India & Nepal Cultural Tour
Good morning to all our guests.
NTP Experience since 1986 believe that India and Nepal have common and great culture, architecture & tradition. India’s rich vibrant culture is our identity as a nation. Be it religion, art, traditions, humanistic discipline or intellectual achievements- they need to make us an upscale, colorful, and diverse nation. This has withstood the tests of time. India was home for invasions, be it Greeks, Arabs, Mughals all of them have only added to its already rich culture.
Today, India stands as a well-liked multicultural society because it has absorbed the better of every culture and moved on. People here follow different religions, customs, and traditions. People though turning modem today, hold on to the moral values, celebrate festivals consistent with customs and wear traditional clothes. We still learn lessons from the good Indian epics- Ramayana and Mahabharata. People still assemble in temples, gurudwaras, monasteries, mosques, and churches.
Elements of Indian Culture
NTP believe Religion is a major component of Indian culture. Firstly, Indian origin religions are Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism. The core values of these religions are karma and dharma. Furthermore, many foreign religions are also present in India.
These foreign religions include Abrahamic religions. The Abrahamic religions in India are Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Consequently, the presence of numerous diverse religions has given rise to tolerance and secularism in Indian culture.
Indian & Nepal Festivals
India celebrates numerous festivals throughout the year. These festivals are diverse due to different religious and cultural amalgamation in Indian society. Indians extremely value their festivals and celebrate them with joy and harmony with crackers and colors combining with happy faces and prayers.
Marriage is certainly a festive occasion in Indian culture. Arranged marriage is a traditional norm in the country. Most Indian weddings are planned by the parents. In traditional Indian weddings, dowry is given to the bridegroom from the bride's parents. Though nowadays many people have abandoned the dowry system. Indian weddings are certainly big fat with beautiful decorations, music, dance, traditional attires, and mouth-watering food.
Indians and Nepalese value the importance of family. In India, the joint family system is still flourishing. All the family members live together under one roof. The family contains the parents, children, children’s spouses, and offspring.
India is well known for its architectural masterpieces in the world. The foreign influences can be evident in Indian art and architecture due to various historical movements. From north to south, east to west, its culture is extremely alive. We must not just believe what we see in urban malls.
The art and architecture of the cave temples (Ajanta & Ellora), the carved Gopurams, the Gumbads, the intricate work of art created as a symbol of eternal love (the Taj Mahal), the Jharokas of the palaces, the forts, and their splendors still attract us and foreigners.
Our Plan of 13 days with India and Nepal is a combination of Indian Vasudeva Kutumba System where we start with the Indian Invasions and the Political capital of Delhi followed by the cultural colorful heritage heart of India Jaipur Rajasthan followed by Architectural Marvel Agra Taj mahal and Dev Bhoomi Mathura Vrindavan dancing on the tune Krishna & Gopi’s followed by the Manifested hub of Indian Culture and Ancestral values in Varanasi Sarnath associated with the Hindu, Muslim & Buddhist cultural ethics .
Thereafter, we fly to our friendly Himalayan Country of Nepal, we land at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) at Kathmandu or Kathmandu Bus Terminus (Kalanki) - Nepal, is a country of highly diverse and rich geography, culture and religions. Snuggled in a bubble surrounded by China and India, is the ancient South Asian country of Nepal. The mountainous north contains eight of the world’s ten highest Himalayan Mountains, including the highest, Mount Everest. Nepal has numerous standings and ideologies, languages, and shading. Different languages had different dilations and festivals. Brahmin, Chhetri, Newar, Rai, Tamang, Limbu, etc. They celebrate according to other calendars, for example, Dashain, Tihar, Teej, Lhosar, talk, et cetera. In Nepal, the primary dialect is Nepali.
Kathmandu offers you a classical type of environment, a mix of both medieval and modern times. Cultural Heritage is the principal identity of the ‘City of Temples’. Besides, you will gain a whole lot of information on the people’s lifestyle now and then. We will also visit Bhaktapur Nagarkot the ancient township of Nepal.
Now let us talk about Pokhara, 200 kilometers away from Kathmandu. Pokhara is one of the most beautiful touristic places of Nepal. The city will warmly welcome you with its natural beauty. The presence of many beautiful lakes will offer you a sense of calmness and boating on them is an absolute privilege. The Pokhara valley is surrounded by the magnificent Himalayas and green hills, one more reason to be there. At the same time the place is geologically blessed, too, to have different caves and waterfalls. Davis fall is one of the many to beautify your adventure. For your recreation they also provide Paragliding, Zip Flying, Cycling and Bungee Jumping there in Pokhara.
Indian and Nepal culture is always a source of inspiration for all the travellers. The conception of Indian identity poses certain difficulties but despite this, a typical Indian culture does exist. Above all, these forces are a strong Constitution, universal adult franchise, secular policy, flexible federal structure, etc.
Indian & Nepal culture is characterized by a strict social hierarchy. Probably, many Indians & Nepalese believe that gods and spirits have a task in determining their life. Earlier traditional Hindus were divided into four varnas. Now, this difference is declining.
To sum it up, the culture of India & Nepal is one of the oldest cultures within the World. So, my friends, Indians have demonstrated strong unity regardless of the range among them. Unity in Diversity is the mantra of Indian culture.
