India must have seen more royalties, more dynasties and more grandeur than all the countries put together. So it is no wonder that relics steeped way back in centuries are still standing, erect and proud, full of sagas from bygone years. The royal cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur complete the family of Golden Triangle Tour. Depending on your convenience you can chose one of the many packages stretching from 3 days to 4 days and so on. The 3 nights and 4 days golden triangle package tour sounds perfect as it can include all the major as well as minor attractions of the cities.
It starts with you being escorted to your hotel room to mark the beginning of your rendezvous holiday. A day in the Old Delhi sprays an aura of previous times. It is certainly an engaging experience to explore the ever jam packed streets (read chowks). The changing facade of India due to modernization is most apparent here than any other city. The prospect of finding an imperious shrine or architectural wonder like Redfort, Jama Masjid, Chandni Chowk etc at an unexpected turn of a lane itself can take you aback. The curtain of this Act is lowered with dinner at a restaurant.
The New Act is open to New Delhi on on your to Agra. Old Fort, Qutub Minar, Rashtrapathi Bhavan, Parliament, museums etc are covered and one is amazed at the oxymoronic fact of Old Delhi and New Delhi co-existing differently but peacefully. Agra exploration starts after lunch beginning with a halt at the famous Sikandra. The most awe-inspiring part of Akbar’s mausoleum is the message of tolerance ciphered in the ancient architectural style and then follows the Agra Fort looking down with its pristine majesty. After covering the Itmad-ud-Daulah’s, the day is wound up by shopping in ethnic markets.
The next and the most anticipated day begins early in the morning with the vision of much-awaited Taj Mahal resting serenely on Yamuna banks. Taj Mahal is at its best during sunset/sunrise. You can spend few minutes just to make sure that it is not a dream. It is real.
After that, you will be taken back to hotel to proceed to Jaipur. There is a slight stop during the journey so as to visit the Fatehpur Sikri, which is a World Heritage Site (UNESCO). One of our staffs will take you to a hotel so that you can wash off the remains of long and weary journey and get ready for a plunge in the eternal trail of Rajput rule. Do not miss the City palace and its museum, Hawa Mahal, the astronomical observatory Jantar Mantar, various other monuments and picturesque looking markets.
