India's Religious Festivals
Some consider the Indian civilization to be the oldest on earth, and its culture, traditions and religions reflect that history. The country plays host to a number of colorful and lively religious festivals that display its customs. For example, the Holi festival is both a religious and a harvest festival, and is striking due to its tradition of throwing colored powder or water at other revelers. Aarti is another religious festival, and the city of Varanasi holds a particularly significant incarnation of it along the banks of the River Ganges.
