India is one of the largest countries (7th in the world). Also the second most-populous country, it is composed of a multitude of diverse communities and cultures. It is rich in history as it is home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilization and vast empires that gave rise to intricate and impressive art and architecture whose perfect example is the Taj Mahal in Agra. Religions like Hinduism, Jainism and Sikhism were started here in this country. And Islam, Buddhism and Christianity are also the major religions.
India is incredible as its richness has something for every traveler. If you want to do trekking, the Himalayas run through its northern side. Ladakh is a very good place for trekkers. If you want to experience cultures, then you head to the south to places like Kerala or to the north-eastern parts like Darjeeling or to the deserts of Rajasthan where not only culture but you get to see the magnificent palaces and forts built by the Maharajas. You can enjoy its beaches as more than half of its border touches seas. And let’s not forget Delhi and Agra, home to some of iconic cultural hubs and architectural marvels like the Taj Mahal, which was described as “a teardrop in the face of eternity” by the Nobel poet Rabindranath Tagore.
