Humayun’s Tomb, built in the mid-16th century by Haji Begum, senior wife of Humayun, the second Mughal emperor, is an early example of Mughal architecture. The elements in its design are of great interest for its relation to the later Taj. Qutub Minar dates back to the 13th century and is one of the greatest bequests of Islamic culture. Then drive past Rajpath (The Kings Way), another focus of Lutyens New Delhi . a ceremonial boulevard flanked on either side by ornamental ponds. Rashtrapati Bhawan, the official residence of the President of India, stands at the opposite end of the Rajpath from the India Gate. India Gate is an arch of triumph standing at the eastern end of the Rajpath. It bears the names of 85,000 Indian Army soldiers who died in the campaigns of WW I and the 1919 Afghan fiasco. For lunch we will reserve tables at Veda Restaurant (direct payment) serving fusion Indian cuisine. After lunch continue to the Red Fort. Shah Jahan started construction of the massive fort in 1638 and it was completed in 1648. In Chandni Chowk, a colorful shopping bazaar, enjoy a cycle rickshaw ride on the main street of Old Delhi. Jama Masjid is the great mosque of Old Delhi, the largest in India and the final architectural extravagance of Shah Jahan. Our final stop is at Raj Ghat, a simple square platform of black marble marking the spot where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated following his assassination in 1948. Return to the hotel.

Hotel Oberoi Amarvilas Room Premier with balcony (view of Taj Mahal from your room) Meals Breakfast Thu, Oct 28 Agra Early this morning visit the Taj Mahal ‘Monument for Love’ at sunrise. The Taj Mahal is perhaps the world’s most perfectly proportioned monument. This stunning mausoleum immortalized the name of Shah Jahan’s last wife Mumtaz Mahal, “light of the palace”. Built by Indian artisans and artisans from neighboring Islamic countries, it is aptly described by the poet laureate Tagore as “A tear on the face of eternity”. Decorated with a mosaic of semi precious stones and Persian calligraphy recreating verses from the Koran, the mausoleum is an “Urs”, an important place of pilgrimage since the empress died in childbirth making her a martyr. Prayers are said and passages from Koran are constantly recited in the mosque and cenotaph chamber. Return to your hotel for breakfast. This afternoon visit Agra Fort that stands on the site of a 14th century fort that was occupied by the Lodi Sultans of Delhi. Richly decorated with marble and mosaic, it was in a part of this fort that Shah Jahan spent the last years of his life, imprisoned by his son Aurangzeb. His private quarters where he was confined, has a magical view of the Taj Mahal across the river Yamuna.

Fri, Oct 29 -- Agra – Bharatpur – Ranthambore
After breakfast drive a little over two hours to Bharatpur en-route visiting Fatehpur Sikri, among the world’s most perfect ghost cities and a marvel of design and construction. It was conceived and built by Emperor Akbar, one of the most enlightened rulers of his time. Built in 1571, it is a synthesis of the flourishing styles of the Persian courts and the prevailing Hindu Islamic trends. Today its pristine red sandstone buildings are as perfect as when they were first built. Stop at the Laxmi Vilas Palace, Bharatpur for lunch. Later transfer to Bharatpur railway station for train to Ranthambore. Leave: Bharatpur at: 03:55 PM by: Jan Shatabdi Express Arrive: Ranthambore at: 06:00 PM Upon arrival, transfer to Oberoi Vanyavilas for overnight. Spanning about 250 square miles, Ranthambore covers a variety of habitats, from lakes and rivers to deciduous forest and open bush land. The forests of Ranthambore, in the state of Rajasthan, were once the private hunting grounds of the Maharajahs of Jaipur. Their desire to preserve game in these forests for sport, was partially responsible for the tigers' conservation and subsequent rescue by Project Tiger. Tigers are often spotted in the daylight rolling lazily in the sun or hunting down Sambar around the lakes. It has been named a World Heritage Site because of the picturesque ruins that dot the park - lake palaces, ‘chhatrs’, old fortifications and the majestic, centuries-old Ranthambore Fort. Tiger, leopard, hyena, jackal, sloth bear and wild boar are the main predators in the reserve, and there are many species of herbivore, including spotted deer, Sambhar deer, Nilgai and chinkara

Alwar is also known as the “tiger gate” of Rajasthan. There are several forts and palaces with their own uniqueness and archeological treasures to explore. The Amanbagh derives its name from the words aman, meaning ‘peaceful' in Sanskrit and bagh, meaning ‘garden' in Hindi. It lies within a walled compound that was once used by the Maharajah of Alwar. Long since abandoned, the trees and vegetation continue to thrive due to a reliable water supply drawn from an adjacent lake.

Mon, Nov 01 -- Alwar
Rising early today drive to the medieval site at Bhangarh. This abandoned township belonged to the Jaipur royal family and legend has it that this city of magnificent bazaars, palaces, gardens, temples and bathing pools was deserted overnight because it was cursed by an evil court magician. The best time to visit it is either early morning or at sunset. You will visit early in the morning and breakfast will be served on the site. A private yoga session will be arranged at this atmospheric site. Rest of the day is free for independent activities. A great way to experience rural Rajasthan is to head out in a jeep for a tour of the surrounding villages during peak hour! Peak hour being that hour of the afternoon when the local neighbors are herding the goats, cows and buffalo’s home after a day’s grazing. The locals will wave and the children will run after the car and you may even be invited for chai (tea) in one of the neighbor’s homes. We encourage you to communicate with the local village friends. For many, this Sunset Cow Dust Tour is a profound & inspiring experience.

Tue, Nov 02 -- Alwar – Jaipur
Morning after breakfast you will drive a little over two hours to Jaipur. Jaipur, "The City of Victory", was first intended to be "Sawai Jaipur", named after the boy Prince who commissioned it - Maharaja Jai Singh II - a warrior, astronomer and politician who reigned over the Mughals from 1699 to 1743. Today's Jaipur is pink, visually described as the city shaded with the autumn colors of a sunset. Although originally the walls were render set and pigmented the color of red sandstone, Jaipur's universal coat of pink only came in 1876 to coincide with the visit of the Prince of Wales (King Edward VII). Almost the entire city was given a coat of pink paint, thus giving it the name "The Pink City". This afternoon enjoy a city tour of Jaipur. Tour the part of the City Palace which is open to the public. The most impressive part of the palace is the Diwan-I-Khas or the hall of private audience. Entered through a gateway richly decorated in pietra dura and flanked by a pair of elephants carved out of a single block of marble, the star exhibits of this area are a pair of enormous sterling silver vessels used to store holy water from the Ganges. Also of interest is the Art Gallery which has a collection or royal memorabilia. The Jantar Mantar which you visit next is a collection of futuristic structures and astronomical instruments designed by Sawai Jai Singh the founder of Jaipur. Finally you may wish to explore the colorful markets of Jaipur, in the heart of what is known as the Pink City. One of the fun ways to travel is by cycle rickshaw.

After breakfast proceed for a visit to Amber Fort. ‘Amber Fort’ the old capital of the Kingdom of Kachhawa. As a result of the cordial relations between the rulers of Jaipur and the Imperial power, Amber’s wealth grew enormously.

After your tour of Amber Fort you will be taken to the outskirts of Jaipur to experience an Elephant Safari at the Dera Amer followed by lunch at the camp.

Early morning transfer to the airport for the flight to Udaipur.

Udaipur is a very romantic city, with the palaces built around Lake Pichola and the Aravali Hills forming the backdrop. Home of the Mewar Rajputs, whose symbol is the rising sun, Udaipur was built as a result of the former Mewari Capital, Chittorgarh being destroyed in a bloody siege. Upon arrival transfer to the hotel, The Oberoi Udaivilas. Since the check in time at the hotel is 2:00 PM, leave your luggage at the hotel and after breakfast proceed for a city tour of Udaipur. The City Palace was the home of the Maharanas of Udaipur who according to legend descended from the Sun, the whole complex appropriately faces east. In terms of an exemplary eye to detail and craftsmanship, few palaces match the artwork in this palace. Also of particular note here is the exquisite collection of priceless Rajput Miniature paintings done in the Mewari tradition. Walk through the Crystal Gallery which has a rather eclectic collection of Crystal Object d’art and furniture including a complete bedroom set, discovered recently in a store room in the palace. Finally you visit the Bagore Ki Haveli, a splendid Museum exhibiting Udaipur’s traditional arts and crafts, costumes, musical instruments and marble work. After lunch, check in to your rooms.

These nets are the only remaining evidence of the Chinese contacts of ancient times.

Sun, Nov 07 -- Kochi
After breakfast proceed for a city tour of Kochi. The Jewish Synagogue was built in 1568 and destroyed by the Portuguese in 1662 then rebuilt by the Dutch two years later. Scrolls of the Old Testament and a number of copper plates inscribed in Hebrew script are kept preserved in the synagogue. It contains beautiful Belgian glass chandeliers and is paved with hand painted, willow pattern tiles from Canton in China. Look around the Mattancherry Palace or ‘Dutch Palace’ with its wonderful murals depicting the entire story of the Ramayana on its walls. Although not an opulent building, the Mattancherry Palace has a charm of its own. Built in 1503 by Portuguese Francisan Friars, St. Francis Church was the first European Church built in India. It was restored in 1779 by the protestant Dutch, converted to an Anglican Church by the British in 1795, and is presently used by the church of South India. Vasco da Gama's remains were buried here in 1524 and later moved to Lisbon, but his tombstone still remains. The huge cantilevered Chinese fishing nets at the entrance of Kochi harbor are a fascinating sight, brought by traders from the court of Kublai Khan. Afternoon will be at leisure to enjoy the amenities at the hotel.

Mon, Nov 08 -- Kochi – Alleppey – House Boat
This morning drive for a little over one hour to Alleppey. Upon arrival board your House Boat for an overnight cruise to Kumarakom. The waterways form a basis for a distinct regional lifestyle, and traveling by houseboat along these backwaters is one of the highlights of a visit to the state. The boats cross shallow, palm-fringed lakes studded with Chinese fishing nets and along narrow, shady canals giving one a chance to see this unique lifestyle. The Houseboats or Kettuvalloms are one of the most enduring images of the backwaters. These air conditioned, palm covered boats are designed to navigate the narrow canals. The boat has two comfortable bedrooms with small en-suite facilities and a larger, open sided sitting area where meals (prepared on board) are served. Each boat has a Captain, mate and butler who will accompany our excursions. Enjoy your lunch and dinner on board the House Boat.

Explore the intricate network of canals by canoe, seeing lush palm groves and stretches of rice fields, and gliding through backwater villages where daily life has remained unaltered for centuries. The traffic on the broader canals, of ferries and cargo boats, emphasizes the economic importance of these vital waterways.
