Agra - “The Land of Taj” was once the capital of the Mughal Empire and even today it seems to linger in the past.

In more recent times Agra came into prominence when Sikandar Lodi made it his capital city in 1501. Later it passed into the possession of the Mughals. It was during the time of the third emperor “Akbar” that Agra came into its own and later on his grandson “Shah Jehan” ornamented the city with that masterpiece of Mughal architecture - The Taj Mahal.

Early morning game safari at Ranthambore National Park. Return to the hotel for a leisurely breakfast and later drive to the Pink city of Rajasthan - Jaipur (195 kms/3½ hrs.).

Jaipur- Jaipur is an exuberance of colour, dance, and song with the traditional arts and crafts. It's one of India's most well planned cities, with wide, straight avenues, roads, streets and lanes in a grid system. The great warrior/astronomer Maharaja Jai Singh II carefully planned Jaipur's foundation. Laid out in the 18th century, its design followed specifications from an epochal Hindu treatise on architecture.

This "Pink City," so called because its buildings are painted in the tones of an autumnal sunset, intersperses the play of red and pink with white borders and motifs. The royal family's residence at Amber is only 11 km away. The palaces and forts of yesteryear, once witness to royal processions, now shine amid the splendor of modern monuments, juxtaposition accepted quite naturally into the lifestyles of an amazing people.

Upon arrival in Jaipur, check in to your hotel and rest of the day at leisure. Overnight in Jaipur.

Day 07: Jaipur

This morning, you are collected from your hotel for a city tour of Jaipur.

Visit the Hawa Mahal or "Palace of Winds,” one of the major landmarks of Jaipur, although it is actually little more than a façade. The five-story building was originally built to enable the ladies of the royal household to watch the everyday life and processions of the city.

The City Palace, located in the heart of the old city, is a large complex of courtyards, buildings, and gardens, and also houses an interesting museum.
