The Golden Triangle is an essential element to any holiday when visiting India for the first time! Experience the history of massive forts, the opulence, and splendour of Rajasthan’s palaces and the bustle and buzz of markets and bazaars. Not only does it include the iconic Taj Mahal but also other treasures such as Amber Fort, Jaipur’s Palace of the Winds and the ancient bazaars of Old Delhi. The Triangle is made up of the three most-visited cities in the north of India – Delhi, Agra and Jaipur – and is so called because of the triangular shape formed by the three cities on a map as well as the treasures within. This trip is an express tour of the must-see sights of the Golden Triangle.
