India (officially Republic of India), is a land of geographical and cultural diversity. Home to the ancient civilization, India is the world’s largest democracy with a population of over 1.2 billion people. The diverse culture is evident in the convivial co-existence of world’s four major religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism), in over hundreds of active dialects and in celebrations of over 30 festivals in a year.
A holiday in India is a delightful experience amidst the exotic destinations, eclectic people & culture, appetizing food, warm hospitality and a delightful shopping experience. A traveller’s paradise, India has it all from mountains to rivers & seas to forest and deserts.
Delhi, the National Capital Territory is the 8th largest metropolis in the world by population with 16.7 million inhabitants in the Territory at the 2011 Census. Being the largest commercial centre in Northern India and the main power centre of Indian Politics, Delhi is a cosmopolitan city housing lots of migrants and people across cultures.
The city has been the power seat for many rulers, empires who created history. Beyond the historical importance, Delhi has two worlds living together. Once the capital of Islamic India, old Delhi is dotted with crumbling havelis, sanctified mosques, huge specialised traditional markets (like wedding market, book market) and countless restaurants serving mouth-watering Awadh & Indian delicacies lined up in the narrow lanes & by lanes. While the imperial city of New Delhi is structured with wide tree-lined avenues, striking buildings (some from British era and some recent), well planned residential areas and posh shopping zones. Delhi’s proximity to multiple states Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh allows for easy travel across borders and prominent tourist destinations. Agra, Jaipur, Varanasi, Jaisalmer, Udaipur, Dharamshala, Valley of Flowers, Chandigarh and Amritsar are few of the popular destinations around Delhi.
