Arm Chair Travel Series: Top 5 Reasons We Love India

By: Inter Valley Health Plan





For our latest installment of the Arm Chair Travel series, we are taking you to the remote lands of India, a South-Asian country with a rich history spanning back five millennia. With a population of over 1 billion, the republic of India is the 2nd most populated country in the world, second only to China. With a widespread geography, India’s terrain is vast, stretching from the Himalayan peaks to the Indian Ocean.

India as we know it today is well known for its rich and diverse culture. While there are countless reasons to love this country, here are our top five:

•The people. India is the home of so many notable figures that have helped to shape humanity and advance our society as a whole. Among them include Mahatma Gandhi who led the Indian independence movement during the British-ruled era. While not from India, Mother Theresa founded her order in India and spent a large portion of her time there caring for the poor and the hungry.

•The cities. India is a large country, and so its many famous cities feel like their own realms entirely. Mumbai, for instance, is the most populated city in India. New Delhi, Jaipur, Bengaluru and Calcutta are all popular and populous cities in this country, each bringing their own energy, culture, food varietals and customs.

•The landmarks. The historical and distinctive landmarks that are a must-see include everything from the Taj Mahal and the Amber Fort, to the India Gate and the Mahabodhi Temple. And those are just some of India’s bucket-list-worthy landmarks you shouldn’t miss.

•The spirituality. India’s population is more than 80% Hindu, with Muslims and Buddhists encompassing the majority. So much of the traditions and culture of India are rooted in their religious backgrounds, and so we owe much of our favorite parts of the Indian culture to its strong religious roots and heritage.

•The culture. Indian music, dance, religion, festivals, architecture and food are all pieces of the rich Indian culture we love to experience and enjoy.
