This tour takes our travelers around India’s Golden Triangle which is a tourist circuit which connects the national capital Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. On the map, these form a roughly equilateral triangle, some 200-250 km along each side. This triangle has been dubbed “golden” for the extraordinary wealth of cultural and historical splendor on offer in each of the three cities.
Jaipur, capital of the largely desert state of Rajasthan, is home to some of Asia’s best bazaars. You could spend weeks in Delhi, the sprawling, fascinating Indian capital, and not see it all, while Agra, once the heart of the Moghul empire, boasts the unparalleled beauty of the Taj Mahal, which adorns the banks of the Yamuna river. The Golden Triangle is a classic introduction to India: if you’ve never been to the subcontinent before, start here. Which usually involves a flight into Delhi.
Agra is a major tourist destination because of its many Mughal-era buildings, most notably the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort and Fatehpūr Sikrī, all three of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Delhi, officially the National Capital Territory of Delhi, is a city and a union territory of India. There are numerous tourist attractions in Delhi, both historic and modern. The three UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Delhi, Qutb Complex, Red Fort and Humayun’s Tomb are among the finest examples of Indo-Islamic architecture. Delhi has several famous places of worship of various religions. One of the largest Hindu temple complexes in the world, Akshardham is a major tourist attraction in the city.
