India as a place has always attracted tourists both local and international and one of the most popular and frequently undertaken tour in the tourist sector is the GOLDEN TRIANGLE TOUR which covers three very important places which are our National Capital Delhi, the land of Tajmahal Agra and the Pink City Jaipur.
The next question is a very obvious one... why is it called The Golden Triangle? Well, the answer to this is very simple… It’s called The Golden Triangle because of the shape formed by the location points of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur on the Indian Map. The 4 nights/ 5 days Golden Triangle tour starts its journey from Delhi, whereby it moves towards south for a TRIP TO AGRA by ROAD where you see the majestic Taj Mahal and then after spending and clicking photographs there, you move towards the west side of the map, to the PINK CITY OF JAIPUR in the culturally beautiful Rajasthan.
