An excellent weekend trip is the golden triangle tour of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur.
This tour is a wonderful way to experience some of the top most crowd pullers of India like the one and only Taj Mahal, the deserts of Rajasthan, and amazing feats of architectural brilliance such as Jantar Mantar, Hawa Mahal, Jal Mahal, Jaigarh Fort, Albert Hall, and Amber Fort.
The Golden Triangle tour remains an inseparable part of any India travel odyssey.
