Top 5 “Foreign” Places In India That Cannot Be Missed
India: The “Foreign” Land
Going abroad, traveling the world, is a wish that everyone nurtures but only a few are able to fulfill. Obvious hindrances like money and time prevent many travel enthusiasts from venturing into lands unknown and untraveled, regions famous and infamous. But never be depressed because you are blessed to live in a country that offers the best of the world, and also provides glimpses to foreign lands. Mentioned below are some of the “foreign” places that one can witness right here in India.
The Grecian Malana
The Malanese people have strongly believed that they are descendants of Alexander’s army’s Greek soldiers. The reason to believe that is the lower-house and upper-house system present in the houses of this region, resembling the Greek system.
The Venetian Alleppey
Connected by a network of canals, with the waterways being the transportation of choice and convenience between the houses and its people, Alleppey has been dubbed as ‘Venice of the East’. You don’t need to spend thousands on a trip to Venice, next time.
The Israeli Kasol
Kasol has a huge Israeli population. Added to the mix are Hebrew signboards everywhere. You can also find Hummus everywhere. So once you reach Kasol, you have a hard time figuring out whether you are in India or Israel.
The French Town of Pondicherry
A throwback to the colonial times of France, Portugal and Netherlands, Pondicherry is a charming and quaint place located in Tamil Nadu with architecture reflecting each of the countries above. The most interesting part is how the Tamil households have been seamlessly transformed and adjusted to quaint French villas.
