Legend has it that colour film was invented specifically to capture the vibrancy of India. (Okay, we made that up, but still.) From architectural gems to iconic animals, this week our travellers offer up a look at the history and heritage of this land through Instagram, bringing you to the imperial Mughal city of Agra, home to sprawling haveli and Rajput-era palaces—and rural Rajasthan, as well.

To see these and more incredible traveller shots from around the world, follow G Adventures on Instagram. But for now, get your scroll on and enjoy a small taste of India!

G Adventures' own @dushyant_singhs took this picture of two magnificent tigers in India. The country’s national symbol, the tiger has inspired Indian myth and folklore for thousands of years, thanks to their strength, grace and power.

G Adventures traveller @apickjones witnessed this traditional dance in Western Rajasthan—an incredible feat of balance.
