I never met a couple that didn’t have the Taj Mahal on their sights, If not on their honeymoon, Delhi-Agra is definitely on some wish list a must see for both partners. Many pass up the chance.

I never met a couple who didn’t have the Taj Mahal on their sights, If not on their honeymoon, Delhi-Agra is definitely on some wish list, a must see for both partners. Many pass up the chance. because they are not together to view the greatest gift of love from one spouse to another, now a world heritage, always one of the seven wonders of the world. This is the sort of feeling the Taj evokes in couples, so a honeymoon there could never hold a dull movement; nay, you are likely to be swamped by strong emotions.The weather is best post-winter, on the fringes of spring; summer will be hot. From New Delhi, we were booked on a flight to Agra that would hardly take 30 minutes. Always take mid-day or evening flights to Delhi. From there take the road to Agra. For one, the fog-bound Delhi airport keeps planes circling overhead in queue. Secondly, airlines often cancel the Agra flight that is scheduled on alternate days just past noon, due to inclement weather, and then offer you a bus ride to Agra or a full refund. Our advice: take the refund and go by road to Agra in a Toyota Qualis, for justRs.2500. Not only do you reach faster, but on the way you can take in Akbar’s tomb at Sikandra. Akbar of course was the last great emperor and more accomplished than his sons and grandsons. As tombs go Humayun’s tomb is the most impressive - some say more than the Taj, but albeit it lacks the romanticism and emotive nuances of the Taj Mahal, but that is another story. What we did however was to find a brand new Tata Indica driven by a cousin of the driver of our local autorickshaw


We were fortunate to be in Agra on full moon day, but viewing the Taj by night requires security clearance 48 hours before the event and prior booking.. Almost every name in hotel industry has a property in Agra, the Sheraton, Taj, Oberoi, but surprisingly one of the few places where industry sources promise a seven-star hotel must only be Agra. We stayed at the Jaypee Palace, a huge rambling property built of Redstone with a lawn as big as a football field. An outdoor dinner on the grass sounds crazy but with pots of red hot coal placed at intervals for people to close in around, the cold night was tolerable. Invariably there were bands playing and dancing was not only another way to keep out the cold but also get closer to each other.

Let’s go back to the capital city and for those who want to start their romantic foray there. In winters the afternoon is a good time to see the monuments, basking in the warmth of the sun, love and fresh air. Start with old Delhi visit the Red Fort, Jama Masjid, Raj Ghat and Humayun’s Tomb. The Qutub Minar and the iron pillar are in the same area nearer the airport. Return to the hotel for the night, spending wonderful moments together in total privacy. After an early breakfast drive to Agra. Talking of breakfast our hotel has the most elaborate fare laid out. Fruit juice is preferable to the coffee and tea, because here the South Indian decoction is missing, so is fresh milk, so we trek out of the palatial grounds to a road-side bunk for a hot cuppa. A conveyor belt processes toast at a continuous pace, bacon and sausages, idlis, dosa, puris, cakes and buns abound - we counted more than 18 dishes. A chef makes omelets to order -cheese, chili, tomato, over 9 varieties to chose from.

There is not much else to see in Agra beyond the Taj Mahal and the Agra Red Fort, its a dusty little town, so on day three after a sumptuous breakfast leave for Jaipur. On the way is the city of Fatehpur Sikri, worth a brief halt. In Agra we hire a horse jutka for Rs.35 and get a ride around the red fort, looking up at the white Mahal where Shah Jahan was imprisoned.

At Jaipur check in at the Jai Mahal Palace or at the Rambagh Palace and spend the night there. Though a smaller city than Delhi, Jaipur requires a full day for sight seeing. The Amber Fort, from where the old maharajas ruled is situated at the top of a hill and includes a palace. You can take an elephant ride up the winding path, and after a mouth watering lunch, visit the City Palace, Jantar Mantar, Hawa Mahal, and Birla Mandir. Alternately you can lunch at the quaint and romantic Ramgarh Lodge - the former hunting ground of the royal family. The museum here has a rare combination of Rajasthani and Mughal architecture, displaying royal costumes, armoury, guns and old paintings. After all this traveling and trekking check out the Rambagh Palace, and Jai Mahal rejuvenation package - both the traditional Rajasthani Ubtan and the International Swedish massage blending in to a holistic therapy, bringing you back home fresher and more bon vivant than ever. Choose from Abhyangam, Shirodhara and Swedish rub or go a royal aromatic massage, Bewar touch, royal balancing facials or try olive oil massage, back massage or an aroma massage. After that a candlelight dinner, vintage car ride and champagne floral bath if not a picnic or a jungle camp visit, will find you drifting of to deep slumber in your partner’s arms.

Best time to visit: October to March. Delhi being the capital is connected to the entire world by flights.

Agra and Jaipur are 30 minutes by air from Delhi and 204 and 237 kilometres by road, respectively. Fatehpur Sikri is 37 kilometres from Agra.

The Taj group offers a ‘Golden Triangle’ package of all three cities for 3 days and two nights at prices starting from Rs.11,500 though the Ramgarh Palace tops at Rs.30,000. The jungle lodge is however only Rs.8160.
