Day 1 Delhi - Agra - Agra sightseeing –Fatehpur Sikri-Jaipur

On arrival at New Delhi airport, you will be driven to Agra, directly from Delhi airport. It will take approximately 4 hours to reach Agra.

Agra is a city in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, some 200 km from the Indian capital city of Delhi. Agra has three UNESCO World Heritage sites, the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort in the city and Fatehpur Sikri nearby. The sites are some of the wonders of the world and no trip to India is complete without at least one visit to the Taj. The earliest reference to Agra is in the ancient epic, the Mahabharata, while Ptolemy was the first person to call it by its modern name.

On arrival at Agra, Optima Travels’ representative will receive and introduce you with Agra tour guide. In the early morning, approximately around dawn hours, you will be taken by Agra tour guide to Taj Mahal. At the time of sunrise, Taj Mahal looks most stunning and beautiful. Visit the world famous Taj Mahal.

Taj Mahal’s construction started in the year 1631 and took approximately 22 years to build it. An epitome of love, it made use of the services of 22,000 laborers and 1,000 elephants. It was built entirely out of white Makrana marble. Built By: Shah Jahan; Dedicated to: Mumtaz Mahal, the wife of Shah Jahan; Location: Agra; Building Type: Islamic tomb; Architecture: Islamic.

After visiting Taj Mahal, you will be taken to visit Agra Fort.

Agra Fort: The fort is built alongside the Yamuna River and stretches almost 2.5 km. It consists of a wall built in red sandstone and several buildings inside. The wall has 2 gates, the Delhi Gate and the Amar Singh Gate.

After visiting Agra Fort, drive for Jaipur- a historical Indian city, located in Rajasthan. En route, visit the deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri. 35 kms from Agra is located deserted medieval town of Fatehpur Sikri. Have a stop-over there and visit monuments-rich Fatehpur Sikri. The famous monuments of Fatehpur Sikri include Buland Darwaja, Jodhabai Palace, Salim Chishti Shrine and Jama Masjid.

Buland Darwaja (Fatehpur Sikri) is a 15-storied high gateway that guards the North-eastern entrance of the city of Fatehpur Sikri. The intimidating structure stands 43 meters or 140 feet on the pedestal and a cool 54 feet above the ground. The gateway is approached by a steep flight of 42 steps, which add height and majesty to the entire structure. Buland Darwaja that is counted as one of the tallest gateways in the world is almost entirely made out of the red-sandstone with a generous dose of marble decoration on it.

On arrival at Jaipur, you will be received by our representative and directly transferred to Jaipur hotel.

Jaipur has been laid according to the conventional nine-grid pattern that astrologers believe to be lucky, and which has been recommended in the ancient Indian treatise on architecture. Jaipur has much to offer visitors — everything from pageants and festivals to extraordinarily clad people, a wealth of handicrafts, a royal legacy of palaces, and sightseeing — that will occupy their time. However, should the visitors simply choose to walk around the streets of the old city instead, they will not regret it. All of Jaipur is an architectural gem, and no scheduled sightseeing can even hope to do justice to this rare city.

Spend the evening in leisure and have overnight stay in Jaipur hotel.

The excursion to prominent fort of Jaipur will begin after early morning breakfast. Have breakfast in Jaipur hotel and proceed for exploring rich heritage, royal past, glorious history and refined craftsmanship of Jaipur while making a tour of Amber fort. Take an excursion to Amber Fort. Enjoy elephant ride from foothill to hilltop where the main gate of the fort is located. This “maharaja like ride” is a prime attraction of Jaipur tourism.

Amber Fort Palace - Amber is the classic romantic Rajasthani fort palace. Its construction was started by Man Singh I in 1592, and completed by his descendent Jai Singh I. Its forbidding exterior belies an inner paradise where a beautiful fusion of Mughal and Hindu styles finds its ultimate expression.

After visiting Amber Fort along with Jaipur tour guide, return to city centre wherein located three iconic architectural gems of Jaipur- City Palace, Hawa Mahal & Jantar Mantar.

City Palace: Standing majestically in the heart of Jaipur, the City Place offers a perfect example of Mughal and Rajput architecture. The City Palace houses many beautiful structures in its compound including a 7-storey palace 'Chandra Mahal' (moon palace), Mubarak Mahal, Diwan-e-Khas (the hall of private audience), and the Diwan-e-Aam (the hall of public audience). The Mubarak Mahal also houses a museum named after Maharaja Sawai Man Singh.

Hawa Mahal: Hawa Mahal or the "Palace of Winds" is the most striking monument in Jaipur. Though its name suggests it to be a palace, in really it's not a palace. Actually, the Hawa Mahal is a sandstone screen with 593 finely screened windows, used as a veil by the royal women folk to watch the proceedings on the road below without being seen.

Jantar Mantar: A not to be missed tourist attraction in Jaipur, the Jantar Mantar is a wonderful observatory, built in 1718 by the astronomical king Sawai Jai Singh, the founder of the city. Built in stone and marble, it has numerous scientifically designed instruments to study the movement of Stars. The "Ram Yantra," used for gauging altitudes, is the most remarkable of all the instruments here
