The most obviously romantic city in India is arguably Udaipur in Rajasthan, with its opulent pink palaces looking out over a string of tranquil lakes. While hotels have taken over the lakefront, explore the city’s winding backstreets to get a feel for Udaipur’s early days as you meander through traditional Havelis and ancient bazaars. If you prefer, you can approach the lovely Taj Lake Palace from the sea and savor its alluring bygone charm.
There are numerous incredibly beautiful locations to stay in Udaipur, many of them on Lake Pichola. One of the best was constructed in the 18th century, the Amet Haveli. The restaurant and pool are exquisite, and the accommodations feature stunning lakeside views.

There aren’t many more romantic sunsets than this. Travelers to Kanyakumari the southernmost part of India will be rewarded with a spectacular sunset and the moon rising during Chitra Pournami, or full moon.

Kanyakumari, which is nearly completely encircled by the sea, is where the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea meet the Bay of Bengal. It is also a well-known pilgrimage place, and the seaside, 3,000-year-old Bhaghavathy Amman temple is well worth a visit.

It was made to hold the remains of Mumtaz Mahal, the favorite wife of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Its construction required more than 20 years and roughly 20,000 men, and it was made from rare materials and semiprecious stones from all over the world. There’s no denying that this wonder of the world is extremely spectacular, despite the fact that it is pompous and excessive.
