The Golden Triangle

India - North India - Rajasthan
'

The Golden Triangle in North India symbolizes the three pinnacles of culture, heritage and metamorphosis - the capital city of New Delhi, the home of the iconic symbol of love - Agra and the capital of the regal land of desert - Jaipur. The perfect way for India to introduce herself to you in all her glory.

Start your discovery of the Indian Golden Triangle by visiting the heritage monuments from the Mughal Era scattered across these three cities. You can explore the multiple forts, palaces and structures built by different rulers in Delhi, Agra, Fatehpur Sikri and Jaipur.

On this Golden Triangle tour, you will get to explore the two contrasting personas of Delhi, Old and New Delhi, with their distinct characters. After Delhi, embark upon your journey to the “Pink City”, Jaipur. Have a day of discovery with a cycling tour and en route see the Palace of the Winds. Your final destination is to see the most romantic monument and symbol of eternal love, the biggest tribute made by a lover to his beloved: The Taj Mahal.
