India is a colorful destination for travel holidays. The vast South Asian country with diverse terrain ranges from north Himalayan peaks to Indian ocean in South is rich in natural and cultural resources. The historical country is culturally more important than natural. In the north, Mughal Empire landmarks include Delhi’s Red Fort complex and massive Jama Masjid mosque, plus Agra’s iconic Taj Mahal mausoleum. Pilgrims bathe in the Ganges in Varanasi, and Rishikesh is a yoga centre and base for Himalayan trekking.
