India is such a diverse country, both in terms of landscape and culture. India has everything from snow covered mountains to sandy beaches. The culture includes serene temples, festivals, small villages and large cities.
I recommend you take a tour of India when visiting this vast country. My favorite is a spiritual tour of India that will take you to temples and historic sites that help you to connect with all that India has to offer. You can also take a meditation or a yoga retreat in one of Indias many ashrams.
Perhaps the most well-known site in India is the Taj Mahal. This magnificent structure is one of the wonders of the world and should be included in your visit. It was originally constructed in memory of the third wife of a Mughal emperor and symbolizes love.
The Indian holy city Varanasi is thought to be one of the seven holiest cities. The Hindus believe that if you die here you will have an instant gateway to liberation from the cycle of life, death and reincarnation. You can also visit Sarnath, which is the place where Lord Buddha gave his very first sermon.
Delhi is a magnificent city that is home to many historical wonders. Most tours of Delhi include a visit to Jama Masjid, the main mosque of Old Delhi. Delhi is the capital of India and is a wonderful mixture of modern and ancient times.
One of the more popular sites to visit in India is the town of Khajuraho, which has the largest group of Jain and medieval temples. These temples are most famous for their Kama Sutra erotic sculptures. This fascinating group of monuments is considered to be one of the seven wonders of India.
India is home to some beautiful landscapes and impressive wildlife. In Ranthambore, you can visit the national park and enjoy a safari drive to experience the animals that live in the area. You can also visit the scrublands and lakes as you enjoy the beauty of nature in this spectacular place.
India is a mesmerizing country and offers a wide variety of attractions for tourists. This land has an amazing history and makes you feel like you have entered an entirely different world. A tour of India is a glorious experience that will leave you with many amazing memories.
