The Golden Triangle of India is the best approach to India for those who travel for the first time or want in 10 days to know this captivating destination.

Delhi, Agra and Jaipur make up the Golden Triangle It is in the north of the country with the most monuments, temples, mosques and the unmissable Taj Mahal of Agra.

Entering by air through New Delhi, the capital, you can take the tour of the three cities by car. For an immense country like India, the distances between the three cities are relatively close. We join the Golden Triangle, the visit to Udaipur. It is a little further, but it is worth it, as you will be able to see is this series of ABC Mundial Chronicles in India. (which includes the chronicles, photos and videos).

Before starting it is important to say that it is absolutely advisable to hire guides approved by the Ministry of Tourism of India. Since the distances and the traffic generate long trips, it is always interesting to talk with the guides and optimize the time in each place that is visited.

The traffic is intense. The horns (the horn) of cars and motorcycles do not stop sounding.

New Delhi has approximately 22 million inhabitants, in a country that is the most populous democracy on Earth, more than 1300 million inhabitants and an annual birth rate of 15 million people.

That in India the cows are sacred they will notice immediately.
Cows, along with monkeys, elephants and, to a lesser extent, camels, will be the most common animals to see.

Gastronomy is very "special", so to speak. For those who do not have a strong stomach, we recommend you remember these two words: "No spicy"

What can be done and what places can be visited in each city:

In New Delhi, tour the Old Delhi neighborhood by rickshaw (a kind of bike for two).

We will walk for a while through the picturesque Chandni Chowk market next to the Red Fort. You have to go comfortable to break through a world of people. And pay attention to the local sales of many spices and fabrics. They will always find a place where they propose to try on a sari, it is the traditional dress of the women of India.

You can also visit the India Gate, the Parliament and the Government Palace.
In Old Delhi, the Jama Masjid mosque.

The Hindu temple Swaminarayan Akshardham is a must.
Akshardham was opened in 2005. You cannot take pictures or videos inside.

Finally, we must go through Raj Ghat of New Delhi, the monument dedicated to the memory of Mahatma Gandhi.

In Agra we will find the most special and symbolic monument of India, the Taj Mahal.

It is the mausoleum that Emperor Shah Jahan had built in honor of his great love and third wife, Mumtaz Mahal. (Chronicle and separate videos)

Jaipur is the capital of the state of Rajasthan.

The most important tourist attraction is the Amber Fort, 10 kilometers from Jaipur. Surrounded by long walls in the hills of Rajasthan, the Rajput Maharajas was home.
For those who are encouraged, the visit is complemented by a ride on Elephant.

In the old quarter of Jaipur, The Pink City and the facade of the Palace of the Winds, Hawa Mahal, are close to a commercial area where you can find jewelry, fabrics and the most colorful clothes. The Palace of Winds was built in 1799 so that the women of the palace could look behind the latticework of the most active area of ​​Jaipur.
 From their 953 windows, women could observe street life without being seen.

Other points to visit are the City Palace, which served as a residence for rulers since the 18th century, and Jantar Mantar, an astronomical observatory of the same century.

The Raj Palace is ideal for history lovers. After a major rehabilitation, it was opened as a hotel in 1996 by Princess Jayendra Kumariji, current owner of the palace.

 An ideal postcard for photos is Jal Mahal, a palace that seems to float in the center of a lake.

Immersed among three artificial lakes, Udaipur is probably one of the most romantic cities in all of India.

To visit: The City Palace, Sahelion-ki-badi and the Jagdish Temple. On the shores of one of its lakes, a Camel ride closes an incredible adventure in incredible India.
