Land of mingling traditions and vibrant diversity, with a breathtaking historical timeline offers incredible mysteries to unfold and cherish for a lifetime. Words seem less to describe this land, however i tired my best to do so. I have tried to cover the major aspects of the land but there is much more to it than described below. This just a glimpse of India.
Indian traditional art has attracted famous globe trotters from around the world who could not help but gasp at the wonders man created by a chisel and hammer
Miniature painting in India had been a tradition, especially during the Mughals. The depiction of wars, elaborated rituals, courtly life, hunting games and portraits of Kings have been prominent.
THE ANDAMAN ISLANDS
If you are travelling to Andaman Islands you always have a choice. You can go either go island hopping or just stay put in one island and let life pass you by. You can either jump from ferry to ferry, explore new and unexplored beaches or just laze in one and watch nature spread her moody canvas on the sky and the sea.
it doesn’t take long to get up into the quieter, greener areas where tall pines rise above what could almost be English country lanes. Ooty, ‘the Queen of Hill Stations’, mixes up Indian bustle and Hindu temples with lovely parks and gardens and charming Raj-era bungalows, the latter providing its most atmospheric (and most expensive)
THE NORTH EAST
Although it is very difficult to choose any particular destination tour or activity that you should try in North India, yet there are few things must to do while on your North East travel. Like sipping hot cup of tea at Assam tea gardens or sighting one horned Rhino at Kaziranga on elephant safari or enjoying rain in Cherrapunji the only place in the world that gets all the year round, and lot more. The North East blooms in the lap of Himalayas.
Goa is visited by large numbers of international and domestic tourists each year for its beaches, places of worship and world heritage architecture. It has rich flora and fauna, owing to its location on the Western Ghat range, a biodiversity hotspot.
Rajasthan is a beautiful amalgamation of the old and new; the ancient and the modern. Rajasthan, or the Land of Kings, is true to its name with lavish forts and majestic palaces that are apt reminders of a rich, romantic past that speaks of heroism, honor and chivalry. Amidst a stark desert and surrounded by the Aravallis, India’s oldest mountain range, the State stands out like a beacon, attracting travelers with its rich art and culture.
THE PARADISE KASHMIR
Jammu and Kashmir combines three incredibly different worlds into one state. Hindu Jammu, the state’s major railhead, is a busy hub for domestic pilgrims. Muslim Kashmir is India’s Switzerland, attracting hoards of local tourists seeking cool summer air, alpine scenery and Srinagar’s romantic houseboat accommodation. For most foreigners, Jammu and Kashmir’s greatest attraction is the Himalayan land of Ladakh, whose disarmingly friendly, ethno-linguistically Tibetan people are predominantly Buddhist. Their timeless monasteries are set between arid canyons and soaring peaks with emerald-green villages nestled photogenically in highland deserts
BEAUTY ENDOWED IN THE JEWELS AND ORNAMENTS
Indian mega malls may be popping up like monsoon frogs, but the age-old bazaar – with its mix of crowds and spices, flowers and altars – is still where it’s at. India’s markets have something you want, guaranteed (though you may not have known you wanted it), with a fun haggle to go with it. The range of Technicolor saris, glittering gold and silver bling, mounds of rainbow vermilion, aromatic fresh spices, stainless-steel head massagers, bangles and bobby pins, motorcycle bumper stickers, heaping piles of fruit, Bollywood-star-silkscreened pajamas, and marigold and coconut offerings is, well, astounding.
The traditional food of India has been widely appreciated for its fabulous use of herbs and spices. Indian cuisine is known for its large assortment of dishes. The dishes are aromatic and tempting. One cannot go without helping oneself to another serving of the dishes rich in flavor and tradition.

THE INDIAN SNACKS SERVE AS APPETIZERS TO THE MAIN COURSE. EVENING TEA IN INDIA IS USUALLY ACCOMPANIED BY A PLATEFUL OF THESE SUMPTUOUS SNACKS. I HAVE ALREADY BEGUN TO FEEL HUNGRY …
Indians are warm and welcoming. You will not find a place where people would not come forward to help you or greet you whether you be a local resident or a tourist.
‘ATITHI DEVO BHAVA”- GUEST IS GOD is the motto of Indians.
If you visit us once, you would never wish to leave the country. India is a land of paradise. It has everything to offer from rooted culture to western influences blended with the indian tradition, from street food to a five starer restaurant, from diversity to a strong unity.
This is the beauty of my land…
