India’s Golden Triangle

Delhi, Agra, Jaipur. Three most captivating sites in India. This India Golden Triangle tour offers the best of mystical India. Delhi is India’s capital and a major gateway to the country. A vibrant metropolis, mixture of ancient and modern. There is no city in India with as long history as Delhi. The city itself is a history, and its monuments are just pages of a book where the history is written. Delhi is a home to many famous temples, mosques, churches, museums, forts, towers and market places. It is also known for its amazing gardens and parks. The list of ‘must visit’ sites is endless. You’ll be impressed by Jama Masjid, the largest and best known mosque in India, Lotus Temple, Birla Temple, Jantar Mantar observatory, National Gandhi Museum. You can find Delhi’s world famous gold and silver ornaments and jewellery, in the biggest and the richest street of Old Delhi, the Silver Street. New Delhi’s most striking cultural feature is Qutab Minar, the tallest stone tower in India. Our next station is – Taj Mahal. A jewel of Agra. A famous Indian poet, R. Tagore, described the Taj Mahal as ‘a teardrop on the cheek of time’. Taj Mahal is one of the most iconic sites in India. Its glorious structure, built of white marble, symbolizes love, purity and pain. Visiting Taj Mahal is a breathtaking experience. New Delhi. Qutab Minar, the tallest stone tower in India.

Our India Golden Triangle tour finishes with amazing Jaipur, one of the most colourful and vibrant cities in India. The city abounds in historical and cultural sites. We are taking you to its most striking sites – the Amber Fort, the Palace of Winds, known as Hawa Mahal, and the magnificent City Palace with its exquisite colours, paintings and fabulous surrounding gardens.
