History is fascinating, especially when you behold the existence of man-made wonders. Those who love to travel will agree that a trip to a historical destination is food for the soul and does wonders for finding a new perspective. Be it a day out at Hampi or a month at Cambodia, historical destinations are meant to be savoured in all their artistic as well as cultural glory.
You don’t have to be a middle-aged person to head to a historical destination. Some histories are so enthralling, that they captivate everyone – whether young or old. From stories of ancient gods to magnificent kingdoms, certain destinations should be on everyone’s bucket list just for their sheer significance in shaping the course of the world.
So whether you are in your early twenties or late sixties, these destinations should be visited at least once.
The world may change into a technologically driven space civilization, but I doubt Hyderabad would ever lose it’s old Nizami charm. From the heavenly fruit biscuits at Karachi bakery to the magnificent Golkonda Fort and of course, the birthplace of one of the best biriyanis in the world – Hyderabad should not be missed by anyone. And if you are looking to spend a rejuvenating, pampered time, you can arrange for comfortable accommodations like resorts in Hyderabad – after all, you will need all the pampering after a long day of travel.
Delhi & Agra
Having been the seat of the Mughal Empire, these two cities are filled with a vibe few places can beat. Being the capital of a fast growing nation has not done much to the contagiously happening vibe of Delhi and Agra – still filled with the musical harmony of the namaz heard at Jama Masjid and the beauty of watching a marble white monument on a moonlit night realizing the power of love. A vacation to Delhi and Agra alone could be a sabbatical for you, but make sure you book hotels in Agra to avoid the rush of the capital city and settle back into the infectious lifestyle.
One of the Char Dhams of Hinduism in the country, seat of two of the greatest kingdoms the world has known and a hot seat for spread of Buddhism – Odisha is as intriguing as it can get. Whether you want to restart your mind sitting by the open-air isles of the Konark Temple or you want to relive the significance of a horrific battle in shaping the country at Kalinga – Odisha has something for a whole array of historical enthusiasts. Not to forget, the state is filled with natural wonders too – from the serene Chilka Lake to the magnificent Udaygiri caves.
