This afternoon visit the sprawling “Agra Fort” on the bank of the Yamuna River. This immense fort and palace was the seat of power for four generations of Mughal emperors. Agra Fort's architecture is an almost perfect fusion between military might and lavish beauty. Agra Fort, this is built in red sandstone and has magnificent palaces, halls of public and private audience and beautiful gardens. Built by Emperor Akbar on the west bank of the Yamuna, Agra Fort first took shape between 1565 and 1573 and thereafter structures within it were added by successive emperors. Today the towering red-sandstone ramparts house a variety of palace apartments, representing the different building styles of Akbar and his grandson Shah Jahan.


Day 4: Agra - Jaipur

This early morning we visit to Taj Mahal, this grand edifice was built by Shahjehan from 1631 to 1653 to enshrine the remains of his Queen Mumtaz Mahal. We walk into the inner chambers of this renowned “Monument to Love" and seek out several vantage points to see the magnificent play of light. It is truly worthy of its status as one of the world wonders.

Thereafter we drive to Jaipur enroute visiting “Fatehpur Sikri”, the mysterious ghost city founded by the Mughal Emperor Akbar the Great in the late 16th century and capital of the Mughal Empire from 1581 to 1595. The city occupies a sandstone ridge and the area around it is enclosed within a seven-mile-long wall. We’ll stroll about the fort and palace.

Then continue your drive to Jaipur. On arrival, please check-in at your Hotel

Your accommodation in Jaipur is for 02 nights including breakfast

Day 5: Jaipur

This morning after breakfast visit Amber Fort; including a Jeep ride.  Perched on a hill 11km from Jaipur and nestling among the Aravali Hills is the historic fort-palace. Set in a picturesque background, the splendid Amber Fort (Jaigarh) was built in 1600 by Raja Man Singh, commander-in-chief of the Mughal army during Akbar’s reign and greatest general of medieval India. There is a timeless appeal to Jaipur’s colorful bazaars where one can shop for Rajasthani handlooms and trinkets.

 After this visit Hawa Mahal, the Observatory-Jantar Mantar and City Palace. The Hawa Mahal or “Palace of Winds” was built in 1799 to enable the ladies of the royal household to watch street processions while remaining in a strict state of purdah. Between 1727 and 1734 Maharajah Jai Singh II of Jaipur constructed five astronomical observatories in west central India. The observatories or “Jantar Mantars” as they are commonly known, incorporate multiple buildings of unique form, each with a specialized function for astronomical measurement. Conceived and designed by Jai Singh, the City Palace, is a fine blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture. Chandra Mahal is still the residence of the present royal family.
