It might come as a surprise, but then there are some places in India where no Indians are allowed. Wonder what and where are these places? Have a look:
1. “Foreigners Only” Beach, Goa
Goa is beloved to Indians and foreign tourists who come to India. And to better lodge the latter, the Goa government has some beaches specially reserved for foreigners due to reasons we don’t need to tell you about.
2. North Sentinel Island, Andaman Islands
Sentinel Island is one of the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal, which also includes South Sentinel Island. The north sentinel is home to the Sentinelese tribe that is aggressive in nature and will possibly kill you if you try to breach the space of people on the island. They arm themselves with bows and arrows and use them against outsiders.
3. Broadlands Hotel, Chennai
There is a lodge in Chennai which doesn’t let Indians set their foot inside its premises. Not especially Indians but anyone who doesn’t have a foreign passport is sent back. The hotel has been given a pseudonym ‘Highlands’. It was the residence of a former Nawab, and now it only serves the people with foreign passports.
4. ‘Foreigners Only’ beach, Puducherry
Like Goa, some beaches in Puducherry also are specially reserved for foreigners to make them feel at home.
5. Russian Colony, Kundankulam
This is actually a residential colony near Kundankulam Nuclear Power Project. Thus, Indians are not allowed to venture around the space and is officially for Russian scientists who work at the power plant.
6. Uno-In Hotel, Bangalore
The Uno-In Hotel was built in Bangalore in 2012 to accommodate the growing corporate Japanese population in the city. The hotel in 2014 was alleged to have denied entry to Indians and thus was shut down on charges of racial discrimination.
