This is your Gateway to India. Delhi, the bustling capital of India. A city of contrasts, wide tree lined avenues of the diplomatic enclave of New Delhi, street vendors jostling the narrow winding lanes in Old Delhi, the experience is startling. Taj Mahal, an Emperor’s devotion for his beloved queen. Lofty forts and palaces of Jaipur. Gems, jewels and handicrafts, India is a shopper’s paradise. A intrepid traveler’s dream destination.

The city, situated on the west bank of river the Yamuna, is known world over as home to a wonder of the world, Taj Mahal. For most of the time Agra alternated with Delhi as the capital of the Mughal Empire. As such one finds many marvels of the Mughal architecture in and around the city, the most famous of them being the Taj Mahal. Besides the Taj, the Agra Fort (also called the Red Fort) makes an interesting sight.

Ranthambhore Park was established as a sanctuary in 1959 and included in the first phase of Project Tiger in 1972. In 1981, Ranthambhore was awarded the status of a National Park.The park derives its name from the 11th century fort of Ranthambhore, which sits on a rocky outcrop in the forest. The fort was a vital citadel for the control of central India. Though overrun by vegetation, remnants of the summer palaces, temples within the fort still remain. Earlier the hunting reserve of the Maharajas of Jaipur, the park was once the scene of royal hunting parties. Today, it is famous for its tigers and is one of the best places in the country to see these majestic predators in the wild.

Jaipur is a city where royalty still lives in the grandeur of its palaces, where fighting for the honour of the clan has never been a need but a way of life, and where treating guests as gods has been a tradition from time immemorial. Jaipur got its name from its founder Sawai Jai Singh (1693-1743), who had the vision to create a meticulously planned city as his capital. All the houses in the old city are painted pink, including the famous Hawa Mahal, thereby giving the city its alternative name, the Pink City.
