Places to See in Ghaziabad



Thakurdwara Temple

This old Hindu temple is situated in the Ajrara village near Ghaziabad. The resident deity is said to possess magical powers whose blessings have caused many miracles. It is said that king Ajay Pal constructed this temple during his reign to impress the deity he worshipped.
Located idyllically beside the quietly flowing Kali Nadi, the atmosphere surrounding the holy temple is undeniably soothing. The architecture and colorful design of the shrine are truly praiseworthy. The fabled Bhakra Nangal dam- the tallest in India, is a mere 3 km drive from the temple and is worth a visit for its marvellous engineering and serene atmosphere.

Dudheshwar Nath Mandir

The Dudheshwar Nath Mandir is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is one of the most famous local temples of Ghaziabad. Its origin is said to have initiated from a strange event that took place many thousands of years ago. It is said that a cow milked herself and filled up a pit dug by her on the ground. Hindu devotees built a temple on that very spot dedicated to Lord Shiva. This colorful and vibrant temple is a local favourite fitting enough to be added to the attractions list of Ghaziabad. It's definitely worth a visit to witness some mythological legends.

Sai Upvan

A scenic monastery that houses the shrine of the revered saint Sai Baba, Sai Upavan is a true haven to help one dive into spiritual depths of peace and harmony. Idyllically located beside the Grand Trunk road, the large monastery is surrounded by peaceful and quaint gardens and orchards that add to the piousness of the place. Seeking blessings from Sai Baba is truly worth the effort when one realizes the unique charm of Sai Upvan. The Hindon River flows nearby and provides another attractive spot for seekers of some quality time who wish to let peace rule their mind and bodies.

Garhmukteshwar

Garhmukteshwar is a small and quaint town situated in Hapur district not far from Ghaziabad. The river Ganges flows past the town which alleviates the cultural and aesthetic significance of the town. A town dotted with ghats and temples, Garhmukteshwar resembles something otherworldly during the festival of Dussehra. An annual bathing fair is organized in Garhmukteshwar during Dussehra when close to a million people take a dip in the holy waters of the Ganges. Witnessing this grand spectacle is a unique experience that is hardly seen anywhere in the world. An ancient 13th century mosque built by the powerful monarch Giasuddin Balban is another attraction of the town.
