BTT SIGNATURE COLLECTION
Signature Spirituality and Art
Spirituality is synonymous with India, whether via religion or yoga and meditation practices to ancient ceremonies, it seems it is difficult to get through any day without witnessing some form of India’s spirituality. This trip takes you on a journey to the most important Sikh Temple in India, The Golden Temple in Amritsar, to the home of the Dalai Lama, India’s first heritage village, and the former British Hill Station of Shimla before ending up in Rishikesh, a destination that many consider to be India’s true spiritual home and it’s centre of Yoga.
