Athithi devo bhava (guest is God)
India Tourism, Dubai

The government of India aims to develop the country into a sustainable tourism destination.

India is one of the world's oldest living civilisations and also the world's largest democracy, which has made stupendous progress among developing nations. It is a land where temple elephants exist amicably with the microchip.

India's impressive variety of history and culture, from the ancient Gangetic kingdoms to the present state, harmoniously blend to form a unique atmosphere in more than a million square kilometres of scenic sights.
