1. Taj Mahal

The first place which comes to my mind when I am talking about the most photogenic places in India is the Taj Mahal. What place can be better than one of the 7 wonders to take a picture? Shah Jahan had built this place for his wife Mumtaz after she passed away while giving birth. It is considered to be the biggest love symbol ever. It is said that the hands of the labourer who had built this mahal were chopped so that they couldn’t build another place like this. It is located in Uttar Pradesh and nearly 7-10 million people visit this architectural genius.

2. Kaziranga National Park

The next place I would like to talk about is Kaziranga National Park. It is seriously one of the most beautiful places you would ever come across. If you are a person who is into wildlife photography and animals then this is the place where you should go to. It has an area of approximately 450 kilometres and is labelled as a world heritage site. It is situated in Assam and has the world’s largest population of one-horned rhinoceros. You can also go for various safaris here like the elephant safari or the jeep safari.

3. New Delhi

You must be wondering why haven’t I mentioned a whole city as a place to visit and not a particular place. The reason is that Delhi is home to various places like India Gate, Red Fort, Lotus Temple and the Heart Cathedral. Since this place has so many places where you could visit; I decided to list the entire city as a separate point. Though it has become very polluted recently, Delhi is a very iconic place. The city is really beautiful and is one of the best places for photography in India.

4. Goa

The 4th most photogenic place which comes to my mind is the party capital of India, Goa. There are various places in Goa which has Portuguese settlements and if you take a picture here; trust me, you would feel like you are in a foreign country. Imagine you taking a dive into a beach with your friends; and a friend with a good camera taking your picture. Don’t you think it would be an iconic click? So, what are you waiting for? Book your tickets right now!

5. Jaipur

If I am talking about the most photogenic places in India, how can I not mention the pink city of India, Jaipur? Jaipur is one of the most picture-perfect places you would ever come across in your life. Camels and traditional rickshaws are a part of the city. Amber Fort and City Palace are a few iconic places where you can get clicked. Some other places are Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar and Jal Mahal. It is situated in Rajasthan and is the largest city in the state.

6. Darjeeling

The next place which comes to my mind when I am talking about Photogenic places in India is Darjeeling. There are many hill stations in India but Darjeeling is really very close to my heart. It is like a goldmine for photography. I went to this place last year and it is really very beautiful. There are numerous places for getting clicked. I would recommend you to take a toy train ride here it crosses through many iconic places which would help you improve your camera gallery. Take a hotel near the hills; the view from the window itself would be breathtaking.

7. The Andaman Islands

I don’t know but for some reason, many people have the common misconception that the Andaman Islands are not in India. There are a few disputed places in Nicobar but apart from that, this is the best place to chill out. You can go for scuba diving in this place and the authorities give you an option of getting photographed. If you have been to Goa and looking for a new place to enjoy then you need to get to these islands as soon as possible. Andaman Islands is certainly one of the most photogenic places in India.

8. Rann of Kutch

If you are going to this place then I would recommend you to visit it during the Rann Utsav festival. It is during this festival that this place draws the maximum tourist attraction because of the performances of various artists and musicians. It is situated in Gujrat and is famous for its salt mine which stretches from Gujrat to Sindh situated in Pakistan.

9. Tawang

The next place which comes to my mind is Tawang situated in Andhra Pradesh. Imagine yourself in a snow-covered mountain which falls between India and China. Don’t you feel that the view from the place would be magnificent? Trust me, this is the best place you can think of if you want great pictures. Apart from all this, this place has a great history and cultural heritage. So, make sure you explore this place when you visit it.

10. Aurangabad

If you are a person who is into history then Aurangabad is the place where you want to be. Imagine going to see caves which were built way back in the 2nd century. This place has a lot of religious and cultural significance. It is one of the most iconic places for photography in India.
