I guess you heard it all before. India is a great country that can provide an amazing experience, both spiritually and culturally. It is not news that a lot of people choose this destination for all the cultural riches India has to offer. The Beatles went there to find their spiritual side and came back with a few hit songs, so why couldn’t you, right? Apart from that, there are several other reasons you should go there, and here is why.
You can absorb the culture
Few countries in the world have as much culture as India. There are various old temples and forts that can simply take your breath away with their beauty. UNESCO has several World Heritage Sites in India. People go there every year and come back enriched. At least that is what they say. The Rajasthan region, in particular, is renowned for its culture. Some even go as far as saying that there is more cultural history in Rajasthan than in the other parts of India combined. There is no way of me telling you the true value of the things you can find there. I guess you have to go there and see for yourself.
The Taj Mahal
That right there is the entire reason some people even go to India. The biggest token of love in the world is the main attraction, as well as being one of the eight wonders of the world. I am not saying that other places cannot be as enjoyable as Taj Mahal, but there is no traveler in this world who doesn’t want to go there. That is why this mausoleum gets from 2 to 4 millions of visitors each year. It’s true that the surrounding areas are not very appealing, but once you are there, you’ll forget everything about it.
You cannot go on a trip to find your spirituality without visiting at least one ashram. The monks there are very friendly, and it is a place where you can get a lot of peace and quiet. You can learn or practice yoga in some breathtaking settings. If you are up for it, you can even go up into the mountains. The ashrams there are simply to die for.
Ease of entry
Going to India requires a visa like many countries do. However, there is an easy way to get one. If you don’t want to spend a lot of time standing in line at the Indian consulate, you can apply for one online. India is among the countries that release an e-visa. That means you can go online, fill in an application, and you can get the visa you need in as little as 18 hours. Keep in mind, though, that this applies only as long as you travel by plane. To top it all of, you can also get passport photos online. All you need is to stand in front of your webcam. The internet simplifies all the documentation you need, which will make your preparations so much easier.
The reasons I mentioned above don’t even begin to cover what India has to offer. You will be living an amazing experience. One that you’ll never be able to forget. So pack your bags, and go get yourself the memories you deserve. Namaste!
