Bihar, the cradle of Buddhism
Bihar is a region of central India, the cradle of Buddhism, whose main attraction is the city of Bodhgaya in the southern part of the state. It was in Bodhgaya, under a bodhi tree, that Siddhartha Gautama becomes the ‘Buddha’. From this period onwards, Bihar became an important center of Buddhism teaching. Various archaeological sites like Nalanda, Kesariya and Vaishali attest to this spiritual effervescence. Nalanda, a World Heritage Site, was one of the world’s leading, and is reputed to be the worlds oldest universities; it is believed to have had up to 2,000 teachers and 10,000 students.

Merveilles du Karnataka
"Lors de notre voyage au Karnataka j’ai découvert des lieux et temples vraiment fabuleux. Les homestays était tous différents avec à chaque fois un accueil chaleureux dans des endroits très calmes pour un repos bien mérité. Notre chauffeur, Raj était toujours à l’écoute pour nos demandes et disponible. Ce voyage avec Mathini Travel nous a permis de découvrir plein de beaux endroits à l’écart des zones trop touristiques.”
JOURNEY TO THE ROCK-CUT TEMPLES
"We are back home after exciting time in India. I am grateful to Mathini Travel for expert tour arrangements which commenced on October 7, 2019. We did Maharastra and Vrindavan and Mathura. We didn’t have much idea about where and how to do the tour. Mathini took the interest to organize the tours with minor details. For example arranged the days of tour accommodating closing days of Ellora and Ajanta Caves. We wouldn’t have done such pleasant tour without her. She was very flexible about payments. Our flight which we booked at the end of the tour was postponed by a day, but she made sure the Airport transport was rearranged for our convenience. My past tour of Rajasthan with her prompted me to get her help again. I have no doubt that she has great first hand knowledge and expertise of touring India. I look forward to next trip with her! Wishing her Best in her Tour services."
