3. Monumental monuments

If you’re visiting India and don’t get a chance to hold the Taj Mahal by its tip while getting clicked, consider your trip half-made.

4. Spicy food

The place of chicken tikka and chicken tandoori, India also happens to serve great vegetarian food. Those of us who flock to the country to attain spiritual merit, chicken tikka is off the menu. As several disciplines of Yoga and Ayurveda don’t encourage eating anything that’s killed to serve the appetite of others. But India is also a great place to try spicy vegetarian food that will make you question your non-vegetarian food habits. A great place to change eating habits, India is no less than a food institution.

5. The Land of Tea

India is the nectar of oriental tea herbs. Nestled in northeastern hills, large tea estates produce exotic herbs such as Earl Grey, Classic Assam Tea, and much more to help you taste the flavor of India. The iconic Masala Chai is a must that will never fail you if you plan to visit India. Tea has made India a popular place for several global tea connoisseurs who simply like to explore the territory of exotic beverages.

The land of Bengal tiger and spellbinding peacocks, India serves as a green home to several endangered species of animals. While many tigers roam the Western Ghats, several alligators hide in mangroves of Bengal. Find yourself in the company of many monkeys who like to visit the temples around the city. Feed them and they’ll leave you alone.

7. The Land of Yoga

Needless to say, the very best of yoga teacher training in India comes from India.

The world is waking up to the power of yoga and many are experiencing great results all over the world. India is undoubtedly the place to be if you want to make yoga a lifelong spiritual practice.

8. Meditation

Long before scientists all over the world claimed its benefits, several sages across India were already teaching the art of meditation to many. India has been a great source of meditation practice that also combines yoga. Drawing inspiration from ancient religious texts of Hindu & Buddhist origin, great spiritual masters of India shared their wisdom on how to train the mind with love and compassion. Come to India if you want to take a pilgrimage to your own mind which is the farthest place to reach for so many of us.

9. Kaleidoscope of Culture

India is home to several religions, but mainly Hinduism. It allows for multi-lingual diversities and people with a different cast, color, and creed live together, discovering an inclusive way of living every day. With the immense potential for hospitality, India continues to be the place that has to offer a lot of love and service to many who come from different parts of the world to find a place of their own.
