The most outstanding tourist circuit in India, the golden triangle. It contains the three most vibrant and fascinating cities in India. Known as Delhi (the capital of India), Agra (home of the spectacular Taj Mahal) and Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan famous for its tradition and culture. If you are planning to visit india for the first time and want to experience the difference there is no other better option than golden triangle.
Golden Triangle gives you the opportunity to follow the Path that connects you to the story of an emperor (Shahjahan) who made a wonderful monument in memory of his favorite woman and now the world knows it as One of the seven wonders of the world (tajmahal). ). to the city that is painted in familiar pink (jaipur). And then to the city that is captured, destroyed, and rebuilt a couple of times came the center of various kingdoms and empires that is known as the city of big-hearted people, the capital of India (Delhi).
We are going to check out those abandoned and almost forgotten streets that were once the center of many kingdoms.
Currently the eighth largest city in the world. According to history thousands of years ago it was like a jungle and snake house known as (khandav praatah) that became a beautiful city when kauravas (from the great hindu epic mahabharata) offered five villages to their cousins (pandavas) to establish his own kingdom near the bank of the Yamuna River. The ruins of his kingdom can still be seen near the ancient fort.
Memorable tour of the golden triangle for a lifetime.
A completely different experience compared to other cities.
Beginning with distinguished delhi to remarkable agra to splendid jaipur. Golden Triangle is the best opportunity to feel the diversity of visits, color, flavor and architecture.
The picturesque capital of Rajasthan
Note that Jaipur is a capital of four million inhabitants, but it maintains the authenticity of a city proud of its cultural heritage.
Jaipur is the capital of Rajasthan, the most picturesque state in India . A visit to Rajasthan uncovers the world of maharajas and princesses, harems and warriors of this region ruled by the Rajput caste for centuries.
The beautiful palaces and forts that crown the mountains are essential visits, but also the colorful bazaars , full of exotic products at very good prices.
Stops between Jaipur and Agra
Between Jaipur and Agra you can discover life in rural India at one or more of the following stops:
- Abhaneri is a small town that allows you to walk between mud houses and see one of the most extraordinary stepped wells in India.
- Visit the abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri with its great mosque and dargah, as well as Akbar’s palaces.
- Also down the road is the Keoladeo Nature Reserve
- If you can stray, Ranthambore National Park offers you the chance to come face to face with the Bengal tiger . This is one of the most sighting parks in North India.
Agra and the Taj Mahal
Agra is the true jewel of the Golden Triangle. There is no traveler who does not feel the magnetism of one of the 7 wonders of the world .
The Taj Mahal is a perfectly proportioned building that never disappoints. It has always seemed to me that it is one of those monuments that is just as you imagine it when you see a photograph. Not bigger, not smaller… Just perfect.
The Taj outshines the city of Agra which has many reasons to visit. It was the imperial capital of the Mughals for a few decades. You can see:
- Agra Fort and the Mughal Palaces
- Akbar ‘s tomb at Sikandra
- Itmad-ud-Daula , the small Taj Mahal
- The old quarter barely explored by travelers.
