Golden Triangle Tours

India’s Golden Triangle Tour- a traveler’s heaven!

Owing to the shape formed by these the cities of New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur on a map, and the frequency of tourists visiting the region, the three cities have earned the name of India’s Golden triangle for tourists. The three cities in totality represent the very essence of India, its rich traditions, glorious past and everything in between. Golden triangle tour 4 days is the most favored package owing to a tourist group’s convenience, number of monuments to be covered and the travel time in between.

While Delhi overlaps between the ancient Indian past, the Mughals in the medieval and the English in the recent-most modern past; Agra in totality represents the golden age of the Mughals with magnificent and flamboyant structures that stand testimony to the glory back in the day; Jaipur speaks lengths about the Rajputana valor, glory, richness, traditions and everything that weaves them together!

New Delhi: heart of the nation
Golden Triangle tour by car from Delhi is a favorite amongst the many Golden triangle holiday packages on offer from many of the tour guide operators in and around Delhi & NCR. Being the capital city of India, New Delhi stands at the center of India’s political past and present. Most of the buildings housing Indian government ministries and other offices of importance today have their roots dating back to the British rule. The Indian Parliament, Trimurti Bhawan (erstwhile Prime Minister’s office), India gate, Rashtrapati Bhawan (President’s house) with more than 300 rooms is the largest amongst all imperial buildings in the world. Mughal gardens at the Rashtrapati Bhawan allow entry of the public in the late winter months of February and March.

Red Fort & Jama Masjid at Shahjahanabad in Old Delhi is classic examples of the Mughal architecture, the last of which can be seen in Safdarjung tomb’s style of construction. Humayun’s tomb, Sabz Burj, Delhi & Ajmeri gates being isolated monuments that speak of the importance laid on the design, symmetry and overall aesthetics in construction.

Agra: the erstwhile Mughal
Agra, founded by Sikandar Lodhi, a Lodhi ruler of Delhi sultanate predates the Mughal period when the second Mughal emperor Akbar discovered the city and noticing its strategic location, access to water and other significances declared it the capital (after a short stint at Fatehpur Sikri). Agra is a kaleidoscope of medieval structures so beautiful that it attracts millions of tourists from all corners of the world. Taj Mahal, being the crown jewel of India’s tourism is thronged by tourists at all seasons, but majority being during the winter season. Agra fort’s Mussamman Burj in the Shahjahan palace has a beautiful view of the Taj Mahal. It is said that the emperor during his last days was fond of watching the Taj Mahal from the exact same spot. Monuments inside the agar fort include the massive entrance of Amar Singh gate, Ajmeri gate, Jahangir Hauz, Angoori Bagh, Sheesh Mahal, queen’s winter and summer palaces, Shahjahan palace Diwan- e- Aam, Diwan- e- khas and more!

Itmad-ud-Daula, a precursor monument to the Taj Mahal is also known as the Baby Taj and the evening sunset and the full moon view from Mehtabh Bagh (moonlit garden), from the other side of the Taj Mahal across the river Yamuna is spectacular. It is advisable to book the services of a Taj Mahal tour guide, who will take care of everything from travel to sigh-seeing to accommodation to market visits.

The art forms were initially promoted during the Mughal era and later scaled up into an industry. Fatehpur Sikri, Akbar’s make-shift capital has the grandest entrance- the Buland Darwaza in all of India. Sheikh Salim Chishti’s Dargah & Jodha Bai’s palace are other important structures to visit.

Akbar’s tomb is situated at Sikandara in Agra; another beautiful architecture – it is built in the Charbagh architecture that resembles the concept of heaven in Islam. Platformed architecture with perfect symmetry from all sides, minarets adoring each of the corners – this is one serene and photogenic location to get clicked and spend time at!

Jaipur: home of the Kachwaha Rajputs
Jaipur, the last leg of the Golden triangle tour 5 days speaks volumes of the bygone strong and chivalrous Rajputana rule that lasted for centuries contemporary to the Mughal rule. Starting with the Amber palace and the Jaigarh palace, this golden triangle tour package will take us to places that resemble living history. Amber fort has beautiful entrances, gardens, glass palaces, water conservatories, chiseled walls with beautiful designs, verandahs, decorated palatial rooms etc. A part of the city palace in Jaipur still houses the royal family, and the remaining part is open for the common public to explore. The Hawa Mahal with its “Jharokha” pattern has a fan-following of it own on Instagram. The Lake Palace on the way back from the Amber fort with a sprawling food court by its bank is another place worth spending time at!
