The geography, climate, and culture of Northern India is very different from the South. North India bore the brunt of countless invasions over thousands of years, and also is where many of these invaders chose to settle and make their home. North India’s cities, architecture, culture, and people reflect the absorption of all these influences.
It is home to the great Himalayas and other magnificent mountain ranges, the fabled deserts of Rajasthan, and includes the vast fertile plains of Central and Eastern India. The Northern parts of the country have seen the most change over the eons, and even today, tend to absorb and accept changes in beliefs and ideas a little easier than most of South India.
New Delhi is the capital of India and the home of the largest bureaucracy in the democratic world. It is also the nation’s primary center for fine arts and other cultural endeavors. Architecturally and socially, the city is a diverse mosaic, woven with the tapestries of the cultures that have ruled and/or inhabited Northern India over the last eight centuries. There is amazing art and architecture all over Delhi; from the awe inspiring ancient Mosques, forts, & other monuments of the Mughal Empire, to the magnificence of countless other buildings and structures. These can range from structures many thousands of years old, to the numerous impressive bureaucratic buildings constructed during the "British Raj". Just a few examples are the three UNESCO World Heritage sites - the massive Red Fort, the towering Qutab Minar, and beautiful Humayun’s Tomb. Add to that classic British era structures such as India Gate and Rashtrapathi Bhawan; modern edifices like the magnificent Bahai Temple; as well as numerous gorgeous gardens (such as Lodi Gardens) designed and laid out many centuries ago. There are too many things to do in Delhi in a couple of days, so Easy Tours has selected the very best of these for your Delhi Tour.
Located on the banks of the Hindu holy river Ganga, Varanasi is the most visited pilgrimage destinations in North India, a land blessed with many. As the worlds oldest continuously inhabited city (over 5000 years), its spirituality will touch most hearts when you first walk on the Ghats. Near here, at Sarnath, about twenty five hundred years ago, the Lord Buddha preached his message of Enlightenment for the very first time. Two thousand years ago, Varanasi was a well-planned city, famous for its universities and places of worship. It has survived onslaughts by India's Mughal Emperors, who destroyed some of the ancient Hindu temples and learning centers. The famous Ghats, Hindu Temples, Muslim Mosques, and various museums are almost all worth a visit, and your North India tour with Easy Tours will allow you to experience all of this.
Rajput culture considers pink to be the color of hospitality; hence the pink walls of the Old City in Jaipur. Constructed in the early 18th century, Rajasthan's capital is a well-planned city with an organized grid of wide streets, unlike much of North India. Maharaja Jai Singh II, after whom it is named, was a great astronomer who also had Jaipur's Jantar Mantar, (one of Jaipur’s three UNESCO World Heritage Sites) designed and constructed. The king and his architect built Jaipur using ancient Hindu principles of civic planning and design, and created a city full of magical color and beauty. A Jaipur tour with us can include delights such as Elephant and Camel rides, unique experiences such as a visit to the Monkey Temple, and a whole lot more.
If you’d like to experience a land taken straight out of a fairytale and the Himalayas interest you, you should consider visiting Ladakh. This is the last remaining Tibetan Buddhism Kingdom on our planet, and the awe inspiring beauty of this high altitude region will amaze you. This surreal land has a charm not found anywhere else on the planet except for Tibet from almost half a century ago, tragically changed since then. A visit to the Leh, Ladakh region can easily be added to your North India tour.
