The Golden Triangle is a perfect window for those who are travelling to India for the first time and want to get a glimpse of the Indian culture and heritage. It is also the perfect holiday for the ones who are only on a short leave. The tour of the three cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur are perfect to know a little about the cultural heritage possessed by India.
The fusion of Old and New in Delhi provides a sharp contrast between what was and what is now; it shows us the changes that the city has witnessed over the years. The Pink City of Jaipur is full of architectural marvels, like the rest of India. The city is bathed in hues of Pink, and is thus known as the Pink City. It boasts of the mighty Amber Fort, the honeycombed Hawa Mahal and the rest. The wonderful experience of the Golden Triangle is incomplete without a visit to Agra to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World - Taj Mahal. It draws a perfect closure to the wonderful journey.
