kanpur Overview

It is the eleventh-most populous city in India and the major industrial hub with in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
It is one of the oldest industrial townships of North India. It has a metropolitan area of over 1,640 square kilometres (630 sq miles) and a city area of around 829 km2 with an approximate population of 3 million inhabitants in its area.
Not in current time but during the British rule Kanpur(then called Cawnpore) was known as "Manchester of India". It is largest producer of leather in India.
So as it is clear, it is not much of a tourist destination, its mostly industrial but if at all you want to see how the best of leather is made this may be just the place.
