Though there are a lot of places that calls for a visit, there are quite a few frequently visited attractions in our country. We tend to hear about these places often and even visit them several times. Of course, that doesn't mean they are not beautiful or don't deserve to be on the list. In fact, these destinations are so charming that they are almost always overcrowded. To avoid it, better visit in the off-seasons to enjoy the real beauty of these destinations.
Come, let us go through the list of clichéd popular places in India!
