The golden triangle consists of visit to Delhi, Agra & Jaipur- one of the most visited spots on Indian map. Delhi being the capital of the country, the capital of kingdoms and empires in the past, is now a sprawling metropolis with a fascinating blend of the past and the present. It is a perfect introduction to the composite culture of an ancient land. A window to the kaleidoscope - that is India. Agra having the Taj Mahal - Little needs to be said about this architectural wonder which is always the soul raison-de-etre for every tourist's visit to Agra. Jaipur - The beautiful city of Jaipur can be traced back to the eighteenth century, during the reign of Jai Singh II who ascended the Amber throne in 1699.
