Kanpur Travel Guide

Kanpur in central Uttar Pradesh is the largest city in the region and its most important industrial centre. Situated on the southwestern bank of the river Ganga, it is also one of the most polluted cities in the world. The erstwhile British garrison town of ‘Cawnpore,’ it later transformed into an industrial hub with the setting up cotton mills and leather factories. Unlike other settlements along the sacred river, the ghats (river landings used for bathing and washing) of Kanpur are in a state of disrepair and of little significance to visitors. Most visitors come to this busy crowded city for business.

Do not forget to try the famous Gujia (Karanji) of Kanpur- a sweet Indian dumpling filled with almond, raisin and coconut mixture. Sure you will not be able to resist from taking some home with you!
