Golden Triangle in India: A Must-Do Tour When in Delhi

by Ominder Rathor Executive

The Golden Triangle in India is a much publicised and highly popular route that tourists take for visiting some of the most important and historic landmarks of North India. The three points of this Golden Triangle includes Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. People who come to India from abroad and want to spend some time looking at the beauteous architecture that the country has to offer, this tour is a must. In fact, a tour of India is not complete in any sense of the word unless you have seen the Taj Mahal in Agra, the Red Fort in Delhi or the Hawa Mahal in Jaipur. On booking and availing this Golden Triangle tour package from a reputed online travel agent, you can be sure of seeing some of the most historic places in this part of the country. For instance, when you start in Delhi, the trip includes a visit to both the old and the new parts of the city. Don’t forget to see Jama Masjid, followed by a ride in one of the rickety rickshaw that Chandni Chowk has to offer. Next on the itinerary would be the Red Fort, India Gate, Rashtrapati Bhawan, Indira Gandhi Museum and a couple more of government buildings. The package is also sure to also include Rajghat, Humayun’s Tomb and a few shopping destinations. After all, which trip to India is complete without a visit to the local markets and taking a look at the trinket shops, buying a few shawls, or sampling the street food?

The next stop in a Golden Triangle tour package will be Agra, and you can either drive here or go by train; depends on your package. Did you know that even this city is home to a Red Fort? The Red Fort here is considerably smaller than the one on Delhi, but just as grand and impressive. And the major attraction, a UNESCO World Heritage site, The Taj Mahal, waits for you. Other points of tourist attraction include Itmad- Ud – Daula, which is also famed as the Baby Taj! The shopping opportunities in Agra are immense, starting from leather slippers to vibrantly colored chunris. The next stop, when touring the Golden Triangle in India, is Jaipur and as earlier, you can either be driven to your destination or travel by train. Either way, you are sure to reach within a few hours, at most. Here, the trip is all about the royal palaces and forts, including Amber Fort, Hawa Mahal, City Palace, Jantar Mantar Observatory and Albert Hall. Now do you see why a tour of the Golden Triangle in India is a must do when in the country. And the best part is that you can make the tour even if you only have a few days to spare.
