Golden Triangle of India
Delhi –Jaipur -Agra – Varanasi - Delhi
The Golden Triangle of north India is one of the most visited circuits of India. India is such a diversified country, it’s not one destination rather it has the combination of so many destinations. The tour primarily covers four of the most vibrant, beautiful and amazing cities of India:
- New Delhi: the capital of India
- Jaipur : The Rajasthani Capital with its colorful traditions of chivalry and valour.
- Agra: The reflection of Mughal rule and home to the spectacular Taj Mahal.
- Varanasi: The spiritual Capital & the eldest city of India
Delhi is home to people of different regions, languages, and cultures. Created mainly between the thirteenth and seventeenth centuries, and has the added appeal of having a rich historical and cultural basis that can be seen at every nook and corner in her streets. From the bustling lanes of her old city to the archaic charm of her Lutyens center, to the many monuments that mark the richness of her past.
Then we come to Jaipur. This capital of the state of Rajasthan was actually color washed with pink to create the impression similar to the red sandstone of the Mughal cities. Like any good tourist spot Jaipur has all the amenities of big city, but its real charm lies only in the inner lanes and streets of her markets. The regal aspect of this desert city is obvious to all who visit her and the atmosphere is infused with the romance, adventure and bravery of an amazingly rich historical tradition. Jaipur is also poplar for its Elephant Festival that is unique to it. Complete with its camels, elephant rides, desert sounds and folk culture, Jaipur is one of the most colorful experiences one can hope to have.
From here we move on to Agra where we witness a completely different atmosphere. Agra biggest claim to fame is the Taj Mahal that stands as a lasting tribute to love and lovers beyond time. Chosen to be the seat of their power by the Mughals, this city began its journey to fame in 1526 with the arrival of the Mughal King Babur. Filled with architectural gems, it also has a rich tradition of handicraft and culture. One of the best things about Agra is that it offers easily accessible and adventurous excursion possibilities like the Bharatpur bird sanctuary, and the Fatehpur Sikri famous for its mystic Sufism.
Varanasi is situated on the banks of River Ganges, which is believed to have the power of washing away all of one's sins. Varanasi is the oldest city of the world. Varanasi is more than 3000 years old and is famous as the city of temples. In Varanasi, there are temples at every few paces. Varanasi is the most popular pilgrimage point for the Hindus. One of the seven holiest cities, Varanasi city is also one the Shakti Peethas and one of the twelve Jyotir Linga sites in India.
