Clicking pictures is just a simple act for some, while it’s a hardcore passion for others. If you fall in the second group, you have come to the right place. Here, we will introduce you to certain places in India that lure photographers in hordes. These places include jaw-dropping landscapes, magnificent monuments, and all other elements that test your skills with a camera.

Photogenic-Spots-and-Places-in-India

Taj Mahal, Agra

The legendary and historic Taj Mahal deserves to be on the top of the list.  This ivory-white marble mausoleum, also one of ‘The New 7 Wonders of the World’, was built on the orders of Emperor Shah Jahan in the loving memory of his deceased wife. Photographers will be interested to know that Taj Mahal subtly changes its colour throughout the day. It has a pinkish hue in the morning, milky white in the evening, and golden at night when illuminated by the moon.

 

Ladakh  

Ladakh has jagged and arid mountains, Buddhist monasteries, small hamlets, and is also home to over 200 species of birds. The best time for photography here is from July to September. The varied landscapes are expansive. Placing them in a single frame is not quite easy!  You need to stand at the right point and have the precise angle to get the perfect shot. Your sturdy tripod will prove to be extremely useful in this terrain.

 

Varanasi

Also named as ‘Benaras’, Varanasi has a distinct spiritual and classic charm. The destination is home to numerous Hindu temples such as Bharat Mata Mandir, Sankat Mochan Mandir, Annapurna Devi Mandir, and Kashi Vishwanath Temple. It’s a fine skill to catch the holiness of this magical city and sacred ceremonies in the frame of your camera. A prime lens with an F value around 2.8 also aids you to obtain low-light shots, particularly during the Ganga aarti.

 

Golden Temple, Amritsar

The Golden Temple of Amritsar is a religious place for Sikhs and represents brotherhood and equality. The gold surface of the temple reflects in the waters of the sarovar (pond) here. Photography is permitted only in the outer Parikarma. Special permission for photography inside The Golden Temple may be requested from the President/Sec. (SGPC) or Manager (Golden Temple).

 

Kerala

Also called ‘God’s Own Country’, Kerala amazes people with its jaw-dropping backwaters, glittering beaches, majestic forts, fishermen-in-action, and many other colourful sights. Avoid wearing a watch during wildlife photography as the glint of the sun on your watch may hit the eyes of the animals. Towns such as Cochin, Munnar, and Alleppey are known for exceptional photography sites.
