Festivals of India

India is a land of festivals – these are bright, colourful and joyous celebrations that can go on for Days. If you are planning to visit India, it will be a great idea to combine your trip with one of the big festivals of India. Currently we are providing customized holiday packages for Durga Puja, Deepawali and Holi.

Durga Puja:

Durga Puja is the celebration of the annual homecoming of Maa Durga to her parents’ house. While the festival is celebrated by all Hindus, it is the major festival in the state of West Bengal.

The festival is spread across five days, with over 1000 Durga Puja pandals set up in the city of Kolkata alone. On the fifth and final day, the idols are taken through the city in a huge procession culminating with the immersion in the Hooghly.

Deepawali:
