From here we continue to the Jama Masjid, which is India’s largest mosque designed by Shah Jahan and was his last architectural legacy.

In complete contrast to the noise and crowds of Old Delhi is Raj Ghat, a simle and stunning memorial to Mahatma Gandhi, the main architect of India’s independence.

Afternoon we visit the New Delhi – which is a blend of ancient and pre independence India. The Qutub Minar, the tapering monument begun in 1199 was built to symbolize the supremacy of Islam.

Day 14Agra / Delhi / Departure

The Taj Mahal is described as “A tear on the face of Eternity” by the poet Tagore and is an enduring monument to love. Built by a grieving Shah Jahan in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal built of glistening marble, fabulously decorated in a mosaic of semi precious stones, is a stunning mausoleum.

Taj Mahal changes its mood with the seasons and the different times of the day. At dawn, the marble has a delicate bloom in shell pink, by noon it glliters majestically white, turning to a soft pearly grey at dusk. On the full moon nights, the silver light makes it float away against the star sprangled sky. Monsoon clouds give it a moody blue tint and it appears and disappears like a mirage in the drifting mists of winter. It can be solid and earth bound, fragile and ethereal, white, amber, grey and gold. The many faces of the Taj Mahal displays the seductive power of architecture and jewellery as both are reflected in the Taj Mahal. It is one of the most flawless architectural creation in the world. We will visit this monument of love at Sun-rise.

Later drive to Delhi, along one of India’s finest freeways, where you will get opportunity to stop on the way to have some refreshments as well as use wash room facilities. Upon arrival in Delhi, transfer to the International airport in time to board flight back home.
