India has so many sights and wonders that cannot be seen or enjoyed
anywhere else in the world. You can visit everything from beautiful
monuments built hundreds of years ago in the memory of a loved one, to
the exact birth place of a prophet's teachings and ideals.
To enjoy your experience to the fullest and take in as much culture as
possible, you may consider visiting the country during the celebration
of Diwali. This is an amazing festival that lasts from mid-October to
mid-November. It is a national holiday in India. Keep in mind that it
will be more crowded, but there will certainly be a lot of celebrating
and interesting sights. If you prefer a less crowded vacation, visit at
another time of year.
