GOLDEN TRIANGLE

History & Myths Trails

NORTH INDIA - Delhi, Agra, Jaipur

India's Golden Triangle comprises the three most visited cities in the country Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, which are all connected to each other by good road and rail links. On the map, these form a roughly equilateral triangle, some 200-250 km along each side. This triangle has been dubbed 'golden' for the extraordinary wealth of cultural and historical splendour on offer in each of the three cities and internatonal flights will take you directly to Delhi.

You could spend weeks in Delhi, the sprawling, fascinating Indian capital, and not see it all, while Agra, once the heart of the Moghul empire, boasts the unparalleled beauty of the Taj Mahal, which adorns the banks of the Yamuna river. Jaipur, capital of the largely desert state of Rajasthan, is home to some of Asia's best bazaars. The Golden Triangle is a classic introduction to India. If you've never been to the subcontinent before, start here!

THE CLASSICAL TRAIL

The magical Golden Triangle in India is one of the country's most popular tourist circuits. Comprising Delhi, Agra and Jaipur, it gets its name from the triangle that these cities form. Roughly located an equal distance of around 200-250 kilometers (125-155 miles) from each other in northern India, the cities provide a classic and unforgettable introduction to the country and its charms.

Delhi

Delhi, the capital city of India, is where many people start out on their trip. It's divided into two parts -- the crumbling old city of Old Delhi, and the orderly and well planned New Delhi -- which exist side by side, but feel like they're worlds apart. It's worth spending a few days exploring the city's ancient mosques, forts, and monuments left over from the Mughal rulers that once occupied the city. As many of them are set in attractive landscaped gardens, you can relax at the same time!

Agra

Agra is the home of India's most famous monument and one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Taj Mahal. Hence, it's a must-see destination on anyone's trip to India. Words cannot do the Taj Mahal justice, its incredible detail simply has to be seen to be appreciated. Agra is easily accessible by road or rail from Delhi.  The journey takes around 3 hours.

Jaipur

India's desert capital of Jaipur, affectionately referred to as the Pink Citybecause of the pink walls and buildings of the old city, lures visitors with its stunning remnants of a bygone era. Jaipur's most recognized attraction is the front facade of the "Hawa Mahal", or Palace of the Winds, which overlooks the main street of the lively Old City. Old forts and palaces, royal residences, and outstanding shopping opportunities ensure there's plenty to see and do there.
