India is a diverse experience. The mystique of India, its history, religions, fabulous historical monuments such as the Taj Mahal, art and culture, have all attracted visitors from time immemorial, to find India's experience unforgettable. Let us take you around from Sikkim in the magnificent Himalayas to the beautiful beaches of Goa, or perhaps from the wonderful Havelis of Jaisalmer to the backwaters of Kerala. The marvelous temples of Khajuraho? We have that too!
There is much to see here--the large impressive Red Fort with its palaces and public halls, the perfection of the Jama Masjid (mosque), the monumental Qutab Minar, the sandstone tombs of Humayun and Safdarjung, the proud battlements of Purana Quila, the imposing India Gate and its environs, the peaceful gardens of Shantivana and Rajghat and even the recently commissioned, extremely modem Baha'i Temple made of marble and shaped exquisitely like the petals of a lotus bloom. Delhi's modern shops and rows of emporia dazzle with an array of shopping opportunities, for, all of India's splendid shopping is easily at hand here. In this modern city, on any given day, you can choose to spend time at a classical music or dance recital, a stage show of Broadway's latest hit, or a son et lumiere highlighting the city's rich past. Or participate in the innumerable activities at Pragati Maidan, the country's premier exhibition grounds.
Delhi is always host to not only exhibitions--where you can stroll in and buy exquisite masterworks for a song but also to art and cultural shows and sports tourneys. There are festivals and parades too.
Krishna Air Services has taken care to ensure that the dynamism of Delhi is blended with just the right festival spirit to package for you a holiday that, like Delhi, will endure with time.

Basilica of Bom Jesus lie the remains of St. Francis Xavier who came to Goa with no possessions save a breviary and a crucifix. There is also the St. Cathedral with its imposing facade, the St. Francis of Asisi Church and Convent built in the Manueline style, the Renaissance style Chapel of Saint Catherine, and of course the Convent and Church of Santa Monica, simply built in the Doric style. But no less important are Goa's temples, among them the impressive Manguesh temple.
There was always the sea in Goa, and of course the scimitar shaped beaches, among the most secluded and beautiful in the world. But it was the Portuguese who arrived in Goa at the beginning of the 11th century and remained here for four and a half centuries, who gave Goa its essential flavor. Goa is a bit like paradise. Here the constant music of the sea and of the fun Loving Goans is the rhythm to which time abides. Golden Goa, calm and quiet, is erased from its leisurely slumber only once every year when the drum beats echo enthusiastically to the arrival of the lent carnival in February. On that occasion, for three days and nights there is fun, fiesta and feasting and Goa does not sleep, for the carnival is a throng with excitement, music, pagentry processions and dancing.
