6. Madina Masjid, Meghalaya
A four story high glass marvel, where, everything that is good and true in this world is sent a prayer and a thank you, Madina Masjid, is the only and the first glass mosque of India. The mosque is open to all, like all beautiful things should be. But the best time to visit it would be at nights, when the glass glows and glitters.
7. Kamakhya Temple
The venue for the annual Ambubachi Mela, Manasha Puja and Durga Puja, which draws to it thousands of devotees, cannot be missed. Worshipping the Goddess Kamakhya, the temple is an ancient architectural marvel as well. What sets it apart is that it started the entire style of “Nilachal” architecture, which still lends this temple a distinct look that is admirable and definitely a must see.
8. Siroi Hills, Manipur
Misty hills in the background and a spread of beautiful flowers at your feet. Siroi Hills play the mother while the Siroi Lily plays the daughter and, they are inseparable. People tried, people failed. This exotically beautiful, sadly endangered flower, a bluish-pink beauty, when under a microscope, flourishes in the seven colours of the rainbow. For the beautiful hills and this ethereal flower, this one must make your list.
9. Mizo Poets’ Square
Walking among the monuments erected in honour of people whose hearts beat louder than the rest and whose pens wrote heart rending songs, is an experience, and Mizoram offers you that. Mizo poets square first offered its salutations to poets in the year 1986 and since then, it has served as a monument for all the poets that are masters of Mizo literature. How small yet how unknown is the world?
10. Neermahal, Tripura
Sitting atop the lake, Rudrasagar, is the straight out of a fairy tale palace called Neermahal. You can boat your way around there and if you happen to go in the months of July and August, and if you are feeling particularly adventurous and craving adrenalin, boat races await you! For the calmer crowd, you can sit back and enjoy all the migratory birds flocking this lake. I know, pretty palace, pretty birds, bliss! *Sigh*
