India is one of the top destinations in the world. You have probably heard a lot of people say that India is on their bucket list. The reasons differ. Some go there for the sole purpose of seeing the Taj Mahal, while others want to go to India for spiritual reasons. No matter the reason, India is definitely a country that is worth visiting at least once in your life, and not just because of the Taj Mahal. Yes, the Taj Mahal is the largest love token ever built, but this country is much more than that. For one thing, India is a very spiritual country. There are a lot of temples everywhere, and they are not all built for the same deity. As you may very well know, Indians are polytheists, which means that they have more than one deity. If you visit several temples, you will notice the differences in style. That should be the first sign that the temple you are visiting is erected for another deity than the previous one you saw. Speaking of spirituality, temples are not the only sign. Many festivals and rituals take place every year in India. Whether you believe in many gods, one god, or no gods at all, you can still appreciate the beauty of Indian religious rituals. The processions are usually very colorful, and the people create an ominous but emotional atmosphere. It is a wonderful thing to witness. If you are in India, do not forget about the ashrams. They are these secluded temples or monasteries in the mountains. They are usually isolated because you cannot have a noisy ashram. The whole point of an ashram is relaxation, serenity, meditation, yoga, and other such things. A lot of people who go to India visit these temples. Some want some peace and quiet, while others just want to find themselves, whatever that may mean for each person. The point is that the monks there are very friendly, they generally have tasty food, and you can experience something new. You can at least learn how to do some yoga or meditate if you do not know already. As far as the people in India are concerned, you may be pleasantly surprised. They are very hospitable and sociable. You can even hire a local to give you a tour of the city you are in. In some cases, locals are better than tour guides because they know every single little street and can let you in on some secrets of the location. Plus, you get to give some money to a person that probably needs it more. At the same time, locals are happy to welcome you into their home and seat you at their table. What you should know is the difference between a tour guide and a local. It is true that a local may have more places to show you, but the chances of him or her speaking English are lower, and such people may not know much about the history. You must have heard some bad things about India as well. Some of them are true, while others not. On any trip, hygiene is one of the most important things to keep in mind. It is true that many places in India are not sanitary, and under no circumstances should you drink the tap water. Always buy bottled water. You should also be careful what restaurants you eat from. The best thing you can do is do some research before your trip. You can find good restaurants that do not have health issues, while others may cause you some stomach or digestion problems. Another hygiene practice to be aware of is that you will see a lot of Indian people bathing in the Ganges River. It is not recommended that you do the same. As you can imagine, people who live there have developed their own immunity, something that you do not have. And the Ganges is not the cleanest river you will ever come across. You may see floating carcasses of dead cows, and in some rare cases, even people. Not to mention that the river is polluted with waste. It is a common practice for Indians, but it is not the best idea for you to bathe there. You can catch a lot of diseases, and you do not want something like that to ruin your trip. If the temples and the other attractions are not your thing, you should know that India has some luxury resorts as well. You can spend a 7-day period on a white sandy beach without a care in the world. The food in luxury resorts is usually good, and you do not have to worry about sanitary issues. Plus, you do not have to deal with unpleasant things like overcrowding, which can be a major issue in many places in India. Other than that, you should be able to have a lot of fun. India has its own pros and cons, just like any other country in the world, but the bottom line is that it is a country worth visiting. You can pick which parts to visit since there are no restrictions, and the best part is that you have a lot of places to choose from. It is impossible not to find something that you may like in India.
