Golden Triangle Tour (Delhi – Agra – Jaipur), with the historically important destinations like Ajanta and Ellora, offers you a unique opportunity to have a deeper insight into the rich cultural heritage of India. Starting with the capital, Delhi is one such city that is destroyed and reconstructed seven times by different rulers. This way, it inherits the patterns and styles of all those dynasties in its architecture, living, food/cuisine and culture. Secondly, Jaipur – the Pink City of Rajasthan – still retains the age old glory of the Rajput kings. If you wish to explore majestic forts and palaces, temples and unique monuments, and see a typical fusion of history, religion, music, dance, arts and crafts – Jaipur is incomparable. Apart from that, Agra is also favourite among tourists because of the wonder monument – the Taj Mahal, the symbol of love. Moreover it also has some of the excellent examples of the Mughal architecture.

On the other hand, the romantic city of Udaipur (Rajasthan), the metropolitan city Mumbai (famous for temples, cathedrals, mosques & pleasant coastline), and the Ajanta – Ellora caves are also some important landmarks in the India tourist map.
