The Jewels Of Delhi – The Perfect Introduction To India
The Golden Triangle Tour packages by Thrillophilia begins with your arrival at Delhi on day one. Depending on the time of your arrival, you may have the day to walk around the city and visit Gandhi’s memorial house and multimedia museum at Gandhi Smriti, pay your respects to the huge Hindu Birla Temple or stroll through the ancient Lodi Gardens with their massive 15th-century tombs inspired by Central Asian architecture.
Day two is when you will discover Old Delhi’s most valuable heritage on a memorable cultural tour. Beginning with India’s largest mosque, the monumental 17th-century Jama Masjid, you will visit the site of Gandhi’s cremation, the Raj Ghat memorial complex, as well as the huge ancient minaret of Qutb Minar and the tomb of Mughal Emperor Humayun. All of this will serve as a crash-course of Indian traditions and history to prepare you for the end goal – not just marveling the beauties of the Taj Mahal, but also understanding its context, how and why it was built.
The Mesmerizing Pink City And The Tigers Of Ranthambore
Next you will leave the majestic capital city to breathe in the grandeur of Jaipur, the Pink City of India and one of the country’s prized jewels. You will spend the following two days unwinding in the picturesque surroundings (with charming monkeys playing around you), visiting the palace quarter with the breath-taking Hawa Mahal (the Palace of Winds, with its nearly 1000 windows!), the panoramic Nahargarh Fort and the ancient astronomical observatory of the kings of Amber featured in the film The Fall. Day four boasts one of the highlights of the tour: hot air ballooning! Is there a more scenic manner to take in the vistas of India than a bird’s eye perspective?
Days five and six will take you on an unforgettable jungle adventure in the prized Ranthambore National Park. In Ranthambore, you can hike up to a UNESCO World Heritage fort, but the main attraction is of course the majestic wildlife. Ranthambore is inhabited by dozens of endangered tigers – and if you go on a guided safari, you have a great chance of spotting one! You will also be in the company of other exotic animals like leopards, crocodiles, hyenas and hundreds of bird species.
The Taj Mahal – A Grand Finale
Having toured the bustling capital Delhi, witnessed the ancient wonders of Jaipur and perhaps even sighted a regal tiger in Ranthambore, you are now ready for the main course. From Ranthambore, you will depart to Agra, which holds the grand finale – the world-famous Taj Mahal. For a teaser, though, on day seven you will visit the 400-year-old ghost town of Fatehpur Sikri (the abandoned residence of Mughal Emperor Akbar) and attend a splendid Royal Mughal Night: a mesmerizing dance show accompanied by a gourmet meal.
Day eight will finally take you to Taj Mahal… and in a memorable fashion. On board a horse and cart or a rickshaw, you will arrive at the monumental white marble mausoleum of Emperor Shah Jahan’s favorite wife Mumtaz Mahal. Built for 21 years using the labor of thousands of builders and artisans, the Taj Mahal is renowned the world over as a masterpiece of architecture and is rightly seen as the symbol of India. Tour its magnificent gardens and revel in the stunning interior. And then crown your experience by visiting the grand Agra Fort, a walled city of splendid palaces and halls, before heading home via Delhi… but keeping India forever in your heart and mind.
There is no better introduction to India than the famous Golden Triangle – a tour of Hindustan’s top three tourist attractions. With Thrillophilia’s perfect organization and expert local guides, you will have the best possible introduction to India’s culture and nature. And the standout finish at Taj Mahal will just take your breath away. Book the Golden Triangle with Wildlife and Tigers Tour, one of the many popular India Tours.
