It has been interesting to share my travel experience with all the travel enthusiasts alike. With my two friends, Sasha and Joseph I planned to visit India. My friends also gave their consent for the famous Golden Triangle Tour, India.

This tour covers the three ethnic cities of India-Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. For a change, we selected a tour operator in Delhi to arrange the tour for us. We left everything on them and they assured us to arrange booking, transport, accommodation and itinerary planning.

As soon as we reached Delhi, we managed to explore the city by heading towards Connaught Place. This bustling area is known as the heart of the city, which we discovered on foot. During lunch hours, we were back to the hotel and relished our lunch.

The next day was packed with the exciting experience of Delhi Sightseeing. We got a car for this, which was arranged by our tour operator who took all our pain by providing us Golden Triangle Tour Package. Starting from India Gate, we came across various historic monuments such as Red Fort, Qutub Minar, Humayun’s Tomb and Lotus Temple.

We also spared some time for Shopping in Delhi, which gave us a chance to pass through narrow lanes of Chandni Chowk and bustling central market in Lajpat Nagar.

After that tiring yet interesting experience, we took shelter of the dreamland. The next day we headed to Agra, which was another charming destination of Golden Triangle trip. We took around 6 hours to reach the Taj City. Golden Triangle Tours have also been termed as the Taj Mahal Tours.

Joseph and Sasha were high on excitement once we could treat our eyes with the outstanding beauty of the Taj Mahal. This exceptional architectural marvel deserves all the praise. Meanwhile, it got sunset and we could actually understand why it is a must on all the Agra Travel Packages. Its beauty was just beyond description. It was a great way to conclude the day with the soothing views of Taj during sunset.

After that, it was our off to Jaipur where we came across various impressive sites. One of them was the famous Amber Fort. An outstanding specimen of ancient architecture, the fort made us wonder.

Other monuments that became a part of our exploration were the City Palace, Hawa Mahal, Jaigarh Fort and Jantar Mantar. In the evening, we visited Chokhi Dhani, the ethnic village resort that displays the truest form of Rajasthani culture.

We were happy to explore the three most amazing cities of India with our Golden Triangle Travel.

With every word, a pearl cocooned in love will fall…

Agra, the greatest pride of India Tourism, is a place that can be visited time and again. The monotony of my daily life was taking a toll on my sanity and I really needed, at least, a short break . So I and one of my friends, Shivani, decided to go to Agra. I had been to this wonderland once, when I was in school. Memories of my past visit filled my heart with joy.

Agra is a historic city with treasure-like attractions in its sleeves. Once the capital of the Mughals, Agra is an important destination of the Golden Triangle Tour circuit. Synonymous with Taj Mahal, this city attracts tourists from across the globe.

We reached Agra early morning and were booked in the Mansingh Palace Hotel. The hotel is named after Rajput Emperor Sawai Mansingh, a very close associate of Mughal Emperor Akbar. Post breakfast, we set out to see Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world. It was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. The breathtaking sight of Taj Mahal surrounded by beautiful lush green gardens festooned with fountains was such a rejuvenation to my sore eyes.

The interesting facts about this incredible monument are: the interiors were studded with precious and semi-precious stones, the architectural style is based on interlocking arabesque concept and uses the principles of self-replicating geometry. Its inlay work of floral designs and calligraphy are mesmerizing. The arresting structure is a perfect amalgamation of Mughal, Persian, Central Asian, and Islamic architecture. In fact, everything about this ‘wonder’ is fascinating and intriguing. This most sparkling jewel of India is soaked in glorious history.

After visiting Taj Mahal, we decided to go for lunch and then shopping. From here we head to Clark Shiraz, the five star hotel, to have lunch in its wonderful restaurant. We dined at its roof-top restaurant, the Mughal Rooms, and enjoyed the bewitching views of Taj Mahal along with the lip-smacking dishes.

Post lunch, we invested a few hours in shopping. Agra is famous for its inlay work, marble articles, leatherware, brassware, carpets and jewellery. We explored the Sadar Bazar and Kinari Bazar and bought some wonderful handicrafts. After shopping we traced our steps back to the hotel. We chatted till late night and finally forced ourselves to retired to bed as we had to leave the next day to cover the rest of the attractions of Agra.
