Golden Triangle Tour Of Rajasthan

It is one of the beaten and well-explored trails of the modern India. The Golden Triangle Rajasthan India itinerary covers Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. The tour covers eminent Indian architectural beauty, Rajasthan sights and natural beauties.
Start tour with exploration in Delhi. Visit ancient Mughal era structures made with red sandstone and marbles like Jama Masjid, Red Fort, Humayun Tomb, Lodi Garden and others.
Later, travel to Agra to enjoy Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Fatehpur Sikri and others. Later, move on to the Rajasthan desert region to enjoy the imperial land, Jaipur with its palaces, forts, Jantar Mantar, markets and much more.

What to experience in Golden Triangle?
So, what’s so special about three random destinations that make up an imaginary triangle? One could easily find four destinations on the map and create a square. Would that make the square more interesting? Well, not always.

In addition, Golden Triangle is not just three random destinations that are famous for the shape their locations make on the map. What makes the Golden Triangle grand is what’s inside those destinations.

Agra – The Epitome of Mughal, Marble and Marvel

From Delhi, this marble epic center is just a few hundred km away. You can easily reach the destination within a few hours. If you choose road transportation with car and driver in rajasthan, you would be in Agra in just four hours and if you were choosing the train, you would be spending just two hours.

Once you enter Agra, you would understand that the land has stuck in some Mughal Narnia situation with resounding structures, mausoleum and of course, the Taj Mahal.

The crown jewel of all Indian architecture is Taj Mahal, a refined marble mausoleum, famous for its carvings, structural beauty and use of semi-precious stones in construction. No part of the minaret-filled structure would leave you empty.

May it be the museum where you can find coins, ancient wares, paintings and so, or, the geometric garden famous for strolling; Taj Mahal is always as unique as a snowflake.

While Taj Mahal is the icon of Agra, it does not end Agra tour within its campus. Walk out Taj Mahal; enjoy shopping in the street shops for miniature Taj Mahal to take a part of Agra back with you.

Other top items to buy here are Persian rugs, carpets, wool articles, marble articles and others. Once you are done with Taj Mahal and filling your memory drive with pictures of the marble giant; it is time for other elite Mughal structures like Agra Fort, Baby Taj, Akbar’s Tomb and much more.

Another signature of Mughal Empire is the abandoned capital city, Fatehpur Sikhri. Built with every detail of luxury and architectural boasting, this capital city was abandoned within a decade or so, due to lack of water and advancing forces of hostile kingdoms.

That leaves us today with an empty city with lines of palaces, courtyards, mosques, victory towers and much more.

After Agra, the tour will take you towards the western end of the country, the desert region. Jaipur is specifically added to the list to display all the forms of landform in the country. Especially, Mother India is quite proud of her Thar Desert.

What is so special about a desert region? With just wild berries and spices as staple foods, the desert region has managed to create the richest cuisine with meat and spices, which has attracted many foodies to the land. The scarcity of water has done nothing to their culture. The land has managed to keep its culture as colorful as possible.

This has led Rajasthan to be an iconic shopping destination of the country. With sands and dust on the floor, the mighty Rajputs have managed to build several structures, monuments and much more. Of all the destinations of Rajasthan, what can beat the capital beauty, the Jaipur?

This is the city of forts. Starting from City Palace, you can make a heritage walking tour out of just palaces and forts. The rugged landscape of Aravalli hills with a slight splash of desert outlook, gives a grandeur look to this destination.

Immerse in with Jaipur to enjoy Amber fort, Nahargarh Fort, Shri Jagatshironmani temple, City Palace, Jantar Mantar, Hawa Mahal and much more. The most exclusive element of Jaipur is the stories. Each structure and even each room of the forts have an interesting reason or anecdote for you to learn.
