India's Golden Triangle
Over the centuries, Delhi has entertained warring dynasties, visionary rulers, a colonial power, and pioneered the freedom struggle. Explore these different eras, from the 15th-century Lodhi Gardens and ruins, to the Mughal emperor residence of the Red Fort, to the colonial-era splendor of Rajpath, with its array of impressive buildings and landscaped gardens. Jaipur has her own story, one of pink sandstone and opulence. This is a land steeped in royalty—of palaces and forts (particularly the Amber Fort) and an old city encased within pink walls. Finally, you have Agra, home to the marble Taj Mahal, a memorial for the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan's beloved late wife and one of the finest monuments in the country.
