Day 1-2

Indian capital, Delhi, Lodi gardens

We arrive in Delhi, check into a hotel in the central Paharganj district. After some rest let`s walk out to the bustling streets of the Indian capital in search of the most delicious lassi. We will have lunch in the heart of Old Delhi, in a colorful Muslim cafe, known for their perfect Afghan-style chicken and bread in a clay oven.

Next, we head to New Delhi to enjoy the peace and coolness in the Lodi gardens. This city park is the favorite place of couples. Also, it is the place where the grand tombs of the rulers of the 15th century are located.

Day 3

The main mosque of India, Red Fort, Lotus Temple, Light show in Old Fortress

In the morning we go to the Red Fort and the main mosque of India - Jama Masjid. These iconic sights are located in the heart of old Delhi and are surrounded by a huge bustling bazaar, which has been located on this place for hundreds of years. Mind your feet but do not forget to look around!

Moving on to newer, but equally well-known places, we will visit the famous Lotus Temple of the Bahai faith, a teaching that preaches the unity of all religions. Built in 1986 in the form of a lotus flower, it is considered a house of prayer for believers of all religions. Reading sacred books or ceremonies are not welcome here, but visitors can go inside for a short meditation, or a silent prayer.

Just nearby a very colorful Hindu temple - Kalkaji is located. Here we will see the ancient images of the Indian goddess Kali and ceremonies. In the evening, we will watch the light show in the Old Fortress, learning more about very rich history of Delhi.

Day 4-5

Jaipur, Amer and Jaigarh forts, Hawa Mahal palace, A trip to the cinema

In the morning we take a train to Jaipur (4 hours on the way). Our hotel is located in Hathroi district where we will rest before heading to the grand fort of Amer. The old Amer city is spread around the fortress. Life on these narrow streets is very serene and has not changed much over the past hundreds of years. But the grand fort is one of the main tourist attractions of India!..

Next, we move on to no less impressive fort of Jaigarh. Built in 1726 it served as residence for the raja and his family. The views from these walls are stunning! We return to Jaipur and explore the narrow streets of the Pink City. Walk inside the famous Palace of Winds to see the bustling streets below from behind the latticework of the windows, like the women from the Rajah’s family did just just decades ago.

The Raja's palace is just a stone`s throw away from here. Large parts of this palace are  closed for the public because the family of the last Rajah of Jaipur still lives here! Let`s enjoy the sunset on top of the hill overlooking the city, and head to the famous cinema for the latest Bollywood film. Indian cinema has changed a lot since our grandmothers!
