Gorakhpur is a highly revered city located in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Most of the Gorakhpur attractions have great significance among Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic, Sikh and Jain people. Thus, the city of Gorakhpur epitomises an assimilation of almost all major religions in India. Apart from religious significance, this city also has an aura of freedom struggle of India. Due to the violence that erupted in Chauri Chaura near Gorakhpur, Mahatma Gandhi withdrew the famous Non-Cooperation Movement. Geographically, Gorakhpur is a bowl-shaped city located on the basin of the Rohini and Rapti rivers. These rivers, along with Ramgarh Tal in the south, allow cool breeze into the city.
Among popular attractions, Ramgarh Tal ranks high in the list of tourist places in Gorakhpur. Boating on this lake is a predominant recreational activity for tourists. In addition, travellers can see the Gita Press which has archives of more than 3500 manuscripts which embody 100 interpretations of the great Hindu epic, Gita. There are several important places of worship too, like Imambara, which is an ancient Islamic shrine renowned for gold and silver Tajia and a unique smoke fire known as 'dhunj'. The Gorakhnath Temple is a historical shrine in the city which has magically survived several attacks by the Mughals and still displays an attractive architectural style.
During their Gorakhpur tour, visitors can also visit the Kushmi Forest where travellers can see monkeys, deer and foxes in their natural habitat. Furthermore, tourists can explore a beautiful artificial sky by visiting the Veer Bahadur Singh Planetarium. Moreover, to rejuvenate mind and body, tourists can pay a visit at the Arogya Temple. Kapilvastu, Lumbini, Geeta Vatika and Vishnu Mandir are other popular tourist hotspots which must be visited.
