Visit Eastern India
Eastern India is a land of temples, stupas, wildlife parks, spiritual cities and the snow-covered summits of the Himalayas. The ancient city of Varanasi and the sacred River Ganges draw pilgrims from across the world, while Kolkata, the capital of western Bengal, is a fascinating mix of imperial edifices, teeming bazaars, museums, elegant hotels, and other monuments, such as the Victoria Memorial.
