Art & Spirituality
It is impossible to sum up even the essence of the wealth of religions and spirituality that is embroiled into the very fabric of what defines India. It’s thousands of Hindu gods are worshipped by millions, daily rituals, weekly and annual events celebrate each of these in turn. From Islam to Christianity, Jainism and Sikhism, each religion is part of the melting pot that make up the baffling and diverse country that is India. Destinations depict certain rituals and beliefs, Rishikesh and Varanasi, Amritsar and beyond. And when it comes to art, well India’s art is as varied as its religions, with ancient carvings in extraordinary, ancient monolithic temples to the greats of the classical era to the contemporary street art now taking certain cities by storm.
