This is just unbelievable! When I first got to know about this that there are some places in India where Indians are not allowed, I was like, What????? Seriously, we think we are living in the modern world but that’s more than a shock to every Indian. They are not even permitted to take entry in some of the places of their nation.
You might be wondering what are those unique places where Indian citizens entry is restricted. Well another shocking thing is that these places are owned by some Indians but foreigners can easily take entry not the Indians. I really can’t digest this! Would you?
Listed down are the places of India where Indians entry is banned.

7 Places in India where Indians are not Allowed
1. “Foreigners only” Beaches , Goa
There are a number of beach shack and restaurant owners in Goa who openly prefer foreign tourists over Indian people. An ultra-popular shack (name withheld) at Arambol Beach does not rent out its rooms to Indians at all because they are “perennial lechers”. I mean this is totally disgusting. We love Goa and such gestures make so many differences 🙁

7. A Museum Near Agra
I was reading some articles related to this issue and there I got very surprising experience of an Indian-“There is a museum of objects made of marble (perhaps named Kalakriti or Kalagram) near Taj Mahal in Agra. The guard stopped us from entering the museum and told us that Indians are mostly not allowed because the items inside the museum are very costly and only those who look like they can afford those items are allowed inside. Though every foreigner, whether or not he/she could afford the items, was allowed.”
What can we call it? Are we Indians really that bad or is this just a clear case of discrimination? We can’t even explore our own nation. We are banned! We are getting humiliated!
