Planning a vacation trip for your family is no simple task. You have to make all arrangements like travel as well as stay well in advance so that your family trip is enjoyable and memorable. A Delhi & Agra vacation trip for your family is indeed a very good idea as there is so much to see and do in both of these cities for you and your family. Indeed, there are lots of Indians as well as foreigner tourists almost the year-round but especially during the winter months to these two cities that are a lovely mix between the old and the new.
Delhi being the capital city of the Republic of India is the preeminent seat of political power in the country. It also has an ancient history dating back many centuries and perhaps even millennia which are reflected in its many monuments and places of historical significance. If you were to visit New Delhi designed by the British architect Lutyens you can see the majesty of the Rashtrapati Bhawan as well as the Parliament House, the Rajpath, and the India Gate in its vicinity. This is a well-planned city area that houses many embassies as well as the residences of political and government functionaries. Do plan a visit to India Gate in the evening when the place resembles a mini-fair with many vendors selling lip-smacking snacks and ice cream and kulfi for you and your family to enjoy to the hilt.
Visiting Old Delhi is a trip down memory lane. You can visit the Red Fort and the Karol Bagh area in their vicinity to savour the past of Mughal India. The Jama Masjid is also an imposing structure present in this area and if your reach into the by-lanes nearby you can visit Parathe Wali Gali or the lane of Parathas and enjoy the many delicacies that are the hallmark of this place and world famous too. In addition to this, the city of Delhi has many other places of interest like the Qutub Minar, the Lotus, and Akshardham temples as well as Humayun’s tomb that need to be marked in your itinerary.
The other major city on your itinerary is Agra, the place made famous by the wondrous Taj Mahal made by Emperor Shah Jahan at the height of the glory of the Mughal empire in India. You can book passes online and avoid the serpentine queues outside this historic and inimitable ode to love. The Taj towers resplendent in all its pristine glory that will draw your breath away. There are many options of taking pictures at the Taj that will form memories for a lifetime. It is said that viewing the Taj is a life-altering moment as you gasp in sheer amazement at the beauty of the Taj Mahal.
The Agra fort on the other side of the river Yamuna is also a place well worth visiting. It is said that the emperor Shah Jahan spent his last years in bondage and isolation gazing at the beauteous Taj Mahal that he had constructed in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. You would do well to hire a guide to explain the finer nuances of the fort, its construction as well as salient features of its historical significance.
One of the highlights of a Delhi-Agra trip for your family could be traveling to Agra from Delhi by the Gatimaan Express the fastest passenger train in India. This is a treat not only for kids but even adults who can enjoy the dizzying speed of this train ride!
