Answer:

The architecture of the building in picture no. 1 gives the idea that it may be a Hindu temple. The tall but not round structure at the top is much like what we find in Hindu temples. It has a sanctum sanatorium in which the idol of the chief deity is installed.

The picture no. 2 seems to be a mausoleum. It is so because there is no place for prayer etc, which is the hallmark of a religious place. Or it may be burj of a palace in Rajasthan.

Picture no. 3 is clearly a folk dance. The dresses of the girl and the boy brings to mind Maharashtra. Hence it is very likely to be a folk dance of Maharashtra.

Picture no. 4 is a tea garden. Such tea gardens are found in Assam or Darjeeling or Ootacumand in Tamil Nadu.

Picture no. 5 gives the picture of a river and a series of temples by its side. It is a religious place, Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh.
