its almost as if these places were drawn on the same piece of canvass which was then torn up and spread across the world. Next time you feel like visiting one of these foreign destinations but not travelling too far from home, you know where to jet off to.  

Have you ever been some place in India which closely resembled another destination abroad? Please feel free to share your experiences with me.

For those calling out to the Niagra, there's Bhedaghat... Breathtaking views from the foot of the fall amidst chalkstone... Another must visit...
