Places I Saw
“Stretching from the frozen barrier of the Himalayas to the tropical greenery of Kerala, and from the sacred Ganges to the sands of the Thar desert, the boundaries of India encompass incomparable variety. Walk the streets of any Indian city and you’ll rub shoulders with representatives of several of the world’s great faiths, a multitude of castes and outcastes, fair-skinned, turbanned Punjabis and dark-skinned Tamils. You’ll also encounter temple rituals that have been performed since the time of the Egyptian Pharaohs, onion-domed mosques erected centuries before the Taj Mahal was ever dreamed of, and quirky echoes of the British Raj on virtually every corner.” (http://www.roughguides.com/travel/asia/india/introduction-to-india.aspx)
Is this not the most beautiful description of India? I want to see it all! But India is so VAST! Did you know that India…
- is the 7th largest country
- has over 1 billion people
- 70% is practices Hinduism
I could easily spend years traveling the country to see it all, but I had 5 months. I started with a short bucket-list of places I was hoping to see. Here are the places I ended up visiting. Click on the links to read about my experience:
And there are so many other places that I now have on my list to see!! When do I get to go back??
