8 places in India that look like rainbows (2019)

India...we might be known for spices, constant noise, way too many people, but what's the best thing about us? Colours! Loud, crazy, in-your-face or even subtle, mellow, toned-down...just like the spices we have! So, what are the most colourful places in India? We have a list here that is more colourful than your face on Holi :P

Coral Reefs at Andaman

Did you know that these beautiful islands are referred to as the "Veritable Garden of Eden"? Head to the aquamarine garden to get a taste of the underwater marine life, coral reefs, shipwrecks and ornamental fish. Is this the best place ever to take a selfie or what?!

The Blue City of Jodhpur

If you don't believe in love at first sight, now is the time to change your mind. Go to the very top of the mighty Mehrangarh fort and you'll see beauty in blue like never before. The smile...of the sun, the killer curves...of the streets - well, you get the drift! :P

Meenakshi Amman temple of Madurai

The absolute zenith of temple architecture, the Meenakshi Amman temple is a stunning complex that will leave you in a complex. How did they carve 1511 gods, goddesses, demons and heroes on the south gopuram and we don't have the patience to wait for a 2-minute ad to end on YouTube?

The Valley of Flowers at Uttarakhand

This national park will literally and figuratively take you high! Sure, you need to trek for quite a while before you reach this wonder, but once you do, you'll never want to leave! 300+ different varieties of alpine flowers with snow-capped mountains in the background. Need more reason to visit?

Munnar in Kerala

The largest tea-growing region in South India, Munnar will take your breath away and not just because of its terrain. Emerald-tea plantations, swirls of white mist, the purple-blue neelakurinji flowers which bloom only once in 12 years!

Buddhist Prayer Flags at Sikkim

Red, yellow and white, old and new, all carrying prayers that dance in the wind and spread to areas near and far. They promote peace, compassion and wisdom...now, you can be a better person just by standing in the vicinity of these lovely flags! :)

Dal Lake in Srinagar

A clear sheet of water, beautifully painted shikaras (the Indian version of gondolas) floating around, transporting people and goods...almost too good to be true, but true it is! There's even a floating market selling vegetables here!

Motisons Tower in Jaipur

This colourful building inspired by a lotus flower is a 50000 square-foot structure that looks stunning on its own, but when it comes to life, it's tons better! A building coming to life...confused? The panels change colour and the leaf veins light up!
