Your journey begins and ends in Delhi, an amalgam of seven cities! From the early Mauryan Empire to the British Raj, Delhi is the imperial city of nine dynasties. Old Delhi captivates visitors with its crowded and bustling market, Chandni Chowk and a tour through it by bicycle rickshaw is exhilarating!
No visit to India is complete without seeing the Taj Mahal, recognized throughout the world as the ultimate monument to love! Built by Shah Jahan, Mughal Emperor, in memory of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal is considered one of the most beautiful buildings in the world. Onto Rajasthan, the ‘Land of Maharajahs’ and its most famous city Jaipur. Truly an exotic city, Jaipur resembles the taste of the Rajputs and the royal traditions of Rajasthan. Jaipur’s founder, Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II was a lover of astronomy, mathematics and astrophysics and the city reflects this with its wide avenues, palaces, and gardens laid out in a design following the principles of Vastu Shastra.
Next on your journey through Rajasthan is one of India’s most famous cities, Udaipur. Rajasthan is romantic with tales of valor and chivalry, and a history that brings to life forts and palaces and court intrigues. But Udaipur is different! A splash of color in colorful Rajasthan that's brighter, tinged with the tones of local legends and lore. Here are lakes that come as a surprise in sandy Rajasthan, and forested hills where wildlife still abounds. And in the lakes or by their edges are palaces straight out of fairy tales, each more beautiful than the other. There are rugged fortresses too -- Chittaurgarh and Kumbhalgarh, where the history of Udaipur is told as if it were but a page from yesterday. For in Udaipur the past lives and breathes with the present.
Your tour ends in New Delhi with its grand avenues and boulevards leaving a lasting impression on the traveler - a fitting end to a tour of Princely India!
