Best Indian Cities


The Top Ten

1 Bangalore

Sure to be first forget evrything else, if any other city can beat this weather and the music scene ranging from heavy metal to rap, amazing people friendly to the core surrounded by trees and lovely forests in the outskirts, home the biggest mall in India, the best food, the pub capital, IT capital, classical music capital (carnatic0 rock music capital of India

I can't believe there is competator for bangalore, its world's 2nd best city, obviously it should be number 1 here

3 New Delhi New Delhi New Delhi is the capital and seat of government of India. It is also a municipality and district in Delhi and serves as the seat of Government of Delhi.

Delhi, the capital of India has a rich history and culture. Visitors are always awed by the amazing juxtaposition of modernity and rich Indian culture of Delhi.

It has remnants of mosques, forts, gardens of Mughal era. And the best places where you will find the multicultural flavor of Delhi are the markets.

Over the years, influx of migrants is on the rise in the capital, we give you ten reasons why hoards of migrants want to live in Delhi:

The best city in India without any doubt. Is rapidly becoming the first Indian world city. Beautiful road infrastructure, great public transport, a model merto rail which is being copied by other cities in India and even elsewhere in the region. Home to huge parks and well maintained monuments. Truly the most livable city in India today.

New Delhi.. Capital region is the most beautiful man made place in India.
Cleanest, systematised and synchronised...

Overall, New Delhi is the best city in India in terms of infrastructure, greenliness, and cleanliness but in terms of night safety and high population Delhi government has to take some certain steps.

4 Chennai

Fastest developing city in India, It's lady chief minister's recent plans bring good improvement to the city even though as usual corruption allegation

Chennai is the only city have no slum area like the one in Mumbai and in Kolkata. I agree bangaluru is # 01, Chandigarh is #02, Goa, Ahmedabad and Jaipur were at #03, #04 & #05. Mumbai may be #06 and Delhi #07. Chennai and Hyderabad shall be #08 & #09 and Kolkata is the 10th.

Chennai is the best city in India. It is the second oldest corporation in the world after London. So IT city, silicon city, pink city, green city are nothing in front of the city like Chennai.

Music capital of India- carnatic music, home to legendary composers like Ilaiyaraaja and AR Rhaman and budding composers like Anirudh
Gateway to South India
One of the most important preservation site for Tamil Language (one of the oldest languages still widely spoken)
Great temples...although the city of Madurai might beat Chennai for the best temple city of India

5 Chandigarh

I'm a Delhihight, and have been to Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Jaipur, Calcutta, and some places in U.P. the thing I experienced in Chandigarh is that people don't throw waste on roads, none of the vehicle I saw parked on roadside or no parking so as I experienced good traffic mentality, no grocery or general stores in residential premises, no hawkers on footpaths, more greenery less honking, One could say a civilized place to visit.

The cleanest and the best designed... That's enough

IT is the most beautiful City and safe in the Our India net and clean

Best road among any Indian city, Most clean, so easy to work with government departments, relax, very safe, no hooliganism, more or less free from political vandalism, a few hours from best hill stations...

6 Kolkata

You need a little time to understand the mood and the internal life-flow of this city. It is a city of emotion, culture, poetry and friendship. Once you understand that, it opens its door to the one who is willing to share and love. I donot think any other city in India is so open to all irrespective of language, caste and creed. It is the best place to live without fear.

Kolkata is the land of joy, literacy, and a beautiful, calm is india's best city as it contains all the best features.kolkata sweets are very famous and people of Kolkata are always warm towards each other. It is no1

Kolkata is really an awesome city, a city where joy seems to be never-ending. It's the number 1 city in India.

The best city to live in. The bad image it has got is absolutely false. Awesome place, technologically advance city, beautiful parks and scenic beauty. The best thing is that the people there are one of the nicest and kindest and simplest people. Not to forget, one of the safest cities in India..

In fact its one of the best cities :culturally rich, friendly caring people, very well connected to all cities, mineral rich and most fertile soil,
I have lived there almost 5 years and found this city awesome. As contrary to popular belief, people are not uneducated, rather they are higly educated and brainy people who are still simple from heart!

Great city in India

This a historical city from gupt moria till the modern era.
