India is a melting pot of different cultures, languages and religions, which all co-exist happily. In India, the entire country celebrates each other’s religious festivals. Hinduism has many gods, whereas Suffism and Sikhism don’t idolise any at all.
This tour offers a brief introduction to each different religion in India, visiting a relevant place of worship for each, and gives you a lowdown of each one’s idiosyncrasies. You will be blessed by the priest in the Birla Temple, visit the Sacred Heart Cathedral dating from 1929, move on to Bangla Sahib Gurudwara, where thousands of devotees are fed every day and you’ll even have the opportunity to volunteer in the temple’s kitchens. This religious tour ends at the mausoleum of one of the most famous Sufi saints.
Following your excursion introducing you to India’s religions, you may wish to have lunch at Karims, one of the most historic restaurants in Delhi.
