From tranquil religious places and architectural splendours to noisy street life and rich history, the whole tour serves the right introductory ingredients for those who want to know India extensively. The tour gets its name from the geographical location of these three cities. New Delhi, the capital of India, is located amidst Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. Below it, on the right side, you can find Agra perched on the river Yamuna. From there, on the left, travel in an imaginary straight line, and you will end up in Jaipur. This is what makes the famous "Triangle". As for "golden", the word is used to highlight the extraordinary wealth of cultural and historical grandeur which lies in each of the three cities.
For decades, this particular tour has been a buzzword for international travelers. The reasons behind this are self-explanatory. The Indian Golden Triangle Tour gives the perfect blend of culture, architecture, cuisine, religion, etc. For instance, travelers who are interested in architecture would love this tour for the reason that it contains 25 per cent of the total UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There are forts, palaces, tombs, temples, mosques, and ancient ruins. The breath-taking Taj Mahal comes under this tour, which is a huge reason enough to embark on this journey.
In addition, each of the cities is also known for its cuisine. Where Persian and Mughal styles have dominated the famous Delhi and Agra, Jaipur gives you the flavour of Rajput cuisine. The shopping spree is also colourful, especially the street markets where a good bargainer can get the best deals on traditional dresses, kurtas, earrings, juttis, bags, etc.,
Speaking travel-friendly, all three cities are very well connected with roads, trains, and flights. The cities are also near, just 200-250 km from each other. You can either book a private car or explore the local transport to get an authentic Indian travel experience. Many travelers also book a Golden Triangle Tour package to avoid any hassle during the travel as it includes travel, accommodation, food, and a guide as well.
