Arrive at Delhi, to be picked up by our representative from the airport.

Check-in.

After lunch, head out for the half-day tour of the city of Delhi.

Drive past some of the city’s cultural and historical landmarks like the Red Fort, Chandni Chowk Bazaar and Khari Baoli spice market on your way to visit Jama Masjid.

Towering over Old Delhi, Jama Masjid.serves to remind us of the grandeur of the Mughal reign. Commissioned by Emperor Shah Jahan when he moved his capital from Agra to Delhi, calling it Shahjahanabad (today’s old Delhi), built in red sandstone and white marble, the masjid is claimed to be the largest in India. Each year, on Eid, thousands of reverent Muslims throng the mosque, Shah Jahan’s last architectural opus.

Explore the mosque with your guide to see several cultural relics, including an antique copy of the Qur’an.

Continue with the tour to visit Red Fort, The Red Fort Complex was built as the palace fort of Shahjahanabad when the capital was moved from Agra to Delhi. Named for its massive enclosing walls of red sandstone, it is adjacent to an older fort, the Salimgarh, with which it forms the Red Fort Complex. The largest historical structure in Delhi, its complex comprises of many buildings which played a vital role in the governance of the old empire. Today it has been declared a World Heritage Centre, with thousands of history enthusiasts visiting each year. It is also home to the museum of blood paintings, war-memorial museum and archaeological museum.

On the way back to the hotel, drive by India Gate, built in the memory of Indian soldiers who lost their lives fighting for the British Army during World War l. Another Memorial was added to it, after India’s independence. An eternal flame burns under the monument commemorative to the soldiers who fought in the Indo-Pakistan War of December 1971.

India Gate stands at one end of Rajpath, the ceremonial boulevard that runs from Rashtrapati Bhavan on Raisina Hill through Vijay Chowk and India Gate to National Stadium, Delhi.

At dusk, India Gate is dramatically floodlit while the fountains nearby make a lovely display with coloured lights.

Day 0213.08.19 | Tuesday | Delhi

After breakfast, set out for the second leg of your Delhi tour.

Start with the Jantar Mantar, located in Parliament Street, south Connaught Circle of New Delhi, it is a vast astronomical observatory. It was built by Maharaja Jai Singh in the year 1724 and forms a part of a collection of five such observatories located in Jaipur, Ujjain, Varanasi and Mathura.

Delhi’s Jantar Mantar consists of 13 architectural astronomy instruments which can be used to compile the astronomical tables and to predict the movement and timings of the sun, moon and planets.

Next stop by the Qutub Complex.

Qutab Minar is a 73 m-high tower towering over New Delhi, built as a victory tower to commemorate the win of Qutab-ud-din Aibak over Delhi’s last Hindu ruler. At the foot of the tower is the Quwwat-ul-Islam Mosque, the first mosque to be built in India. A 7 m-high iron pillar stands in the courtyard of the mosque. It is said that if you can encircle it with your hands while standing with your back to it your wish will be fulfilled. Dating back to around the 4th century, about 7.3 m tall and made of 98% wrought iron, it has not rusted or decomposed for more than 1600 years, highlighting ancient India’s achievements in metallurgy.

The Alai Darwaza is a magnificent gateway situated north of Qutub Minar in the Qutub Complex. Following traditional Islamic architectural style, it was built using red sandstone and white marble was used on the exterior walls. Built as an extension to the main mosque of the complex, it is regarded as one of the most important buildings of its time due to the impeccable show of workmanship by the local and Turkish artisans who worked on it.

The next stop would be Humayan’s tomb,

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is the final resting place of Humayun, the second Mughal Emperor and father of Akbar, is set in an elaborately designed garden reflecting the belief that the 4 channels which intersect are symbolic of paradise.
Located near the crossing of Mathura road and Lodhi road, the significance of the tomb is enhanced by the fact that this was the first mausoleum to be constructed in India and that the many styles that grew to be listed as traditionally Indo- Islamic such as the grand scale of the buildings and the design of the surrounding landscape, was applied here for the first time, strongly influenced by Persian styles. The main building uses an unique combination of white marble and red sandstone, used probably for the first time as is the char bagh concept.
Over time between the 17th and 19th centuries, several tombs were added into the garden, making it what it is today.

A visit to the Lotus Temple, in the early 21st century, was one of the seven edifices dedicated to the Baha’i faith. This magnificent structure unfolds in the form of a stupendous white petal lotus and is made of pure white marble, surrounded by a large expansive garden and nine pools. The result of the overall design, creating the form of a floating lotus flower—a Bahāʾī symbol of purity, beauty, and divinity – on the verge of blooming and surrounded by its leaves.

Come to experience the tranquillity(despite a heavy footfall) and the uniqueness of the temple which excepts believers of all faiths, promoting the concept of one God and one World. Spend the rest of the evening at your leisure, exploring the city on your own; maybe head out for a bit of shopping.

Retire to the hotel for the night.

Next, head to the massive 16th-century Agra Fort, built primarily as a military structure but later converted into a palace,on the banks of the river Yamuna,is built in red sandstone and has has been handed down, through the Mughals, Nadir Shah, the Marathas, the Jats and finally the British, who used the fort as a garrison.

At the heart of the city, the palace serves to be a major attraction, with three parts of the palace converted into museums, the place is a must visit to discover the richness of the vibrant culture of the city of Jaipur.

Head to the Jantar Mantar, an observatory begun by Jai Singh II in 1728, for his fascination of astronomy was just as much as his fascination towards war and town planning. One of the five of its kind, this proves to be most significant, most comprehensive, and the best preserved of India’s historic observatories.

Next up is the Hawa Mahal. Jaipur’s most iconic monument, a complex honeycombed structure built in the centre of the city to enable the women of the royal household to observe the activities of the bustling city.
