    We’ll spend a few days in Delhi while traveling to Himachal this October so this is going to be very helpful. I love all these places but mostly Jaipur. The architecture is just stunning and detail oriented. I’ve lately seen many foreign bloggers being romanticizing these parts of India which I tend to dislike.

  10. Swati Jain

    This is wow blog and especially for the cities you picked. Being from India I can say that these are definitely the cities worth visiting while in India. i
