From the appearance of Mugals work until the departure of British, U.p. has crossed paths with everything. Almost all the rulers who have governed Uttar Pradesh in the process of history have left their imprints regarding construction of great architecters.

Because of their single and aggregate commitments, Uttar Pradesh today gloats off a portion of the most famous indian landmarks in whole planet.

Each stone recounts its story ………

Talking of landmarks we should begin from the monarch around all; The Taj Mahal. So much have been discussed on The Taj by so many that there is nothing left to talk about it. As I mentioned earlier it’s the creation of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. It’s an epitome of eternal love. Its incomplete if we not mention One of the seven wonders of the world.

about varanasiVaranasi, the place that is known for Varanasi (Kashi) has been a definitive journey spot for Hindus for older ages. Regularly implied as Benares, Varanasi is the most senior living city on the planet. These few words by Mark Twain say everything :

varanasi“Benaras is more senior than history, more advanced in years than custom, more senior even than legend and looks twice as old as every last one of them assemble”. Ganges is said to have its beginnings in the tresses of Lord Shiva and in Varanasi. A portion of the most significant temples of Varanasi are Durga temple, Vishwanath temple, Sankat Mochan temple, Tulsi Manas temple and the Bharat Mata temple.

These are some of the historical places of Uttar Pradesh which can be included in famous Indian landmarks. Apart from these major historical places in India, UP also has a number of minor monuments that lay scattered in each and every corners of the state.
