India is among those few countries which will leave a lasting impression on your heart once you set your foot on its land. Blessed with diverse culture, numerable cuisines, lush beauty, intricate architecture, lively colors and pleasant sights; it will surely be worthy of your time and money. If you are still in two minds about whether or not to travel to India, here are the top reasons why you should:
“Atithi Devo Bhava” is not just preached, but also practised here. Be it people in rural areas inviting you over a dinner and giving you directions politely to help you reach somewhere or people in urban areas gladly making space for you to travel comfortably in public transport, you will be touched by their warmth.
2.) Value Destination
Here’s when your expectations will meet reality. If you expect India bombarded with dirty and unhygienic hotels, here’s when you will be wrong. The best part about travelling to India is that you don’t have to break your bank while exploring it. You can opt for high-end hotels as well as low budget hotels which are clean and welcoming. Ensure that you have a comfortable bus journey when travelling from one city to another.
3.) Enticing Food
If food is among the top reasons why you want to travel to India, you will be in for a big treat. Be it pakora or idli, biryani or samosa, curry or masala dosa, barfi or gajar ka halwa, butter chicken or chaat papri, coriander chutney or dal makhani, dhoka or thepale, gulab jamun or jalebi, lassi or pulao; you will be delighting your taste buds. If you felt shocked by the cultural diversity, diversity in cuisines will leave you speechless. And of course, for the good!
4.) Taj Mahal
It is impossible that you visit India and do not visit one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Taj Mahal! Built by the emperor Shah Jahan as a cenotaph to his favourite wife i.e. Mumtaz Mahal; you will be mesmerized by its beauty. The white marble mausoleum is located on the Southern bank of Yamuna river in Agra city. It is the epitome of Mughal art and the monument is symbolic of love and romance. Taj Mahal should be on top of your “to travel” list when coming to India.
5.) Comfort zone
It is an undeniable truth that India will leave you changed, for better or for worse. It is one place packed with varied backgrounds which means you won’t be able to ignore the culture shock here. And it definitely won’t even be easy. But that is also which will widen your perspective, introduce you to new things and make you move out of your comfort zone. Even if you will be staying in luxury hotels and travelling in personal transport guided by experts, you will still have to deal with a host of things which will increase your patience level.
It is no hidden fact that people from afar travel to India to find lost peace and calm their souls. Be it learning yoga or admitting them in a meditation haven, they come here to quench their thirst for spirituality. The world is becoming materialistic and selfish increasingly and heading to India to search for inner peace won’t prove to be disappointing.
