Seeking something more than the common themes seen in the average country? Do you want to get absorbed in vibrant culture and visual awe?
If this is what you seek, look to India!
This South Asian paradise holds defined diversity in both its land and its people, and the beauty of both is unrivalled. Being the second-most populous country in the world, there are countless faces for you to meet there. However, this does not mean that every area will be crowded with people as far as the eye can see. The rural areas of the country alone are enough reason to visit for their beautiful nature. India is also renowned for its food, enhanced with its rich spices to bring flavours of greatness to the taste buds.
While you’re there…
Arguably one of the best times to visit India is during the period in which the Holi Festival is celebrated. Also known as the Festival of Colours, Festival of Spring, and Festival of Love, this festival celebrates the arrival of spring after winter, and takes place over two days. The vibrant colours of the powders used during this festival are truly an incredible sight to see.
One of India’s most recognizable buildings is the Taj Mahal. This ivory-white marble mausoleum is one of the 7 wonders of the world and is bound to a truly powerful love story that almost rivals its stunning Islamic-styled architecture. Named after Mumatz Mahal, wife of Emperor Shah Jahan, the construction of Taj Mahal began in 1632, and took over 20,000 workers to complete its construction by the year 1648. During the right time of day, the area adapts a golden atmosphere, adding to the beauty of this mausoleum. The Taj Mahal should be on the bucket list of anyone who hopes to travel the world.
The Holy City of Varanasi is a city dating back to the 8th Century BC, and is still inhabited to this day. This city plays a major role for Hindus, acting as a point of Pilgrimage for Hindus and is associated with the Ganges River, also a religious symbol of great importance to the Hindu faith. Varanasi offers an experience for those outside of the Hindu religion, too. Every corner turned while here offers a spectacle for all to appreciate, as the beauty of the city and its surroundings are inescapable. One of the many reasons to visit here is the Kashi Vishwanath Temple. Also known as the Golden Temple, it is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas, the holiest of temples of the Hindu Lord Shiva. While in the city, the Banaras Hindu University is also worth seeing. Established in 1917, the university is quite famous for its incredible library, featuring over a million books!
