Uttar Pradesh Travel Guide

Uttar Pradesh, the Largest populous state of India, a land replete with tales of ages gone by, of tales about Lord Rama and his kingdom of Ayodhya, of the Buddha and his teachings, of the Mughals and their art, culture and exquisite architecture, and of the British and the First War of Indian Independence in 1857. The state is one of the great historical and religious regions of India, with evocative places like Hardwar, Agra, Meerut, Varanasi, Allahabad, and Lucknow encompassing all aspects of life and presenting a colourful panorama of India's ancient history.

Throughout the lengths of the Ganga and the Yamuna right from their sources down to their majestic deltas, the land abounds with scenic spots and pilgrim centres. While the north consists of high mountain ranges nurturing beautiful hill resorts and some of Hinduism's holiest shrines, the Great Gangetic Basin or the Indo-Gangetic Plain is one of the most fertile and over-populated areas of the world. For the tourist, Uttar Pradesh offers a lot, so much more than just the Taj Mahal
