He was only 17 years of age when he embarked upon his journey with his father and uncle. Marco Polo became a confidant of Mughal King Kublai Khan who ruled China then. Marco Polo was a gifted linguist and a keen observer. During his travel through North India, he admired the techniques of Yoga when he saw yogis in meditation and other yogic postures who looked very serene and poised.
