Delhi

Presently the national capital of Republic of India, Delhi, since the ages, has been a theatre of tumultuous political upheavals. From the times of legendary Pandavas of Mahabharata fame to Rajput rule to Sultanate rule to Mughal rule to British regime and, presently, to Indian democratic rule, Delhi has been centre of political and cultural activities. Now-a-days, Delhi is the largest commercial centre in northern India. Due to glorious past and modern infrastructure, Delhi is an incredible mélange of ancient and modern & alleys and broadways. It is a hotpot of cultural amalgamation. Delhi is a great place to taste spicy and non-vegetarian Mughlai dishes along with vegetarian Hindu cuisines. Probably Delhi is one of the richest capitals in the world in terms of monuments of historical importance.

A few places which attract the masses are Qutub Minar (world's tallest free-standing brick minaret and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Red Fort of Delhi (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Humayun's Tomb (first mature Mughal Tomb built in 1560), Akshardham temple (the largest Hindu temple complex in the world), the Lotus Temple (a Bahai worship place & notable for its flowerlike shape), the India Gate (originally called the All India War Memorial, located astride the Rajpath), President House, Parliament Building etc.

Agra

Agra finds its mention in epic of Mahabharata as ‘Agravana’. Agra is traditionally and culturally part of Brijbhumi, associated with legendary Lord Krishna. Strategically located on the banks of river Yamuna, the city of Agra has seen many upheavals due to intermittent attacks of the invaders to take control of it. Agra remained under control of the Rajputs, the Muslims, the Marathas and the British. Though the influences of these regimes are quite visible in art, architecture and culture of the city but the Mughal impact is more pronounced, especially in old Agra. Now-a-days, Agra has been synonymous with Taj Mahal from tourism perspective. Taj Mahal can easily be termed as a feather in the cap of India, particularly Agra, which also possesses the most precious jewel in the country’s crown the “Taj Mahal”. Sikander Lodhi, Babur, Humayun, Akbar, Jahangir and Shahjahan ruled with Agra as capital of their kingdoms. Babur was the first Mughal king who built first Islamic monument in Agra i.e. Gul-e-Afgaan or the Aram Bag -a planned garden. During the rule of Akbar, famous monuments of Agra, Fatehpur Sikri and Agra Fort, were constructed. Sikandara and It-mad-ud-Daula are the famous buildings of Jahangiri period. World renowned Taj Mahal, built by Shah Jahan in fond memory of Mumtaj Mahal, is now one of the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’. Agra is also known for its fabulous handicrafts, made of marble and soft-stone inlay work. Agra's major handicraft products besides inlay work are: leather-ware, brassware, carpets, jewellery and embroidery work.

Fatehpur Sikri

Fatehpur Sikri, a historical place with nicely preserved monuments of Mughal era, is a must see place while visiting Agra. Located some 37 kms from Agra, Fatehpur Sikri of Buland Darwaja fame was founded by Akbar in 1569 to express his gratitude for Sufi mystic Salim Chishti, who was born in Sikri village. Many historians believe that Fatehpur Sikri was established as a joint capital with Agra but due to paucity of potable and drinking water, the plan to shift a section of imperial officials there had been reversed. Even today, its red stone architecture, richly ornamented with carvings & firework, is in a perfect state of preservation. Buland Darwaja is 15-storied, stands 140 feet on the pedestal and is 54 feet above the ground. A steep flight of 42 steps leads one to the massive gateway and makes it as one of the tallest gateways in the world is made of red-sandstone with marble decoration on it. With Quranic inscription on the front and cenotaph on the heights of the gateway, Buland Darwaja is a splendid blend of Hindu and Persian architecture. The calligraphy work done on the inner façade of Buland Darwaja has very less parallels in India.

Jaipur

Jaipur, present day capital city of India’s largest state Rajasthan, is representative of typical Rajasthani culture, art, architecture and lifestyles. Known as ‘Pink City’ or ‘Gulabi Nagar’ of Rajasthan, Jaipur attracts tourists towards its gargantuan forts, marvelously built palaces, lively market of handicraft products and intricately carved out temples. The sprinkling beauty, the edifices, big havelis and stupendous sky-touching forts of Jaipur attract the tourists immensely. Jaipur is the only city in the world which has been built as per India’s Vaastu Shastra and segmented as per astrology. 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. Its nine rectangular sectors represent nine levels of universe. A boundary wall with eight gates surrounds the city.

Samode

Samode, a small hamlet near Jaipur and inhabited by craftsmen, is a prime attraction for those tourists who intend to enjoy watching one of the best kept palaces and living in exotic and luxurious heritage stay. Samode, an erstwhile principality of Jaipur and now-a-days a small village town, is famous for being on tourist map of Rajasthan. Samode is visited by the tourists to watch Samode Palace, Samode Haveli and Samode Bag. Samode Palace is the prime attraction of Samode. The historical features and architectural niceties are very carefully and painstakingly maintained. Samode Palace has been converted by the royal family into a luxurious heritage hotel. Stay in Samode Palace hotel makes a tourist/ visitor feel as if he has come into an oasis amidst arid and desert landscape of Rajasthan

Amritsar

Amritsar is capital city of Punjab province of India. The Sikh faith came into being in Punjab. To the Hindus and Sikhs, Amritsar is synonymous with the holiest shrine of Sikhism, the Harmandir Sahib of Golden Temple. It calls to the devotee in all corners of the world. A double- storey marble structure, its dome is covered with gold, as indeed are those of many Sikh temples (gurdwaras) all over the country. This is due to the devotion of the people for whom offering a part of their earnings is very important. Manual labour or 'Karseva' is another very important offering. It may be in the form of sweeping and washing the temple premises, cooking or actually bricklaying and building the Place.
