India has a population of over 1.3 billion and its ethnicity is almost not countable. Thus is the diversity in its culture, but it has integrated well enough, to make the country proud in the tourism sector. India has improved in leaps and bounds over the years, and finds itself pitted in 34th place, among other countries in the Tourism Sector. The workforce is massive, to say the least. More than 8 million people are employed in this sector to harness India’s pride. Needless to say, the money which flows in strengthens the economy to a large extent. Given the fact that almost all the states in India have tourist spots, and not visiting the Golden Triangle tour with Varanasi would make the tourist’s diary look incomplete. 
 
The Golden Triangle with Varanasi is a tourism package for 8 nights and 9 days. The Golden triangle consists of the cities of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. If one were to add Varanasi to the tour diary, it would be the cherry on the top of the Ice-cream. Varanasi is of sound Hindu tradition base and millions of pilgrims throng the city gates and take part in the rituals. Varanasi, on the other hand, is also known for its tourism spots. Therefore, Delhi, Jaipur, Agra , Varanasi Tour is the main tour leg apart from Delhi. Let us travel into this subject, where you would tour the Golden Triangle with Varanasi.

Tour Highlights

  • A visit to the historic Red Fort and Chandni Chowk, which is the heart of Old Delhi, and shops around for spices, silver jewellery, dried fruits, handwoven sarees, etc. The Jama Masjid also should be messed up. The Qutub Minar, which is part of the Unesco World Heritage, would also be visited.
  • A trip to Jaipur during the day and visit two exotic places with a few others too. The Amber fort in Amber, which was the capital city of Jaipur princely state and the Jantar Mantar which boasts of architectural Astronomical instruments since 1734.
  • A trip to the local markets over there, where silver artefacts and handicrafts are on display and the shopping is worth it.
  • Dawn at Agra, the Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the World. We would witness the sun down.
  • Then off to our visit to Varanasi and a boat ride to be enjoyed, which would allow you to see lovely temples from the river. Bharath Mata temple is one of its kind and established in the ashram, which belonged to the Father of the Nation. It's “aarthi time'' in the evening at the banks of the Ganges, where you would see the beauty of thousands of lit divas. Before that, you can visit Sarnath, where Buddhism is strong in its roots.

Our Guests in Varanasi

Itinerary in Details

The package starts at this point as soon as you arrive in Delhi. You would have a small meeting with the tourism official, who would welcome you and then assist you to check into the Hotel which has been reserved for you. 

You are given ample time to rest and take a shower, to get ready for the Delhi tour, after some refreshments. This tour starts at noon, and the starting point is old Delhi. The guided tour would include the visit to the famed Red Fort from where the Independence day speech is made by the Prime Minister. Next, we would be visiting the Chandni Chowk, where you can shop for Spices that are of high quality along with dried fruits. Hand-woven saris and dress material are here too.
 
Chandni Chowk is known for its variety of street food they make and serve and you can have a taste of it. The next stop is the Qutub Minar, which is the tallest structure in Delhi. The visit ends with a trip to Jama Masjid, a mosque constructed by Emperor Shahjahan in 1656. You would see the twilight set in with the sun also fading into dusk. 

It’s time to go back to the hotel, freshen up for dinner, and sleep well, for the activities that would ensue on day 2.
Day two dawns, and you can freshen up before an early breakfast. Once that is over, we set off to Delhi. 

It is quite necessary to split Delhi here, as Old Delhi and New Delhi. The Moghul Dynasty had ruled over it for a long time, and you can see the impact of that in the style of construction. Old Delhi houses all these magnificent structures. 

But our quest is to visit the other half of the city, known as New Delhi, which is the Capital city of India. We first pay a visit to the famed Lakshmi Narayan temple, which was dedicated to the nation by the powerful family of Birla’s. It is also called the Birla Mandir for this very reason, and the temple houses Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi. 

From the Birla Mandir, we proceed on to the famous structure built-in 1931, known as the India Gate. This structure contains seventy thousand soldier names of the people who lost their lives during the First World War. 

After this visit, we proceed onto the centre of the city, to Rajghat which is the cremation site of the father of the nation. It is bordered by black marble and one can circle his grave and pay respects to the great Mahatma. The site itself is nature filled with various trees and plants that make it so pleasant. Here you can observe plants which were sown into the soil by Queen Elizabeth the Second, and Eisenhower, the President of the United States of America. which have bloomed into trees now. 

We would be driving away from Rajghat, to the Indian Parliament, and we could see plenty of Embassy buildings on our way. The Magnificent Indian Parliament looms on us as we drive around it, and the building is a marvel. It is the seat of power, and India is governed from here. 

The drive would take us to visit King Humayun's tomb, which was built by his first wife Empress Bega Begam, in 1570. 

After marveling at that structure, we travel to the tallest structure in Delhi, The Qutub Minar. We can wander over the area for some time and read the inscriptions, which would anyway be translated into English by the Guides. 

After this, we can return to the hotel for dinner and sleep.
Have a good breakfast and travel 260 km to Jaipur, which is also known as the city of lakes and aptly too. 

It is full of beautiful lakes, and almost exclusively laid down to the Royal families then, because there would be a palace at the edge of it. 

After four hours of travel, reach Jaipur and relax in the hotel for the rest of the day.
Our mission, however, is to travel to the Amber Fort which was built in Amber and served as the capital of Jaipur in days gone by. 

From there, we can rejoice in Elephant rides as those huge creatures take you around the vicinity of the forts. 

Once we disembark the Elephants, we will go straight into Jaipur and marvel at the city palace. Here, it is a blend of Rajasthan and Moghul culture and beautifully depicted on the walls too. 

It is time to visit Jantar Mantar, which displays a collection of an architectural, astronomical set of nineteen instruments, which were designed by the Rajput king Sawai Jai Singh II. He is also heralded as the Founder of Jaipur. Here you can see the World’s largest dial, which is also a part of the UNESCO World Heritage site. To complete the day, there are two more places, the first one being Hawa Mahal, which was constructed in the year 1799, of red and pink sandstone. It is one of the most popular Mahals in the Pink city of Jaipur. 

After that, it’s shopping time at the bazaar in Jaipur, where you are bound to be enamored by the silver artifacts depicting religious deities and Gods. These are artifacts kept in the various temples in Rajasthan for worship. Buy a few, to remind you later, of how beautiful Jaipur was. 

It’s time now, to return to the hotel and dine before sleep.
After an exciting day four, we travel towards Fatehpur Sikri, which is also a UNESCO protected site. King Akbar was the one who made it a township. 

There are a lot of Moghul monuments to be seen here, and once we are through with that the transport would take us to Agra, the home of the beautiful Taj Mahal, hailed as one of the world's wonders. 

But for now, we would check you into a hotel for a peaceful dinner and sleep.
Day 6 begins very early with a trip to the Taj, and catches its splendor as the sun rises in the East, showcasing it in a different color. 

The Taj Mahal was constructed by Emperor Shah Jahan for his favorite Queen Mumtaz to rest after her death. The Yamuna River is seen flowing nearby, and the gardens /lawns are beautifully preserved. 

The Taj is closed to visitors on Fridays, and once we are through with it, the Agra Fort is next in the itinerary, followed by the Id-Mat-Ud-Daulah's tomb. 

The Agra Fort has the most beautiful Pearl Mosque and the Halls of Private and Public Audience. This is also a Mausoleum like the Taj and is regarded as the ‘draft” of the Taj Mahal. 

Then we visited the Agra fort which has a beautiful Pearl Mosque where you can shop for Leather goods and gemstones. 

It is evening by now, as we cut the local transport off, and head to the railway station. It is a night journey to the holy town of Varanasi.
You are greeted at the railway station and taken directly to the hotel. 

After refreshing yourself, a day trip is planned to Sarnath, which is known for its Buddhist heritage.
You will enjoy a boat ride along the Ganges and have a view of the Ghats. 

Once that is over, you are taken to the Alamgir Mosque, which was constructed by Aurangzeb in the 17th century. It is time now to visit a national monument of ‘sorts’ called the Bharat Mata Mandir, which was constructed in 1936 by a popular freedom fighter. His name was Babu Shiv Prasad, which Mahatma Gandhi declared open. It is worthwhile to mention that the temple stands in Gandhi’s Kashi Vidyapeeth.

Next is the Kashi Vishwanath Temple, followed by a tour of the University of Benaras. Do have the famous ‘Paan’ over there, and check out the popular Banarasi saris. 

It is evening now, and with dusk setting in, we would make our way to the Banks of the Ganges, where the ceremonial Ganga Aarthi is performed at Dashashwamedh Ghat. It is a breathtaking experience, with the drums added to the chants and the bugles also blowing away. 

With that witnessed, you would be transported back to Delhi (by Air) and to your hotel. 

Dinner and sleep ensue.
After refreshing yourself, and breakfast, you would be checked out. 

You would also be transported to the airport for your onward journey. 

Conclusion: A hectic 9 days, but that can be a treasure forever. You would have noticed that most of the sites are UNESCO persevered and that is the value addition that India adds to World tourism. There are so many delights, which could have been missed , but the best of them have been visited. That signals the end of the Golden Triangle and Varanasi tour.
