The former capital of the powerful rulers of the Mughal dynasty, it boasts of a plethora of impressive monuments. We begin with a visit to the massive Red Fort built by Shah Jahan in 1648 A.D., then explore the fascinating, colorful Chandni Chowk market by cycle-rickshaw and arrive at Jama Masjid. Believed to be the largest mosque in India, this imposing monument offers a bird’s eye view of Delhi from the top of its 40m high minarets. It was the last of Shah Jahan’s magnificent architectural constructions (1658 A.D.).

Considered to be the precursor of the Taj Mahal, it is the earliest example of Mughal architecture in India.

On your way back to your hotel, you will drive through New Delhi, which came into existence much later and is also known as Lutyens’ Delhi. Named after Edwin Lutyens, the British architect who was largely responsible for designing the India Gate (memorial to the martyrs of World War I), Rashtrapati Bhavan (Presidential House), the Secretariat, the Parliament House and many other government buildings.

Ranthambore National Park, is one of the prime tiger habitats in India. Strategically situated at the confluence of two major hill ranges, namely the Vindhyas and the Aravallis, it was declared a Wildlife Sanctuary in 1957. In 1974 it gained the protection of “Project Tiger” and seven years later i.e. in 1981, it got its present status of a National Park. The Ranthambore National Park is one of the most picturesque Parks in India.This is because the forest is interspersed with ruins of historic monuments that are reminiscent of a bygone era. A major feature of the Park is the impressive Ranthambore Fort, located on the fringes of the Park and providing an excellent bird’s eye view of the entire forest below.

Spread over an area of 1,334 sq. kilometers and dominated by thorny or scrub forest with a few patches of thick deciduous forest, the majority of the wildlife is concentrated around three major lakes. These lakes, namely the Rajbagh, Padam Talao and Madan Talao, are all man-made lakes which carry water even during the hot summers. This varied flora supports a large number of animals including a variety of deer, the sloth bear, the shy caracal,a modest number of snub-nosed crocodiles,the striped hyena,wild boar,leopards and of course “the big cat”, the tiger.
