DAY 01: ARRIVAL IN DELHI
Taj Mahal Tour Guide’s representative will receive you at the Delhi airport and facilitate your stay at a pre-booked 5 star hotel in Delhi through an air conditioned vehicle. Check In at the hotel and utilise the remaining time in leisure activities near your stay or relaxing. There are many Hotels to choose from in New Delhi. Being the National capital of India, it has decent presence of hospitality providers. Le Meridian is a favourite amongst luxury travellers; others like Roseate House, The Lalit, Imperial, Oberoi, ITC Maurya, Taj Palace etc. are frequented too. Your choice at one of the above hotels or others apart from these will help our travel consultants at Taj Mahal Tour Guide, book these for you and make all arrangements prior to your arrival for the 5 nights 6 days Golden Triangle Tour Package of India.
DAY 02: DELHI SIGHTSEEING
Our English speaking travel escort will take you to a combined tour of the Old and the New parts of the Delhi city on the first day of the 5 nights 6 days Golden triangle tour of India.
We start off with visit to the Red fort- the last stronghold and the final headquarters of the Mughal rule in India, followed by important monuments from the erstwhile English rule that serve as important offices in the modern day Indian governmental structure like the Rashtrapati Bhawan, Parliament house, Secretariat building, Raisina Hilla, India Gate – which is a war memorial build to commemorate the fallen Indian soldiers from the first world war. Later in the first leg of the golden triangle tour, we visit the Raj Ghat (resembling peace and the cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi) and Shanti Van (cremation site of Jawahar Lal Nehru, India’s first prime minister).
Old Delhi, also known as the walled city of Shahjahanabad has gems like the Chandni Chowk (Moonlit Square) for souvenir and snacking, Kharo bowli and Sadar bazar for Dry fruits and spice shopping, Gurudwara Sheesh Ganj- a holy place of Sikhs, Swami Narayan temple – a holy place for Hindus and the Jama Masjid- which also serves as a landmark of the Old Delhi, situated opposite to the Red fort in the Old Delhi area. After a day of sight seeing, you retire for the night after the dinner at the hotel.
DAY 03: DELHI - AGRA
We begin the second day of the golden triangle tour with breakfast at the hotel, post which we start off for the Agra city, situated approximately 240 kms, from Delhi. On arrival, check-in at a pre booked hotel. Just like New Delhi, Agra is no less when it comes to satiating the luxury lifestyle and hunger for hospitality of a seasoned traveller. The glamour and grandeur of the erst-while Mughal capital city, is best reflected in the hotels; starting from ITC Mughal, Man Singh Hotel, Radisson Blue, Courtyard by Marriot, Trident Agra, Jaypee Palace Hotel and the legendary Oberoi Amar Vilas- the city has every reason to boast high on its luxury quotient.
In the leg two of the 5 nights 6 days Golden triangle Tour of India, we start off with visiting the Red Fort of Agra, that served as the headquarters of the Mughal empire for 4 generations. Our guide will tell you all about the history, stories, architectures, view-points that capture the best of your travel moments to events, to the traditions, art forms and practices that have long been carried forward since then. At the Mussaman Burj tower inside the fort, where Shah Jahan spend the last days of his life, the view of the Taj Mahal lying on the same side of the River Yamuna, is beautiful. We now move to another historical monument, tomb of the Itmad-ud-Daula (also, known as the Baby Taj), which inspired the structure of the Taj Mahal in many aspects. From the Square symmetry, to the garden on all sides, to the large gates with artistic renderings at the entrance, and vicinity to river Yamuna- all add to the core inspiration behind building of the Taj Mahal. The evening of this day’s golden triangle tour of India can either be spent gazing the Taj Mahal from the Mehtbah Bagh (Moonlit gardens) from the other end of the Taj Mahal, across the river Yamuna.
One of the specialities we have for our travellers, who give us the chance to serve them during any of the Golden Triangle Tours are the visits to the In-laid marble workshops and showrooms (pachekari– as it is known as in the local dialect) where they can witness how the building blocks of the Taj Mahal are refined, embedded with precious and semi-precious stones and given final touches. With beautiful designs on display, it is one of the best things to be on anyone’s itinerary travelling to Agra. Another good place to shop for ethnic Indian stuff are the Zardozi workshop and showrooms of Agra; Kinari Bazar, Subhash Bazar, Sadar Bazar, Raja ki Mandi etc. are other places to explore for authentic Indian stuff. Please Note: Taj Mahal remain Closed on every Friday.
DAY 04: AGRA SIGHTSEEING – JAIPUR
After breakfast at the hotel, we travel to the world renowned monument of love- the Taj Mahal. Built by Mughal ruler, Shahjahan in 1630 – it contains the mortal remains of Mumtaz Mahal and Shahjahan himself. The most cliched, yet the most beautiful and enchanting stop of the 5 night 6 days Golden triangle Tour of India, from Taj Mahal Tour Guide is bound the leave you mesmerized. When the early saffron rays of the sun hit the white heavenly marble of the monument- the magical aura of the moment will suck you in for a blissful & memorable ride of a lifetime. The tour guide will let you know the facts, history, stories, events, structure, Instagram-happy spots along with everything that makes the Taj Mahal experience a happy one for you.
While, leaving for Jaipur, we visit Fatehpur sikri, a city that was made the capital of the Mughal empire by Emperor Akbar for a short period of time- but had to abandon due to lack of water. Jama Masjid, tomb of Salim Chisti, Panch Mahal, Jodha Bai’s palace are other structures to explore.
The last leg of the 5 nights 6 days Golden Triangle Tour takes us to the regal city of Jovial Jaipur, the present day capital of the state of Rajasthan.
