The City

Unlike Mumbai, Delhi, and Goa in India, the city of Raipur doesn't offer a lot of tourism infrastructure for international visitors. There is, however, Kevalya Dham, a huge temple made from sparklingly white marble, which is magical to behold. Visitors can also enjoy nearby waterfalls, bountiful parks, and India's delicious signature cuisine of aromatic curries and fried treats. Looking for an affordable hotel in Raipur, India?
