India – Taj Mahal

The cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur are undoubtedly, the epitome of India’s cultural, historical and architectural heritage. They have all been the capitals of empires.

They are home to the highest concentration of UNESCO World Heritage sites, such as the Taj Mahal in Agra and the nearby Mughal-era ghost town of Fatehpur Sikri.

An ideal time-frame to enjoy this tour would be 5 nights and 6 days.

The Amazing Taj Mahal
Queen of The Fabulous Golden Triangle

The sheer size and beauty of the Taj Mahal, located in the city of Agra, stirs feelings of breathless wonder in all those who gaze upon it. Listed as the seventh wonder of the world, it is a title well deserved, as it attracts upwards of 8 million visitors annually. In 1983, the Taj Mahal was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The well-known Golden Triangle of India actually refers to an exciting tourist circuit that consists of the cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Together, they form the three most captivating and historical cities to visit on a memorable India tour program.

Delhi is the capital of India and the seat of the nation’s power. It is a city steeped in history, and possessed of stunning architectural landmarks that speak eloquently of a long and glorious, imperial past.

Agra is the city of the magnificent monument to eternal love – the Taj Mahal. Nearby, at a distance of approximately 36 kilometres on the road to Jaipur, lies another impressive monument from the Mughal era, the remarkably well-preserved ghost town of Fatehpur Sikri, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Jaipur is the gateway to the heart of Rajasthan, a rugged land dotted with an impressive array of ancient forts and palaces, that spawned the legendary Rajput warriors and their larger-than-life tales of glory and valour. The royal city of Jaipur has a long and illustrious history, and is fondly referred to as the “Pink City”.

Delhi, Humayun's Tomb

Delhi is cosmopolitan, contemporary, and the capital of a young and vibrant nation. It wears the mantle of a long and illustrious history lightly, having been the capital of empire for centuries from around 600 BC.

Jaipur, The City Palace

The capital city of Rajasthan was given a colour coat of pink a century ago in honour of a visiting Prince and ever since, it has retained this colour. Built by Maharaja Jai Singh, the notable astronomer, this city is 260 years old.

Taj Mahal, Agra

In 1526, Agra became the Mughal Empire's capital under Babur. It was only later that it was famously linked to the world’s most celebrated monument to love – the Taj Mahal, built by Emperor Shahjehan in 1630.
