New Delhi, the capital and the third largest city of India is a fusion of the ancient and the modern. Delhi displays a picture rich with culture, architecture and human diversity, deep in history, monuments, museums, galleries, gardens and exotic shows. Comprising of two contrasting yet harmonious parts, the Old Delhi and New Delhi, the city is a travel hub of Northern India.
Steeped with Mughal history, Old Delhi, takes you through the labyrinthine streets passing through formidable mosques, monuments and forts. You will also discover lively and colorful bazaars which boasts of goods and items at mind-blowing prices in the midst of a barely controlled chaotic ambience.
The imperial city of New Delhi displays the finely curved architecture of the British Raj. It generates a mesmerizing charm reflecting well-composed and spacious streets under the shade of beautifully lined avenues of trees and tall and imposing government buildings.
Srinagar is the summer capital of the state of Jammu and Kashmir and is the pride of the beautiful valley of Kashmir. Srinagar, famous for its lakes, gardens and the charming rows of houseboats floating on them is also called heaven on earth. It is also known for traditional kashmiri handicrafts, kashmiri clothes and dry fruits. When The Mughal emperor Jahangir visited the valley of Kashmir he was so enthralled by the beauty of this valley that he suddenly exclaimed "Gar firdaus, ruhe zamin ast, hamin asto, hamin asto, hamin asto" (If there is a heaven on earth, it's here, it's here, it's here). And if the visitors are coming here for the first time then they just can't deny what the emperor said.
Agra formerly known as Akbarabad, was once a symbol of Mughal power and aspiration, but it was also their residence and they filled it with lavish gardens and elegant palaces, It was the capital of India during the Mughal era and it's a city of rich heritage of art, culture and architecture. The most famous building of the city is obviously the Taj Mahal, the king Shah Jahan built it for his loving wife Mumtaj Mahal. It is one of the New 7 Wonders of the world, and one of three World Heritage Sites in the city, the others being Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri. The great Taj Mahal appears pink in the morning, white during the noon and golden in the moon light.
Jaipur, the Pink City is the capital of Rajasthan. Jaipur is surrounded on all sides by rugged hills, crowned with forts & enclosed by embattled walls. Houses with latticed windows line the streets with their rose pink colour, lending enchantment to the scene, which is almost magical at sunset.
The whole city was painted in pink colour by Maharaja Man Singh II when Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, visited Jaipur in 1876 AD.
Jaipur & its surroundings are rather like an endless museum. The city also offers an endless variety of crafts with the Jaipur's lacquer bangles being famous all over the world.
