Customs & Traditions

Indian architecture is rooted in its history, culture and religion. The best-known architectural styles include the many varieties of Hindu temple architecture; Indo-Islamic architecture, especially Mughal architecture; Rajput architecture and Indo-Saracenic architecture. The origin of Indian art can be traced to prehistoric settlements. It consists of a variety of art forms, including painting, sculpture, pottery, and textile arts such as woven silk.

Theatre in India is one of the most ancient forms of theatre and features detailed textual, sculptural and dramatic effects. Like in the areas of music and dance, Indian theatre is also defined by dramatic performance based on the concept of Nritya, which is a Sanskrit word for drama but encompasses dramatic narrative, virtuosic dance, and music. In contemporary India, the country is famous for its film industry based in Mumbai – known as Bollywood.

According to the 2011 Indian national census, the population of India stood at over 1.2 billion people, making it the world’s second-most populous country. It is a diverse multi-ethnic country that is home to thousands of small ethnic and tribal groups. Among the documented invasions that added significantly to the Indian ethnic mix are those of Persians, Scythians, Arabs, Mongols, Turks and Afghans. The last and politically most successful – that from Europe – vastly altered Indian culture but had relatively little impact on India’s ethnic composition.

Although approximately 80% of the citizens of India are Hindus, the country has a substantial population of Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and adherents of tribal faiths.
