Known mostly for housing the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee is also fast emerging to be a popular tourist destination, due to its immense scenic beauty. Once here, tourists also like to take excursions to Rishikesh and Haridwar.
Mostly an industrial city, Roorkee was once the capital of Mughal Mahal in Akbar's reign and is, therefore, one of the oldest cities in India. Largely known for the Roorkee Cantonment, one of the oldest cantonments in the country, the city is located on the banks of the Ganges canal. Tourists like to visit the War Memorial, along with going for boat rides at the Roorkee Boat Club. The beautiful and sprawling campus of IIT Roorkee makes the excellent location for long walks, and walking along the Canal bankside is also a visual treat. The Himalayan Eco Garden also attracts a lot of tourists and is replete with various varieties of trees and shrubs.

Apart from the IIT, Roorkee is also home to some famous local attractions including War Memorial, beautiful temples (Shiv Mandir, Prem Mandir), Bann Ganga Wetland and the Boat Club. The city is also a shopper’s delight with many local markets including Main Bazar and Sapper Bazar and don’t forget to shop for souvenirs as Roorkee is famous for its drawing industry.
