Detailed Itinerary

Day 1:Arrive Delhi

Upon your arrival in Delhi, you’ll be greeted with the warmest of welcomes and assisted with your transfer to the hotel, where you can unwind and rejuvenate for the adventure that awaits. 

Day 2:Delhi

After enjoying a hearty breakfast, embark on a comprehensive sightseeing tour of both Old and New Delhi, once the imperial capital of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. Although much of his city’s grandeur has faded, Old Delhi’s essence is embodied in its bustling backbone, Chandni Chowk. Today, this vibrant market boasts a plethora of items, from silver and jewellery to aromatic spices, leather goods, and fresh produce. Apothecaries offer homegrown medicinal items, while roadside dentists showcase their unique array of equipment and false teeth. 

Take a leisurely walking tour near Chandni Chowk, soaking in the vibrant atmosphere. Explore India’s largest mosque, Jama Masjid, a masterpiece of Shah Jahan’s architectural prowess. Commenced in 1644 and completed in 1658, the mosque features three grand gateways, four angle towers, and two minarets standing at an impressive 40 meters, constructed with alternating strips of red sandstone and white marble. 

Afterwards, board your awaiting vehicle and proceed to Raj Ghat, a simple square platform of black marble marking the site where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated in 1948. The surrounding park is adorned with trees planted by notable figures such as Queen Elizabeth II, USA President Eisenhower, Ho Chi Minh, and others. 

Continue your exploration with a visit to Humayun’s Tomb, the earliest example of Mughal architecture in India. Recently renovated, the mausoleum features restored gardens, working fountains, and an aesthetically pleasing ambience. Architecturally inspired by styles prevalent in Samarkand, the design of the Taj Mahal is rooted in this tomb. 

Your journey through Delhi’s historical wonders takes you to Qutab Minar, a towering 73-meter-high victory tower erected in 1193 by Qutab-ud-din Aibak following the defeat of Delhi’s last Hindu kingdom. The tower boasts five distinct storeys, marked by projecting balconies, and tapers from a 15-meter diameter at the base to a mere 2.5 meters at the top. The first three storeys are crafted from red sandstone, while the fourth and fifth storeys are composed of marble and sandstone. At the tower’s base lies the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque, the first mosque built in India. 

Conclude your day with an overnight stay at the hotel, reflecting on the rich historical tapestry of Old and New Delhi. 

Day 3:Delhi To Agra By Train

You will be transferred to Delhi railway station to board the Gatiman Express, departing at 08:10 and arriving in Agra at 09:50. Upon arrival, our team will provide meet and assistance. Proceed to visit the historic Agra Fort, built by Emperor Akbar on the west bank of the Yamuna River. Beautified with palaces and gardens by Jehangir, Agra Fort continues to dominate the city centre. Within the fort, explore notable structures such as the Diwan-i-Aam (hall of public audience) and Diwan-i-Khas (hall of private audience), which Shah Jahan built for receiving audiences. 

Other noteworthy places within the fort include the Khas Mahal, Sheesh Mahal (the mirror palace), and the Anguri Bagh (the Grape Garden). Following your visit to Agra Fort, check in at the hotel. 

As the sun sets, visit the world-famous Taj Mahal on the evening. This architectural masterpiece is a perfectly proportioned marvel crafted from white marble, built by Shah Jahan in 1560 as a tribute to his queen Mumtaz Mahal. It is a testament to the skill of 20,000 craftsmen from Persia, Turkey, France, and Italy, who dedicated 17 years to complete this ‘Love Poem in Marble.’ (Closed on Fridays) 

Conclude your day with an overnight stay at the hotel, immersed in the timeless beauty and history of Agra. 

Day 4:Drive from Agra to Jaipur via Fatehpur Sikri (245 km / 6 hrs)

In the morning, depart from Agra for Jaipur by road, making a fascinating stop en route to explore Fatehpur Sikri. 

Built by Emperor Akbar in 1569 to honour the great Saint Sheikh Salim Chishti, who blessed Akbar and prophesied the birth of three sons to the heirless Emperor, Fatehpur Sikri served as Akbar’s capital for 14 years. However, after Akbar’s departure, the city slowly became deserted and fell into ruin, primarily due to the scarcity of water. Explore the remarkably well-preserved and graceful buildings within the ‘Ghost City,’ including the Jama Masjid, the tomb of Salim Chishti, Panch Mahal Palace, and other structures that vividly reflect the grandeur and splendour of the Mughal empire at its zenith. 

Later, resume your drive to Jaipur. Upon arrival, check in at the hotel for a comfortable overnight stay. 

Day 5:Jaipur Sightseeing

This morning, embark on an excursion to the enchanting Amber Fort. Nestled amidst the rugged Rajasthani landscape, Amber is a classic and romantic Rajasthani Fort Palace. While the time-ravaged walls may not immediately capture the eye from the outside, the interior unveils a virtual paradise. Miniature paintings depicting hunting and war scenes, alongside vibrant festival scenes, adorn the walls. Precious stones and mirrors intricately embedded into the plaster enhance the grandeur. Inside the Jag Mandir, explore the famed Sheesh Mahal. In this room, all four walls and the ceiling are entirely adorned with glittering mirror pieces, specially imported from Belgium during that period. En route to Amber Fort, make a brief photography stop at Hawa Mahal—the Palace of Winds. 

In the afternoon, indulge in a sightseeing tour of the city, starting with the majestic Maharaja’s City Palace. Once the royal residence, part of it has been transformed into a museum, while a small portion continues to be used by the Royal family of Jaipur. Constructed in the style of a fortified campus, the palace spans almost one-seventh of the city’s area. A highlight in the museum is the Armory Museum, showcasing an impressive array of weaponry, including pistols, blunderbusses, flintlocks, swords, rifles, and daggers, once utilized by the royal families of Jaipur. 

 

Continue your exploration with a visit to the Jantar Mantar, the largest stone and marble crafted observatory globally. Positioned near the gate of the city palace, this observatory boasts 17 large instruments, with many still in working condition.

Notable havelis include Patwon ki Haveli (House of the Brocade Merchants), Nathmalji ki Haveli (The mansion of Nathmalji), Salim Singh Haveli, and more. Stroll through Jaisalmer’s narrow lanes, visiting small silversmith shops and stalls offering leather craft goods. Later, drive up to the Citadel to witness the spellbinding sunset over the desert, providing an enchanting experience. 

In the late afternoon, visit Khuri village and indulge in a camel ride (Camel Ride on direct payment basis). Khuri Village, situated 40 km from Jaisalmer, is a quaint ethnic village with picturesque mud-thatched buildings. Visitors are drawn to the shifting sand dunes, some reaching 80 meters in height, and the breathtaking sunsets, complemented by the option to enjoy a camel ride in the desert.

Within the fort, explore magnificent palaces featuring meticulously carved panels, latticed windows known as “Jarokhas,” and evocatively named chambers such as Moti Mahal, Phool Mahal, Sheesh Mahal, the Sileh Khana, and the Daulat Khana, each showcasing the splendour and glamour of a bygone era.

The grand temple, constructed from light-coloured marble, spans an area of approximately 60 x 62 meters. With its distinctive domes, shikhara, turrets, and cupolas, the temple majestically rises from the slope of a hill.
