Spiritual landmark

India is a land of diverse cultures and also home to innumerable spiritual locations.

The Buddhist Gompas in the North exemplify the rich tradition that is very much prevalent in the Northern-most parts of the country. They often offer a glimpse into the simplistic life led by them and share the importance of values in Indian culture with the world. India is home to many Buddhist sites-

  • Sarnath
  • Bodhgaya
  • Sankhya
  • Shravasti
  • Vaishali
  • Nalanda
  • Sanchi
  • Kushinagar
  • Ajanta Caves
  • Rajgir
  • Kapilavastu

Before travelling to these places make sure you search for it about transportation and the distance of the location. 

Budget-friendly

Before travelling what we all need to do is set time and budget. And in India, you will get almost the same budget for things around the year except for a few of the places. If you search before travelling to one place you are intended to you may get a hotel room or living place for only 5 USD. and you can easily have a meal in 1 USD in a local restaurant. 

Sounds interesting? Who’s stopping you now?

The people

India is one of the biggest countries in the world. And it’s highly populated too. But one thing is common in all which is hospitality. They are highly cooperative and friendly. They make sure to treat their guests in the best way possible. You may go back to India again to meet the person who helped you throughout the trip. 

India doesn’t just make money by the tourism they are creating a connection with the entire world with their hospitality and their diversified cultures.
