Cities

Arrival in Delhi

Exploring the blend of old and new can be a fascinating and rewarding experience. Old Delhi still contains legacies of its rich Mughal past that can be found among the old city’s tangle of snaking lanes and teeming bazaars. Whereas New Delhi is completely different with lifestyle and city’s architecture having the influence of British Rule in India.

Agra

Located at the banks of River Yamuna, Agra offers the richest of the man made beauties including three UNESCO World Heritage Sites – Agra forts, Fatehpur Sikhri and Taj Mahal. It is the haven of Mughal art, culture and architecture.

Jaipur

Jaipur, Capital of Rajasthan (India) is also known as the Pink City because of its pink coloured buildings in the walled city. The city is famous for its beautiful jewelry, fabrics, shoes also known as mojari, specious gardens and various historical monuments.

Jodhpur

Jodhpur, is the second largest city in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It is located 335 kilometres west from the state capital, Jaipur and 200 kilometres from the city of Ajmer.

Udaipur

Udaipur, also known as the City of Lakes. Udaipur was founded in 1559 by Maharana Udai Singh II as the final capital of the erstwhile Mewar kingdom, located to the southwest of Nagda, on the Banas River, the first capital of the Mewar kingdom. Legend has it that Maharana Udai Singh II came upon a hermit while hunting in the foothills of the Aravalli Range. The hermit blessed the king and asked him to build a palace on the spot, assuring him it would be well protected. Udai Singh II consequently established a residence on the site. In 1568, the Mughal emperor Akbar captured the fort of Chittor, and Udai Singh moved the capital to the site of his residence, which became the city of Udaipur.

Cochin

Kochi (colonial name Cochin) is a vibrant city situated on the south-west coast of the Indian peninsula in the breathtakingly scenic and prosperous state of Kerala, hailed as ‘God’s Own Country‘. Its strategic importance over the centuries is underlined by the sobriquet Queen of the Arabian Sea. Informally, Cochin is also referred to as the Gateway to Kerala.
