According to Tripadvisor these are the 10 most popular landmarks in India

One would totally concur that one of the most enduring achievements of Indian civilisation is undoubtedly its architecture, which extends beyond the eminent Taj Mahal or Jaipur’s ancient Amber Fort! And no, we’re not restricting ourselves to 16th-century forts and palaces but also encompassing modern marvels like Mumbai’s Bandra-Worli Sea Link!

Acclaimed travel website TripAdvisor has announced its Travellers’ Choice®awards for Landmarks and we’re proud to say that 10 of our country’s landmarks have featured in this prestigious list. Just to keep you in the loop, the list is compiled annually based on millions of reviewers across the globe.
