The Golden Triangle of India consists of three cities that make a triangle on a map: Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. This famous triangle is considered “golden” because of the wealth of landscapes found in this small area as well as the historically and culturally important sites found within.
India has a dense population of over 1.2 billion, so everywhere you go will feel a little frenzied. For example: 4 lanes of traffic squeezed into only 3 lanes, vendors selling wares in the middle of the street, and cows and pigs roaming freely through the towns. However, experiencing all of this is part of the fun and creates a sense of adventure.
If you book a tour to the Golden Triangle, chances are you will experience most of the things below, but if you don’t they are worth seeking out on your own.
