On your first day in Delhi, you’ll notice the amalgamation of a rising modern nation in harmony with traditions. While Delhi can prove to be an overwhelming experience for some.

The markets are decked with discounted goodies attracting the shoppers to relish in the festive atmosphere. While the country waits feverishly during the festive season, Delhi celebrates it with an elevated fervor.

On this trip, you will experience the ancient UNESCO heritage sites like:

Qutub Minar

Face of Delhi tourism, this brick Minar is one of the architectural and city-planning marvels of the Delhi Sultanate. The monument is a gleaming beacon of beauty during the festive months before Diwali.

Red Fort:

As the name suggests, the magnificent fort sitting in the heart of Delhi is entirely made out of red marble. The historic fort is famous for hosting huge Diwali celebrations since the Mughal rule. Make your way to Red Fort to witness the stimulating Traditional Diwali special light & sound show.

Humayun’s Tomb:

From Agra with Love

The second of the iconic Golden Triangle vertices holds the most awe in the Golden Triangle of India. This probably is what drew you to India in the first place. The Taj Mahal, one of the 7 Wonders of the World, is as stunning in its beauty as it is significant in India’s history.

On your way to Agra from Delhi make a pit stop at the Lal Quila, also known as the Agra Fort. The former capital and the centre of power for the Mughals, Agra Fort has a peculiar story. Just like the Taj Mahal is represented as a symbol of love, Agra Fort stands as a symbol of complications in relationships. The Agra Fort, grand in size and history, was a place of house arrest for the emperor Shah-Jahan. It is said that the son of the emperor, Aurangzeb placed Shah-Jahan in Agra Fort for emptying the royal treasury in pursuit of constructing The Taj Mahal.

Talking of the Taj Mahal, the architectural symbol of love that attract millions from around the globe. This world wonder truly deserves to be on every travel bucket list. You can try and capture its beauty through a lens, up close, across the Yamuna river, or far away from the lit rooftop cafes with the Taj View.

Though Agra is also one of the best places to visit in July in India during the rainy season, imagine the moonlit white marble gleaming in all its glory, with a perfect reflection of its minarets on the tranquil Yamuna river. If you think it can’t get any better. Suddenly the silence is broken by a large firecracker bursting against the backdrop of the Taj Mahal. That’s when you know, you just had a moment you just can’t get back!
