Situated in South Asia, India is the seventh largest country in the world. It is also the second most populated country in the world. It stretches from the mighty Himalayas to the tropical green backwaters of Kerala, comprising a wide range of landscapes, rivers, forests and architecture. India is a land of diverse cultures, faith, beliefs and festivals. People living in different parts of India wear different clothes, speak different languages, celebrate different festivals and follow different rituals and yet they are one entity. The famous American author, Mark Twain once remarked, "India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only."

India’s history is full of splendour and grandeur. India flourished under great dynasties such as the Mughals, Mauryas, Guptas, Cholas, Pallavas, etc. These empires contributed greatly to the infrastructure, culture, economy and administration of the country. Migration and invasion of foreign tribes affected the culture and religion of this country. The arrival of the Mongols under the regime of Genghis Khan, the Greeks under the rule of Alexander the Great, and most significantly the British had a strong impact on the country. This land of tigers and snake charmers, lakes and beaches, mountains and sacred rivers is rightly known as a paradise for travelers as it offers a cultural experience so unparalleled that it can sweep the visitors off their feet.
