Historic Travels of India


              Much of our knowledge of ancient and medieval Indian history comes from the accounts of foreigners who as pilgrims, travellers and traders crossed the seas and difficult land routes to reach India. In their writings on their observations and experiences of a country new and strange to them, they left valuable contributions to the historical understanding of early Indian society. As outsiders, they found worthy of mention facets and facts about the country that native writers missed or often simply took for granted and hence ignored. They acted, often unwittingly, as agents of civilization contact and exchange, bringing with them new ideas, skills and technologies, and returning, in turn, armed with new knowledge as the harbingers of cultural and intellectual change.

Retrace the Historic Travel Routes with us

Throughout ancient and medieval India, numerous foreigners, as pilgrims, travellers and traders, visited India and turned out to be great agents of cultural exchange. They travelled the length and breadth of the country and, in their writings on their observations and experiences of India, left valuable contributions to the historical understanding of early Indian society. The most notable of these travellers were Greeks such as Megasthenes, Chinese such as Fa Hien and Hsuan-Tsang, Islamic such as Al Beruni and Ibn Battuta and Europeans such as Marco Polo and Vasco Da Gama.

Our tours on historic travels revolve around one or more of these travellers, their journeys within India, their observations and experiences. Retrace some of these historic travels and ancient routes with our history expert.
