Here are highlights of the Golden Triangle Delhi Agra Jaipur Tour:
1. Sunrise At Taj Mahal
Visiting the Taj Mahal should be at the top of your bucket list if you're traveling to India and want to see it. Sunrise views of the Taj Mahal are breathtaking.
The Taj Mahal is without a doubt one of the seven New Wonders of the World and is among the most exquisite and extravagant constructions ever built. At sunrise, there is undoubtedly a unique feeling at the Taj.
The Taj Mahal has an intriguing feature - the color changes throughout the day. It has a bronzy-orange tint in the evening, turns sparkling white in the afternoon, and appears pale pink at sunrise. Late at night, the Taj appears pale blue.
Going to the Taj Mahal before sunrise is highly advised, especially around dawn when the crowds aren't too dense and the skies are likely to be clear.
2. Delhi Old City Tour
Shah Jahan, the Mughal emperor who founded New Delhi in 1639, originally called it Shahjahanabad. Old Delhi is a walled area of New Delhi. Up until the end of the Mughal dynasty, it remained their capital.
The British later renamed it Old Delhi. It provides breathtaking examples of architecture, a delectable selection of cuisine, and a living, breathing piece of history.
In this city, eating is a big part of the culture. Old Delhi's winding lanes provide a dizzying array of culinary options. Here, the taste senses are literally set free by the exquisite aroma of food. Food that has been praised by national and international food guides will always tempt you.
Although meat is typically the main ingredient, the food also has mouth-watering hot parathas, chats, and sweets. A number of stores in Chandni Chowk's renowned Paranthe Wali Gali sell parathas, a fried Indian bread loaded with contents and served with pickles, curries, mint chutney, and tamarind chutney.
3. Agra's Barbecue Cuisine
The Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the world, has earned Agra its well-deserved fame. But going on a culinary tour to sample the city's barbecue cuisine is really the only way to truly see Agra.
Agra's culinary walk is the ideal way to spend the day there, either before or after visiting the Taj Mahal. This trip includes more than just a straightforward meal tasting. It brings you to some of the best and oldest restaurants in the historic city of Agra, where you can sample the cuisine, learn about its history, take a stroll through the bustling streets, and experience an entirely real kind of city discovery on foot.
4. Pushkar Camel Ride
What better way to experience the desert than on the back of a creature that has long been connected to these vast swaths of sand? A camel safari is the ideal method to explore desert places, particularly those as rich in history and culture as Rajasthan.
The Pushkar Camel Safari ride is set against a stunning backdrop of a clear blue sky, lovely sand dunes, and cactus plants. Sitting on the back of a camel, take in a magnificent ride and some of the desert's most beautiful sights.
Along with feeding the camels, you can become friends with them and enjoy this unusual journey. A trip on the powerful back is more enjoyable if you get a chance to see a mirage, which is a common sight in deserts.
5. The Nahargarh Sunset
Nahargarh Fort is the place in Jaipur that you simply must see at dusk. The fort offers breathtaking views of the city that point directly west, where the sun sets. The best views are probably from the walls that line the sunset point. You can choose to watch the sun set directly in front of you from the terrace, perched high above the walls, or you can walk up to the walls themselves.
In the evening, you can hear the city's activity in the distance, including music, automobile horns, and other sounds typical of Indian cities. The sky turns orange and it seems absolutely magnificent as the sun descends and emerges from the desert cloud.
6. Jaipur Shopping Excursion
The Pink City of Jaipur is well-known for its vibrant markets and traditional handicrafts in addition to its stunning architecture and UNESCO-listed landmarks. Additionally, it is a well-liked shopping area.
In other words, you can purchase anything you want for a great price. A truly remarkable combination, isn't it? People in this area definitely have a "shop 'til you drop" mentality.
As soon as we hear about Jaipur, we think of its diamonds, traditional Rajasthani attire, top shopping lanes, their hours, and specialties, and lastly, the largest malls the city has to offer.
7. A Traditional Rajasthani Dinner In Jaipur Featuring Folk Dance And Music
Jaipur, a city with a lengthy history, is home to many forts and palaces that are worth visiting. However, the city is also renowned for its delectable gastronomy.
Dining in Jaipur is a vibrant and delectable experience that combines culinary traditions from the royal kitchens to the street stalls of regular families and fuses local culinary traditions with those of neighboring areas. While visiting the state's capital, make sure to sample some of Rajasthan's delectable cuisine, which combines aromatic spices, unusual flavors, and locally grown products such as pulses, grains, herbs, etc.
Genuine Rajasthani cuisine, from the mouth-watering laal maas to the delectable daal bhaati choorma, is best eaten in Rajasthan. What better place to indulge your taste senses than the state's capital.
8. Boat Ride In Udaipur
Udaipur, often known as the City of Lakes, derives much of its appeal from the abundance of lakes there. Pichola Lake is one of the most well-known lakes in this area and is frequently visited by visitors.
Hills, castles, temples, bathing ghats, and embankments line the perimeter of the lake. There are four islands in the lake, and they have been constructed with lovely castles that are the perfect places to enjoy breathtaking lake views.
The most popular attraction in Udaipur is the enormous and opulent City Palace, so you should put visiting it high on your list of things to do there. Starting in 1553, the City Palace took more than 400 years to complete! The complex, which is open to Udaipur visitors these days, is thought to be the biggest in Rajasthan.
