Delhi is a travelers’ paradise, and so is Jaipur. There are several interesting places to visit in these three cities. For instance, if you start your trip from the capital city of Delhi, you can spend two days in New Delhi to explore the various tourist attractions in the town like the India Gate, Parliament, Qutub Minar, Red Fort, Bahai Temple, Akshardham Temple, CR Park Kali temple, etc.

Visit Agra from Delhi which is just around 4 hours drive on the road. Once you reach Agra, head straight to the loving memorial of Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal will certainly take your breath away with its beauty and purity. Once you have soaked in the beauty of the Taj, you can drive down to Fatehpur Sikri, which is around d 60 km away from the Taj Mahal.

How to plan a trip to Golden Triangle

Well one can explore these 3 amazing cities via train, as government has launched some good ones for travelers but the best medium is to hire a car and plan this trip as a road trip. I will suggest to book Golden triangle tour by car package from Rajputana Cabs which will cost like INR 6000 for three days. Plus also checkout Rajasthan tour by car from Jaipur which includes all the destinations of Golden triangle and some other cities of Rajasthan like Jodhpur, Jaisalmer etc.
