  • Day 1: Delhi to Agra

    Our representative will greet you at Delhi airport and escort you to a comfortable vehicle for the onward road journey to Agra.
     

    Agra conjures images of the Taj Mahal, the impressive Agra Fort as well as the historically seeped Fatehpur Sikri. Poised on the banks of Yamuna, Agra is every bit a tourist hub, with its much sought after Mughal era architectural wonders, mausoleums, bustling marketplaces or chowks, hordes of rickshaws and buzzing guides.
     

    Check into the hotel and after refreshing up, we begin sightseeing.
     

    The first destination is of course, the absolutely magnificent Taj Mahal. Deserving of all the hype that surrounds this structure, the Taj Mahal is an ode of love built by Shah Jahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. This splendid white marble structure though imposing is laden with intricate designs and carvings that are delicately detailed and finely carved.
     

     

    About two and a half kilometers from the Taj, stands the Agra Fort, a massive monument in red sandstone which can be described as a walled city. The planning and layout within the fort is highly impressive and strategic since the Fort acted as the residence of the Mughal dynasty till 1638. It is believed that Shah Jahan spent the last days of his life in Agra Fort in the Muasamman Burj, a tower with a balcony view of the Taj Mahal.
     

    Your final stop for the day is at Itmad-ud-Daulah. Also known as Baby Taj, it was in fact built much before the Taj Mahal, by Nur Jehan wife of Jahangir, in the memory of her late father. Built in white marble and encrusted with semi-precious stones, the interiors of the mausoleum have intricate carvings, which many believe inspired the same in Taj Mahal.
     

    After an eventful day spent in visiting the famous tourist sites of Agra, spend the night relaxing in the comfort of your hotel.

  • Day 2: Agra to Jaipur with Fatehpur Sikri en route

    After breakfast, drive to Fatehpur Sikri.
     

    Fatehpur Sikri built by Akbar served as a capital for the Mughal Empire for a short 14 years, however, its architectural splendor and Indo-Islamic influences are hard to miss or found any place else.
     

    Visit the tomb of Salim Chisti with its stunning white marble façade and intricate carved marble screens is built in the honor of the saint who predicted the birth of an heir to the Mughal throne.
     

    Other attractions include the magnificent Buland Darwaza built by Akbar as a mark of victory over Gujarat and the historically iconic Diwan-i-Aam and Diwan-i-Khaas, where the just king held hearings of the general public in the former and private meetings with his talented and trusted navratnas or nine ministers in the latter. In fact, Birbal, one of the most famous and witty ministers from Akbar’s court of navratnas lived in Fatehpur Sikri.
     

    Besides, the palace of Jodabai, Akbar’s Hindu wife is also a popular tourist attraction.
     

    With the Mughal influence still pervading, we now continue to proceed towards Jaipur.
     

    Jaipur is the land of the erstwhile Rajput kings who are deemed to be warrior legends. Their valor, strength and focus on integrity and values set them apart and are remembered as one of the most notable era in Indian history.
     

    King Jai Singh II who was also titled as Sawai Maharaj by the Mughals is the Rajput king after whom the city of Jaipur is named.
     

    Jaipur, also called the ‘pink city’, is fraught with palatial architecture, mahals and forts that glorify the rich past, as well as, with clambering auto rickshaws, alleyways and camel laden rides making Jaipur a heady mix of the old and new, the grand and the mundane.
     

    Enjoy a Rajasthani folk music performance and a puppet show performed by the local tribal in the evening along with a hearty meal before retiring for the night.

  • Day 3: Attractions in Jaipur

    After breakfast begin the sightseeing tour of Jaipur.
     

    Amber Fort Palace situated on a hill top was constructed by Man Singh I in 1592 and completed by Jai Singh I. The interiors of the palace are breathtaking and the different sections within, such as, the Sheesh Mahal or palace of mirrors, Jas Mandir with its decorated ceiling and latticework and the Shila Devi temple with the splendid silver carved door are some examples of the intricate, delicate yet well thought and planned layout of the palace’s interiors.
     

    The Amber Fort Palace with its formidable red sandstone exterior plastered as white façade melts your heart once you step inside.
     

    Next, the City Palace built by Sawai Jai Singh II, has been the home of Rajathan royalty since the 18th century. The palace is a blend of the Mughal and Rajasthani architecture and is an interesting and unique construction of various pavilions, temples, gardens and palaces. The City Palace Museum displays a wide range of items and souvenirs used by the royals and kings.
     

    Jantar Mantar built by King Jai Singh II is a scientific and astronomical architectural delight. Walk through this geometric maze of wonder to sharpen your intellect and flex some brain cells.
     

    Hawa Mahal or the Palace of Winds, is another architectural wonder in the city of Jaipur. With an exterior that reminds one of a honeycomb or beehive, the Hawa Mahal is built with perfect logical conclusions in order to allow the maximum circulation of air during the hot summers. This five storied structure is made of lime and mortar and intricately decorated with delicate designs and lattice works. The jharokas or windows offered privacy for the queens to peep out onto the world making Hawa Mahal an architectural feat of historical significance.

     

    The Birla Mandir with its stunning three towers signifying the three different approaches to religion is an iconic landmark of the city of Jaipur. The white marble structure boasts of elegant carvings on pillars of gods, goddesses, as well as, of Christ and Virgin Mary. Witness the surreal aarti or lighting of lamps in the evening.
     

    You are free to explore the city on your own and shop or relax in the free time. Jaipur is famous for its silk, tie –dye material, handicrafts, gold/silver jewelry and carpets. Shop or take a stroll along the streets before retiring for the night.
