India is spread across vast expanse of land and the cities of India exhibit a vast difference in their culture and lifestyle. All these cities have their own legends, historical and architectural legacy that is almost inexhaustible. We have attempted to present a bird eye's view of the kaleidoscopic range of the major Indian cities. Delhi is the political and the commercial capital of India while Mumbai is the city where dreams come true. Mumbai is best known for being the seat of Bollywood, the Indian film industry. All the major Rajasthani cities such as Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur recreate the days of Kings and Queens for use with the extravagant palaces and massive forts. Elephant rides add to this regal experience. The camel rides and the rugged looks of the desert cities of Jaisalmer and Bikaner opens up the whole new world to use where we can enjoy the mesmerizing dexterous steps of folk dancers that are accompanied by the unique haunting folk music of the natives.
Varanasi, Pushkar and Rameshwaram are just some of the holiest cities of Hindus that have their own legends, significance in Indian mythology and scores of temples and religious places. To the South, the cities have more natural beauty to them with vast expance of lush green tropical forests and vast expanse of seashores. The history of Deccan India is important too and legends there might be different from North India but are not less interesting. Besides the rich past, the development in the technological and software sector here is important too. The Sun Temple of Konark, the sensuous temples of Khajuraho, the hill resort of Udhagamandalam or Ooty and the temples of Kanchipuram and Mahabalipuram are just few of the wonders of the South. The cities of India are full of endless treasures and each of them is as interesting as the pearls of the necklace.
