Top 5 Instagrammable Places in India

Do you live in India or are you planning to travel to the subcontinent for your next vacation? If so, you might be thinking of where to visit – one that will not only dazzle the globetrotter in you, but will also be loved by your Instagram family.

In this article, we list the top 5 Instagrammable places in India, which you absolutely must visit this year:

1. Taj Mahal

A symbol of love, loss and grief for a husband, the Taj Mahal was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. This magnificent marbled Mahal has one of the most welcoming facades in the world. The intricate carvings on and inside the building bear witness to the art of the Mughal era. The landscaped gardens and lake around the Taj Mahal make it one of the most romantic places to take photos. You also have the opportunity to pose for the “holding the Taj Mahal by its dome” photo, which is very popular with locals.

2. Hawa Mahal

Jaipur’s Hawa Mahal is an imposing sandstone palace that once served as a romantic getaway for the kings and queens of Rajasthan. The many beautifully sculpted archways provide the perfect backdrop for ethereal Instagram posts. The palace champions both Hindu and Islamic art at its finest. The jharokhas (or lattice windows) are the main tableau here and you can pose against one of the jharokhas with the sun setting against you, for the most heavenly Insta DP.

3. Backwaters of Kerala

The languid backwaters of Kerala make the perfect Instagram posts for waterside holidays. You can spy on many photo-worthy spots from your vantage point on one of the houseboats. Taking a photo from your residence on the water will give you a backdrop of the beautiful lagoons, sunny skies and lush shores lined with coconut trees. The languorous atmosphere can allow you to create a sepia portfolio on Instagram, which your followers will really love.

4. Pangong Lake

The highest salt water lake in the world – Pangong Lake in Ladakh – has to be one of the most beautiful natural places in the world. Picture this – a sunny blue sky, against which ivory and brown mountains rise. The desert landscape extends to the horizon and beyond. And lapping at your feet is the Azure Lake – cold, refreshing, almost otherworldly – a gift from the gods. The solitude of Pangong Lake, coupled with its magnificent natural formations, makes one feel humbled by our own insignificance in the face of nature.

5. Ganga Aarti in Varanasi

One of India’s most iconic visuals – which you absolutely cannot miss – is the Ganga Aarti in Varanasi. It’s an experience that will capture all of your senses and captivate your audience on Instagram. Each evening, as the sun gently sets for the day, the priests of the temples on the banks of the Ganges come out to perform a ceremony that seems as old as time itself. The elaborate ceremony honors the goddess of water and thanks her for her patronage. Then the aesthetic manna begins, as massive brass lamps are lit and a great puja is conducted, complete with synchronized and rhythmic hand movements, mantra chanting and conch blowing. It’s fascinating to say the least, and you’ll definitely want to go live when the Ganga Aarti performs. Your followers definitely won’t want to miss this sensory feat.
