It is surrounded by green grass and trees that were planted by famous personalities such as US President and World War 2 leader Eisenhower and Queen Elizabeth II. 

Next comes the India Gate.

As your day starts, you will be heading out on the road right after your breakfast wherein you’ll be departing for Delhi, with stops in the cities of Mathura and Vrindavan respectively. 

In the city of Mathura, you will be visiting the famous ‘Krishna Janmabhoomi' temple. Throughout Hindu culture, Lord Krishna has been worshipped in each and every corner of the world, and not just in India. This is the place which is considered to be his birthplace, which just shows how important it is. It was originally a prison cell, and it has been reconstructed and destroyed by various dynasties from time to time. This is the most important place to visit in Mathura, after which comes the city of Vrindavan. 

Vrindavan is a small yet pretty town and has a lot of culture that revolves around Lord Krishna. Here, the most famous temple is the Banke Bihari Temple. In this temple, a form of Lord Krishna which lifted an entire mountain on his small finger is worshipped. It enjoys footfall from millions of pilgrims and tourists every year, especially during the festival of ‘Holi’. This temple was built by Swami Haridas Ji, and is also famous for Jhulan Yatra Festival, a festival that is celebrated in the month of August. 

Then there is also the ISKCON temple, better known as the ‘Krishna- Balaram temple' to visit too. This temple beautifully imbibes in itself the sophistication of modern architecture combined with the beauty of Indian temple architecture to present one of the most beautiful temples in the entire city of Vrindavan. Here, you will find Lord Krishna and his older brother, Lord Balram being worshipped. There are also Bhagwat Geeta(a Hindu religious text) classes going on, and in the evening, some amazing aarti of the Lords being conducted. 

After you are done exploring these places in Mathura and Vrindavan, get back on the road and depart towards Delhi. 

Check in to your hotel just as you arrive and stay there for the night.
On the seventh day, finish off the tour breakfast in the morning and after that, continue back on this amazing tour of Golden Triangle with Haridwar. 

Today the tour heads for the holy city of Haridwar via road. The name Haridwar literally means Gateway to Lord Vishnu (Hari is another name of Lord Vishnu). This beautiful city oozes holiness in every sight. It is an amazing place with a culture that only revolves around its temples and pilgrims. 

This is the first major city from where the holy river Ganga descends from the Himalayan mountain ranges. In fact, Haridwar in itself is situated in Lower Himalayan ranges. It is the city which is also the Gateway to four many Hindu pilgrimage sites, namely Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri (glacier of river Ganga) and Yamunotri (glacier of river Yamuna). 

Even the great music band ‘The Beatles’ came to this city due to the holiness, calmness and tranquility it offers. 

As a visitor to this holy city, you can use this opportunity not only to get in touch with your spiritual side, but also to learn more about Indian art and culture. 

Just as you arrive in Haridwar, check-in to your hotel and freshen up, after which the tour departs for some sightseeing in Haridwar. The first place to visit will be the famous Mansa Devi temple. This is a very famous temple, and is among the ‘panchteerth' (five pilgrimage temples) within Haridwar. Here, a form of Goddess known as Goddess Mansa is worshipped. She is considered to have taken birth out of Lord Shiva. The temple is quite scenic in itself, and is located atop a hill known as Bilwa Parvat. 

As evening approaches, you will be departing towards 'Har ki Pauri', a place near the bank of river Ganga. Here, witness the majestic and ‘Ganga aarti', which tourists from all over the world come to see. It is the grand celebration of the holy river Ganga, on which the whole civilization of India thrives. It started centuries ago, and this tradition never stops, no matter how tough times are. 

There are hundreds of clay ‘diyas’(lamps) that can be found floating in the river Ganga, beautifully illuminating the whole area with its magnificent yellow light. This scenic beauty will be much more beautiful when seen together with the holy chants of Hindu mantras, a site to behold indeed. 

As soon as you’re done with watching the beautiful Ganga aarti, get back to your hotel, where you will stay for the night.
The eighth day of Golden Triangle with Haridwar and Rishikesh, the tour will explore some more beautiful temples of Haridwar and Rishikesh. The town of Rishikesh is situated about 25 kilometers away from Haridwar. 

It is a beautiful hill station, and has a lot of serene ashrams, temples and bridges along the shore of river Ganga. There are even a lot of yoga and meditation centers located in the city of Rishikesh. The first place you will visit is the ‘Laxman Jhula' (Laxman Bridge). It is named after Lord Laxman, the brother of Lord Ram. It is a 450 feet long hanging bridge that is situated right above the river Ganga and makes for a really amazing scenery. This beautiful bridge acts as a connector between two villages, Jonk in Pauri Garhwal district, on the east bank of the river Ganga and Tapovan in Tehri Garhwal district, on the west bank of the river. 

The next place to visit is the Ram Jhula (Ram Bridge). It is quite similar to the Laxman Jhula. It is also 450 feet long and is above the river Ganga. It connects two ashrams, Swarg Ashram on the western bank of River Ganga to the Sivananda Ashram on the eastern bank of Ganga. It is an extremely beautiful location indeed. 

After this, the next place to visit is the Geeta Bhawan. It is a very beautiful location that is situated on the banks of river Ganga. It is extremely calm and oozes tranquility. There is a lot of greenery around it and one can find a very old Banyan tree in the ashram. There is also a temple and a guest house meant for the devout who visit the ashram. 

The next place on the list is the Sawarg Ashram. This is another place filled with peace and serene nature. This ashram is a place where things such as alcohol and non-vegetarian food is strictly prohibited. It is located on the eastern banks of the river Ganga, and has a lot of visitors who come there every day to experience peace of mind and get in touch with their spiritual side. This ashram is accessible either via the Ram Jhula or you can take a cable car to reach this place. 

After you are done with the day’s visit, come back to your hotel and rest there for the night.
