Indian Golden Triangle - Experience 3 Different Era

It is nearly impossible to not take name of the Indian Golden Triangle when you are travelling to India. The three cities that are covered under the Golden Triangle -   Delhi, Agra, Jaipur give you a glimpse from the ancient Indian times to the modern.  These three cities stand for three different eras: while Delhi and Agra stand for the Mughal and the British Indian culture, Jaipur would give you a sneak peek into the Rajputana royalty of India.

Have you ever time travelled? Visit Delhi and go beyond the boundaries of space and time by traversing through places like Jama Masjid, a huge mosque in all its grandeur was the busiest mosque during the Mughals and even until now remains so. Experience the magnificence of the Delhi Sultanate and explore the Qutub Minar group of monuments famous for its main tower rising tall and high since its inception from the times of Qutub - Ud – Din Aibak. 

Now jump an entire aeon and come to the British era and witness the influence of the British Empire on Delhi’s architecture, history and heritage. Take a stroll to Raisena hills and go visit the Parliament house. What you'll see there is what the historians famously call as the Lutyen’s Delhi – with spacious bungalows and the grand official buildings – The Parliament House now stands tall being India’s Democratic Hub. Watch royalty incarnated in monuments like the Humayun’s Tomb, the Red Fort and the Safdurjung tomb. Go to India Gate and pay homage to the martyrs of Indian Army and see the interminable Amar Jawan Jyoti. 

Let’s take this assertion forward and come to Agra. Watch the Mughal Empire, as Agra unfolds its glory, in all its eloquence and magnificence in front of your eyes, quite literally. Visit the Taj Mahal, which testifies that love has no realm defined – this world or the other, it would always flourish. Built in the fond memory Mumtaz Mahal by Shah Jahan, Taj Mahal is the white marble Wonder of the World. Delve into the depths of the heritage that Agra offers and visit monuments like The Agra Fort and not forgetting the tomb Of Itmad-Ud-Daula, who was present in the court of Jahangir as a prominent treasurer of his empire. 

While exploring the beauty of Agra, we cannot forget to mention the deserted City of Fatehpur – the vestiges of the erstwhile Mughal Capital, which include the famous Panch Mahal renowned for its unusual architecture, the Birbal Bhavan and also the exquisite Buland Darwaza. 

Coming down, to the third City of the Indian Triangle - Jaipur, which defines the Rajputana culture of India, visit forts and palaces like the Amer Fort, which is a perfect blend of Mughal and the Rajasthani Architecture. Visit places like Hawa Mahal, famous for its Jharokhas or the small windows, The Jal Mahal – an archeological wonder built in the midst of a lake which is heavenly in itself and Jantar Mantar – the famous Observatory of India built under the rule of Sawai Raja Jai Singh owing to his interest in astronomy.
