FIVE PLACES TO FALL IN LOVE WITH INDIA 🇮🇳🇮🇳
Join in the communal kitchen of the Golden Temple, #Amritsar
A thousand hands work in unison here, with one motive - to serve. A surprising serenity reigns over the communal hall as a vast collection of volunteers from all over the world prepare food, wash dishes, chop vegetables and love each other through action. The immaculate @tajswarna
is a perfect base to explore this frontier city.
Ride Marwari horses in the desert...
Discover the miniature fort of @mihir_garh
and take to horseback through painted villages and ancient temples. Our other favourite experiences include @bonniedundlod
safaris and the regal horse festival Ashwa Poojan in #Udaipur
led by the royal family every October on the 9th day of Hindu festival #Navratra
Go Provençal in #Pondicherry
Go behind the pastel-pink, blossom-draped gates of the new @coromandelcafe
in Pondicherry’s French Quarter and drink rosé surrounded by murals of palm trees and chandeliers fashioned from silk. Sink into sleep at the 19th century colonial-meets-contemporary @ledupleix.pondicherry
Play polo in Ladakh...
….or at least watch it and relish the thrilling setting on the world’s highest #polo
ground during the mountain kingdom of #Ladakh
annual polo festival every July. Base yourself at 19th-century @stockpalace
, still the home of the King and his family and enjoy cultural shows, local cuisine and the in-house museum.
Listen to Sufi music at Nagaur Fort, Rajasthan...
A scene reminiscent of a thousand and one nights, the grounds of ancient #NagaurFort
are lit by 5000 oil lamps and overtaken by a sea of tents as India’s great and good descend to listen to the magical, haunting sounds of qawwali, traditional sufi music, watch whirling dervishes and feast on local delicacies under a moonlit canopy at this intimate event hosted every February by the Maharaja of Jodhpur.
