Golden Triangle With Tiger Safari

Duration : 8 Days Tour
Destination : Delhi - Agra - Fatehpur Sikri - Ranthambore - Jaipur - Delhi

Humayun Tomb - DelhiDelhi, Agra and Jaipur - they represent and unravel the mystique that is India. New Delhi, the elegant capital with its wide roads, sprawling gardens and stately buildings, stands on the site of seven historical cities built by the visionary rulers through the centuries. Agra, the capital of the glorious Mughal emperors, harbors the incomparable Taj Mahal, the exquisite marble monuments that attract millions of visitors every year. Jaipur is the enigmatic pink city of the Maharajas, the city of pomp and splendor, of colour and festivity, of a rich and regal past that continues into the present.

This is the golden triangle - a visit to which is essential to get a glimpse of India's rich past. Though the cities are a very different in character from each other, their histories have been interconnected, bringing about a similarity in culture, tradition and lifestyle.

Under the grand Mughals, the three cities were linked through political alliances and cultural interchange. Hindu and Muslim traditions influenced architecture, arts and crafts and the result was a unique synthesis, which was reflected, in the literary life and performing arts of the cities.

Day 02 In Delhi
After a relaxed breakfast, proceed for a full day guided city tour of New Delhi and Old Delhi

Delhi - the capital of India, is a fascinating city with complexities and contradictions, beauty and dynamism, where the past co-exists with the present. Many dynasties ruled from here and the city is rich in the architecture of its monuments. Delhi is not only the present metropolis of India but also a Necropolis. Because of its location, being on the banks of the river Yamuna, many cities have risen and fallen over the last five millenniums.

Morning : Sightseeing tour of Old Delhi. Visit the historic Red Fort - Shah Jehan's elegant citadel in red sandstone, which was built as an octagon measuring 900m by 550m and surrounded by a 9-meter deep moat, which was at its inception fed by the waters of the Yamuna River. The fort is entered from the Lahori Gate and leads to a roofed passage called Chatta Chowk. The Naqqar Khana (drum house) at the end of this passage marks the entrance to the royal enclosure. A spacious lawn leads to the Diwan-i-Am - the pillared Hall of Public Audience, Diwan-i-Khas - the Hall of Private Audience where the emperor met select visitors and the Pearl Mosque built by Shah Jahan's son, Aurangazeb, the last of the "Great Mughals". Very near the Fort is the Jama Masjid (Friday Mosque), India's largest mosque, also built by Shah Jahan. Take an interesting rickshaw ride through the famous bazaars of Chandni Chowk, which is adjacent to both the Fort and the Mosque. Also visit Raj Ghat - the memorial to Mahatma Gandhi.

Taj Mahal - AgraAfternoon : Sightseeing tour of New Delhi. Visit the Qutab Minar, a Tower of Victory which was built in the 12th century by Qutbuddin Aibak. Within its spacious courtyard stands the Iron Pillar, which dates back to the 4th century AD and bears a Sanskrit inscription in the Gupta style. The pillar has puzzled scientists, as its iron has not rusted in all these centuries. The tomb of Humayun - the magnificent structure in red sandstone and white marble is one of the finest examples of the garden tomb, and a precursor to the Taj Mahal. Its proportionate spaces, double dome and refined elegance are characteristic of Mughal architecture. Also visit India Gate, the memorial of the First World War and the road that leads from there to Rashtrapathi Bhawan - the residence of the President of India which is flanked by the houses of Parliament and the Government Secretariat buildings.
