Package Overview

Important Note:

Taj Mahal is closed on Friday.

 

In this golden triangle tour to India, the focus is on Jaipur and Agra.

 

  • A quick outline of the tour:
  • Day one, early morning, you drive from Delhi to Jaipur.
  • First halt is at Amber Fort and then rest of Jaipur sightseeing including City Palace, Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar and Jal Mahal.
  • The day finishes with a visit to Jaipur's bazaars.
  • Day two, you drive to Agra from Jaipur via Fatehpur Sikri.
  • After Taj Mahal and Agra Fort visit, drive back to Delhi.

 

This tour has the potential to stagger you with an all sensory assault. The diversity and the contradictions of India will be in your face, but you shall be safely travelling through all this with our car and driver.

 

Delhi Jaipur highway is very good and lots of eateries on the way.

 

On your first halt is at Amber Fort, the construction of which started in 11th century and the successive rulers kept on enhancing it with palaces and courtyards. The 17 and the 18th centuries witnessed the influence of Mogul architectural style in the building work of the Fort.

Expect to see elephants and bicycles parked on the same side of the road.

 

18th century advent saw the city of Amer burgeoning beyond its capacity and that then ruler Jai Singh commissioned a Bengali architect to design a new city. Thus Jaipur was formed, neatly laid out on and nine block grid pattern governed by the dictates of Vaastu Shashtra, the Indian feng shui.

 

The wide avenues lined with beautiful buildings of the new city found much appreciation with the visiting European travellers. The bazaars of Jaipur have always been considered the most vibrant in Asia. You will see all of this including City Palace and the museum inside it.

Day two, you move on to Agra after breakfast. En route is the magnificent red stone city of Fatehpur Sikri, which houses the shrine of Sufi mystic Salim Chishty. The mighty Akbar had built this city as a gratifying tribute to the Saint, for he had predicted that Akbar will become a father. This will be the first planned city of the Mogul Empire. From here Akbar had marched out and conquered Gujarat. On his return, he renamed it Fatehpur Sikri (city of victory). However, a few years later, it was abandoned apparently due to lack of water.

 

For Taj Mahal in Agra, there is nothing much to say except that when you get to visit it, you shall be speechless. There is the opportunity for you to enjoy your Taj Mahal moments at the time of sunset, either from within the precincts of Taj Mahal or from Mehtab Bagh, which is across the river.

 

Your Agra visit includes the Agra Fort as well. Agra fort was built by Akbar to have a grand fortress befitting the might and dignity of the Mogul Empire. Agra was chosen as it was considered to be the centre of India. Agra Fort is a Fort built to defend.

 

Akbar became the Emperor at the tender age of 13, when his father Humayun died. At his peak, his empire stretched from Bengal to Afghanistan and Kashmir as well as, to the Deccan the South.

 

On your drive back to Delhi expect to see almost all forms of transportation known to mankind since, what, eternity!

Itinerary

 

Day 1


Jaipur

 

Delhi Jaipur morning drive


Early morning, 6 AM recommended, leave Delhi for Jaipur. As you will drive out of Delhi, you shall go past Gurgaon, the modern commercial IT hub. Your only chance, perhaps to have a glimpse of modern India with swanky buildings.

 

It is about 275 km, approximately 5 to 6 hours drive on very good dual carriage road. There are many eateries on the way, where you can have your breakfast. A popular eatery is the Midway, operated under the aegis the Rajasthan tourism Department.

 

Half way later, you shall notice the changing landscape, with green fields giving way to more sandy areas. The first hills of the Aravalli range will show their face near about the half way mark. Within these sales is nestled the Neemrana fort. Just for your information as visit to Neemrana fort is not part of your itinerary.


Before you reach Jaipur, the city of Amer shows up where Amber Fort is situated.

 

Jaipur sightseeing coming straight from Delhi


Amber Fort is your first halt from where you're sightseeing of Jaipur starts. Our Jaipur guide shall meet you here.

 

This Fort represents a 1000 years of Kuchwaha Rajputs history. The Fort complex is dotted with a plethora of courtyards, palaces, ruins and temples. You can allow yourself to be carried up the steep walk to the Fort's gate by an elephant. An interesting area is the small temple dedicated to the patron goddess of the ruling family. Till 1980, since many centuries, a goat was daily sacrificed here. While Amber Fort, showcases both the Rajputs pride and their architectural style, in the later years construction and renovation, the Mogul influence is visible. After Amber Fort, you drive to Jaipur city.


On the way a small stop on the roadside to admire and photograph Jal Mahal, the water Palace.

 

Continuing further, another stop by the roadside in front of Hawa Mahal. Hawa Mahal's facade is everything and like Agra and Taj Mahal are synonymous with each other, similarly Hawa Mahal and Jaipur are synonymous with each other. Royal ladies used to watch the street life discreetly, from behind a marble screen having holes.


Lunch.

 

After lunch, visit City Palace. Jaipur was conceived as a city of nine blocks. Two of these blocks have been used for City Palace. Only a small portion of City Palace is open for the tourist, including the Museum. Rest of it is the private residence of the current maharaja. A mixture of Rajasthani and Mogul architectural styles, this sprawling complex has many courtyards, gardens and buildings. The museum has a rare manuscripts, costumes, weapons and historical artefacts.


After City Palace, visit Jantar Mantar-the astronomical Observatory. Crazy looking structures will greet you here, but they are the instruments for celestial movements observation.


After Jantar Mantar, visit to the Jaipur market for you to find shopping bargains.

 

Hotel check-in and rest of the evening free.

 

Day 2


Last Day of Tour

This is your last day of your tour.

 

 

Jaipur to Agra drive


After an early morning breakfast, leave for Agra, the city of Taj Mahal. It is about 5 to 6 hours drive, most of which is through rural areas.

 

The highlight of this drive is that you will stop at Fatehpur Sikri, the red stone "City of victory". Within the fort is the shrine of Salim Chishty, the Sufi mystic, in whose honour the city was built by a delighted Akbar when the mystic's prediction that Akbar will have an heir came true. It has a beautiful mosque and three separate Palaces for each of his favourite wives-a Muslim, a Christian and a Hindu. After Fatehpur Sikri, you drive on to Agra. Our Agra guide shall meet you here.

 

Agra sightseeing


After lunch, visit Agra Fort. Agra fort was built by Akbar as he considered Agra to be the right location to administer the large landmass of India that was under his control. This impressive red stone fort built to showcase the might of Mogul empire was also where Shah Jahan, Akbar's grandson was imprisoned by his own son Aurangzeb. It is here that Shah Jahan breathed his last, gazing at Taj Mahal.

 

Finally you reach Taj Mahal, after Agra Fort.

 

This world's most stunning monument has many tales associated with it. Its beauty is staggering, visiting and experiencing it still surpassing the visual abuse of so many photographs heaped onto it. The romance of Taj Mahal is unique, eternal and lingers on. To many it is intriguing that one of the most wealthiest and powerful emperors of his time, Shah Jahan, who had a harem full of wives and concubines, was loyally obsessed with only one wife Mumtaz Mahal.


Mumtaz Mahal was betrothed to Shah Jahan, when both were in their teens. Mumtaz Mahal was his confidant, his friend, his advisor and was actively involved in the administration of the empire. Publicly, Shah Jahan was guarded so as the involvement of Mumtaz Mahal and his dependency on her advice was not revealed to the masses. 


As you visit will coincide with the possibility of sunset, it is up to you to decide whether you want to do that or reach Delhi earlier.

 

Agra Delhi drive.


Leave for Delhi. It is about 220 km or about 4 to 5 hours of drive. Road condition is good. There are plenty of eateries on the highway. Even McDonald's.
