This article gives a brief tip about the various places of visit in India. A good effort by the author. There could have been a brief mention about the places like Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bhubaneswar and Lucknow from where a tourist can have a round of visit to the nearby places. The beaches of Chennai, Puri and Visakhapatnam are also worth seeing. In Assam, the famous Kamakhya mandir is famous place which attracts more tourists to this place. Lucknow is a historical city and places like Ayodhya, Varanasi and Allahabad can be covered in the spell of the visit.

A proper travel plan would help the visitor to cover all the places in and around the place of visit.

A good article for the foreign tourists. But the article is, in my opinion, not complete. The article has not indicated the tourist spots of Rajasthan and Kerala. These two states attract maximum tourists. Moreover, some details about Delhi, Agra, hill stations of Himachal Pradesh, Kashmir and Uttarakhand were expected. Forests of West Bengal, Odisha, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh are also missing. Expecting a sequel to this article!

@ Jagadish, thanks for your valuable comment. Yes, I agree as you said but still there are many best travel places in India and those would have been missed even if I would have stated the places what you mentioned. Anyhow, thanks for your suggestion and this was written way back in 2013, will try to write and cover more places with this article continuation.

@ Partha, thanks for your comment and suggestion. Yes, it is again the same reply as above replied to Jagadish. Anyhow, thanks to both of you for valuable advice. Will try to do and cover all.

Though I agree that it is very difficult to cover all the major tourist attractions of India in one article but some of the major missing attractions in the article are many world heritage sites like Khajuraho Group of Monuments in Madhya Pradesh, Ajanta Caves and Ellora Caves in Maharashtra and Sun Temple at Konârk, Odisha etc. There are many wild life sanctuaries and national parks, forts of Rajasthan and religious place like Ajmer Sharif, Shirdi etc.

@ Kailash Kumar, thanks for visiting, reading and your comments. Yes, I am writing other such tourist places too but it actually takes more time than expected to get the fullest data and complete it. I will do it for sure, soon. Again thanks for reminding me few of those places :)

I think the author has squarely missed some of the good places in South, especially Hyderabad in his list of places that can be visited during summer. Please note that when compared to other places, the summer is little under control in Hyderabad and even children can bear the heat at the peak. There are some good places to visit and cherish. The best being the Salarjung Museum which has the wholesome collection of Hyderabad Nawabs and the things to watch with care are the statues with replicas of Kings and Queens on one stone and the automatic wall clock which has the joker in action. The prestigious Charminar is famous for its towering looks. The area is best known as Lad Bazar for glass bangles shopping. You can also enjoy the whole day of fun and frolic at the Ramoji Film city. There are good lakes like Osman Sagar, Gandipet , Shaamirpet lake and Hussain Sagar. In the evenings you can go to Golconda fort for the sound and light sequence and also visit Famous Birla Mandir overlooking Tank Bund. Visit the Lord Buddha statue in the middle of the Hussain sagar through boating. Have a pleasure trip to nearby Lumbini Park and NTR gardens. If you have the four wheeler handy, then drive down the Necklace Road circulating the Hussain Sagar and enjoy the wholesome beauty of Hyderabad. Also visit the PV Narasimha Rao memorial on the Necklace Road which also has the attraction of Yogibear Park. So one can spend very good time seeing so many places in Hyderabad and the list is incomplete.

The author has made a good attempt to introduce some important places for touring in our country. The article is more general in nature. The subject selected is a vast subject and covering the entire information in a small article is a very difficult task. But within the limitations, the author did a good job.
The author has given more importance to places for tourists but no emphasis has been given to pilgrim places. If those places are also considered the article will become a very big article. But the places of importance for tourists in all the states are also not covered, Only places in a few states only are considered.
The Ramakrishna Beach and other Beaches in Visakhapatnam are also worth seeing. Kerala is also one of the most beautiful states in India and many tourists from abroad will be liking to visit the state also. Chandighar is another place where beautiful gardens are there which will be pleasure to watch.

India has a tremendous potential for tourism. We have famous places, hill stations, beaches, famous temples, Heritage buildings, and many other attractions which makes a country a very good choice for visiting. Though we feel pride in going to foreign countries but there are so many places in our country that we need to go. Only thing is that our maintenance and cleanliness is not of good quality and that is why we as a nation are losing on the big foreign revenue that is generated by the crowd of outside tourists coming to India.

Some of the places in Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Manipur, Maharashtra, Kashmir and Assam are comparable with the places in Europe in natural beauty and if we develop and improve them then India will be the biggest tourist puller in the world.

Indian food and Indian hospitality is known worldwide and people from various countries dream of visiting India at least once in their lifetimes.
