GOlden Triangle Tours To See India's Golden Attractions

Monuments of a place surely eulogize about the past grandeur. And often more. Delhi is an ancient land, where the culture rose to soaring pinnacles long before modern civilisation made its way into everyone's heart. Today, Delhites are justly proud of their rich heritage, that in itself a reason to plan a vacation trip to this capital city. Thanks to a vocal movement, conservation today takes precedence over development concerns and a lot of the country's architectural heritage is remarkably well preserved, while the rest is being restored to its pristine glory. So rich is the heritage - both secular and sacred - ranging from grand Mughal forts to the towering temples portraying exquisite architecture. Somewhere it is the ornate Nagara style, somewhere it is the opulent Gothis architecture. Tourists can also visit the fine churches and public buildings, that pepper the lush green land of Delhi. The grand colonial buildings made in European style can be found dotting the Central Delhi terrain.

Visit the complex of monuments and remnants at the Qutub Complex, comprising of the famous Qutub Minar and Iron Pillar. Worth a visit are the memorials of Humayun's Tomb, Safdarjung Tomb and Lodi's Tomb, which stand as a testimony of the rich Mughal architecture. Check out the ramparts of Feroze Shah Kotla and Havelis situated in the narrow crowded lanes of Chandni Chowk. A must visit are the colonial architectural grandeur, from the exquisitely designed Rashtrapati Bhavan and Parliament House, to the lush green lawns of India Gate that commemorates the soldiers who laid down their lives for their Nation and the Sectariates of North and South Block.

What Makes For A Holiday

Qutub Minar
Qutub Minar


The ancient monuments nestling in the modern quarters of the capital give something more than just a pleasure of reconnaissance, it also gives a satisfactory pleasure of discovery. The ruined ramparts, along with a dreamy traveller, move to find the long forgotten glory. Wander around, touch the moss covered red sandstone walls, enter the grand marble palaces that roost inside the colossal forts...do anything, go anywhere, but believe us you cannot forget the erstwhile royal pleasures and the definition of power that are carved on the walls of every building. Besides, if you happen to visit the ruins of the Purana Kila, situated near to India Gate, you can also enjoy a round of boat cruise on the shommering waters of the nearby lake. Visit India Gate, where besides appreaciating the grand architecture of the War Memorial, you can also freak out in the lush manicured gardens while munching some spicy ready-to-eat delicacies sold by the local vendors. Children can also enjoy horse riding and elephant rides that makes for a memorable evening. Interestingly, the light and sound shows that are held in the colossal forts in the evenings also re-create history in an amazing way.

Top 5 Reasons to Visit Monuments in Delhi


Old Fort

The Buildings The Sing The Bygone Glory
So rich is the heritage - both secular and sacred - ranging from grand Mughal forts to the towering temples portraying exquisite architecture. Somewhere it is the ornate Nagara style, somewhere it is the opulent Gothis architecture. But everywhere you can find fun.


Red Fort - A Poetry In Stone
After Mughal Emperor Shahjahan shifted his capital to the royal quarters of Delhi, this colossal fort sprouted from the heart of his new city, Shahjahanabad. Construction of this stately fort began in 1639 and took 9 years and a huge sum of 10 million to create such magic in red sandstone.


The Impressive Minaret of Qutab
Nestling in the southern quarters of lush Delhi, the 237.8 ft stately tower is an exquisite example of Indo-Islamic Afgan architecture. This ornate tower is now an eminent member of the World Heritage Site community, and leans about 60 cm off the vertical, but otherwise has survived the ravages of time impressively.


The Amazing Akshardham
The beautiful monument built without steel, consists of 234 ornately carved pillars, 9 ornate domes, 20 quadrangled shikhars, a spectacular Gajendra Pith (plinth of stone elephants) and 20,000 murtis and statues of India’s great sadhus, devotees, acharyas and divine personalities.


The Enchanting National Museum
Nestling at the corner of Janpath and Maulana Azad Road, just south of rajpath, the National Museum has in its possession over 2,00,000 works of exquisite art, both of Indian and foreign origin embracing more than 5,000 years of our rich cultural heritage.
