Going on a Delhi-Agra-Jaipur Golden Triangle Tour opens your eyes to different experiences and your taste buds to a number of spicy cuisines which are simply tantalizing. Below are our picks of the best sites and places for you to visit on your Golden Triangle India tour:

a) Delhi: Tourists will enjoy spending time in this city simply because there are so many places to see and so many things to experience. If you’re looking for traditional arts, crafts and wares, then take a ride to Dilli Haat where more than 200 stalls await to mesmerize you with the best of India’s crafts. Travel back in time by visiting some of India’s best loved monuments which pay tribute to the great dynasties gone by- The Humayun Tomb, the 73 meter high Qutab Minar, the Jama Masjid which is the largest mosque in India, the Safdarjung Tomb and the Lodi Tomb. Delhi is also renowned for its vivacious nightlife and a few hours of shopping at Connaught Place or Sarojini Nagar are certain to delight any shopaholic.

b) Agra: Agra is famous throughout the world for the Taj Mahal, which is still believed to be the greatest tribute to love itself. Although more than three centuries have passed since the Taj Mahal was completed, its majestic domes of white marble and inlaid work of precious stones have been well preserved till date. If you are a fan of Mughal architecture, then a trip to the Red Fort should not be missed. Besides getting to see the Jahangiri Mahal, there are many examples of both art and architecture that can be seen all throughout the fort. The tomb of Itmad-ud-Daulah is till date one of the best examples of Islamic architecture and is also the first tomb in India to built of white marble.

c) Jaipur: The last stop on the Golden Triangle tour is the ‘Pink City’ or Jaipur which is home to some of India’s best loved royals. Everything about this city spells tradition, culture and royalty whether it is a simple lunch of ethnic Rajasthani fare or a puppet show. The Hawa Mahal with its 152 windows was built in 1799 and is a fantastic representation of Rajput architecture. The 18th century Jantar Mantar has an enormous sundial as well as other instruments which were used to study the stars. Jaipur is also well known for its lush gardens like the Sisodia Rani Garden built in 1710 for the then reigning queen. Jaipur also has many bazaars which make shopping a delight.
