Abstract

Culture is a running blood in the artery of a man or a country from which it makes all round progress. Nourished through culture, a citizen of a nation leaves a special identity before society and the other nations. Thus culture becomes synonym of a person, a society and a nation. If we neglect our culture, we cannot make all round progress because culture is a watchman a defender and a guard of our characters, morality and nationality. On the other side it describes the traditions of the past in the references of the present and the other it gives natural and calm acceptance to the new changes of society. It does not accept the negative aspects. Travel and culture are related to each other. Through travel one can get more particular view to a complete knowledge, which one had seen, better than any other information. If we are travelling through an area, we can survey and observe it in a better way. One comes very close to the people. So, ‘Travel’ is one best source of knowing culture. ‘’ Indica’’, written by a foreign traveller, Magsthenese, is the best source book on Indian culture and political system. Many foreign writers came in India and described Indian culture, society, economic pattern and condition and political system in their books. Among these writers are Huein-Tsang, Fi-hein, It-sing and Albaruni. Books written by these writers are best source of Indian culture.
