~~ The Breathtaking Beauty of INDIA -- a gallery in high-res, wallpaper-sized Images!

Hi guys

India's booming economy means increased tourism and development and renovation of cities, historic sites and preservation of natural beauty of the most diverse nation on the planet. This thread aims to document that.

I've resized the pics 1024x768 pixels for ease of viewing in the thread. If you're going to use any of these pics as wallpapers, I recommend clicking the links to the large size (high resolution) versions of the image!

Cheers,
Jai
