History & Heritage


Many scholars consider Indian civilization to be the oldest in the world. With integration of cultures based on intermingling of people from various ethnicity over thousands of years, India's history is not just about war and conquest, but also about groups of people harmoniously living together to form cultures and practices that are truly unique to this part of the world.


You will be surprised to see the diversity and you will truly understand the meaning of the term 'Beautiful People of India' on your vacation in India.
