Things to do in Delhi
Pay your respects at the Gateway of India War Memorial
“The Arch of Triumph” of India was built in memory of the Indian soldiers who laid down their lives during World War I. Later, Amar Jawan Jyoti, which means “eternal flame,” was added to remind the nation of the soldiers’ sacrifices. The memorial is surrounded by a vast expanse of manicured lush green lawns with trees lined up in perfect symmetry.
People come here to enjoy the magnificence of the memorial, spend a leisurely evening on the lawns, picnic with family, or buy ice cream from vendors nearby.
Take a look at the remarkable embodiments of power
A trip through the Golden Triangle usually includes a visit to the centers of power in New Delhi, behind whose walls important administrative and legislative decisions are made daily. These include the House of Parliament, the Rashtrapati Bhavan (President’s House) and the Secretariat Building.
These centers are not only politically important, but they themselves are striking architectural marvels due to their impressive appearance. All of them, along with the Gateway of India, are very close to each other and can be covered in half a day, on the Golden Triangle tour.
Discover the humble cultural centers tucked away in this vast concrete jungle.
In addition to its dominant political side, Delhi also has a quaint, attractive cultural side. Some of Delhi’s major heritage sites are the Jama Masjid Mosque, the Lotus Temple, the Qutb Minar, and the Red Fort.
While the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India, attracts tourists with its peaceful, soothing interiors and Mughal red and white sandstone architecture, the Lotus Temple attracts them with its huge white lotus petals, soothing aura and lush, manicured lawns, perfect for a family picnic. Qutb Minar with its magnificent ruins and fantastic architecture and the Red Fort with its bright, attractive crimson color are two equally significant UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Treat your ears to a beautiful night of qawwali at Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah
If you want to experience something unique and special in Delhi, head to Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah, in Nizamuddin West, and spend an evening listening to sublime kawwali sessions that are sure to touch your soul! There’s nothing like an evening of lively, soulful Sufi music, followed by a hot, spicy barbeque dinner in the streets of Nizamuddin Basti. Such an outing will make your Golden Triangle tour more lively.
Gorge of delicious street food.
You can’t say you’ve been to Delhi if you haven’t tried its overly tempting, extremely flavorful and very unhealthy street food that brings you to tears (literally!). Kamla Nagar Market, Paharganj Market, Pandara Road, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Rajinder da Daba and, most importantly, the chaotic streets of Chandni Chowk are major foodie hubs for foodies living in or visiting Delhi.
What to do in Agra
Take a stroll through the massive royal corridors of Agra Fort.
This luxurious city is only 2.5 km away from its sister monument, the Taj Mahal. Agra Fort has a labyrinthine structure, high walls, a striking combination of red sandstone and white marble, and an unmatched royal appearance, making it one of the most attractive places to visit in Agra.
Once here, you will feel no less than a royalty of the past! Make sure you don’t miss a tour of the Diwan-i-Khas (the place for the king’s special guests) and Diwan-i-Aam (the place for public performances), while touring the fort.
Treat yourself to a sweet and salty Pethas of Agra.
Agra is famous not only for the architectural wonders of the Mughal era, but also for its variety of savory treats. Among the best of these is Pethas, a sweet, rose-flavored molasses made from coarse pumpkin ash and glucose. In fact, one of the best things to do on the Golden Triangle tour is to indulge in these delightful sweets! Don’t forget to try the famous Paan Petha while you’re here.
Immerse yourself in the crimson interiors of Fatehpur Sikri.
Built by Emperor Akbar, Fatehpur Sikri, or the City of Victory, was briefly the capital of the Mughal Empire. This wonder now figures prominently on the list of popular UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and thus on the Golden Triangle travel itinerary.
This fortified ancient city is decorated with intricate, detailed carvings and patterns that reflect the skilled and intricate stonework that existed at the time!
Things to do in Jaipur
Fall in love with the shimmering ceilings and fascinating history of Fort Amber.
Another striking UNESCO World Heritage Site you’ll encounter on this Golden Triangle tour is Amber Fort (or Amber). It stands majestically atop a small hill, and its magnificent red and white sandstone facade is reflected in Maota Lake below. This seemingly old fort holds as many attractive wonders within its walls as the royal images and endless battle scars it bears outside.
Explore the enchanting wonders of the Pink City.
Jaipur has many forts, palaces and monuments of antiquity left to us by the Maharajas and emperors, which now sparkle like gems in the city’s landscape. Besides attracting millions of tourists every year, they are also an important reminder of our glorious past!
Among these gems are the Hawa Mahal or Palace of the Winds, which has over 900 “jarokhas”, or small windows, and the remarkable City Palace, now a museum showcasing the unique royal heritage of the past. Also worthy of note are Jantar Mantar, one of the largest astronomical observatories ever built in the world, and Jal Mahal, the “floating” palace, which at dusk creates a striking contrast of yellow lighting and a midnight blue background.
Go shopping in the spectacular, attractive streets of Johari Bazaar.
Among the many delightful things to do in Jaipur is shopping, of course! Here you can buy souvenirs and traditional home decor items made from tiny pieces of glass dyed in indigo blue, red and green, as well as the famous Rajasthani dolls, which are a pair of cloth dolls in traditional outfits. Brightly colored juttis or flat-soled camel leather shoes with pointed tops and traditional Rajasthani clothing, including lehengas, dupattas and ghaghra-choli, will also delight your inner fashionista.
Those looking for traditional jewelry should head to Johari Bazaar. The traditional attractive designs and skilled century-old craftsmanship you will find here will surely charm you completely. Shopping in Jaipur is without a doubt one of the best parts of the Golden Triangle tour.
Enjoy the rich and vibrant nightlife of Rajasthan at Chokhi Dhani village.
Chokhi Dhani is a Rajasthan heritage and art complex that allows travelers to experience the rich traditions of Rajasthan, its typical village scene and unparalleled hospitality. Located on the outskirts of the city, it is designed to give people a true village feel in the most natural setting.
