Trip Information

This cultural and sightseeing tour takes you to the attractive points of Delhi, such as Shahjahnabad, Chandni Chowk, and Jamsal Masjid, which is the biggest mosque in India. Other points include Humayan Tomb, which is a fine example of Mughal architecture.

Subsequently, the cultural and sightseeing tour takes you to the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. The former is the most beautiful building in the world, and the latter was built by Akbar the Great. Then it is followed by Fatehpur Shikri, which is the definition of the Mughal City.

The cultural and sightseeing tour also helps you to distinguish between the Rajput architecture and the Mughal architecture. Amber Fort is an evident. To step into Pink City Palace, which is made of pink sandstone, is to know about rare manuscripts, painting, and designs of the past India.

Mehrangarh Fort, situated at a high hill of 125 m, awaits you, and it is a treasure of courtyards and palaces, deep-terracotta latticed network, splendid collection of the trappings of Indian royalty, including some amazing elephant howdahs, miniature paintings and the inevitable Rajput armoury and ephemera-from ivory inlaid ladies dumbbells to camel-bone carpet weights.

The cultural and sightseeing tour also takes you to ‘Golden City,’ for example, Jaisalmer. Its fort looks like as if it has grown out of the desert. Explore all its sandstone-sculpted buildings, such as Patwo Ki Haveli, Salim Singh Ki Haveli and Nathmal Ki Haveli.

In the same way, the cultural and sightseeing tour familiarizes you with all the palaces, towers, and temples, made by different Maharajas of Udaipur and Mewar in the 6th century.

    Visit the Taj Mahal, the most extravagant monument ever built for love. This poignant Mughal mausoleum has become the de facto tourist emblem of India. Described by the Indian classical poet Tagore as “a teardrop on the face of eternity”, the Taj Mahal is undoubtedly the zenith of Moghul architecture. Visit Agra Fort made from red sandstone. Agra Fort on the bank of River Yamuna, its construction was begun by Emperor Akbar in 1565. In Akbar’s time the fort was principally a military structure, but during Shah Jahan’s reign it had partially become a palace.

It was once the capital city of Akbar after the childless Mughal was blessed with a son from the blessings of the Sufi saint, Sufi saint Salim Chisti, who lived here. The new capital came up in 1569. It is a perfect example of a Mughal city at the height of the Empire’s splendor.

    Today you have a tour of Pushkar, which is one of the most sacred places for Hindus. It is considered as important as Benaras or Puri. Hindus believe that no pilgrimage is complete without a dip in the holy lake of Pushkar. Pushkar has as many as 400 temples and 52 Ghats and the only temple in the country dedicated to Lord Brahma.

    While Pushkar is heaven for the religious and pious people, it is also the venue of one of the country’s most colorful and captivating cattle fairs, the Pushkar Fair. The festival lasts for 5 days in the month of November.

Like a giant sandcastle, its golden fort thrusts skywards out of the surrounding barren landscape. Dubbed the “Golden City” because of its honey color, it is a place that should exist only in the imagination. The fort is the most alive of any museum, there are homes and hotels hidden in the laneways, and shops and stalls are swaddled in the kaleidoscopic mirrors and embroideries of brilliant Rajasthan cloth.

    Also visit several of the finely sculpted sandstone buildings built by the wealthy merchants of Jaisalmer. Prominent ones are Patwon Ki Haveli, Salim Singh Ki Haveli and Nathmal Ki Haveli.
