Golden Triangle


India's Golden Triangle is a tourist circuit which includes: Delhi, Agra (including the Taj Mahal), and Jaipur. These trips usually last 7 or 8 days and do the trip as a circuit starting and ending in Delhi. Flights and hotels are often included in the price, and it is normally possible to do the trip by coach or private journey through most tour operators. The Golden Triangle is now a well travelled route, hosting many of India's great cultural gems, and providing a good spectrum of the country's different landscapes. The Golden Triangle is so called because of the triangular shape formed by the locations of New Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan on a map, but is occasionally expanded to include the wider geographical area of North India, most frequented by tourists. Most tourists fly from Delhi, travel southwards to the site of the famous Taj Mahal at Agra, then west, to the desert landscapes of Rajasthan, including the city of Jaipur. These three cities are extremely popular as tourist destinations among the foreign tourists visiting India as well as among the natives.

The circuit is about 1000 km by road. Each leg is about 4 to 6 hours of drive, though with new Yamuna Express Highway between Delhi and Agra it takes around 1.5 hours to reach Agra by Road. The faster Shatabdi train runs between Delhi and Agra, and also Delhi and Jaipur. Golden triangle East is a tourist circuit in Odisha which includes Puri, Konark, and Bhubaneshwar.
