Golden Triangle Tour Packages
The Golden Triangle is the most popular tourist route in India, and for very good reason. Delhi, Jaipur and Agra are three cities that capture your imagination and take you into the fascinating, decadent and passionate world of the Mughals and maharajas. What they left behind is some of the world’s best architecture, from the Qutab Minar in Delhi to the Amber Fort in Jaipur and of course the Taj Mahal in Agra. Even if you have only five days, here’s how you can see the highlights of the Golden Triangle Tour Packages.
Most Golden Triangle Tour Packages India start in Delhi, and rightly so; the capital city is truly spectacular. If you only have a couple of days in Delhi, then you really don’t have time to spare, so head straight to Chandni Chowk. The centre of Old Delhi, this market was created by Shah Jahan in 1650 A.D., and is still one of the most vibrant parts of the city. The narrow alleyways are filled with stalls selling spices of every scent, cloth, electronics as well as a lane that is famous for selling any kind of parantha you desire. Chandni Chowk is an experience that makes you feel truly alive!
Stop for lunch at Karim’s, famous for its mouth-watering kebabs, and then head to the splendid Red Fort or Lal Qila. Built on the banks of the Yamuna, this incredible example of Mughal architecture has a wall that extends over 2 kilometres. The palace walls and public halls were once adorned with precious stones of every hue. Close your eyes and imagine how these walls once glistened.
Nearby is the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India that can hold up to 25,000 people! Whilst its size alone is massive, the beautiful blend of intricately carved white marble and red sandstone makes this site just incredible. Wander through the courtyard and catch a glimpse of the Red Fort in the distance. Then walk up the narrow spiral staircase of the minaret to get the best view of Old Delhi.
If you still have some time left, do visit Raj Ghat, the cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi. In the evening, head back to Red Fort to see the popular Sound and Light Show.
The next day, start early and head to Mehrauli, home to the Qutab Minar complex. This UNESCO World Heritage site is amazing. The way the minar reaches up towards the sky almost defies logic. Over 72 metres high, construction on this structure commenced in 1193 A.D. In the same complex, you can also see some Mughal tombs, and an iron pillar that dates back over 2,000 years. The pillar continues to mystify scientists who marvel at how it was cast to perfection.
Head back into Delhi for a short break and picnic at Lodhi Gardens. From there, visit Humayun’s Tomb, one of the most spectacular monuments in Delhi. Set amongst huge gardens, and with intricate carvings of stars, this is a site not to be missed.
In the evening, stop at India Gate just as night falls to see it lit up in all its glory. You can also snack on chaat and enjoy the carnival atmosphere here.
