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 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 is the celebration of lights – and an invocation to Goddess Lakshmi to shower wealth and prosperity on all.
Holi is the festival of colours. Anywhere you go across India, you can see a most amazing riot of colours, and an absolutely beautiful day to be in India. The next Holi celebration is scheduled for 2nd March 2018.
