These three cities have an abundance of culture and history. They have been headquarters to many dynasties and empires. The Golden Triangle trip usually starts with Delhi, and then extends to Agra and finally Jaipur.

Historical significance

In India, Golden Triangle trips allow you to visit many monuments and important places. Delhi is home to the red fort and various other memorials like the India gate and Red Fort. You can visit the rashtrapati bhawan, home of the president of India or chandni chowk, made famous by bollywood movies and its colorful markets. These markets are full of wares like electronics and textiles. You can eat at the paranthe wali gali or shop at the Dariba Kalan or the gold market. A short drive away is Agra. Agra was the capital for the Mughal Empire in the 16th & 17th century and is full of the monuments reminiscent of that era. While visiting agra on the Golden Triangle trip, you will get to see one of the eight wonders of the world. The Taj Mahal is an all white marble structure built by Shah Jahan, a Mughal emperor for his wife Mumtaz Mahal who died while giving birth.
