Between places frequented by tourists because of the natural beauty and places that call out to travellers with curious and adventurous mind, there is a whole different category which comprise of places we know about either because of a food item or a work of art. These are not necessarily big and famous cities but we have all heard of them. For instance, we all know about Chennapatna toy or the gorgeous Kutch embroidery work. These are region specific and are the best where quality and characteristics are concerned.
