Tree of Life Resort & Spa

Unlike many of the popular tourist destinations that you may have visited, this city goes on in spite and not because of its visitors. It is a city that requires you to be sensitive, spiritual, careful, and open-minded – even if the experience is not quite the one you expected. So plunge in; cruise the river, visit the temples, go for a live sarod concert, attend the evening Aarti (prayer), walk the small lanes which go back a thousand years and make the most of each and every moment because such experiences rarely come your way.
