Golden Triangle in India

We did a 6 day tour around the Golden Triangle in India. The Golden Triangle is  a tourist circuit composed of 3 cities in India: Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. Below are some of the highlights of this circuit and our time there.

Taj Mahal, Agra around 6:20am: probably the most beautiful building in India, completed around 1653, after 21 years of work. It looks like a temple but it is actually a white marble mausoleum, built by one of India’s Mughal emperors in memory of his wife.

We spent one afternoon learning about the incredible work that the non-profit Goonj is doing in India. Below is where they sort out the donated cloths that then gets distributed all around India.
