Descended from the Gods
They have curled ears and you can feel their impressive presence long before you see them. The Marwari is an old and rare horse breed, only found in India. Their days as war horses are over, but the loyal, strong and persevering character still shines through their brilliant appearance. Some people believe these horses are descended from the gods and their breeding history goes back until the 12th century. Let's explore the legendary world of the Marwari and meet all kind of different horses on this photographic adventure!
India hosts too many wonders and magic to just focus on horses. The journey will start at the date of Diwali, which is one of the biggest festivals in Hindu culture. "Diwali" means rows of lighted lamps and we will join the traditional celebrations. Furthermore you will have the chance to visit a Leopard sanctuary, famous forts and castles, shop on traditional spice and textile markets and explore temples. It comes naturally to also offer a trip to one of the 7 world wonders and UNESCO heritage - The Taj Mahal. All touristic trips are optional for you and will be discussed with the group.
