India's Top Attraction - Taj Mahal, Agra Published: 05/11/2012

Bamboozling. There’s simply no other word that convincingly captures the enigma that is India. With its in-your-face diversity, from snow-dusted mountains to sun-washed beaches, tranquil temples to feisty festivals, lantern-lit villages to software-supremo cities, it’s hardly surprising that this country has been dubbed the world’s most multidimensional. Love it or loathe it, and most visitors see-saw between the two, India promises to jostle your entire being, and no matter where you go or what you do, it’s a place you’ll never forget. - Lonely Planet

But India as see by Indians is definitely different. The diversity of the country still surprises residents travelling from one part of the country to another and sometimes even within the same state. Each part of the country has it's own charm. Locals of each state have their own favorite vacation destinations. Elderly or the more religious people have their preferred places to visit such as places for pilgrimage - which could be very different from the younger or the modern generations.
