India is home to many bookish towns and villages that are a bibliophile's paradise. They offer a spiritual escape into a world of fantasy and imagination, where literature from different eras, genres, and authors elevates the cultural essence of these places to a higher level.

The book gems of India create a unique atmospheric world that attracts bibliophiles from all over the world. Newsbytesapp.com has prepared a list of routes for literature lovers.

Bhilar village in Maharashtra state

Bhilar, a small village near Panchgani in Maharashtra, has been recognized as the first book village in the country. It has about 25 reading rooms and mini-libraries where you can find books on poetry, folk literature, autobiography, religion, ecology, and history. It is interesting that the exterior of each room/house depicts all genres, so be sure to take a walk.

College Street in Kolkata

A local street called "Boi Para" (book colony), the 900-meter-long College Street in Kolkata witnesses a huge flow of students, scholars and readers every day, as it is home to several bookstores in an old charming place.

From rare finds such as ancient manuscripts to contemporary publications about the modern world, you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to what to buy.

Daryaganj and Nai Sarak in Delhi

The national capital also has an ideal place that is a real treasure trove for bookworms. It's a weekly episode at Daryaganj in Delhi, where street vendors come up with makeshift stalls and offer both new and used books at low prices. Another gem of the city is Nai Sarak, which is teeming with readers of all genres.

Avenue Road in Bengaluru

Avenue Road is where the reading people of Bengaluru find their heart. The street is lined with historic buildings, restaurants and, of course, reading rooms and libraries with stacks of books to choose from.

From thematic books such as management and finance to fiction, science fiction, romance, self-help and more, there is something for everyone at reasonable prices.

Flora Fountain in Mumbai

Mumbai's contribution to the list of bookish cities in India is the Flora Fountain. This place is full of the most famous and oldest bookstores, where you can find literature of various genres. There are also many open libraries where you can donate a book or borrow one to read in peace. Some books are also available for rent.
