What lies beneath a temple tower? So you think you are in control of your destiny? What transforms a piece of ordinary rock into a venerable deity?

The Mystic Trail explores questions like these and more. You don’t have to look too far in India to find the seemingly inexplicable. Almost every religious place is a hotbed of seething superstitions, fathomless faith and age-old practices that might seem bizarre to some.

From occult practices and beliefs in the supernatural, to science-like systems and ancient sciences, mysticism permeates everyday living in India. It exists on streets and inside homes. From parrots that foretell your future and planets that make nought of your plans, to tying up your hair or cutting nails, there is an aura of the unknown in almost everything around you.

This trail takes you through fascinating stories hidden behind some common beliefs and practices of the region. The trail won’t give you all the answers, but may leave you with many more questions to ponder on.
