North IndiaUttar Pradesh

Can we just say that Uttar Pradesh got lucky when it bagged the Taj Mahal? The iconic monument put India on the map, but it would be unwise to think that the it could define such a versatile state. UP is unquestionably a hub for the spiritually and religiously inclined. Step right up to the Ganges and drink in the scent of incense sticks that release thousands of different aromas in the air and stick on until the evening pujas when entire sections of the bank are lit up in a fury of lights. If that seems a little too mainstream for you, we direct you to Sarnath where the realms of the physical and the contemplative collide. It’s not just the pious who find their rhythm here though, the foodies have a taste explosion awaiting!

Mathura

The famed birthplace of the Hindu God Krishna, is a lovely concoction of temples, the Yamuna River and popular festivals. The holy city attracts thousands of tourists everyday making it one of the busiest small cities in India.

Lucknow

Calmer in comparison to the other cities of Uttar Pradesh, this city is best known for its grandiose monuments and overstated parks and gardens, many boasting marble sidewalks and pink sandstone a plenty.

Fatehpur Sikri

Giving new meaning to the phrase ‘Old, alone, done for’, this once magnificent fort city was abandoned due to shortage of water. But the colourful bazaars and tenacious village life make for a good visit to the city of red.

Varanasi

This beating heart of Hinduism has a magical charm to it. A dip in the Ganges can wash away the sins while death here can liberate the soul! Not for the faint of heart, the sights and smells will assail your senses, leaving lasting impressions.

Agra

The iconic monuments of Taj Mahal and Agra Fort overlooking the Yamuna create a painting of a bygone era of Mughal grandeur that literally take your breath away. The smaller chowks that smatter the area are a treasure trove of trinkets and souvenirs.
