Gautama Buddha is a great legacy in India and inspires people from across the world. Being home to some of the major pilgrimage sites for those on the Buddhist trail, India offers a deep spiritual, cultural and historical insight into the life, works and philosophy that the Buddha is said to have lived and left behind. In the melting pot of religions that India has been, Buddhism has played an important part. We take you across the destinations that He explored as His life progressed, from Bodh Gaya where He is said to have attained enlightenment to Sarnath where He delivered his first sermon. In this journey we also stop to look at the art and architecture that has been left behind, as in Sanchi in Madhya Pradesh. We explore the Tibetan Buddhist culture through destinations such as Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh and West Bengal and also move towards the northern part of the country, to Ladakh, to soak in the beauty of the landscape and rich culture of monasteries. Beyond our focus on the Buddha, we share some information about delicious local drinks available in India, images of the royal miniature paintings from Udaipur in Rajasthan along with the medicinal qualities of Henna and an understanding on how Satyajit Ray remains very relevant today.
