The combination of all three cities presents the potpourri of India. The entire historical splendour, the soft romanticism that could be felt in surprising Agra and the fierce grandeur of the Rajasthan desert presents India at its best. For centuries, the Golden Triangle has attracted visitors from different parts of the world to India. Undeniable, a first visit to India provides a series of cultural shocks- but most of them will be shocks of delighted astonishment. Astonishment at the vivid colors of the sky, the clothes, the bazaars, the parakeets and peacocks; astonishment at the tolerant proximity of man and animals, even in the streets of large cities, where monkeys play, elephants parade, camels strut and cows meander absent-mindedly. Enchanting sights, sounds, smell and taste of the holiday destinations of Golden Triangle keep charming the visitors. The glorious past of the metropolis of Delhi, the royal retreat at Jaipur and romantic Agra with the unique monument of love - Taj Mahal - offer feast to the senses.
Delhi : Delhi - the capital of India, is also his seat of power. One of India's fastest growing cities, Delhi has spread across the "seven cities", created over more than 5000 years. It has spread across the west bank of the Yamuna River. Remains of the wonderful past survive with towering skyscrapers, posh residential colonies and huge commercial complexes. Delhi has some of the finest museums in the country. Its boutiques and shopping arcades offer access to a wealth of traditional and contemporary skills, from all over the country. Delhi is home to special restaurants to savor gourmets, sprawling parks and gardens with colourful flowers, and a variety of cultural events round the year. The countless faces of the city are simply attractive and excite the curious traveler in a fascinating journey of discovery.
Agra : No tour in India can be complete without a visit to this one-time Mughal city of Agra, the seat of Taj Mahal, beloved monument of the world, placed on the banks of River Yamuna. The Mughal ruler made Agra capital of his kingdom. With its steeped-into-past lifestyle and immense wealth of architecture, crafts and jewelry, Agra is among the most notable cities in the world. It is still associated with its Mughal period. Agra reached its zenith under the rule of Akbar, Jahangir & Shah Jahan. It was under the rule of Akbar that Agra became a leading center of art, architecture, trade and culture.
Jaipur : The capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur is not only the entrance to the state, it is also the most natural place to discover the diverse attractions of Rajasthan. For visitors who are not much familiar with its history, a little explanation is needed as it supports their understanding of one of the most fascinating cities of India. As a city, Jaipur is quite young, less than three centuries old. It was founded by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II of the Kachhawaha dynasty from the Amber. Amber, less than 10 kilometers away from Jaipur, was the former capital of the state. Now for all practical purposes, Amber is part of Jaipur as markets and residential areas have filled this distance. In order to welcome British prince, the city was painted in pink. Since then, this specialty has been kept intact and thus the city is called as ‘Pink City of Rajasthan’.
For those making their first trip to India, the Golden Triangle of India is by far the most popular destination. Most visitors are primarily attracted to Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan by the justifiable fame of their exotic buildings- Mughal palaces and mausoleums, Rajput forts, Jain temples and, in Delhi, the architectural splendours of the British Raj as well.
