India. A land of remarkable diversity – from ancient traditions and artistic heritage to magnificent landscapes and culinary creations – India will ignite your curiosity, shake your senses and warm your soul with colour. India's dramatic terrain is breath-taking, exquisite temples and palaces rise majestically into the sky, the Taj Mahal being one of the great wonders of the world. Spirituality is the common characteristic painted across the vast and varied canvas that is contemporary India. The multitude of sacred sites and rituals are testament to the country's long, colourful, and sometimes tumultuous religious history. India hosts some of the world's most divine devotional celebrations many based around the sacred river Ganges, whilst formidable city parades celebrating auspicious events on the religious calendar and simple village harvest fairs pay homage to locally worshipped deity.
