Cultural Tourism Tourism In India

The image of India as a mystical place rich in culture, history and a colorful blend of religious strains lures the greatest numbers of travelers. Although predominantly Hindu with a large Muslim minority, India's patchwork of peoples includes dozens of ethnic groups, languages and religious sects. Taking the classic route through India's Golden Triangle (Delhi's red fort, Agra's Taj Mahal and Jaipur's pink palaces), visiting UNESCO World Heritage sites such as Fatehpur Sikri and Hampi, or joining celebrant throngs for festivals such as the Pushkar camel fair, Taj Mahotsav or Suraj Kun mela can provide stunning glimpses into this vast cultural mosaic
