While one would take at least a few months to travel around the country, which is not possible for every traveller, For those running short of time, I would suggest that one can undertake the famous Golden Triangle Tour of India. The route of Golden is designed in such a manner that it helps one to take a glimpse of the multicultural heritage.   

The tour starts from Delhi, Agra & Jaipur. If you look at this on the map of India its form’s a triangle, this is where it attains the name from.

A visit to Delhi cannot be completed without your visit to Chandani chowk. Its a famous destination of shopping right from clothes to knickknacks to electric to utensil’s, This place houses it all, The tiny lanes are always over crowded due to the bulk avaibility of the all the stuff at throw away prices. If one gets the time to raise their head up above the shopping stalls one would get an idea that this place once have housed the traditional houses which are now covered under the exquisite shopping stuff’s . Be careful, with the amount of cash you carry as pick pocketing is very common. Also the traders over here don’t accept cards which compels one to carry cash. This is where the famous parathewaali galli lies, however one can eat here only if you are used to eating street food otherwise on the exterios doesn’t seem a great place to eat. (I skipped it).

It covers the area of 17 hectares which also has lovely gardens. The upper cenotaph are only for illustration purpose the real tombs are laid beneath the illusionary tombs.  The beauty of Taj Mahal is worth the watch in moonlight.
