Make reservations at one of the premium family hotels in Hampi and learn about India’s history through its featured tourist sites.  

#3: Kargil War Memorial, Ladakh

Another historical place to experience patriotism during Independence week is the Kargil War Memorial in Ladakh.

Reserve your accommodation at one of the best family resorts in Gujarat, like OYO Townhouse 482 Hotel Terrazzo Suites, and check out this place on your trip to Gujrat. 

#5: Red Fort, Delhi

Enjoy the live celebration at the Red Fort this Independence Day with your loved ones. You can witness the honourable Prime Minister addressing the nation and hoisting the flag. However, since there would be a high rush and security checks, it’s advisable to queue up early morning (by 5 am) to get an entry. So it is better to plan your trip well and come to Delhi in advance. Book the best family resorts in Delhi near Red Fort. Consider OYO 3410 Hotel Shiva Intercontinental, which is only 6KM away from Red Fort.

#6: Jantar Mantar, Rajasthan

Plan a trip to the pink city to visit Jantar Mantar. It has the world’s largest sundial constructed by Maharajah Sawai Jai Singh II for his love of celestial objects. The architecture and science behind this monument prove India has always been beyond its time for centuries. Book a family hotel in Rajasthan, like OYO 37375 Hotel Govindam Plaza, for a comfortable stay near the monument.

#7: Jhansi Fort, Uttar Pradesh

Another incredible destination to visit is the Jhansi fort in Uttar Pradesh. This is the fort where Rani Lakshmi Bai fought against the British and began India’s first battle for independence. Reserve your stay at OYO 92205 Kasturi Inn to explore the significance of Jhansi Fort at your own pace.

#8: Dandi, Surat

Located near Surat, Dandi is known as India’s salt production centre. Travel to this place to learn how Gandhiji, in his non-violent manner, started the Dandi March during India’s struggle for independence.
