Old Delhi

5

The Treasures of Old Delhi

The seat of the glorious Mughal Empire, the bazaars of old Delhi teem with heritage, old-world charm and historical significance.

A private guided tour of the amazing Chandni Chowk, the oldest and busiest bazaar in old Delhi, with a well-informed historian is an absolute must. Getting around the crowded alleys and streets in a rickshaw like a Delhiite is also an interesting experience.

Luxury Shopping

6

Luxury Shopping in Jaipur

Jaipur is one of India’s finest luxury shopping destinations. Also known as “Gemstone City”, Jaipur is the biggest center of gold jewelry and precious gemstones like rubies, sapphires and emeralds.

We recommended the Johari Bazaar for jewelry, Chandpol Bazaar for ethnic art pieces and handicrafts, Tripolia Bazaar for its famed bangles, Bapu Bazaar for leatherware and Nehru Bazaar for traditional Rajasthani garments.

Take time out to visit the uber posh Gyan Museum, a signature concept store that houses 2,500 unique pieces of Rajasthani art spanning over 3000 years and the Gem Palace, described by Vogue magazine as the “world’s most exceptional High Jewelry ateliers.”

Fatehpur Sikri

35 km from the city center in Agra lies the ancient city of Fatehpur Sikri which was founded by the Mughal Emperor Akbar the Great and later abandoned in favor of Agra and Delhi.

With such stunning marvels as the Buland Darwaza, Jodha Bai’s Palace and Panch Mahal, the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Itmad

Visit Itmad-ud-Daulah

(The Baby Taj)

The Baby Taj in Agra is a wonderful fusion of Islamic architecture with traditional Indian architecture.

Built by Empress Nur Jehan for her parents – Mirza Gyas Beg and Asmat Begum, it is also considered to be the precursor building for the Taj Mahal.

Built in the early 17th century, Itmad-ud-daulah is a fine example of Mughal architecture and the first building built in White Marble; it is a must-visit for any architecture enthusiast.

Private Photoshoot

As the most visited tourist attraction in India, the Taj Mahal is swarmed by tens of thousands of tourists any time of a given day.

That is why you will appreciate our bespoke arrangements for a private photoshoot at the Taj.

Nahargarh

10

Sunset Bliss at Nahargarh Fort

Overlooking the city of Jaipur from its perch in the Aravalli Hills, Nahargarh Fort is one of Rajasthan’s most iconic forts which formed a ring of defensive formations around the city along with the Jaigarh Fort and the Amer Fort.

Enjoy a bird’s eye sunset view of the city of Jaipur from the hill fort at Nahargarh.

Bazars

Dining in Haveli

12

Dining in a Historic Haveli

Check into a historic mansion (haveli), India’s answer to European castles, and enjoy a sumptuous dining experience in our heritage offerings at Jaipur.

These havelis, now restored to their original glory, house some of the finest luxury and boutique hotels that give you a taste of the lives of the Maharajas.

We particularly recommend our partners the Samode Haveli and Jai Mahal Palace in Jaipur and Haveli Dharampura in Delhi.

Abhaneri

13

Visit the Abhaneri Stewells

The Chand Baori at Abhaneri village which dates back to the 8th century AD is one of the finest examples of the water reservoirs built by the Maharajas in the arid regions of  Rajasthan.

With 3500 steps to the bottom of the well it also housed the summer resting chambers of the Royalty to escape from the scorching heat of the India summers.

It is also a perfect stop to break the journey between Agra and Jaipur.

14

Hot Air Balloon Ride in Jaipur

One fun tourist activity in Rajasthan is the hot air balloon ride —available at Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur and Jaisalmer —which gives you panoramic views from the sky of the beautiful landscape of these enchanting cities and the sand dunes of the Thar Desert surrounding them.

Blissful Spa

15

Blissful Spa Experience

A luxury treat you should not miss out on in India is a spa experience at an exquisite resort where a variety of Indian Ayurveda and contemporary European therapies and treatments are offered.

We recommend the Oberoi Rajvilas in Jaipur, a sprawling resort that features manicured gardens, Rajasthan-style fountains, reflecting pools, flaming Mashaal Rajput-styled torches and uber-luxury.

Another world-class pampering resort is the ITC Mughal in Agra, a Mughal-inspired luxury resort offering a range of therapies

Museums

16

Explore the Museums of Delhi

The National Museum of India in New Delhi is the largest in the country with a collection of over 200 thousand objects that cover 5 millennia of Indian history.

The National Gandhi Museum showcases the life and achievements of Mahatma Gandhi, and the Gandhi Smriti Museum is the Mahatma spent his last days and was assassinated— provides first-hand insights into the life of the great leader.

The National Handicrafts and Handloom Museum puts together the largest collection of crafts and ethnic art pieces, another museum worth a stop is The National Rail Museum.

Cultural

17

Cultural Extravaganza

The kings of the Rajputana region were great patrons of music, dance, and performance arts. Their palaces hosted extravagant galas featuring local music and dance performances.

We recommend that you attend a classical music and dance performance at Jaipur’s historic city palace, the erstwhile seat of power and primary residence of the royalty of Jaipur and watch a traditional Rajasthani Puppet show called “Kathputli” performed by the Bhat community who have been associated with this art form for centuries.

Another entertaining immersion is to witness the snake-charming nomad community called Kalbelias put on a show with their Cobras and vipers.
