The 9 Most Insanely Gorgeous Temples in India

When planning a trip to India, there are several attractions that must top every to-do list. Along with the usual suspects (think Agra’s Taj Mahal, Goa’s beaches, and Jaipur’s street shopping vendors), there are also tons of sacred, drop dead gorgeous temples dotting the South Asian country. Each presents something unique, but all offer a space for locals and tourists to congregate and find a moment of peace in an otherwise crowded, chaotic spot on the map. From a lotus-shaped temple to a gilded house of worship floating in the water, here are nine of the most beautiful temples in India.
