A tour of India is by no means complete unless you see the cultural side of India. Seeing Indian performing arts such as a classical dance recital or attending an Indian music show can enhance your understanding of the local culture. You can go to a show in any big city in India and witness Indian artists performing on the stage. Luxury hotels generally hold free shows for their foreign guests in the hotel itself. (Tip: If you visit Khajuraho, Konark (Konarak), Mahabalipuram (Mamallapuram), or Hampi during the Dance Festival time, you can see top-notch Indian dancers performing various classical Indian dances in an open-air auditorium right in front of the ancient temples of these places. The experience will be unforgettable. Check the event calenders of these places or ask your travel agent.) The following stamps show some of the classical forms of Indian dancing.
