Tailor-made The Golden Triangle Holidays

The Golden Triangle is home to India’s crown jewels, a parade of UNESCO-listed architectural gems that stretch from Delhi to Jaipur and Agra. This well-worn tourist triangle offers the perfect introduction to India’s distinctive blend of chaos; where modern city life mingles with grand Mughal tombs and mosques, colonial forts, Jain temples and historic havelis. For many, the pinnacle is Shah Jehan’s world-famous monument to love: the mighty Taj Mahal.

The triangle begins in the capital, Delhi, where snaking, spice-scented bazaars await, sacred cows wander languidly across roads choked with beeping rickshaws and the calls of the chaiwala beckon, tempting you to stop for a cup of masala-laced tea. In Delhi, you’re practically tripping over architectural wonders: The Red Fort, India Gate, Jama Masjid and Humayun’s Tomb, to name just a few.

Meanwhile, in the blistering heart of Rajasthan’s Thar Desert, lies the fabled Pink City, Jaipur. The streets here are lined with rose-coloured palaces and incense-tinged temples where locals flock to worship at dawn. On a nearby hilltop, the imposing Amber Fort stands sentry like a giant sandcastle. For most visitors though, it’s the Taj Mahal that really steals the show. Agra’s marble mausoleum is most majestic at sunrise and set, when the heritage site sparkles and glows, bathed in golden splendour.

Put together your perfect Golden Triangle itinerary with help from our India experts, who have the inside scoop on the route’s top hotels and local guides on the ground.
