How Many States and Union Territories In India I Have Visited?

By Mridula Dwivedi January 31, 2012 7 Comments

I do not have the money to travel through the globe but thankfully India in itself is big enough, 28 states and 7 Union Territories. I have to admit in the list below, when I say I have visited a state, it means I have seen a few places and not that I know it well. Also some of the states I have visited but not really as a tourist. So here I go. The hyper links mean I have written a story about it too.

  1. Whoa!! I’ve a long way to catch up with you…

    I’ve visited five Southern states (Karnataka, TN, AP, Kerala & Goa) and two in North – Himachal and Uttarakhand. And one Union territory – Pondy…

  2. very interesting, Mridula!! This encourages me to make such a list of my own!! as of now, looks like i have visited 14states and 4UTs , though some of the visits have been in my childhood… though i remember the trips, have no records :(

  3. Nice list! I love your photos and nice text around them.
    Looking forward to some fantastic tips and stories about seeing Delhi and other places from you.
    I love travelling and have been moving from one place to another from the childhood I remember but I don’t know why when it comes to writing about them it takes a lot of effort for me. Can you give me some tips to start writing about travel.

  4. i am surprised by a ‘no’ against kerala :) mine is mostly the southern states and some central – north – west states. actually i used to keep track of the districts i have visited in these states and actually have a 100% in kerala, karnataka, pondi and goa with a 85% in tn and about 60% in ap :)

  5. So, you had come to Suratkal! Suratkal is in Dakshina Kannada, that is my district :) My sister lives in Suratkal and my native is just about 55km away from Suratkal :) I just read about your post on Suratkal beach through the link … I have been many a times there and I can close my eyes and tell where you have clicked them! Have you been to the beautiful Sadashiva temple just by the side of the light house?

    Ah! So many states you have visited!!!! OMG! You are so lucky! I wish if I could!

Travel Tales from India

I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. I also featured in a National Geographic Skoda Yeti Video.

I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
