Itinerary Golden Triangle Delhi – Agra – Jaipur – Delhi

Day 1: Delhi – Agra (Drive: 4 hrs approx)


  • Pick up from your place of stay in Delhi
  • Drive to Agra
  • Check into the hotel (Check time at 1400 hrs)
  • Visit Taj Mahal & Agra fort
  • Overnight at the hotel

In the morning, pick up from your place of stay in Delhi & drive to Agra (Approx 4 hrs drive). Upon arrival in Agra check-in to hotel.

Later in the afternoon, proceed to visit magnificent monument to love – Taj Mahal,  built  by an emperor  in memory of his beloved     queen. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1631, and is believed to have taken 22 years to complete, with over 20,000 craftsmen working around the clock.   The design and construction is said to be that of the legendary architect, Ustad Ahamad Lahori. Legend has it that once construction was completed,   Shah  Jehan  had  Lahori’s  hands  cut  off,  and blinded, so he would never be able to duplicate the structure. What makes the Taj Mahal unique is its perfect proportions, distinct femininity, medium of construction and ornamentation. Its marble exterior reflects rose and golden tints at sunrise and sunset, while it is dazzling white during the day. It is impossible to visualize the Taj Mahal in any surrounding others than its paradoxical garden. Paradise, in Islam, is visualized as lush garden where running streams flow. When the Mughals brought this concept to India they elevated it to the heights of incomparable history.

(Note: Taj Mahal remains closed on Friday)

Later  visit  the  impressive  Agra  Fort,  where  you  are  taken through the chambers of this royal residence. As you drive through the city, witness the local life and bazaars (markets) and the hustle bustle of everyday India.

Agra Fort is a UNESCO World Heritage site located in Agra, India. The fort is also known as Lal Qila, Fort Rouge and Red Fort of Agra. It is about 2.5 km northwest  of its much more famous sister monument, the Taj Mahal. The fort can be more accurately  described  as a walled  palatial city.  It is the most important  fort  in India.  The great  Mughals  Babur,  Humayun, Akbar, Jehangir, Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb lived here, and

the country was governed from here. It contained the largest state treasury and mint. It was visited by foreign ambassadors, travellers and the highest dignitaries who participated in the making of history in India.

Overnight at the hotel

Day 2: Agra – Jaipur (Drive: 6 hrs approx.)


  • Breakfast at the hotel
  • Drive to Jaipur en route visiting Fatehpur Sikri
  • Transfer to hotel
  • Overnight at the hotel

After buffet breakfast drive to Jaipur en route visiting Fatehpur Sikri.

Fatehpur Sikri – The imperial city of the Mughal dynasty between  1571 and 1584,  Fatehpur  Sikri was built by Mughal Emperor Akbar. The architectural grandeur of this deserted city cannot be   described   in   words   and   one   can   only experience the aura of its magnificent edifices by seeing  them.  Fatehpur  Sikri  is the most  popular day excursion from Agra, the city of Taj and capital of invincible Mughals for a long time.

Today,  as one enters  Sikri from the Agra  Gate, one of the nine gateways on the way to the palace complex,   Diwan-I-Aam,   or   the   hall of   public audience  appears  first.  It  is  a  huge  rectangular walled-in courtyard where petitions were heard, proclamations made, ambassadors received and entertainment programmes held. Ponder the mysterious desertion of this capital city that was dramatically abandoned a few years after it was built due to lack of water. It was a veritable fairy tale city and its ‘ruins’ are still in a pristine condition. It is not hard to imagine what the court life must have been like in the days of its grandeur.

Later on drive to Jaipur, arrive and check in to the hotel.

Overnight at the hotel.

Day 3: In Jaipur


  • Breakfast at the hotel
  • Morning Excursion to Amber Fort

After   breakfast,   proceed  for  a  half  day  excursion  to inspiring Amber Fort, 11 Kms form Jaipur.  Amber Fort is a  marvellous example   of  Rajput   architecture   with  its terraces and ramparts reflected in the Maota Lake below. Go up the fort in a jeep. The interiors of the fort has various royal halls decorated with intricate ivory, mirror and glass work  complemented  by  exquisite  wall  paintings.  As  you move between the rooms of this magnificent structure feel the  history  and  visualise  the  pomp  and  grandeur  of  a kingdom never conquered.

(Elephant rides at Amber Fort cannot be guaranteed in advance. This is due to the fact that the number of Elephants and the trips each Elephant can take is limited. All guests have to reach the Amber Fort in time and stand in line to wait their turn to climb the Elephant. These lines could sometimes be very long and some guests have had to be turned back).

Afternoon city tour, this time on a city tour. You will visit the City  Palace  Museum  where  you  can  see  an  imposing blend   of traditional   Rajasthani   and   Mughal   Art.   The museum is resplendent with its collection of robes of royal princes, carpets, an armoury of old weapons, miniature paintings portraying court scenes, battle scenes and processions, Also visit the awe inspiring Jantar Mantar (an accurate observatory built in 1726 AD). Also included is a photo visit at the Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds) – a five storied wonder with a spectacular pyramidal facade and overhanging windows with latticed screens, domes and spires.

Located  in the heart  of the walled city,  The City Palace Complex gives you an idea about the farsightedness of the founder of Jaipur Sawai Jai Singh. He left behind a legacy of some of the most imposing and magnificent architecture, art and craft structure in the city. Sawai Jai Singh built its many buildings but some of some of the structures were also built by later rulers and some of them are even dated in the in the twentieth century too. The palace is a blend of Mughal and Rajasthani architecture and the royal family still lives in a part of the palace.

On entering the complex and before the palace proper lies the Mubarak Mahal, the palace of welcome or reception.

Sawai Madho Singh built the palace in the nineteenth century. It was used as a reception centre for the visiting personage. The building now forms the Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II Museum and on display here are a wide array of royal costumes, some very exquisite and precious Pashmina (Kashmiri) Shawls, Benaras silk saris, Sanganeri prints and folk embroidery. An unusual display is that of voluminous clothes worn by Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh I (ruled 1750-68).

The Hawa Mahal (The Palace of winds),  which adjoins the famous City Palace wall, was built in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh and has now become one of the major landmarks of Jaipur. The palace is shaped like a pyramid and is a five-storied building, with number of small windows and screens, with arched roofs.
