The cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur are undoubtedly, the epitome of India’s cultural, historical and architectural heritage and have all been the capitals of the erstwhile princely states during their heyday. An ideal time-frame to enjoy this tour would be 5 nights and 6 days.
Delhi is modern, cosmopolitan, contemporary and also the capital of a young and vibrant nation. It wears the mantle of a long and illustrious history lightly, being the capital of empire for centuries from around 600 BC.
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.
In 1526 Mughal Emperor Babur made Agra the seat of his empire. But, it was only later that it became famously linked to the world’s most celebrated monument to love – the Taj Mahal, built by the Emperor Shahjehan in 1630.
