We travel to Vrindavan – known as one of India’s most sacred places where according to Hinduism, Lord Krishna spent his childhood days. The story of Krishna’s transcendental pastimes and play are still alive here. You will immerse yourself in an authentic and traditional cultural experience. At the Jiva institute, your days will be filled with lectures, yoga classes, meditation, excursions and more. Expand your perspective. See and live India as it has always been.

Next stop – Jaipur. Known as the Pink City because of the color of the stone used exclusively in the walled city, Jaipur’s bazaars sell embroidered leather shoes, blue pottery, tie and dye scarves and other exotic wares. We will be staying at Diggi Palace, located at the heart of Jaipur. Amidst its creative architecture, resonates a reflection of the country’s deeply rooted history dating back to over 150 years. Every nuance registers the strength of the culture and wide horizons of the traditions. Spreading over an expansive landscape of over 18 acres, it offers serenity. As colorful as it seems and as lively as it looks, Diggi Palace is a vibrant amalgamation of cultures, heritage and art that dwells in the heart of Jaipur.
