A hearty and warm welcome awaits you!

Sure the crowded streets, incessant honking of horns, swerving motorbikes and rickshaws and the pell-mell of the motley traffic, where even cows compete for space may be a little overwhelming. But as you meander along the maze of streets with an enthusiasm to get lost, and as you ramble past colorful chaotic sprawl and bask in its captivating history and contemporary culture, you fill find that the energy and the vibe is unlike any other place in the world.

Day 4
Agra – Fatehpur Sikri – Jaipur (A fascinating cluster of arts and crafts)

Said to be one of the most elegant and a harmonious building in the world, Taj Mahal was built by Mughal Emperor Shahjahan in 1630 AD to enshrine the mortal remains of his beloved Queen Mumtaz Mahal. Taj Mahal manifests the wealth and luxury of Mughal art as seen in architecture and garden design, painting, and calligraphy.

Day 5
Jaipur (Extravagance in its monuments)

After breakfast, visit the sprawling Amer Fort. Jaipur’s Maharaja Man Singh, Mughal Emperor Akbar’s most successful General, started constructing Amer Fort in the 17th century. Before the City Palace was constructed in Jaipur, Amer was the seat of power. The Fort is surrounded by fortified battlements and overlooks the Moat Lake. Once you are on top, stroll through the sprawling complex of courtyards and halls. Many of the rooms have delightful wall paintings, with precious stones and mirrors inlaid in the walls. Most fascinating, perhaps, is the Sheesh Mahal (hall of mirrors) where a single lamplight is reflected in the many mirrors, lighting up the room.


Return to the city, with a photo-stop at Hawa Mahal (the Palace of Winds). Five stories in height, and built of red and pink sandstone highlighted with white quicklime, it is thought that the women of the royal harem used the many casements to observe everyday life in the street below without being seen.


Continue to Jantar Mantar, an observatory built by Sawai Jai Singh all in the 18th century. The Maharajah, a scientist as well as an astronomer, had the principles of Euclid translated into Sanskrit. One of the most remarkable sites in Jaipur, the Jantar Mantar has fourteen major geometric devices for measuring time, predicting eclipses and tracking stars and planets. Just next to the observatory is the City Palace. Built within the fortified area of the original city, it has one of the finest monumental entrances in India. The Palace is now principally a museum housing a collection of great treasures, including miniature paintings, carpets, royal garments and other interesting objects from Jaipur's intriguing past. The former royal family retains a part of the palace for their personal use.

Day 6
Jaipur - Varanasi (One of the oldest cities in the World)

Post breakfast, morning at leisure and later assisted transfer to the airport to catch flight towards the spiritual capital of India, Varanasi. This evening, visit the banks of the sacred Ganges for a special evening cruise on the Ganges River on country boats to see the devout Hindus performing the "Arti Puja" with lighted lamps. The presiding priests stand on a Chauki (wooden stand) near the water. To the chant of Sanskrit mantras, and the clash of cymbals and drums, the river is worshipped with flowers, incense, sandalwood, milk, and vermilion. First, the blazing camphor lamp and then the many flamed Aarti lamps are raised high and then arched back to the water, the dark river reflecting the golden flames as the Ganges accepts the worship. It is the Ganges that gives Varanasi its spiritual resonance.


Varanasi or Benares is the world’s oldest continually inhabited city; i.e. people still continue to live in this city even today, ever since its beginning. As Mark Twain rightly said - ‘’ Benares is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together.

Hotel Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner

Day 7
Varanasi (The holiest Hindu city)

A people to people experience Early this morning, take a boat ride and watch the wonderful colors of the sunrise as you meander along the sacred Ganges River. As part of their pilgrimage rites, the faithful walk down steps into the river to perform their religious ablutions. Watching the people worshipping at the Ghats is an extraordinary experience. You may also witness a funeral pyre, an essential part of the traditional Hindu funeral ceremony. You will always remember a walk along the Ghats or a boat ride on the river. Spend the day winding through the streets and popping out onto the riverside will give you an insider’s look at the symbiotic life of the riverside people of Varanasi. You have the possibility to visit Sarnath as a day excursion, as it is here that Buddism found its roots and Buddha gave his first sermon.


OPTIONAL: Death & Rebirth Night Walk Beginning Walk with us through the city of learning & burning and see Banaras when it is known as 'Mahashamstana', the great cremation ground of Shiva. It is here you will traverse from the land of the living to the houses of the dying. Perhaps an encounter with a black-clothed flesh-eating sadhu of the Aghor Ashram will give you a taste of death and rebirth!
