See the world through your lens. Photos capture moments of beauty and
exquisiteness in one frame. For budding photographers, out there India is a treat
in the kind of diversity it presents. From the chaos of the cities to the serenity of
nature, we have it all. This list compiles some of the most picturesque places in
1. Sambhar, Rajasthan
The largest inland Salt Lake in India is one of the weekend getaways from Jaipur.
The area is covered by a sheet of white. I would call this region a photographer's
delight not only because of the landscape but also the many villages adjoining the
area that give a glimpse of the Rajasthani culture. Hire bikes and tents from Jaipur
and ride to Sambhar because the night sky here, undisturbed by the many
building of the city has many secrets to show.
2. Jammu And Kashmir
Heaven on earth is bound to give you some photos you would cherish. A walk
along the Kashmir at five in the morning would show you how well the town and
nature blend together. The city of Leh is the crown of the state and the artistically
arresting in its charm.
3. Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh
The spiritual hub of India is submerged in chaos. The city has many temples and
Ghats that are marvels of architecture which attracts thousands of tourists to visit
Varanasi every year, but what is interesting about the city are the people. The
area is sure to give you some marvelous portrait shots.
The tea gardens in the state paint the region green. Drained by the Brahmaputra
river the region has many beautiful sites. The state is having a cultural
extravaganza for three days, Roongali festival. The cultural gala will have it all,
dance, theatre, handicraft along with others.

mixed with the modern Millie is picture perfect.
7. Lakshwadeep Islands
Abound with beaches and lagoons the island settlement of Lakshwadeep is an
exotic location. The coral reefs in the region are the deal stealer. The island has

clear blue waters.
