One of India’s most popular and well-travelled routes, the Golden Triangle never fails to impress.
Explore the three cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur and see the many contrasts between these iconic destinations.
Delhi was the seat of power for numerous dynasties before the British took over. Agra had its share of sovereigns including the Mughal emperors who later moved on to Delhi. And while the Rajput rulers of Rajasthan who held sway in Jaipur have a long history of rivalry and infighting, their decedents live on.
As the national capital, Delhi thrives. Progress has long since pushed the boundaries of this grand ceremonial city built during the British Raj, with the development of highways and modern skyscrapers. Remnants of the past such as The Red Fort and Qutab Minar draw visitors to the city, while pockets boutiques pleasantly surprise.
The centrepiece of our Golden Triangle tours is nothing less than one of the world’s most recognised sites and its greatest monument to love – the unsurpassed Taj Mahal in Agra. By contrast Jaipur has maintained its traditional industries including jewellery, handicrafts and pottery, while the city’s Rajput descendants give the city a vibrant cosmopolitan air. It prospers as the bustling capital and principal gateway to the state of Rajasthan.
See for yourself why this is one of India’s most explored routes on our tailored Golden Triangle tours.
