India is separated from the rest of Asia by the world's highest and youngest mountain chain, the Himalayas. Every type of landscape that one can think of can be seen in India. Mountain ranges and wildlife sanctuaries in abundance, offer ample opportunities for eco-tourism and trekking.

The rich history of India dates back to five thousand years when its first major civilization flourished around the Indus Valley. The society that developed here followed a sophisticated lifestyle and possessed a great knowledge of town planning. The Indus Valley civilization survived for approximately 1000 years before declining. After the decline of the Indus valley, the Aryans entered India and established their rule. Around the 4th century BC, the Mauryan empire conquered almost all parts of the country. They were followed by the Guptas, the Cholas and the Pandyas. Then came the Mughals who took over control. Later, in the early 1600s, the British arrived and soon made India one of their colonies. After a great struggle, India finally got independent in 1947. Since then, India has undergone immense development in every sphere. India has a strong system of government that makes it the largest democracy in the world.

India is no less than a paradise for nature and wildlife lovers. The country is home to a staggering variety flora and fauna. The sight of preening peacocks, decorated camels, tigers in wild and majestic elephants is in itself an unmatched experience. Watching the animals and birds in their natural habitats is truly wonderful. Above 70 national parks and approximately 400 wildlife sanctuaries and bird sanctuaries form the rich wildlife heritage of India. Deserts and beaches in India fascinate one and all.

A variety of exotic beaches like no where in the world exist in India. Placid backwaters, bays, marine estuaries with fish, powdery golden sand shores are all present in India.

Immense climatic diversity is found in India. Deserts such as the Great Indian Thar Desert, are at present among the major tourist destinations. Characterized by barren landscape, scanty rainfall, slopy sand dunes and scrub vegetation, the deserts charm visitors with their sheer magic.

India displays diversity in all fronts and its people reflect the rich past, traditions and values that are truly Indian. Different languages, manners, and eating habits are followed by people in different regions and locations. Indians are warm at heart and possess a high spirit of tolerance.

Family ties are given utmost importance in India. Earlier the practice of several members of a family living under the same roof was followed. These members shared common household and business. Soon this concept of living as a joint family became a social norm.

The colourful mosaic of Indian festivals and fairs - as diverse as the land, is an eternal expression of the spirit of celebration. Observed with enthusiasm and gaiety, festivals are like gems ornamenting the crown of Indian culture. The Kumbh Mela, Pushkar fair, Goa carnival and Ladakh Festival are prominent fairs and festivals. Some other major festivals celebrated with great enthusiasm include Diwali, Holi, Christmas, Eid-Ul-Fitr, Pongal, Baisakhi and the national holidays of Independence Day and Republic Day.

India is far famed for its architectural legacy second to none. It has several sights that never fail to fascinate the onlookers. Monuments such as Taj Mahal, Qutub Minar, Ajanta Caves, Mysore Palace, Umaid Bhawan Palace are a living testimony to the rich architecture of India.
