India, as you probably are aware, is one massive place. I was there two years ago and was blown away by how vast and variegated the country is. It is as true hodgepodge of cultures, languages, foods and peoples. Anyone who tells you they’ve seen India, well, unless they explain that they were there for a year or more, don’t believe them.
But with this in mind, there are lots of small, lesser-known places in India that are always worth checking out The Washington Post, in fact, runs a great little piece on exactly that, interesting out of the way spots that will help you come to know the country better. Definitely worth a read.
