Delhi is a city that bridges many different worlds. It has seen the rise and fall of many empires, that have left behind a plethora of monuments commemorating the glory of bygone ages. Then there is Old Delhi, with its labyrinth of narrow lanes, lined with crumbling Havelis and housing India’s largest mosque; in contrast, New Delhi created by the British Raj comprises spacious, tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings. Then in modern Delhi, you will discover a city of shopping malls, world-class restaurants, fascinating museums and art galleries and a vivacious performing-arts scene. Whether architects or chefs, history buffs or teenagers,
It is the duty of all Hindus to visit Varanasi at least once in their lifetime. As the sun rises over the River Ganges in the early morning, you may witness many of the faithful as they come to the ghats to pray and bathe. Colorful temples line the banks and a network of narrow alleys lead down to the water’s edge. All sense of modern life is lost as you absorb the ancient daily rituals, of river bathing, prayer and Aarti ceremonies. Varanasi can be overwhelming. It is teeming with people taking part in hundreds of daily ceremonies that celebrate every aspect of life from birth until death (there are ghats where the recently deceased are burnt in wooden pyres). However, this city will undoubtedly leave you with lasting memories of this most holy and quintessentially Indian city.
Situated where the Ganges emerges from the Himalaya, Haridwar (also called Hardwar), along with the better known Rishikesh is one of Uttarakhand’s holiest Hindu cities. Pilgrims flock here in their droves to bathe in the all cleansing River Ganges, to wash themselves of their misdemeanors and be blessed by the holy river. Despite its numbers of domestic visitors, the purpose of their visit gives Haridwar a calmer and more reverent feel than its better-known counterparts.
Rishikesh and its many ashrams – some clearly humbly ascetic, with others verge on the opulent – continue to draw devotees and followers from around the world. It is also considered the Yoga Capital of the World. The whole place is considered to be sacred, as it is believed that meditation here leads to the attainment of salvation. The beautiful Neelkanth Mahadev Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, is one of great importance to pilgrims, and is set in an area of astounding beauty. However, Rishikesh was also made famous by The Beatles who spent time here in the 1960’s, for its Ganga Arti, or prayer ceremony which takes place on the banks of the river every evening, as a yoga destination.
Amritsar is most famous for being the home of the Golden Temple, the most important holy pilgrimage site in the world for Sikhs. Made out of pure marble with an imposing dome of pure gold the temple is surrounded by a sacred pool and all these factors combine to ensure that it is an extraordinarily beautiful sight. Tens of thousands of people visit the temple every day which leads to the next extraordinary fact, each person who visits can enjoy a free meal.
Agra home of the beautiful Taj Mahal, the mausoleum built by emperor Shah Jahan for his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. On a moonlit night, the view of the ethereally white Taj by the silently flowing Yamuna is a sight that can inspire poetry. Yet as a city, it was originally, meticulously planned, built and nurtured by three successive Mughal emperors – Akbar, Jehangir and Shah Jahan, during the most glorious era of the Mughal Empire and has many other extraordinary monuments to explore once the Taj has been visited. Sikandra, Itmad ud Daula and the impressive Agra Fort an architectural masterpiece, built as a military fort, which was later converted into an opulent palace by Shah Jahan, who was later imprisoned there by his son Aurangzeb.
