"India is like nowhere else on earth - thrilling, frustrating and incredibly diverse. The full-colour Insight Guide India shows you how to get the most out of this amazing destination. Our inspirational Best of India section illustrates its unique attractions, from the bright lights of Mumbai to the brilliant colours of Rajasthan, the ruins of ancient cities and the cool heights of the Himalayas. With its in-depth history and culture section, this guide provides an essential introduction to India's ancient civilisations, colonial history and multi-layered contemporary society. Our lively essays on art and architecture, food and drink, performing arts, wildlife and Bollywood provide the perfect backdrop to any visit. The informative text, written by regional experts, is a pleasure to read and accompanied by stunning photography. The lavish Photo Features offer a unique insight into India's festivals, Hindu deities, its creaking railways, the ancient sites of Ajanta, Ellora and Hampi, cruising Kerala's backwaters, and - of course - the Taj Mahal. The Places section takes you on a journey through each of India's regions, from Delhi and the Himalayas in the north to Chennai and Kerala in the south, as well the coral-fringed Lakshadweep, Andaman and Nicobar Islands. All major sights are cross-referenced with full-colour maps, and the travel tips provide planning advice, language tips, an A-Z of essential travel information, and carefully selected hotel and restaurant listings." --Publisher's description.
