Every city in India has certain iconic locations which capture the very essence of the place. Like the picturesque view of river Ganga flowing beneath the Howrah Bridge or the Bandra-Worli Sea Link in Mumbai, seeing a picture of which you are immediately reminded of the place!
Which is why when Indian Forest Services officer Parveen Kaswan took to Twitter to ask people online to post a picture of their city without naming it, many were quick to post iconic landscapes, monuments, and buildings which define their city.
One picture which defines your city. Let’s see how many are able to identify it.

Isn’t it amazing how every city in India has it’s own distinctiveness yet is similar? Maybe that is what makes our country unique!
