Uttar Pradesh

 

Uttar Pradesh have been home to many commotions, the latest being the struggle of a seperate Uttrakhand consisting of the hills of Kumaon and Garhwal. In November of year 2000, Uttrakhand was formed out of Uttar Pradesh, leaving Uttar Pradesh almost mountainless. It also doesn't have any coastline. Nevertheless, the attraction of UP still remains, primarily due to Haridwar and Rishikesh, and cities like Lucknow. It also serves as the gateway to most places of Uttarahand. UP also hold tremendous political importance in the Indian scenerio. The state has gifted quite a few prime ministers and political honchos to the country. 

The greatest attraction of UP is however, the Taj Mahal, situated in Agra. Every year, millions flock to the Taj to witness its eternal beauty. To know more about the Taj, Click here.
