Golden Triangle Tour of India is a luxurious tour package around the central-west region of India. The eight days tour comprises an exclusive package offered by Cordial Trek with visits to major places of India. It includes a comprehensive tour inside the capital city of Delhi & historic cities of Agra and Jaipur.

 

The Golden Triangle

The Golden Triangle of India is a tourist circuit that connects the national capital New Delhi with Agra and Jaipur. Moreover, the Golden Triangle is so named because of the triangular shape formed by their locations on a map. The trips usually start in Delhi and move south to the site of the Taj Mahal at Agra (in Uttar Pradesh state), then west, to Jaipur (in the desert landscapes of Rajasthan state). Additionally, it is normally possible to do the trip by road, train or plane. The Golden Triangle is now a well-traveled route, providing a good spectrum of the country’s different landscapes. The circuit is about 720 km by road. Each leg is about 4 to 6 hours of driving.

 

Places to visit in the capital

To begin with, the trip takes you to visit Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Chandni Chowk, Humayun’s Tomb, Qutub Minar, Lotus Temple and India Gate in the capital.

 

Places to visit in Agra

Furthermore, you will be taken on a memorable trip to the historic city of Agra, the home of Taj Mahal. Taj Mahal is a mausoleum commissioned in 1631 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to house the tomb of his favorite wife Mumtaz Mahal. Here you will also explore the historic Agra Fort, the former residence of Mughal emperors.

 

Places to visit in Jaipur, Rajasthan

Likewise, you will visit City Palace, Jantar-Mantar (Observatory), Hawa Mahal, Albert Hall Museum, Amer Fort and Jal Mahal in the city of Jaipur.

 

Note: The tour begins from Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi. We may therefore help to book the international flight tickets for KTM-Delhi-KTM as well.

Day 5 : Sightseeing tour in Jaipur

Day five of your tour begins with a visit to Amer Fort. Here you will experience the Jeep Ride / Elephant Ride from the old town to reach the Courtyard of Amer Fort. The route was used by the king’s army in the old days. The fort, also the former capital of the Kachhwahas, stands atop a range of craggy hills. The fort is remarkable as much for the majestic grandeur of its surroundings as for its sturdy battlements and beautiful palaces. It is a fine blend of Hindu and Muslim architecture.

 

The next stop of your tour in Jaipur will be Jal Mahal, a small palace set in the middle of Man Sagar Lake. The palace, built in red sandstone, is a five-storied building, of which four floors remain underwater when the lake is full and the top floor is exposed. Your next visit will be the City Palace, a blend of Rajput and Mughal architecture that houses a seven storeyed Chandra Mahal in the center with a fine view of the gardens and the city. It now houses the Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum and also continues to be the home of the Jaipur Royal Family.

 

The next stop in Jaipur will be Jantar Mantar, an observatory built in the 18th century by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II with huge masonry instruments to study the movement of constellations and stars in the sky. Enormous sun-dial still provides accurate time, which is subject to daily corrections.

 

HawaMahal will be your next stop. It was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh and is the most recognizable monument of Jaipur. Its five-floor exterior is akin to a honeycomb with its 953 small windows called Jharokhas decorated with intricate latticework. The original intent of the lattice design was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life and festivals celebrated in the street below without being seen. This architectural feature also allowed cool air from the Venturi effect to pass through, thus making the whole area more pleasant during the high temperatures in summer.

 

The final stop of your tour in Jaipur will be the Albert Hall Museum situated in the Ram Niwas Garden. This graceful building was founded in 1876 by Prince Albert (also known as Albert Hall). The museum has a rich collection of artifacts including paintings, jewelry, carpets, ivory, stone, metal sculptures, and works in crystal. A hotel in Jaipur will be your halt for the night.

It is the tallest brick minaret in the world and an incredible example of early Indo–Islamic architecture. It was built in the late 12th to early 13th century, but the reason remains a mystery. Some believe that it was made to signify victory and the beginning of Muslim rule in India, while others say it was used to call the faithful to prayer.

 

The next stop of your tour will be Humayun’s Tomb. It was built in 1570 and houses the body of the second Mughal emperor, Humayun. The tomb was commissioned by Humayun’s first wife and chief consort, Empress Bega Begum under her patronage in 1558, and designed by Mirak Mirza Ghiyas and his son, Sayyid Muhammad with Persian architects chosen by her.

 

Lotus Temple will then be your third stop for the day. The Baha’i Temple is commonly referred to as the Lotus Temple for it being shaped like a lotus flower. It’s particularly pretty at night when it’s attractively lit up. Made out of white marble, the temple belongs to the Baha’i Faith, which proclaims the unity of all people and religions. (Temple remains closed on Every Monday)

 

Your next stop will be at India Gate. The towering archway at the center of New Delhi is a war memorial built in memory of the Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the British Army in World War I. At night it glows warmly under floodlights, and the gardens that line its boulevard are a popular place to enjoy a warm summer evening.

 

Laxmi Narayan Temple will then be your final stop for the day. Built-in 1938 by the Industrialist G.D. Birla, it is one of the major temples in Delhi and is located near Connaught Place. The temple is dedicated to Goddess Laxmi and her consort Narayana.
