Muslim Friendly Amenities

Muslim travellers can easily enjoy the delicious Indian halal cuisine while exploring the country. Whether you’re a Muslim family looking for something suitable for the little ones, or a Muslim couple searching for fine dining to enjoy your halal honeymoon, India is home to plenty of Muslim friendly restaurants. There are places you simply have to try as a rite of passage in India including Haji Ali's Juice Centre in Mumbai for the perfect Falooda to Nizam's Kathi Kebab in New Delhi.

Surprisingly, India is home to more mosques than most Islamic states due to it's sheer Muslim population and vast land mass. This allows Muslim travellers plenty of options to discover and explore India’s mosques. The Cheraman Juma Mosque in Kerala is cited as the oldest mosque in  India and legend claims it was built in 629 AD. In New Delhi, the Jama Masjid is iconic and head south to Hyderabad's Mecca Mosque.
If it's your first trip to India, don’t try to cover too much ground. Instead, spend more time at each of your selected destinations. For Muslim couples looking to go off the beaten path, head to the wonderful Oberoi in Udaipur or the Taj Palace in Mumbai for a spectacular experience.
