Twilight Tour of Taj Mahal

In order to show you the best of India, Spirit Journeys have created the Twilight tour of Taj Mahal. This special tour gives you the opportunity to discover not only the charms of Taj Mahal, but also the cultural treasures of Delhi, Agra, Jodhpur, Shahpura and Udaipur. 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. Its structure is highly interesting. The four sides of this great monument are completely identical. But what makes it even more compelling is that Taj Mahal appears to be changing colours at different times of the day. From pink colour in the morning, milky white in the evening to golden at night when lit by moon. You’ll be impressed with its architecture, rich history and breathtaking moonlight visit to this requiem of love. You’ll also discover the wonders and treasures of Delhi, the capital of India. There is no city in India with as long history as Delhi. 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.

Jaipur is one of the most colourful and vibrant cities in India. The city abounds in historical and cultural sites. Jodhpur, known as the ‘Blue City’ is the second largest city in Rajasthan. This city is a very popular tourist destination because of its beautiful palaces, forts and temples. It is also called the ‘Sun City ‘ because of the bright and sunny weather during the whole year. Here, you’ll enjoy the exclusive evening champagne tour of Mehrangarh Fort. The list of the wonders and treasures of mystical India is endless. We have prepared the best of it. Our twilight tour of Taj Mahal is one of the first and most exciting on this ‘must visit’ list.
