Visit The Fascinating Indian Cities Delhi, Agra and Jaipur with
Golden Triangle Tours
For tourists who for some reason cannot choose to visit all of India, be it because of
financial or time constraints, there is the option of visiting the three most fantastic cities
in India: Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. This trip of cities is lovingly referred to as the ‘golden
triangle’ of India and while there are many other states and cities in the country, each
with its unique offerings that you must experience fully, these three cities are like a
condensed, package tour of the country. By visiting these three cities you get a chance to
observe the rich culture and history of the country, witness the influence of three of the
greatest rulers and empires the country has ever known (the Mughals, the Rajputs and of
course, the British Imperialists) and see a dazzling collection of monuments and spots.
Golden Triangle Tours begin with the capital city of Delhi, which is the political,
cultural, social and economic heart of the country. Delhi is the city where the influence of
the Mughal rulers and the British Raj is observable in equal parts in every aspect of life.
The monuments that are a must-visit in Delhi are Humayun’s Tomb, Safdarjung’s Tomb,
Hauz Khas Fort, Red Fort, Qutub Minar, India Gate and Jamali-Kamali. There are many
temples and places of worship in the city as well that one can visit, such as the Bahaii
Temple, the Iskon Temple, the various temples of Chattarpur, the Jama Masjid and the
Bangla Sahib. Apart from these sightseeing spots, the cuisine is a big attraction. One can
visit paranthe wali gali in the Old Delhi area to try some yummy paranthas or even the
various restaurants offering mouthwatering Mughal cuisine. One can also find restaurants
offering a variety of cuisines from other parts of the world in Delhi, such as Turkish food,
Lebanese food, Chinese food, South Indian food, Italian food and Mexican food. Eating
and sightseeing aside, there are several shows, theatre performances, events, fests and
cultural events and exhibitions that are organized in Delhi all the time.
The next stop on the Golden Triangle Tours is the city of Agra. This city is famous all
around the world because it is home to the Taj Mahal, the white marble structure that
Emperor Shah Jahan built in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. The Taj Mahal is an
international symbol of love and passion and this city is host to thousands of visitors each
month from all around the world. Apart from this, one can also visit the Agra Fort and
Fatehpur Sikri which are also internationally recognized places.
Last but not the least, is the Pink City, the capital of Rajsthan: the city of Jaipur. Jaipur is
a city full of monuments, palaces, ruins, forts and lakes. Visiting Jaipur is like stepping
into the past, because even though it is one of the most modern cities in the country, it has
preserved its rich cultural heritage so impeccably that the past has seamlessly merged
with the present and future here. Beautiful handicrafts, leather goods and jewelry have
made Jaipur popular amongst tourists from all over the world, while it is also a must to
try out the amazing, spicy cuisine of the region. Famous places to visit are the Hawa
Mahal, Amber Fort, City Palace and Jantar Mantar.
