Indore, often referred to as the second commercial capital of the country after Mumbai has added another feather in its illustrious cap by topping the list of cities in Government’s cleanliness survey – Swacch Survekshan 2018. This is second year in a row Indore has come out trumps but what makes the achievement more remarkable this year is the fact that the survey included 4200 cities. But cleanliness isn’t the only area where Indore has raised the bar. The thriving commercial hub with rich history is a buzzing student city for a number of reasons.
Architectural marvels take your breath away
The rich heritage of the city is showcased in its many beautiful buildings that take you back to the golden period of Holkar Dynasty.
