Kanpur

Kanpur, situated on the banks of the holy river Ganga, stands as one of North India's major industrial centers with its own historical, religious and commercial importance. It is believed to be founded by king Hindu Singh of the erstwhile state of Sachendi. During the war of 1857, it was the headquarters of a large Indian garrison and was called 'Cawnpore'. It still bears landmarks of the British Raj.  Today, it is essentially a commercial and industrial center. Besides its leather industry a large number of textile, plastic and other factories are located here. For this reason, Kanpur is also known as, `the Manchester of the East'. Best time to visit Kanpur is October to March.
