Golden Triangle Tour

local travel agency in India

The magical Golden Triangle in India is one of the country's most popular tourist circuits. It gives an opportunity to explore the remnants of the Mughal rule in India, and to explore the rich heritage behind the history. The Taj Mahal, built of white marble, is perhaps the greatest homage to love, while the Pink City of Jaipur is famous for its magnificent forts and palaces. It will take you to see the countryside aspect of Rajasthan with Alsisar, Roopangarh or Karauli.

 

Itinerary n.1 :

 

Day 1: Delhi - Shekhawati : Alsisar

Let's start your Rajasthan tour with The Shekhawati (or Garden of Shekha). This area is primarily associated with the rich and colourful frescoes that decorate the Haveli's, or mansions, of the local Marwari merchants. The frescoes adorn both the exterior and interior of the Haveli's and cover a diverse subject matter ranging from sacred to secular and folk to historical scenes. The villages of Alsisar, Mandawa, Dunlod, Nawalgarh and Fatehpur have some of the finest art work and collectively form an "open air art-gallery" that claims to have one of the largest concentrations of frescoes in the world. You will stay at Alsisar Mahal furnished and decorated in a style which recalls the grandeur of a bygone era; this is a heritage property which provides guests with a true Rajasthani experience.

Day 2: Alsisar – Jaipur

 Drive to the 'Pink City' of Jaipur. The tour will cover all the major highlights of this ancient city. The famous Hawa Mahal, known as the Palace of the Winds, is one of our first stops before we continue to the Astronomical Observatory constructed in 1726 and on to the City Palace, still home to the present Maharajah of Jaipur, where we'll view collections of costumes, carpets, paintings and the impressive armory.

Day 3: Jaipur 

You will visit the immense Amber Fort, located in the hills just a short drive out of Jaipur. Sampling all the most fascinating sights, our guided tour includes the sections reserved for the Maharajah's wives and concubines as well as the remarkable hall of mirrors, with tiny delicate convex mirrors embedded like a mosaic in the walls and ceilings. In the afternoon, enjoy the colorful bazaars.

Day 4: Jaipur - Karauli 

Drive down to Karauli, a 600-year-old city founded by Yaduvanshi Rajput kings - descendents of Lord Krishna. The main temple of Karauli is dedicated to Lord Krishna. You will stay for a night at a sprawling palace belonging to the family that once ruled Karauli. Bhanwar Vilas Palace was built as a royal residence in 1938 by Maharaja Ganesh Pal Deo Bahadur when he was the ruler of Karauli. The palace is designed in a colonial style and the interiors are furnished in Art Deco period furniture. It is a memorable experience being in a part of the country that sees very few tourists. Everything seems to have an air of authenticity about it as you join in with the local people as they go about their everyday life. Exploration of their organic farm and dairy is another highlight of this stay. The City Palace is a real highlight, with the fort and the palace being the official residence of the royal family of Karauli until 1938. This amazing structure features impressive archways and interconnecting rooms, many of them colorfully painted with frescoes. Many of the buildings in Karauli feature distinctive pale red sands.

Day 5: Karauli - Agra 

This morning you continue towards the ancient abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri, built in 1571, as Emperor Akbar's imperial capital. Although it was mysteriously abandoned just 15 years later it remains in a remarkable state of preservation, with numerous palaces, wide courtyards and beautiful carvings. Then you will leave for Agra, home to India's most famous site - the majestic Taj Mahal. Visit the Red Fort, Built by the famed Mughal emperor Akbar in 1565 AD, it is predominantly of red sandstone. Ensconced within is the picture perfect Pearl Mosque, which is a major tourist attraction. It lies on the bend of the river Yamuna, almost in the heart of the town. Akbar built it as his citadel over the years 1563-73 in the finest architectural style. It has imposing gates and walls of red sandstone and a moat. Later on, you will visit the Baby Taj or the Itmad-Ud-Daulah - The interiors of which are considered better than the Taj. It is one of the most beautiful Mughal tombs and was built by Nur Jahan, the Empress of Jahangir for her father in 1628.

Day 6: Agra - Delhi The Taj Mahal is closed on Friday

The moment you have been waiting for: the visit of the monument of love at the sunrise. Little needs to be said about this architectural wonder, which is always the soul raison-de-etre for every tourist's visit to Agra. Built by Shah Jahan, the Taj is a white marble memorial to his beautiful wife Mumtaz Mahal. This monument took 22 years to be completed and was designed, and planned by Persian architect Ustad Isa. Apart from its stunning design balance and perfect symmetry, the Taj is also noted particularly for its elegant domes, intricately carved screens and some of the best inlay work ever seen. Then drive to Delhi where you connect with your departure flight.
