Precautions to take

Never go to unlit or less crowded areas.
Don’t give money to every monk or beggar coming to you and asking for it; you’d better ignore them.
Stay away from eating oily and fried food.
Don’t visit in summers if you can’t bear the hot season, as you are from a cool-climate country.
Always have your valid Indian visa with yourself to show it when asked by any official.
Keep a small amount of cash, many small shopkeepers and rural-people don’t accept online payments.
Don’t kiss or hug your better half publicly, especially in religious places.
Put off shoes or sleepers before entering religious places.
Stay in only reputed places where most people can understand and speak English.
