Diwali is the time when Rama was welcomed home after 14 years of being exiled. The whole of Ayodhya yearned for its king. People lit thousands of lamps to greet Sita, Rama and Lakshman, who returned victorious. Diwali is a celebration of reunion with the Beloved Lord and the end of a long painful separation from Him.

On this journey we will visit three beautiful cities of northern India:

Vrindavan is a place where love lives in its highest manifestation. Here Lord Krishna dances an endless Rasa dance with Radha and His gopis, here ma Yasoda scolds and kisses little Krishna in vain attempts to raise her beloved disobedient son, here He frolics with gopas and grazes His cows…

Jaipur is an amazing ‘pink’ city, which is famous for stories about noble and valiant Rajputs. Many self-manifested deities from around India were brought here during the Mogols invasion to be protected. Many of these deities have magnificent temples built here, and only a few deities were returned to their historical sites.

Agra – here we will see the outstanding architectural monument of India, the magnificent royal tomb – the Taj Mahal.
