Where to go
Take a domestic IndiGo flight to the architectural city of Bhubaneswar, a famous pilgrimage destination for Buddhists and Hindu pilgrims. This is one of the three countries that make up the golden temple triangle of Eastern India. Go temple-hopping to more than 400 different temples in the Old Town or make a trip to the Dhauligiri Hills, a pilgrimage site for Buddhists.

Another popular destination to visit is the garden city of Bangalore. Well-known for its exotic flora and fauna, the Lal Bagh Botanic Gardens is a must-visit. Visitors can stroll around the park and enjoy the breathtaking view of the famous tree-lined lake. Nature lovers should visit the Hebbal Lake and the Koli Hills, both homes to exotic flora and fauna. Good views await -- but remember not to feed the monkeys that roam the area!
