The beauty and diversity of India

India is a diverse land of enormous size and diversity, not only geographically but also culturally and with a wealth of traditions. The differences in the North and South of India are quite large, which means when those from the North visit the South (or vice versa) they are often surprised at the differences. An escorted tour of India give a pleasurable break from routine, transporting you to some of the country’s most memorable and beautiful locations.

Let us take a look at two of the most popular places in India.

Taj Mahal.

The Taj Mahal is in Agra and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in India. Tourist flock to landlocked Agra which is enclosed deep in the valleys of Northern India. The tranquil Taj Mahal was built by Shah Jahan and is a more than just a spectacular display of architecture but also an everlasting symbol of pure love.

Standing and gazing at this landmark under a full moon at midnight is guaranteed to produce emotions which are both unexpected and intense. Due to the popularity of the Taj Mahal there have been restrictions imposed on the number of visitors during the night, it is recommended that you make good use of the professional support of India escorted tours to make such a visit.

Rajasthan.

Rajasthan is a miniature version of India in itself. With copious amounts of historical attractions alongside a vast array of still active traditions and rituals. Some of the top destinations in Rajasthan include the capital Jaipur with its Amer Fort, Udaipur (also known as the city of lakes) with the City Palace and Jodhpur with its Mehrangarh Fort.

Jodhpur is also growing in popularity as a wedding destination. There is an abundance of culture and history to be found in Rajasthan which cannot be compared to any other location in India.
