Delhi & Agra

Delhi is sprinkled with captivating ancient monuments, magnificent museums and is steeped in a glorious, but turbulent history. Both as a gateway to the country and seat of its political power it provides an intoxicating mix of the ancient and the modern, reflected in its two parts:  Old Delhi, the Muslim capital of India, a walled city with narrow alleys, mosques, temples and bazaars dating back to the 12th century; and New Delhi, the city created in 1911 to be the British capital with the grand Lutyens-designed government buildings, the majestic India Gate memorial and the thriving hub of Connaught Circus. 

In Agra the imposing red sandstone walls of Agra Fort dominate the city that is home to India's most exciting destination, the Taj Mahal.  Its pristine beauty is unparalleled and the more you look at it the more it captivates you.  A visit to Delhi, India's capital city, and Agra, the royal city of the Taj Mahal, go hand in hand.
