Your guide to India holidays
From Mumbai to New Delhi, India is a world waiting to be discovered by travellers. Ancient venues dot the country and tourists from all over descend on India to experience the once in a lifetime sites. The Taj Mahal in Agra is the ideal starting point to an Indian sightseeing holiday. The mausoleum was built in the 16th century in the memory of emperor Shah Jahan's wife. Experience the architecture as you walk the grounds of the unforgettable Taj Mahal.
Varanasi is one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. It is also a sacred city to Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. The city is the scene of pilgrimages and it can be overwhelming at times. However, no other city gives visitors a window into India like Varanasi.
Found in 1819 by British hunters, the Ajanta Caves actually date back to the 2nd century BC. Perfectly preserved, the caves display murals of battles, ships and city streets. If you want something above ground, Harmandir Sahib, the Golden Temple, is a tourist must-see. The Sikh temple is the most important religious site to followers. The temple's top floors are covered in gold, giving off a stunning, shimmering appearance.
India has a number of great beaches, and it isn't hard to find a good one. There are 7,500 kilometres of coastline in India, so it isn't too difficult to run into sand and surf. Chakratirth Beach is just outside the city walls of Gujarat. The beach receives few swimmers or sun worshippers during the day. So, you may have the beach all to yourself. Mumbai's Chowpatty Beach is a local favourite. Patrons don't swim at Chowpatty as the waters are not the cleanest. However, they do enjoy the food stalls and chance to stroll across its sands. Goa is considered party central by many globetrotters. Anjuna Beach can accommodate both young in age and the young at heart. Head to the northern half of the beach where backpackers congregate. The southern half should have you out of distance of loud music and more in tune with peace and quiet if that is what you are looking for.
