7 Wonders of India You Must Visit (New Guide 2024 )


I have been to India quite a few times but I never found it enough, it is such glory to see and visit the beautiful places in India. The beautiful aesthetic values of the past can still be felt among the monuments and the reminiscent of the past makes our top of 7 Wonders of India 2023.

India has always been famous for holding up it’s past and the culture and traditions of the past. No matter how advanced the Indians are but they do not forget their belonging, they are still very down to earth, they do not forget their place.

Whenever I have been to India, I have found something very different which I have never felt anywhere on earth. I have been to several other places in India because I love traveling but the natural or by birth patriotism was something which struck me most.

People in India love their country as much as they love their mothers, they often call their country as “Bharat Mata” which means “Mother India”. It is very unlikely to find such behavior from any other country in the world. It feels really nice to visit India, and as many times you wish, you can visit, they will treat you like their family members have arrived.

Today I will list some of the very important wonders of India, which you must visit if you are going to India. You can not afford to forget to visit these places, they are like real masterpieces which will leave you awestruck.

This is also one of the 7 wonders of the world, the historical significance behind the Taj Mahal is very romantic which is very interesting. One of the Indian kings known as Shahjahan had built this monument in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz after her demise she was engraved inside the mahal. Later on when the king demised even his body was engraved inside the same monument together with the queen.


This is an amazing piece of mastery which has never been seen again in anywhere in India because it is said that the king who had made this mahal or palace had ordered his men to cut off the hands on the artisans who had built the Taj Mahal so that they are never able to build another masterpiece on earth like the Taj Mahal.


Leaving aside all of these, one thing is significant that this palace looks amazing in the moonlight night. This place looks britting under the shiny white moon as if some silver has been sprinkled over the monument. Taj is one of the most romantic destinations even now and many couples still dream to get married near taj so that it becomes a symbol of their love and their journey.

You might be aware that Indians are flourishing all over the world, but in the roots of their mind, they believe that it is not only the hard work they do, in fact, it is also the blessings of their god and goddesses. Hence most of the monuments that are still left in India are the temples of their gods and goddess. They still keep the idols with all respect and worship them as gods and goddesses.


This temple is huge, it is also known as the sun temple because one can see the sun moved from the temple and understand time here. This temple is huge and it looks as if it is established on a chariot and they are being driven by some tigers and horses. The interesting this is the sculptures of this temple is strikingly clear and beautiful, even after so many years you will find the architecture of this temple is very prominent and clear.


But this temple is very clear about its rules and regulations, it does not allow people from other religions and communities to enter the temple and see the idol.
