Golden triangle with Ajanta and Ellora tour is among the classical ones which gives you an opportunity to get to know India. In this tour you find the best what India has to offer to the visitors. The capital Delhi which was destroyed and reconstructed seven times and where today in many of its parts modernity rubs shoulder with the hoary past, offers us the monuments from last many centuries. Jaipur, the famed Pink City of Rajasthan, reflects the glory of its marvelous Rajput history. Jaipur is a favorite tourist destination with its amazing fusion of history, religion, music, dance, arts and crafts. Agra was once the capital of the Mughal empire and even today it seems to linger in the past. Not surprising, for the Mughal emperors with their passion for building, endowed the city with some of the finest structure in the world, Taj

Mahal has a structural elegance and pristine beauty that has been rarely matched. Udaipur has been always famous as the romantic city of Rajasthan. Mumbai (former Bombay) with its temples, cathedrals and mosques is a real cosmopolitan city of India. Ajanta and Ellora caves have become today an important land mark in the India tourist map. We invite you to accompany us on this golden path to get to know India by visiting Delhi, Jaipur, Fatehpur Sikri, Agra, Udaipur, Mumbai (former Bombay) and Aurangabad.

In the morning we visit "
Qutub Minar" which is 71 meter high and consists of five stories. In 1199 work began on this tower which was intended to be the most glorious tower of victory in the world. This tower was damaged twice and repaired in 1326 and 1368. After the sightseeing of Delhi we drive to Agra. Arrival in Agra in the evening.

Day 04. Agra

We start today our sightseeing by a visit to the
Agra Fort, built by three of the greatest Mughal emperors. The construction of this massive structure began in 1565 under Akbar's reign and continued till the time of his grandson's reign, Shah Jahan who built the impressive imperial quarters and mosque. After the visit of Agra fort, we proceed to visit the most beautiful monument of India, the Taj Mahal, an enduring monument to love, with a continually fulfilling beauty. It was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan between 1631-52, as a tomb and memorial to his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal (Jewel of the Palace), who died at the age of 39 giving birth to her 14th child. We spend enough time at Taj Mahal to take this impressive memory home. After the visit of Taj Mahal we have a look at the famous fine marble inlay work which is still being done in Agra by the descendants of the families of builders and artists of the Taj Mahal.

Jaipur. Enroute we make a stop and visit Fatehpur Sikri, which was once an imperial capital frozen in time, constructed by Akbar the Great in the 16th century. This wonderful city constructed by red sand stones was abandoned as abruptly as it had been built. It has been generally stated that it was due to failing in the water supply.

Amber, laying 11 km. away from Jaipur. Amber was the ancient capital of Kachhawaha dynasty for 6 centuries before it was moved to newly created Jaipur.

Enroute to Amber we will visit the Hawa Mahal (Palace of the Winds), built in 1799 AD, it contains 953 small casements with each having its own balcony. The windows enabled cool air to circulate and the ladies to watch processions below without being seen. In the afternoon we visit the City Palace that is still the formal residence of the royal family, built in a blend of the Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. In the museum of the City Palace we visit the private collection of the Jaipur Maharajas. We continue to Jantar Mantar, a stone observatory, and the largest of Jai Singh's five remarkable observatories. Its complex instruments reveal us the secrets of medieval Indian astronomy.

After a break we visit the City palace, the biggest Palace in India, where 4 generations of Maharajas added their contribution, is so carefully planned and integrated with the original buildings that it is difficult to believe that it was not conceived as a whole. The museum of the palace includes the beautiful peacock mosaic and miniature wall paintings of Indian mythology. Today we have an opportunity to visit a traditional painting school and see the famous miniature paintings done. In the evening we have a Boat ride on the lake Pichola.
