There’s much more to India than merely being the land of some of the greatest mythological stories ever told— it’s the land of some of the biggest mysteries as well. From the tiny village where most of the population comprises of twins, to the controversial history of one of the seven wonders of the world, Taj Mahal, India is home to some biggest puzzles of the world. Here are six such unsolved mysteries of India:
