IRCTC is offering a North India Delight tour package covering Jaipur, Agra, Fatehpur Sikri, Mathura, Vrindavan and Delhi for seven nights and eight days. The tour is scheduled every Thursday and departs from Vishakhapatnam.
Jaipur, also known as the Pink City, is one of the first planned cities of India. Located in the semi-desert land in the state of Rajasthan, the city which was once home to royalty is now the capital of the state. Agra is home to the iconic Taj Mahal, a mausoleum built by the Mughal ruler Shah Jahan in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. Taj Mahal is one of the seven wonders of the world. The all-marble structure has a massive dome and intricately carved white marble inlaid with stone. Very close to the Taj Mahal is Fatehpur Sikri, a city that is famous for red sandstone buildings and the Buland Darwaza. The Buland Darwaza is the entrance to the Jama Masjid mosque. The famous tomb of Salim Chishti, the Diwan-e-Khas and Jodha Bai’s palace are all monuments that tourists can marvel over. The sacred cities of Mathura and Vrindavan are a must-visit for devotees of Lord Krishna. It is believed Lord Krishna spent his childhood in Vrindavan. At the Banke Bihari temple in Vrindavan, the curtain in front of Krishna’s statue is opened and closed every few minutes. At Radha Raman Temple, a gold plate beside Krishna signifies Radha. There is also Prem Mandir, a huge white marble temple. In Mathura, dotting the Yamuna River are 25 ghats (flights of steps down to the water), of which Vishram Ghat is considered the holiest. Sati Burj is a 16th-century memorial tower and Dwarkadhish Temple has a carved entrance and a black-marble idol of Lord Krishna. New Delhi is an urban district of Delhi which serves as the capital of India and seat of all three branches of the Government of India. The foundation stone of the city was laid by Emperor George V during the Delhi Durbar of 1911. It was designed by British architects, Sir Edwin Lutyens and Sir Herbert Baker. The full-day sightseeing tour will cover major tourist attractions like Qutub Minar, Lotus Temple, India Gate, the President House (Round Trip), Red Fort, Indira Gandhi Memorial and Birla Temple.
