Best things to do and see in India

What popular events take place in India?

If you’ve managed to get great India flight deals, rest assured you’ll have a plethora of interesting events to see and take part in once you’re there. India is full of colourful exciting events for both locals and visitors. One of the most well-known is Holi. It’s an annual Hindu festival that takes place every year in March. Holi is known as the festival of colours because across the country people take part in fights involving paint and colours. Legend has it that the demon Holika was beaten by the heroic Prahlada. To celebrate this, on the night of the full moon in March, a statue of Holika is burned and people celebrate the next day with colours, dancing, parades and singing. Diwali is possibly India’s most anticipated annual festival. Known as the celebration of lights, it’s a Hindu holiday celebrating the triumph of light over darkness. You’ll see plenty of fireworks, string lanterns and clay lights. Diwali is usually five days of celebrations in October or November. Families come together, eat and give gifts. The festival is celebrated all over India, but key places to see Diwali are in Delhi, Kolkata and Jaipur.

Is India known for specific cuisine/food?

For those of you with flights to India, one of the greatest joys will be discovering India’s rich food heritage. There’s something for absolutely everyone, young or old, vegan or meat eaters. The most defining feature of food in India is its impressive use of spices, and mixes often have at least five but often 10 or more different spices in one dish. Each region has its own cuisine as well, influenced by geography, culture and religion. In the North of India, you tend to find rich curries and thick sauces, often eaten with yogurts and baked breads. Dishes made in clay ovens feature heavily, such as chana masala or chicken tandoori. In the South, dishes are frequently made with coconut milk, and feature flavours like lemongrass, local fruits and curry leaves. Typically, they’re eaten with rice or lentils, or as stews. In Kerala, typical street food includes banana fritters or sweet dumplings. In Gujarat, you’ll find lots of vegetarian dishes and seafood. It’s a coastal city, but also has a large following in Jainism, a religion that promotes non-violence. Mumbai is best known for its street food – you’ll find everything from milky teas, to bright orange jalebi, to bhel puri, a puffed rice snack.

What can you see and do in India?

For anyone visiting India, again you’ll find a vast range of things to see and do. The Taj Mahal in Agra is probably the first place that comes to many people’s minds when they think of India. Built over 15 years and finished in 1648, the Taj Mahal is a mausoleum built by Emperor Shah Jahan for his favourite wife Mumtaz Mahal. It’s made of white marble with inlays of diamonds, lapis, jade and pearl, amongst other stones. It’s best seen at dawn or dusk. The holy Hindu city of Varanasi is another major attraction. It dates back to the 8th century and is one of the oldest lived in cities in the world, on the banks of the Ganges river. The city has lots of temples to visit, the most famous being the Kashi Vishwanath Temple. The Ganges itself is considered a holy place, and has numerous ghats, or stairways leading down to the river to allow people to bathe before praying. The Golden Temple of Amritsar is the holiest site for Sikhs, but it also attracts Hindus and people of other religions. It’s renowned for its beautiful gold decoration and floral and animal motifs. The great golden dome represents purity to Sikhs. It serves around 50,000 free meals a day to visitors.

What passport or visa requirements are there when visiting India?

If you’re flying to India, you’ll need to ensure you have a fully valid passport (it’s best to have at least 180 days valid on it from the date of entry), and a visa allowing you to visit. India offers different visas for different reasons. These include tourist visas, transit visas, medical visas and residence permits.
