Great things to see in India


India is the most breath-taking of cultural experiences. Everywhere you go and wherever you look, there are new unthinkable things to see and learn about. The country is truly a unique and fascinating place, with a rich history and magnificent culture waiting for you to experience.

You’ll get to marvel at the beautiful architecture and wondrous ancient temples, experience fascinating festivals and set your sights on stunning natural scenery. India is a must-see country for travelers. Here are some of the top things we think there are to see in India.

See Ranakpur Jain Temple

Situated in a remote North Easterly village, the Ranakpur Jain Temple dates back to the 15th century. The temple is remarkably captivating, supported by over 1’400 intricately detailed pillars in which no two one is the same. It’s relatively unvisited by masses of tourists, so it’s a great hidden spot of ancient history to venture around.

Relax on Palolem Beach

If you like to break up your trip with a relaxing beach day, then Palolem Beach in the state of Goa is the place for you to be. It’s got a clean sandy beach, tropical palm trees, calm waves, nightlife, excursions, and water activities. There’s also an array of affordable beach huts to hire too.

See the Indian Himalayas

The Indian Himalayas offer incredible sights of beautiful scenery, with numerous tracks and paths allowing you to trek the best view spots. The Western ranges from Kashmir to Nanda also feature quaint communities for you to stop off and explore too. Be careful of the snow leopards!

Ride the ancient railways

Indian railway systems are certainly an experience. Taking to the tracks is a must-do thing to do, whatever part of the country you are in. You can hop on board the desert crossing from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer, or ride through the mountainous terrains from Kolkata to Darjeeling. You could even experience one of the longest train routes in India on the Grand Trunk Express from New Delhi to Chennai.

Visit Akshardham

Located near the Yamuna River, this temple is another one to see. It towers above the landscape with vast domed ceilings, impressive architecture, and exquisite carvings. Akshardham complex is also a great place go before or after sunset when it’s beautifully lit up.

Explore the medieval city of Orcha

This a unique little medieval town dating back to the early 16th century with an abundance of temples, forts and palaces for you to explore. Its derelict streets and ancient ruins make it a magical place to visit. One tip – visit early before any tourist buses and coaches arrive to have it all to yourself and see it in its full glory.

Celebrate the festivals

India certainly has no shortage of festivals. From kite flying to camels, there’s usually some sort of festival to be joined depending on where or when you visit. Most of them are wonderful sights to see – like the lighting up of a million clay lamps at India’s biggest festival Diwali, or the vibrant color powder throwing of Holi which is crazy fun.

India truly does have an endless array of places to visit. Whatever it is you like to experience on vacation, India’s lavish cultural heritage is something everyone should experience. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed.

India Fashion Week: A New Sponsor — and a New Strategy

NEW DELHI — India Fashion Week here for the first time went direct to consumer, indicating the country’s changing fashion market.
The fashion week, the first four days of which were dedicated to retail buyers, also came with a new sponsor and a new name — the Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week, or LMIFW.
“The event kept the tradition of buyer sale for the first four days and added a new dimension for public sale on the penultimate two days at the same venue,” Sunil Sethi, president of the Fashion Design Council of India, or FDCI, told WWD. FDCI is the organizer of the event, which closed Oct. 15. “In its 19 years of existence, the FDCI has never thought of doing a B2C show. We have always been about business-to-business, and we are just adding on a new dimension,” he added.
Describing the changing retail market, and a year in which many designers have slowed the opening of their own stores, he said the last two days included past seasons’ designs and old inventory. “Many of the designers have been talking about the pain in retail, about downsizing a bit and reengineering their operations. In the factories, people are reassessing what to do this
