Agra - Jaipur
After breakfast it’s time for one of the highlights of your trip - a visit to the world famous Taj Mahal built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan in the year 1652 as a memorial for his beloved wife Mumtaz.
The grandeur called the Taj is perhaps the most photographed, filmed, described and sketched building of the world. Taj Mahal is where fantasy coincides with reality in perfect harmony. An inspiration for innumerous artists over the centuries, the Taj is an ode to love. It took 22 years to create this jewel.
You’ll then visit Agra Fort which was built and renovated over the centuries - a massive fort gained recognition only during the Mughal reign. Then it’s on to what’s sometime known as the Baby Taj, the Tomb of Itmad-ud-daullah - built by Empress Noorjehan in the memory of her father.
After lunch you’ll drive to Jaipur - the pink city of India. The capital of Rajasthan was given a colour coat of pink, a century ago in the honour of a visiting Prince and ever since it has retained the pink colour.
En-route you’ll visit Fatehpur Sikri - once the capital of Mughal Empire and abandoned after 15 years due to scarcity of water. Its fortifications and Palaces are in a wonderful state of preservation.
Upon arrival at Jaipur check-in at your hotel.
