      En route, visit the magnificent Itmad-ud-Daulah's Tomb, popularly known as the 'Baby Taj'. Filled with gardens, mini structures and heritage monuments, this elegant tomb built by Empress Noor Jahan for her father is the first structure of its kind to be constructed of pure marble in Mughal India - said to be a perfect draft of the iconic Taj Mahal.

    Agra
    • Discover the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort.

      After a sumptuous breakfast visit the Taj - the epitome of marvellous Mughal architecture. Celebrated for its structural magnificence and aesthetic beauty, partake in the poetry of the beautiful Taj and the lost love stories that surround the mausoleum, as it sits reminiscing by the gurgling Yamuna. A symphony in white marble, this is truly a tribute to eternal love.

      In order to protect the Taj Mahal from vehicular pollution, tourist vehicles are allowed only up to the designated parking zone, which is a short distance away from the entrance. Here on wards, we are expected to board battery operated vehicles (golf cart / bus) to reach the main entrance of the Taj and back.

      We now head off to Agra Fort, an outstanding example of Mughal art and architecture. An impregnable military structure built by Akbar, the Agra Fort luxuriated with the elegance, lavishness and majesty of an imperial palace. Relive the era as you step into the seat of power and the stronghold of the Mughal Empire. Absorb the glory of this imposing, red sandstone structure, as you cruise conveniently through its palaces, pavilions and courtyards.

      Make a stop at the deserted fort of Fatehpur Sikri, a brilliant fusion of Hindu and Mughal architecture. Located just 40 km from Agra, it is an enchanting folly that changed the landscape of the region, a mesmerising capital city built by Akbar in honour of a Sufi Saint Sheikh Salim Chisti only to be deserted within 14 years to fall to slow, poetic ruin.

      On arrival in Jaipur, proceed to check in at your hotel.

      The journey now continues on to the ancient Amber Palace Fort. Perched atop a ridge just outside Jaipur city, Amber Palace Fort is surrounded by fortified battlements, overlooking the Maota Lake. Built in the 17th century, it was once the seat of power before the birth of the Jaipur's City Palace. Today, it stands as a silent spectator to a bygone era, overlooking the ruins and sprawling crenulated wallsspread over the Aravalli.

      Within the complex, see the Ganesh Pol, an awe-inspiring gateway painted with beautiful images of the elephant-headed god, Ganesh. You will not help but notice, as you walk through the halls of the princes, the merging of Rajput and Mughal architectural styles making its way into the apartments, gardens and landscaping of the palace.
