It is clear from the above list that at least 20,000 people are visiting the INDIA page every day. Further it is found that, in general that the INDIA page is most visited after United States and United Kingdom pages.

So, Can any one explain, Why so many people are visiting INDIA page and Why it is so papular amoung the countries in Wikipedia Searches ???

As per my understanding,

  • All are NOT doing research on INDIA.
  • Among them at least 50% may be planning to visit India.
  • So, on a Tourist angle, many are trying to understand India, before taking a decision to visit India.

So, I feel that, we should provide more details on Tourism and display more images of Tourist interests. for quick understanding.

I Propose for a Picture Gallery or Addition of more Images in the INDIA page Article.

Proposal for Addition of Images[edit]

INDIA should be projected as a Multi-Cultured Country.

Please NOTE the following:

  • In the entire article the word "Temple" is missing, though Hindus are more than 80% living in India.
  • Temples of South India, which are World famous to be displayed.
  • To satisfy all, one Picture Gallery may be introduced
  • At least one Image of each Religion may be displayed in the Gallery with suitable headings/descriptions.
  • INDIA page---Culture Section --- Sports is the only Sub-Heading. We can add 2 more Sub-Headings as "Dance" and "Architecture"

I propose the following images for inclusion (with reasons) in the Culture Section (under Dance and Architecture).

Lord Nataraja Statue



  • The Lord (or King) of Dance
  • Nataraj (literally. The Lord (or King) of Dance, Sanskrit: नटराज, Kannada: ನಟರಾಜ, Tamil: கூத்தன் Kooththan, /nɐ.tɐ.rɑ.dʒɐ/) is a depiction of the Hindu god Shiva as the cosmic dancer who performs his divine dance to destroy a weary universe and make preparations for god Brahma to start the process of creation. Nataraja is most often depicted through a statue. The dance of Shiva in Tillai, the traditional name for Chidambaram, forms the motif for all the depictions of Shiva as Nataraja.
  • The form is present in most Shiva temples in South India, and is the main deity in the famous temple at Chidambaram.[1]
  • The sculpture is usually made in bronze, with Shiva dancing in an aureole of flames, lifting his left leg (and in rare cases, the right leg) and balancing over a demon or dwarf (Apasmara) who symbolizes ignorance. It is a well known sculptural symbol in India and popularly used as a symbol of Indian culture.[2]

Srirangam Temple


  • According to the temple's website, Srirangam can be considered the biggest functioning Hindu temple in the world as it covers an area of about 6,31,000 m². (156 Acres) with a perimeter of 4 km (10,710 ft).[3] Srirangam claims to be the biggest functioning temple, because Angkor Wat is the biggest but non-functioning Hindu temple in the world.
  • The Srirangam temple complex is composed of 7 concentric walled sections and 21 gopurams[4].
  • The gopuram of the temple is called the Rajagopuram and is 236 feet (72 m) tall, the tallest in Asia.

Rameswaram Temple


  • The grandest part of the temple is the 1219 m pillared corridor consisting of 3.6 m high granite pillars, richly carved and well proportioned. The perspective presented by these pillars run uninterruptedly to a length of nearly 230 m.
  • Rameswaram is significant for the Hindus as a pilgrimage to Benaras is incomplete without a pilgrimage to Rameswaram. Both the Vaishnavites and Shaivites visit this pilgrimage centre which is known as the Varanasi of the south.
  • The presiding deity here is in the form of a Linga with the name Sri Ramanatha Swamy, it also happens to be one of the twelve Jyotirlingas.
  • According to legend, this is the place from where Lord Rama built a bridge Ram Setu(also known as Adam's Bridge) across the sea to Lanka to rescue his consort Sita from her abductor Ravana.
  • This is also the place where Lord Rama worshiped Lord Shiva to be absolved of the sin of killing Ravana.
  • Ex-president of India, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, hails from a fishing hamlet called Dhanushkodi situated on this island.

Tirumala Venkateswara Temple

(Tirumala Venkateswara Temple)

The temple is the richest and the most visited place of worship in the world.[5] The temple is visited by about 50,000 to 100,000 pilgrims daily, while on special occasions and festivals, like the annual Brahmotsavam, the number of pilgrims shoots up to 500,000, making it one of the most visited holy place in the world.[6]

According to the legend, the temple has a self-manifested idol murti of Lord Vishnu, with the Lord believed to have resided here for the entire Kali Yuga. In Sri Vaishnava tradition, the temple is considered one of the 108 Divya Desam sites.




  • Bharatanatyam (Tamil: பரதநாட்டியம்) is a classical Indian dance form originating in Tamil Nadu[7][8][9][10][11], India.
  • One of the oldest of the classical dance forms in India, it is also known as the fifth Veda. Bharatanatyam is usually accompanied by the classical music. It has its inspirations from the sculptures of the ancient temple of Chidambaram. Bharatanatyam, as the name depicts is the combination of:
BHA- Bhava (Expression), RA- Raga (Music) and TA- Tala (Rhythm)
  • Bharatanatyam is a traditional dance-form known for its grace, purity, tenderness, and sculpturesque poses.
  • Today, it is one of the most popular and widely performed dance styles and is practiced by many dancers all over the world.[12][13][14]
This Bharata Natyam dancer's right hand is in the Katakamukha Hasta, the 3 joined fingers symbolizing the sacred syllable Aum. The left hand's fingers are in Alapadma Hasta, the rotating lotus of spiritual light. The eyes are directed towards the Supreme Lord. The left leg is lifted, symbolizing the swift ascent of the consciousness in one step from the Earth to the Heaven.
