India


Such is the cultural diversity of the world's largest democracy, it casts a spell on many cultural tourists, where cosmopolitan life in its largest conurbations contrasts with the semi-nomadic lifestyle of tribes in Odisha or Gujarat. So too, is the contrast visible between these traditional communities and the grandiose palaces of India's regional kingdoms or the architectural legacy of the British Raj. Centuries before the East India Company arrived, however, the Indian Subcontinent gave rise to the Indus Valley civilisation in the 3rd millenium BCE and subsequently the composition of the first scriptures related to Hinduism, before the mighty Mughal Empire also left their mark.
