When you’re visiting the North of India, it’s highly recommended that you include the Golden Triangle – Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. A trip to all three can take 7-8 days or more, depending on your itinerary. A famous tourist circuit, the triangle, uses Delhi as a focal point often starting and ending there. Trains, roads and flights connect all three cities letting tourists cover the maximum ground with the minimum fuss. With an overview of India’s cultural and historical gems, the Golden Triangle gives tourists a comprehensive glimpse of India’s many facades.
In this article, I will talk about Delhi and will cover Agra and Jaipur in the next series.
