					The Body and Soul of a Golden Triangle tour



A Golden Triangle Tour is incomplete without a visit to the Taj Mahal, a few prominent forts
and palaces in Rajatshan and the Red Fort, India Gate and Qutub Minar in Delhi and that’s
what you’ve been told. But fact is that a Golden Triangle tour is much more than that. Of
course, for time-pressed travelers the above-mentioned sights summarise the charm and
charisma of a Golden Triangle Tour but if time’s on your side, then it’s essential to add a lot
more body and soul to your tour and here are a few sights that will help you do just that.

Body and soul

The city of Delhi has been in the post light for eons. As the capital of successful dynasties,
the city stores visual delights in every nook and cranny. So if you look beyond the obvious
itinerary and amble along the lanes of Chandni Chowk, one of India’s oldest whole-sale
shopping bazaars, you will discover the spirit of Old Delhi. A rickshaw ride through the
bustling alleys of this bazaar can be the highlight of your trip. What’s a must of the fairer
gender is a halt at Dariba Kalan- Delhi most renowned and oldest gold market. Find peace
by spending an hour or two at the Raj Ghat- Mahatma Gandhi’s memorial. The ‘sound and
light’ show at the old Fort lawns and a trip to Akshar Dham should give you a sense of
having ‘been there and done that’ or put simply of having seen Delhi’s heart and soul.

Sand and soul

While each city and town in the desert state of Rajasthan boasts of historical monuments
and sights what’s truly soulful about a trip to this state is experiencing the sand dunes. One
would think that a desert would be fleshed with dunes, but sand dunes in Rajasthan are as
scarce a commodity as snakes in Ireland and that’s what adds to the thrill of experiencing
them. 42 kilometers from Jaisalmer is a spot famous of the dune experience and camel
safaris. What’s mesmerising about the dunes is the show they put up when the desert winds
sculpt them into different mounds and patterns. Not only do the dunes change shapes but
the sands get coloured differently as the sun passes long. The panoramic montage of
patterns and colours are bound to be etched in your memory for life so much so that you’ll
find solace in recollecting your trip to the golden sand dunes.

Love and soul

While Agra and the Taj Mahal are almost synonyms, there is more to this city in terms of
experiencing its spirit. What’s highly recommended is spending an evening on the lush,
manicured lawns of Sikandra, the spot where Akbar’s body was laid to rest. Although
spending an evening at a mausoleum may not be your idea of fun, the visit will definitely be
a soul-searching one.

Holidays are as much about fun and adventure as they are about rejuvenation and
introspection and a Golden Triangle Tour promises you as many soul-stirring moments as
you desire.
