The Ganges Punjab Rajasthan The Taj

 

Description

The National Capital Delhi welcomes you and sets you on the package with the blessings of Holy Ganges at Haridwar & Rishikesh; we move into the Punjab, the Land of Food & Milk, first at Chandigarh, the capital of two states - Punjab & Haryana and yet, a Union Territory of India - a modern social environment; and then we move on to Amritsar to observe the historical and magnificent Golden Temple, get familiarized with the Sikhism. We further move our journey to the Thar desert i.e., Bikaner (Rajasthan) and get to know the desert culture and life-style of today. Now we enter Jaisalmer, to watch the Golden Fort, UNESCO World Heritage Site; we experience to live in desert first hand and see what camel ride is. The eats & drinks of Rajasthan are tried and tasted. Further, Jodhpur welcomes with its forts, bluish buildings and sort of royal living. The Pink City, Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan offers so much to elaborate the desert life, heritage and culture with a touch of modernity now. Hmmm. We continue our journey to Fatehpur Sikri (the Abandoned City) and the Taj Mahal at Agra. The Taj, a unique mausoleum remains a UNESCO World Heritage Site with great reason & logic. Finally, we are back in the lap of the National Capital Delhi. Well. You know for sure now that you have experienced a meaningful, practically spiritual and of course, wonderful tour.


ARRIVAL AT DELHI  

BEFORE WE START WE WISH TO EMPHASIZE THAT THE DETAILS OF SITES OR PLACES IN OUR TOURS DO NOT REMAIN RESTRICTED OR CONCLUSIVE. ON THE CONTRARY WE MEET MUCH MORE IN OUR WAY TO OUR DESTINATIONS.

We welcome you at the Indira Gandhi International Airport and escort you to the selected hotel for an overnight stay. 

DELHI TO HARIDWAR AND RISHIKESH

Good Morning, Delhi !

We start for the famous junction of the Ganges, the Haridwar (Entrance towards God / Hari). The sacred river that crosses the north of India becomes holy especially with Hindu rituals & rites at Haridwar and Rishikesh. It seems an obvious joiner to the mysticism.
Haridwar is one of the four pilgrimage places of the magnificent, mysterious Kumbh Mela over the period of 12 years, i.e., every four years the pilgrimage place is changed among the four definite pilgrimage places. 
Thousands of people from all over the world come here to trace, add and improve entries in their family-tree records that have been preserved for hundreds of years by the designated priests. This phenomenon remains peculiar and somewhat bizarre too.
In the evening we are ready to watch the unique Aarti at Har ki Pauri that is fire worship devoted to Lord Shiva, Mother Ganga and the powers of the Universe.
Overnight stay at hotel.

HARIDWAR > RISHIKESH > HARIDWAR

Har Har Gange ! (Good Morning of the Haridwar !)

We start for Rishikesh.

We dedicate the day to know Rishikesh, known as the City of the Divine. 
This is a center for yoga and meditation and temples and ashrams are meant for the purpose. The Beatles stayed here for a yoga training in February 1968 and made it famous for foreigners, but Rishikesh has been a pilgrimage and spiritual retirement for centuries. You will see dozens of ashrams where you can practice the meditation and the different branches of yoga. An experience of being in the lap of Mother Nature. 
The nuclei of Laxman Jhula and Ram Jhula are articulated around two large suspension bridges over the Ganges.
Parmarth Gurukul / Niketan at Rishikesh is something unique in itself; it seems we are living our lives thousands of years ago in India; but, wait ! Life with a modern touch – that’s it ! 

We come back to Haridwar before night. 

Overnight stay at hotel.

HARIDWAR TO CHANDIGARH

Good Morning, Haridwar ! We get the blessings from the Ganges and leave for Chandigarh, the capital of Punjab and Haryana, and yet, a Union Territory of India.

Chandigarh is an example of the modernizing desires of Independent India. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru commissioned Le Corbusier to design a city that would demonstrate the will & desires of the young Republic to bet on development and rationality. Chandigarh is a superfine experiment with its rationalist urbanism, its landscaped areas and its concrete architecture, and the locals claim that it is a great place to live in. It's worth a visit to the Rock Garden and the Rose Garden.
Overnight stay at hotel.

CHANDIGARH TO AMRITSAR

Welcome to the Land of Food & Milk, the Punjab. Origin of Sikhism and we will take you to one of the five highest seats of the Sikhism, the Golden Temple – the Akal Takht (the Seat unaffected by the time). The Golden Temple has been nurturing & nourishing the traditions with a modern touch of science & technology.  There are more sights in Amritsar that would fascinate you.

Overnight stay at hotel.

AMRITSAR

Good Morning, Punjab !

Amritsar is the home to the historical Golden Temple (one of the five highest seats of the Sikhs), Durgiana Temple (similar architecture to that of the Golden Temple), and Ram Bagh Gardens (Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s residence for summer), Jallianwala Bagh (a historical spot of one of the most infamous massacres in the India’s War of Freedom) and the Wagha Border between India & Pakistan – famous for its daily ceremony. And obviously, all these sites will be visited during the course of the day. 
The typical offering by the devotees at the Golden Temple remains a sweet semolina including syrup (the Karrah Prashad) which is made holy & pure by the cut & touch of the Kirpaan (a small dagger) at the Hari Mandir Sahib (Golden Temple). 

Overnight stay at hotel.

AMRITSAR TO BIKANER

Good Morning, Amritsar ! / Sat Sri Akal !

Time to leave Punjab and enter the Thar desert (Rajasthan). The journey replaces the green fields full of canals and great rivers of Punjab with camels, dusty landscapes and picturesque sight of women with large anklets walking & driving the flocks – of Rajasthan, one of the most visited states in India.

Overnight stay at hotel.

BIKANER

The tour to Bikaner will take us to the wonderful Junagarh Fort, Deshnoke Temple (the Karni Mata Mandir) and a Camel Breeding / Research Farm. The Karni Mata Mandir has been unique with its bizarre pattern of worshipping mice / rats. 
Overnight stay at hotel.

BIKANER TO JAISALMER

We will start the day driving to Jaisalmer – The Citadel City. 
Jaisalmer is a former medieval trading center in the heart of the Thar Desert. Known as the "Golden City," it's distinguished by its yellow sandstone architecture. This is a city worth watching and enjoying in a relaxed mood & walk. The social environment of the city will make us feel in the times of camel caravans. 
Overnight at hotel.

JAISALMER

The Jaisalmer Fort is one of the total six forts of Rajasthan that have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Good Morning, Jaisalmer !
Our city tour will cover Jaisalmer Fort (Sonar Quila, the Golden Fort), built on the highest point of the Trikuta Hill, the Sun Gate. Outstanding features of the citadel are Megh Durbar and its various temples. Out of the walls we find the Salim Singh-Ki-Haveli & Patwon–Ki-Haveli, some of the most beautiful grand mansions with stone carving and lattice work of breathtaking intricacy and the Lodurva / Lodhurva village with masterpieces of architectural grandeur. In the evening we visit Sand Dunes of Khuri. The ripples on the wind caressed dunes create enchanting mirages. Adventure freaks can go out on a camel safari getting the real feel of the desert on the camel back. 
 If you like the spicy food, you may try Gatta Curry, the most famous dish of Jaisalmer.

Overnight stay at hotel.

JAISALMER TO JODHPUR

Good Morning, Jaisalmer !

We take our breakfast and leave for Jodhpur. 

Distinguished unique by the Mehrangarh fort, unsurpassed in beauty & grandeur, there is no exaggeration in Rudyard Kipling describing the fort as “A Palace that might have been built by Titans and colored by the morning sun”. Jodhpur is famous for the blue color of many of its houses. The Fort, one of the biggest in India has innumerable palaces, interspersed with sprawling courtyards, and is intricately carved. Jaswant Thada / Jaswanthada, the 19th century royal cenotaph, a creation in white marble, and the Clock Tower are other spots that remain worth a visit. 
Overnight stay at hotel.

JODHPUR TO JAIPUR

Good Morning, Jodhpur !

We prepare ourselves for a little long journey towards Jaipur.

JAIPUR

Day for sightseeing the Pink City, capital of Rajasthan. Sightseeing Jaipur remains fascinating with the people around and their lifestyle. Hard working men and women in their historical-cum-traditional dresses, lurching carts drawn by camels and their pleasant lovely nature to interact with outsiders / foreigners remain unparalleled. Graceful women in swirling skirts and veils of red, yellow, orange and magenta, laden with silver jewelry, straight tall men in turbans are a fascinating sight of the heritage here. You love to walk on foot, ride in rickshaws, cars, vans or buses to City Palace Museum, Jaipur Observatory – Jantar Mantar, Palace of Winds – Hawa Mahal and visit Amer Fort on elephant-back. 
Overnight stay at hotel.

JAIPUR TO FATEHPUR SIKRI AND AGRA (UTTAR PRADESH)

Good Morning, Jaipur !
Departure from Jaipur towards Agra. Halfway, stop at the Abandoned City of Fatehpur Sikri, the Palace Complex that Emperor Akbar had built as a new capital for the Mughal Empire. But he abandoned the city because of the tasks in the Punjab and as a few historians claim, due to scarcity of water supply. The whole complex is built of red sandstone with the most elegant carvings. We will continue to Agra. The unique Taj Mahal, the culminated article in Mughal architecture, was built between 1631 and 1658 by Emperor Shah Jahan to house the tomb of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. 
Overnight stay at hotel.

AGRA TO DELHI

We visit the Fort of Agra, the markets and bazaars of the city and the Great Mosque. Lunch in Agra and we start for Delhi. 

Delhi : We may have some time to visit the Lotus Temple or we can be at Hauz Khas Village, center of designers, artists, musicians and bohemians. 

Time to rest a little at hotel. And prepare the luggage for the flight back home.

DELHI
Transit to the airport is already arranged.

We bid a sweet goodbye at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi – you embrace the finest experience & memories and leave for your home.

End of our services.
