A spiritual adventure in India
UNIWORLD is this year offering a 13-day Golden Triangle and Sacred Ganges spiritual adventure by land and river. The journey’s highlights include a pilgrimage to Kolkata, visits to the site of Mother Teresa’s home and tomb, a trip to the Rajbari Temples devoted to the Hindu god Shiva, plus a chance to see the mesmerising Taj Mahal at Agra. There is also a three-day optional extension in the subcontinent’s holiest city, Varanasi, to visit the River Ganges. Highlights include a private boat ride to observe a Ganga Aarti ceremony led by a Hindu priest at sunset, a devotional ritual performed in honour of the goddess of the river. There will also be an option to take a boat ride along the sacred river at sunrise when hundreds of Hindus can be seen bathing, performing yoga asanas, and making offerings to Mother Ganga. Prices for the tour lead in at $12,409 per person.
