India is a land of humour and siyappa. With people having some funny names, India sure has a list of random names listed on our map too. Some are super embarrassing while some may leave you in splits. Brace yourself to embark upon a ride of the most bizarre names of places in India.
1- Poo, Himachal Pradesh
As funny as it sounds, Poo is a popular hiking town in the Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh. Don’t worry, the renowned apricot orchards and vineyards here have nothing related to its name.
2- Bettiah, Bihar
Cheer up, Girls! There is a Bettiah named little town in the west Champaran district, near Indo-Nepal border, 225 kilometers north-west of Patna.
3- Bhabua, Bihar
No bets on guessing the place! Of course, it’s nestled in the Kaimur district of Bihar. Babua is a term of endearment that is usually used to address a child in Bihari. But why a place?!
4- Bhainsa, Telangana
How ironic is it that Bhainsa is located next to a water body? And next to Bhainsa lies places like Pathri and Umarkhed. You don’t believe us? Try looking for it on map.
5- Barh, Bihar
A station which is obvious to remain overcrowded.
6- Chutia, Assam
India continues to amaze us in such wonderful ways and this one sure is one of the reasons. We don’t know whether to laugh or take serious mortification over this name.
7- Singapur Road (Orrisa)
8- Erode, Tamil Nadu
With this you do not have to think literally. Popular for turmeric and textile manufacturing, the place is a city in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
9- Daru, Jharkhand
Jharkhand bears a place called Daru and no, no ‘daru’ for the wins here! We are upset!
10- Forbesganj, Bihar
If only it could be enlisted in Forbes, Bihar would be proud.
11- Gadha, Gujarat
Gujaratis love to call a ‘stupid person’ Gadha/Gadhedo, but little did we know that they have a state named after this?
12- Gande, Jharkhand
Jharkhand might not be the dirtiest of Indian states but it sure has a place named Gande. I wonder how the natives here react to being referred as Gandeys every time!
13- Kala Bakra, Punjab
Finally, a place dedicated to the supremely powerful clan of black goats. Quick question, is that just for goats (bakra) or humans as well?
14- Kutta, Karnataka
Near to Karnataka-Kerala border, Kutta is a place famous for its wildlife. It’s a mere 10 kilometers away from Nagarhole National Park. Pretty Much true to its name!
15- Lailunga, Chattisgarh
Yes, This is for real. Lailunga is a village panchayat located in the Raigarh district of Chattisgarh state. Keh ke loge or cheen ke, the choice is yours if you happen to tread the Lailunga region.
16- Panauti, Uttar Pradesh
Feeling unlucky today? Think about this forever ill-fated destination Panauti located in Uttar Pradesh. (Sighs in distress!)
17- Suar, Uttar Pradesh
Yes India is too animal Friendly! Suar is a city and a municipal board in Rampur district of Uttar Pradesh.
18. Londa Junction , Northern Karantaka
This Station is located while you are commuting to Goa from Belgaum
