India! Its stories will bring you the farthest back in history. It has one of the most ancient living civilizations, about 10,000 years old

  • City of Agra
    See the Taj Mahal. Built as a monument of eternal love, by the Moghul emperor Shah Jehan for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. It took 17 years to complete this splendid white mausoleum. It incorporates Persian, Turkish, and Indian styles of architecture. 
  • City of Mumbai
    A must visit if you love Indian culture. Mumbai was originally known as Bombay. It is one of the most famous, bustling, cosmopolitan cities in India. It is the financial, industrial, and the fashion center of India, the fashion trends set by the movie industry which is also known as 'Bollywood'. Teeming with over 16 million people it is a city that never sleeps!

  • Jaipur city
    Also called the pink city. Due to the red sandstone used to build the palaces is in the northern part of India in the state of Rajasthan. Jaipur is famous for its exquisite jewellery, handicrafts, handmade rugs, textiles, handmade quilts, and comforters. Jaipur has a timeless appeal in its colorful bazaars that sells Rajasthani handlooms and trinkets. Beautifully laid out gardens and parks, attractive monuments and marvelous heritage hotels, once the residence of Maharajas, are worth admiration, not to mention the ambling camels and cheerful people in multi colored costumes that make Jaipur a tourist's paradise. 
  • City of Shimla
    It is placed in the north-west region of the Himalayas. The hilly town is surrounded by green pastures and snow-capped peaks and visitors come here to this gorgeous 'hill station' to escape the oppressive heat in summer months. 16 km away from Shimla is the town of Kufri, which is considered the winter sport capital of India. It offers skiing, river rafting, and trekking.
  • Goa
    The smallest state in India but has amazing beaches. It is visited by hundreds of thousands of international and domestic tourists each year. Goa is also known for its temples and world heritage architecture, including the Basilica of Bom Jesus in Old Goa, which makes it one of the biggest Christian pilgrimage sites in Asia. The best time to visit Goa would be beetween October and end of February. Otherways you may arive in the midle of the seazon of monsoon rain, or uncomfortably hot sun. 

India is a very big country. Even a year of travel by foot would not be enough to be able to see it or understand its people and its culture completely. Its stories bring you the farthest back in history, and it has one of the most ancient living civilizations (it is about 10, 000 years old).
