Regions within Golden Triangle

 

The ‘Golden Triangle’ is perhaps one of the most famous tourist trails in the world.

Comprising of India’s capital city, New Delhi, as well as the cities of Agra (home of the Taj Mahal) and Jaipur, the Golden Triangle provides the ultimate glimpse of all that is India. From visiting its most famous historic sights, exploring magnificent ancient forts and palaces, to experiencing the kaleidoscope of sights, sounds and colours that is daily-life in India.

The highlights of each of the three corners:


Delhi 

Visit the historic sights of Old Delhi, the city built by the Moghuls, including the Red Fort and India’s largest mosque (Jam Masjid), or the area of south Delhi, older still, for Humayun’s tomb and Qutb Minar. 


Visit New Delhi, built by the British, to experience some of the best restaurants in India – from traditional Indian cuisine to international fine dining.
