Tour Plan

escorted to the hotel.
Delhi, the vibrant capital city of India lying along the River Yamuna, is a inhabitant   of 15
million people and nowhere in the Country is so contrast between old and new cities. Delhi is
in two parts : First , The Old Delhi of the Mughals, created by Shah Jahan after moving his
Capital from Agra in 1638 AD is still a medieval district of narrow lanes, forts, mosques and
bazaars. The second, New Delhi, built by the British between 1911-1931 and characterized
by Sir Edwin Lutyens’ architecture, is a spacious and well-designed metropolis of broad
avenues, grand imperial buildings and landscaped gardens.

Day 2 Delhi

Breakfast at hotel.
This morning start the city tour of Delhi by driving along Rajpath, a two mile long avenue
originally the focal point of British India and now used for parades; lined with   rulers is a
ornamental canals the views in both directions are imposing. Drive past India Gate, built to
commemorate the Indian and British soldiers who died in World War 1, Parliament House
and Rashtrapati Bhavan. Later in Old Delhi previously known as Shahjahanabad, take a
cycle rickshaw through the  chaotic, noisy and bustling markets of Chandni Chowk, where
trading continues in the maze of shops as it has done over the Centuries.   Stop at the
magnificent Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India and the final architectural
extravagance of Shah Jehan. Afterwards visit one of the most inspirational monuments of
Delhi’s past, Humayun’s Tomb. The earliest great example of a Mughal garden tomb and the
forerunner to the ornate Mughal style of architecture later perfected in the Taj Mahal,
Humayun’s Tomb was built in 1565 by a Persian architect. Surrounded by well maintained
gardens it is a wonderful place to visit. Conclude your day with visit to Qutub Minar, a World
Heritage monument and one of the most instantly recognisable and historically important
monuments in Delhi. Evening visit Gurudwara Bangla Shahib – A Sikh Temple. Overnight

Day 3 Delhi – Agra

Taj Mahal, Agra
After breakfast proceed to Agra,( approx 03 to 04 hours drive ) on arrival check-in hotel.
After lunch depart for a sightseeing tour of Agra visiting Agra Fort, Itmad-ud-daulah & Taj
Mahal. Agra was the capital of the Mughal court during the 16th and 17th centuries and its
sublime monuments date from that era.  The palaces, tombs, forts and gardens dot the
picturesque riverine region along the Yamuna River; three of which, the Taj Mahal, Agra Fort
have been declared World Heritage Sites. Agra fort is situated on the west bank of the
Yamuna River, the imposing red sandstone Agra Fort was started in 1565 by Akbar. The fort
surrounded by a moat forms a crescent along the riverfront and encompasses a huge
complex of courtly buildings reflecting the varied styles of the Emperors. Wander through the
lavishly decorated halls, courtyards& galleries discovering hidden pavilions & alcoves with
glimpses of Taj Mahal in the distance. Itmad ud Daulah, also known as the Baby Taj
superbly combining white marble, coloured mosaic, stone inlay and lattice work to produce a
beautifully delicate and unique piece of architecture. In the evening visit to the incomparable
Taj Mahal. The world’s greatest monument to love and devotion. Built by the emperor Shah
Jehan for his favourite wife Mumtaz, its perfect proportions and exquisite craftsmanship took
20,000 workers almost 22 years to complete in 1653. It is undoubtedly a building as close to

Fatehpur Sikri – The deserted, red Sandstone City, Emperor Akbar built that as his capital and palace
in the late 16th century is an exhilarating experience. It a veritable fairytale city and its “ruins” are in
pristine condition … it’s not hard to imagine what the court life must have been like in the days of its
grandeur. Also visit the Bulund Darwaza, the largest gateway in the world.

Chand Baori , Abhaneri
Abhaneri – Abhaneri is prominent for ‘Baoris’, step wells which were invented by the natives to
harvest rain water. These tanks were used as cool places of retreat and as water reservoirs during
parched times of the year. Chand Baori is the most popular of the wells in the region, and it is one of
India’s deepest and largest. There are three ways to reach the water using the steps, which are
divided into stories. This colossal, delicately carved well is located in front of the Harshat Mata
Temple. It was a ritual to wash the hands and feet at the well before visiting the adjoining temple.
Harshat Mata Temple, dedicated to the goddess Harshat Mata, serves as the other tourist attraction
of Abhaneri. Razed during the invasion of India by Islamic rulers in the 10th century, the remains of
the temple still boast architectural and sculptural styles of ancient India. Harshat Mata is considered
to be the goddess of joy and happiness. According to myth, the goddess is always cheerful, and she
