Top 10 India Landmarks that Will Amaze You

Written by wowrange

India has many emblematic monuments and temples, as predicted. After Gurudwara Bangla Sahib’s decline last year, Agram Fort rose up the list. Regrettably for Mumbai the Indian Gateway and Siddhivinayak’s Temple both dropped off the list this year, although there is still a Bandra-Worli Sea Connection (though in a lower position).

Here are the 10 points of reference which have been mentioned.

Taj Mahal, Agra

It is one of the landmarks of Delhi and one of the largest Hindu temples in the country. The temple is dedicated to Swaminarayan (a form of Vaishnavism) who is the creator of a new religion named “Swaminarayan Hinduism.” There are many exhibits and gardens highlighting the music, cultures, architecture, and history of India.

The Red Fort in Delhi was one of the best Mughal forts in India. Originally, Agra Fort was a brick fort, held by the Rajput clan. The Mughals captured it subsequently, however, and Emperor Akbar rebuilt it and decided to move its capital there in 1558. Nevertheless, it is not only a fort. There are also magnificent palaces of white marble and other structures. The nighttime sound and light display, which recreates the past of the city, are another draw.

Meherangarh Fort, Jodhpur

A big landmark in India, Qutab Minar is the world’s tallest minaret in bricks and an impressive illustration of early Indo-Islamic design. It was founded in 1206, but it is still a shame. Many claim that victory and the launch of Muslim rule have been rendered in India, while others suggest that it has been used for calling the believers to the prayer. The tower has five distinct stories and is surrounded by elaborate sculpture and holy Quran chapters.

The bridge, which has a rope, is spanning the Arabian Sea and connects south Mumbai with one or more columns-sized pathways supporting the bridge deck. It seems to have a steel wire that blends with the Earth’s surroundings. The bridge also weights 50,000 African elephants and has been using 90,000 tons of cement–enough to construct five houses with ten floors. It is known as a masterpiece in engineering.
