Begin your Golden Triangle tour visiting the largest mosque in India, and one of Delhi's most beautiful religious sites: Jama Masjid, or the Friday Mosque. Admire its façade before heading on to the memorial built for Mahatma Gandhi at Raj Ghat, and seeing the city's governmental hub on the ceremonial Rajpath boulevard.
In the afternoon, you'll see the Sikh gurudwara, or temple, before visiting the Qutub Minar. At a height of 240 feet (70 metres), it is the tallest brick minaret in the world, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Having explored the best of Delhi's historic and cultural sights, enjoy a delicious meal back at the hotel and an evening at your leisure.
