• Delhi, Agra and Jaipur: The Golden Triangle

EDVENTURE EXPLAINED

Why did we choose Delhi, Agra and Jaipur?

The Indian Golden Triangle is the only journey where you can look at three contrasting dynasties and kingdoms separated by time and distance. Delhi was home to the Delhi Sultanate (1206 – 1526) that paved the way for the Mughals (1526- 1857) who transitorily opted for Agra as their capital city and from whence the Mughal Dynasty flourished. And Jaipur, although built in the 1700s, is the epitome of the might and power of the Rajputana region that flourished from 7th – 12th century, and one that endured right up to the age of the British rule.

What does this journey offer?

Students understand contrasting histories of three different dynasties that flourished at different times in Indian history. Jaipur is the first planned city of India. Agra is perhaps the only place that offers a city-sized remnant from the Mughal era, a grand fort and the world’s grandest mausoleum complex, the Taj Mahal. The Qutb Minar in Delhi is the Sultanate’s celebration of its glory days; while Lutyen’s Delhi showcases lasting British influences from the peak of its colonial might.
