It bears the names of 85,000 Indian army soldiers, who died in the campaigns of WWI. You will drive past Rashtrapati Bhawan - this palace-like building is the official residence of the President of India and an interesting blend of Mughal and western architectural styles. Next see the Bahai Temple, or the Lotus Temple, a marvel of modern architecture, set among pools and gardens, adherents of any faith can visit, pray or meditate before joining your fellow tour members for a welcome dinner at the hotel.

After breakfast, start a city tour of Old Delhi visiting Raj Ghat (where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated); Red Fort (made famous by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan); and Jama Masjid (the largest mosque in India) which has three great gateways, four angle towers and two minarets constructed of alternating vertical strips of red sandstone and white marble. Next visit Chandni Chowk, the main street of Old Delhi in the colourful shopping bazaar where you will enjoy a colourful ride on a rickshaw!

After lunch, travel to Jaipur - the capital of Rajasthan. On arrival in Jaipur check-in to your hotel for the evening, where dinner will be provided. Jaipur is instantly recognisable for its pink-washed buildings, a colour associated with hospitality in Rajput culture. This beautiful city, along with Agra and Delhi, form what is known as the Golden Triangle of India's tourist circuit.

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. There is a timeless appeal to Jaipur's colourful bazaars, where you can shop for Rajasthani textiles and trinkets. The beautifully laid out gardens and parks, attractive monuments and heritage hotels, once the residence of Maharajas, are all worth a look.

This afternoon take part in a city tour visiting the City Palace, the former royal residence built in a blend of the Rajasthani and Mughal styles. Jantar Mantar, is the largest of the five observatories built by Sawai Jai Singh.

Here lies the Taj Mahal one of the wonders of the world. So awe-inspiring is the monument that Agra has been immortalised as the City of the Taj. As visitors walk down the narrow bustling streets, they cannot help but wonder, if the man contentedly smoking a hookah, is a direct descendent of some bygone Mughal.

Enjoy an afternoon city tour visiting the Taj Mahal, built by the Moghul Emperor Shah Jahan in 1630 for his queen Mumtaz Mahal to enshrine her mortal remains. Enjoy the evening at leisure.

Optional Tour: Half Day Jeep safari in Minneriya National Park - $95 AUD per person
Experience an afternoon safari at Minneriya National Park. If you're up for a serious rumble in the jungle, then Minneriya is the place to go! Spread over 8800 hectares, it’s a sanctuary for elephants and home to herds of deer and ample birdlife, but its spotlight remains between swaying trunks and flapping ears. Park your jeep on the bank of the reservoir and switch off its engine. Have the opportunity to see herds of elephants - one by one - roll on to the grass-covered banks, to feed on tender shoots.
