Heritage Sites in India


The roots of Indian civilization stretch back in time to pre-recorded history. Take a look into the pages of history and it will tell you that time and again, foreigners from all over the world have invaded India as traders, armies and immigrant. These people carried the legacy of their own lands and the beautifully built structures that we see today act as the evidence of that elegant architecture we have inherited. Amongst the many treasures of the past we have the forts, palaces, royal gardens, libraries, tombs, monuments and museums.

 

The heritage of India comprises of performing arts, crafts, traditions, religion, customs, philosophy, history, beliefs, health, medicine, travel, cuisine, literature, painting and languages. Each one of these heritages has taken birth from the amalgamation of migrating cultures with the Indian cultures.
