Culture In Indian Golden Triangle With Holi Colours

from
£899/per adult

Overview

If only one could taste India’s cultural extravaganza, explore its chaotic beauty, and get drenched in its vibrant colours (literally, we mean) during one trip! They say India’s heart lies in Delhi- in its imposing Mughal and Mamluk-era sandstone structures, its chaotic by lanes, its unrivalled rickshaw rides, its ever-so-busy markets and food streets. We say take two steps more and you might just end up discovering its soul! Hop on the most popular travel circuit in India- The Golden Triangle to explore the Indian cities of Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra.

The seven night and eight day-tour begins in the capital city of India, Delhi. Delhi offers a wealth of temple complexes and shopping destinations, as well as three UNESCO World Heritage Sites (the Qutub Complex, Red Fort and Humayun’s Tomb) and the India Gate, a memorial to the soldiers of the British Indian Army who perished during WWI. After marveling at these impressive landmarks, as well as the Lotus Temple, the Raj Ghat and Chandni Chowk (a marketplace) you’ll then tear through the streets of Delhi on a rickshaw ride like a true Delhiite.

If celebrating Holi in India has ever been on your checklist, we would be happy to help you strike it off. Be a part of the colourful festival organised for you.

After Delhi, enjoy a two night stay in the Pink City of Jaipur, the capital of the Indian State of Rajasthan. In 2015, TripAdvisor ranked this unparalleled jewel of Northern India as the number one Indian destination for the year in its Traveller’s Choice Awards and it doesn’t take a genius to work out why. Its colorful flamboyancy is echoed through landmarks and monuments such as the honey-colored Hawa Mahal, a five storey pyramid-shaped monument, as well as the astronomical observatory of Jantar Mantar which, along with Amer Fort, Jaipur’s star attraction, are classed as World Heritage Sites.

Towards the end of the trip you will visit the Mughal city Agra. In Agra, you can find the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Agra Fort however the most striking has to be the impossibly beautiful Taj Mahal. This fabulous building, built by Emperor Shah Jahan, is one of India’s most iconic symbols, displayed on millions of postcards and travel guides worldwide. If you happen to tire of its stunning backdrop and taking photos, Agra also offers a myriad of fascinating tombs and mausoleums, left behind by the Mughal Empire.
