Tourism is an important and growing industry in India.

5 Facts About Indian Visa Services

November 4th, 2013
Planning a trip to India? You'll need an Indian visa. Here are 5 things you need to know before you apply: 1) Apply ahead of time. Some countries offer visas on arrival to US citizens. For example, if you visit Mexico, you simply go through immigration and get a visa stamped in to your passport- no need to apply ahead of time. However, India does not offer visas on arrival. You must apply in advance, or you will be denied entry. 2) Check your passport. As long as your passport is valid for the length of time you plan to be in India, you're good, right? Wrong. Your passport must be valid for at least six months after your arrival in India, and it must have at least 2 blank pages in the back. You won't get your visa if your passport doesn't meet these qualifications. 3)

April 3rd, 2011

Leopards and clouded leopards are also present, as well as a variety of smaller wild cats. The park encompasses both grassland and forest habitats, so the wildlife is quite diverse. In addition to the tigers, notable forest animals include the slow loris, several different types of langurs, sloth bears and an unusual armo

March 6th, 2011
This week's featured UNESCO World Heritage Site is the less-well-known older sibling of the world-famous Taj Mahal. The Red Fort of Agra is located about a mile and half away from the Taj Mahal. Like the Taj, the Red Fort of Agra is a relic of the Mughal Empire, which ruled India from the 16th to the mid-19th centuries. While the Taj Mahal was built as a monument to Mumtaz Mahal, the favorite wife of the Emperor Shah Jahan, the Red Fort of Agra was the center of the Mughal administration and the home of the imperial family. More of a walled city than a mere fort, this breathtaking collection of buildings gets its name from the red sandstone that the walls and many of the buildings are constructed out of. Inside the walls, there were originally about 500 sandstone buildings, though so
