Golden Triangle India Tour
Delhi is an ideal base for a number of short breaks in northern India. From seeing the magnificent Taj Mahal in Agra, bird watching in Sultanpur National Park and exploring spirituality in Vrindavan, Culture Trip has shortlisted the best day trip options for you.
North India has its own characteristics. Having fought off invasions from the east for centuries, this stable region has a diverse culture that is reflected in the diverse art, architecture and cuisine of Delhi. While there’s plenty to see, do and experience in the city itself, it’s nice to take a day away from the capital — especially at these 10 spots.
An overnight stay in one of Jaipur’s beautiful palaces is highly recommended; however, if you’re short on time, a day trip is still a great way to experience the city’s royal heritage. Must-see historical places in the area include City Palace, Hawa Mahal, Amer Fort and Nahargarh Fort. For souvenirs, Bapu Bazaar has everything from Indian fabrics to fancy shoes, but to browse the newest local brands, head to the shopping complex outside the Narain Niwas Palace Hotel. Before heading home, stop for a cocktail at Bar Palladio, a dreamy candlelit establishment that blends colonial architecture with stunning classic Mughal design. Also, you can choose for best experience of Jaipur Sightseeing tour, Jaipur Sightseeing Tour Package.
Neemrana Fort Palace
For travelers looking for a leisurely escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, a lazy lunch at the beautiful Neemrana Fort Palace is recommended. Built on the Aravalli Hills, it offers a spectacular view of the countryside below. After lunch, a stroll through the countryside will take you to unique local shops and small temples, and you can end the day with a performance by traditional Rajasthani folk dancers. If you choose to stay overnight, the hotel and castle contain several beautiful structures – you could spend another day exploring – spread over 10 hectares (25 acres).
The Taj Mahal is not the only attraction you can visit during a day trip to Agra – you can also add Agra Fort and the “ghost town” of Fatehpur Sikri to your itinerary. Taj Mahal was built by Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, while his grandfather Akbar founded Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri. All these places are brilliant examples of Mughal architecture. Sunrise is a particularly magical time to experience the Taj Mahal, so if you can handle the early wake-up call, it’s worth booking a private tour. Otherwise, take a morning train from Delhi – preferably the Gatimaan Express, which will take you to Agra in two hours. Taking a bus from the Saray Kale Khan Interstate Bus Terminal is cheaper but doubles the travel time.
Vrindavan is the place where Lord Krishna spent his childhood days and the city has many temples dedicated to Krishna and his consort Radha. When the spiritual leader Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu arrived in Vrindavan in the early 16th century, there was nothing but forests around, and legend has it that the divine aura he felt there was unlike anything he had ever experienced. As if guided by some heavenly power, Sri Chaitanya began identifying various spots associated with Krishna and instructed his disciples to build temples at each of these spots. Spend the day exploring them all – there are more than 1,000 – and in the evening watch the beautiful aarti (light worship) ceremony at Kesi Ghat.
