Day 2 Delhi City Tour
After western style morning breakfast at hotel Your city tour begins with the Birla House
followed by a tour of the fabled Lal Quila, the historic Red Fort, which entirely reflects
the grand but stultifying court etiquette of Shah Jehan. The white Pearl Mosque, the
Mothi Masjid, built in the early 17th century, is a jewel of perfect proportions. In the
Diwan-I-Khas (the Hall of Private Audience), the most important decisions were made,
the most dazzling festivities were held, and the most tragic events devolved. Listening to
music, candlelight playing on the jewel-inlaid silver ceilings and silk brocades, Shah
Jehan is resported as rhapsodizing: “Ifg on earth there is a paradise of bliss- it is this! Oh,
it is this!” In the afternoon we delve in to Old Delhi, a teeming warren of tiny streets and
twisted lances where one can still glimpse remnants of faded glory on once elegant
buildings of a bygone era. Small craft shops abound, chock full of “bling”- wildly
fanciful silks, embroideries, silver and gold artifacts, gems (real and fake) and Mad
decorations- all for practically nothing. Returning to the Hotel stop for a visit at the tombs
of Humanyun and Khan-Khanan, the most important early Mughal monument in
Delhi. The mosque Quila-I-Kuhna Masjid survives as a magnificent example of India
Islamic architecture fine arches, elaborate decoration and a favorite favorite façade of
black and white marble on red sandstone.

Day 4 Agra – Jaipur 250 Km and drive time 6 Hrs
Another magical viewing come at dawn. In the early hours we enter the great gates and
catch a breathtaking sight of the rising sun as it warms the pristine marble domes, and in
the rosy mist it seems as though the entire jewel like monument is floating on the lake of
light. After breakfast back at the hotel we leave for Jaipur, driving through vibrant
Rajasthani villages, Passing through this colorful countryside we witness scenes that are
the same today as they were 2000 year ago – a wedding procession perhaps, a village fair,
or a simple gathering of gaily clad women gossiping at a water fountain. In the fields we
glimpse brightly turbaned men driving the oxen and plough and women threshing grain
or sowing seeds. Their gold adornments flash in the sun, and they seem like a flock of
bejeweled birds with their brilliant saris billowing in the soft breeze. On the way stop at
Fatehpursikri magical Ghost city Mughal Palace. Build by Emperor Akbar in 1597. this
glorious complex stands today unchanged, the elaborately carved sandstone and marble
as crisp as it was 400 years ago, still exemplifying the atmosphere of Akbar’s cultured
and enlightened court. Adjoining Diwane-I-Am (Hall of Public) is the Parchesi
Courtyard where Akbar’s Ladies frolicked as playing pieces on the outsize checkerboard.

Day 5 Jaipur city Tour
There is much to see in and around the Jaipur city and one of the most pleasant
excursions is the visit ot the old fort city of Amber. Past hills whose every peak is
fortified we drive between narrow cliffs of wild bouganvillia flower to the palace that
seems to grow out of the rocky hill rising above Maona Lake, the former capital of the
extensive Jaipur state. An elephant ride bnrings us to the impressive courtyard of the
fortress Palace of Amber. The bejeweled interior increases in richness as the small rooms
rise along decorated passageways finally reaching the exquisite Sheesh Mahal, the Hall
of Mirrors. There is not an inch of this fairytale palace that is not covered with paintings,
carvings, silver and gold ornaments, stained glass, mother of pearls inlays and marble
intarsia everything your eye alights upon in spangled and shimmering in the golden
Indian light! After lunch we tour the City Palace Complex one of the most daring and
successful synthesis of Mughal and Rajput styles according to the Baroda Maharja of.
Driving through the city we marvel at the Hawa Mahal, the Palace fo the winds, the
improbable fretted five story building only one room deep where the royal women in
Purdah could watch the world go by from 593 niches and woindows without the world
seeing them. We continue with a tour of the Jantar Mantar Royal Observatory, the
Govind Temple and the Central Museum.

Jaisalmer, the Golden City in the the Sand, shimmering like a Thousand and one night

colored sand dunes on a wild black hourse.
