After that, drive about 4 hours to Agra. Hotel check-in and have the rest of the day at leisure.B Agra
Day 4: Taj Mahal at Sunrise & Agra Fort
Visit the Taj Mahal at sunrise when the early morning light turns the dome of the ivory-white marble mausoleum a soft, golden color. So beautiful and so perfect no matter what angle you look at it from!
Return to the hotel for breakfast and refreshments. Later on, set out for Agra Fort, a large 16th-century fortress of red sandstone. As the main residence of the Mughal emperors, it remains numerous impressive structures that showcase the real complexity and workmanship of Mughal architecture. Round off at Itmad-ud-daulah, sometimes called the "Baby Taj".B Agra
Day 5: Agra - Jaipur (About 5 Hours' Drive)
Leave Agra behind for Jaipur, the "Pink City in India".
Fatehpur Sikri on the way between Agra and Jaipur is worth a visit. It was founded as the capital of the Mughal Empire in 1571 and abandoned several years later due to water shortages. Walking into this ghost town with a local guide, you will get a deep understanding of the Mughal culture and history. You can also make a photo stop at Abhaneri Step Well at an extra cost.B Jaipur
Day 6: Explore Pink City of Jaipur
Visit Amber Fort in the morning. Just 11 km away from downtown Jaipur, it is well-known for its artistic architectural style with a blend of both Hindu and Rajput features. A must-see in the fort is the Sheesh Mahal, known as the Hall of Mirrors since the walls and ceilings are decorated with tiny mirror pieces that are cut at angles to make a beautiful design.
Return to the downtown and visit Hawa Mahal, also called the Palace of Winds, with a fancy pink facade dotted with numerous windows. Inside, you can stand behind its windows to secretly enjoy the hustle and bustle of the streets below, as the royal ladies once did. Visit the City Palace and Jantar Mantar afterward.B Jaipur
