Golden Triangle Tours

The golden triangle tour is a triangle-city tour: making a geographical triangle as one traverses through Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, three fabulous places! Its a lot of history, culture and beauty packaged together.

Delhi : the heart of India, its capital city. The majestic Rashtrapati Bhavan- the President's residence, is housed here. With an eclectic mix of cultures, ethinicities, urbanization and history, it is a city with a lot of character. The Red fort, Humayun's tomb, Qutb Minar stand as testimonies to Delhi's ancient history. In midst of the history is a lot of shopping – Delhi's markets are amazing and colourful. The “chandi chowk”, in the old city gives one a flavour of street shopping. The Akshardam and the Lotus temples are popular, not only as places of worship but also for their unique architecture. Another side to the city, is its urban face. The malls, the world class restaurants, the theatres and other urban features, makes it a truly hospitable, urbane international destination. It is where the old and the new are interwoven with threads of peace.

The next destination, Agra is poetry itself. Home to the Symbol of Love, the Taj Mahal, Agra is indeed a wonder-of-the-world. The beautiful Taj Mahal on the banks of the Yamuna, is almost a surreal experience. But there's lots more to Agra – the sprawling Agra Fort, known for its architecture and aesthetics, Fathepursikri – the ancient capital of Emperor Akbar, with its intricate art are must-sees. But it is the Taj, which is the jewel in the crown for Agra. Love looms large here and it sure is catching. Love does make the world go round and Agra proudly asserts it.

Jaipur – the Pink City! Citadels and palaces adorn this city. The famous Hawa mahal (Palace of winds), the Jantar mantar (collection of astronomical instruments) are really more than just architectural marvels, they're closer to a wonder. The Amber fort, the Maharaja Palace, the Jal mahal are some of the palaces that this delightful city holds. Jaipur's skyline is filled with palaces! One can see majestic architectural creations, reeked in art here. Jaipur is extremely colourful –just like the vibrant clothing here – yellow, red, maroon, pink. One can enjoy a colonial stay in Jaipur, with many of the city's palaces now converted into homestays and hotels. They offer the tourist a royal experience. A traveller to Jaipur enters the city as a commoner and leaves feeling regal. 

The Golden triangle tour is a perfect package of history, art and lots of love. Be sure to not miss it, when in India.
