Classical India 2015 (1)

Experience 6,000 YEARS OF Indian Culture and History Students of Ohio State Marion were given the opportunity to experience one of the oldest and most storied cultures in the world, traveling to India in May 2015. Students, faculty, and guest travelers spent 15 days visiting the cities of Agra, Delhi, Khajuraho, Orchha, Varanasi. Students witnessed the Taj Mahal, Hindu Kingdom of Varanasi, the old temples of Khajuraho, and many other sites held sacred to the people of India. They took a boat right down the Ganges, saw the Buddhist temples and monuments in Sarnath where Buddha gave his first lectures and lived, and ate breakfast with Hindu priests.
