Explore Delhi – The Heart Of India
We start our Golden Triangle Tour with the capital of India, Delhi. Our representatives will pick you up from the airport or any other desired pick-up spot. After the usual check-in routine at the hotel, we will take you for an enthralling tour of Delhi city. Delhi has been a spectator to changing dynasties for ages, and all those attempts of coup d’etat are reflected in the historical monuments and architectural heritage of the city.
Delhi reflects a perfect amalgamation of modernization and tradition where modern architecture shares space with ancient buildings. Explore the history behind monumental buildings like Qutub Minar, Red Fort, India Gate, Jantar Mantar, Jama Masjid, Mughal Tombs, and Akshardham Temple. India Gate is the Arc-de-Triomphe of India, built to commemorate the death and sacrifice of 70,000 Indian soldiers who fought during World War 1. The eternal flame at the India Gate burns day and night to mark their remembrance.
The circular colonnade called the Parliament House has offices of various ministries near the India Gate. We will also visit the Rashtrapati Bhawan, the residence of the President of India. Next, we will visit the Qutub Minar, the tallest brick minaret in the world. Raj Ghat is the cremation spot for the legendary Mahatma Gandhi. The Red Fort is a majestic monument that showcases the grandeur of Mughals. We will also visit the oldest mosque in Asia, the Jama Masjid.
Admire the colonial architecture and fine artistry of the primitive establishments. Pick up some souvenirs as you walk through the dusty lanes of crowded marketplaces such as Chandni Chawk, Sadar Bazar, Sarojini Nagar market, and Karol Bagh. Munch on delicious street food and participate in intriguing cultural practices at the temples. Do not forget to enjoy a fantastic rickshaw ride through the majestic lanes and intricate alleys of Chandni Chowk. The trip to Delhi will take around two days.

You will fall in love with the regal accommodation at the heritage hotels and the glorious splendor of beautiful forts.
The walled city of Jaipur looks even more lively during nighttime when the forts light up, and the dusk creates perfect vibes for an enthralling light and sound show at the Amer Fort. Do not forget to enjoy an appetizing dinner at the Nahargarh Fort.
In Jaipur, we will visit Hawa Mahal, Jal Mahal, and City Palace. We will also explore the world-famous astronomical wonder, Jantar Mantar of Jaipur.
