The Rough Guide to India is the most comprehensive travel guide to this fascinating country, with knowledgable descriptions of its stunning temples, mosques, museums and other sights. There are detailed listings of accommodation, restaurants and nightlife options to suit all budgets, as well as clear guidance through the maze of Indian transportation links. These features are accurately marked on attractively designed maps of all the states, major cities and other areas of interest to travellers, from Delhi's Paharganj to Havelock Island in the Andamans. Add to this superb photography showing a selection of India's highlights and three sections covering the themes of handicrafts, Bollywood and sacred places. Many practical issues such as social and etiquette tips are given in the opening Basics section, while Contexts gives a rich background in the country's history, religions, wildlife and some handy assistance with the predominant language, Hindi.
