From the snow-capped Himalayas in the north to the sun-drenched coastal villages of the south, India unfolds like an ancient tapestry. The perennial rivers running down from the mountains are the lifeblood on which India has flourished. Since the first civilisations developed on the banks of the Indus river almost 5,000 years ago. India has given birth to Buddhism and Hinduism. It has seen the rise and fall of the Sultans and Moguls. Even the sun finally set on the British Empire as it reclaimed independence in 1947. Consider India Holidays and immerse yourselves in the culture.
