The Golden Triangle of north India is one of the most popular and well-received tourist circuits of the country. The tour basically covers three of the most vibrant, beautiful and amazing cities of India ¨C Delhi, the country capital over decades, Agra- the seat of power during much of Mughal rule and home to the spectacular TajMahal, and Jaipur – the Rajasthani Capital with its traditions of chivalry and valour.
Anyone even slightly acquainted with India would know that she has no one face, no single image. With a full acknowledgement of this reality, the golden triangle tour has been structured in a manner that includes some of her best images and at the same time captures her diversity.
Starting with Delhi, one sees a modern metropolitan that is home to people of different regions, languages, and cultures. Created mainly between the thirteenth and seventeenth centuries, today Delhi is equipped with all the advantages of a modern city, and has the added appeal of having a rich historical and cultural basis that can be seen at every nook and corner in her streets. From the bustling lanes of her old city to the archaic charm of her Lutyenscenter, to the many monuments that mark the richness of her past, to her shopping arcades and contemporary malls ¨Ceach of these offers a different flavour of the Delhi experience.
