These days everyone is in a rush! Even I am in a state of frenetic rush as I write this down for you to read. Since time is a major constraint in everyone’s life, so the holiday-goers are increasingly opting for multiple destinations during a single trip. And, without a doubt, when it comes to an Indian holiday, the best trip offering multiple destinations is the tour of the Golden triangle. The cities of Agra-Delhi-Jaipur enjoy the proverbial ‘holier than thou’ reputation and are no less sacrosanct than the Holy Grail. They collectively comprise the so-called holy trinity and are referred to, in a backpacker’s tongue, as the Golden Triangle of India. With cheap holiday packages readily available on the net, hopping on to check out all the vertices of this triangle is a job which is neither hassling nor pocket-burning!
To give you a fair indication of what you are signing yourself up for, let me give you a small gist of all the three cities.
Agra: Agra is the city which is on the wish list of so many foreign tourists that we have lost count (a long time back). It has got Taj Mahal (need we say anything more). Apart from Taj, which is the supreme attraction of your Golden Triangle tour, there is the ghost city of Fatehpur Sikri (built by Akbar) and a few other notable tombs and monuments.
Delhi: Delhi, the capital of India, is a hub of culture and a crowd of people. For a photographer, this city is like a kaleidoscope which moves at a pace hard to keep track of. In terms of sightseeing, the historic attractions of Qutub Minar, India Gate, Red Fort, Lodhi Garden and Humayun’s Tomb take the centre stage (though Lotus Temple and Akshardham Temple will lure the spiritual tourists).
Jaipur: Jaipur is the pink city of India and one where monkeys and peacocks can be sighted at will. History reiterates itself in this town and attractions like Hawa Mahal, Albert Hall Museum, Amber Fort, Jaigarh Fort, City Palace and Nahargarh Fort keep you in a trance.
