Mere words cannot do it justice

You have to experience India’s unique culture, landscapes, religion and food for yourself


India, one of the world’s three oldest civilizations, is a land replete with charm and mystery several thousands of years old. Customs differ from one region to the next, and are all colourfully expressed through dance, religion, architecture and music. The incredible wealth of culture is evidenced in everyday life, and in the smiling faces of the locals. Birthplace of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism—with over two billion followers altogether—India is likely one of the most religious places in the world. As such, worship is clearly a central part of everyday life, and even commonplace greetings have a much deeper meaning… Namaste.

India is so incredibly beautiful, it’s easy to imagine that Divine intervention somehow played a role in its creation. From the snow-covered Himalayas of the north, to the arid Thar Desert of the west, the lagoons and lakes (backwaters of Kerala) of the south and, of course, Udaipur, the city of lakes in the heart of it all, India’s allure is endless. Jungles, colourful birds, tigers, temples and seashores covered in lush vegetation create a landscape that will simply take your breath away. A total of 25 cultural sites and 7 natural sites in India have been classified by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. They include:

The Taj Mahal

Located in the heart of an immense 17-hectare Mughal garden, the Taj Mahal is considered the architectural crown jewel of Indo-Islamic art.

Agra Fort

Within its 2.5-km-long enclosure walls, this powerful fortress of red sandstone includes several fairy-tale palaces, audience halls and two very beautiful mosques.

Fatehpur Sikri

The City of Victory, built in the latter half of the XVIth century, boasts several monuments and temples, including of the greatest mosques in India, Jama Masjid.

Jantar Mantar, Jaipur

This astronomical observation site showcases the skills acquired by the court of a scholarly prince at the end of the Mughal period.

Qutb Minar, Delhi

Built in the early XIIIth century, a few kilometres south of Delhi, this minaret offers spectacular views of the surrounding landscapes. The neighbouring architectural area contains funerary buildings, the magnificent Alai-Darwaza Gate and two mosques.

 

A land of intense contrasts, India is, on the one hand, deeply rooted in tradition and, on the other hand, also extremely modern. So, you’re as likely to come across a snake charmer as you are a computer geek (The country is, after all, the world’s leader in computer technology)!

So, what are you waiting for? Come explore this land of many faces.
