After centuries, India continues to mesmerize travellers with its
wealth of landforms, people and cultures. It is a land of vibrant colour, sounds
and scents to which the visitor can never be indifferent. It embraces an
enormous variety of topography, from the snowy peaks of the Himalayas to the
world's highest rainfalls in Assam, the burning plains of the Ganges River and
the southern Dravidian hills and seacoasts. It is a country touched by every
religion and every culture, each of whom have left their mark in a host of
brilliant architecture as varied as the people who created them.
Indian cities reflect the blend of Mogul Muslim and Hindu civilizations as
well as the grand vision of the emperors that built them, while its vast rural
areas are as eternal as time itself. With so much India never bores the
traveller, presenting a new face, a new sensation at each turn.
