One of The World's Oldest Civilizations with a cultural heritage that dates back several centuries, and shaped over the years by a succession of political powers, religions and cultures, India today is a fascinating mix of the old and the new, of tradition and modernity. Temples, mosques and churches jostling side by side, modern cities juxtaposed with dusty villages, slums hovering at the fingers of high-rises-these are but some of the images that define the kaleidoscope that is India. Its splendid architecture, myriad arts and crafts, diverse cuisines, colourful fairs and festivals contribute to India's reputation as a richly rewarding destination for the traveller. The people of India are also famous for their hospitality and friendliness. Although mostly traditional in their way of life, Indians are an outward-looking people, ever-ready to absorb and assimilate values and influences that appeal to them. A land of amazing contrasts, an exotic and mysterious land, a land that never ceases to amaze - all of these statements equally sum up India.
