Golden triangle is a tourist circuit which includes: Delhi, Agra (including the Taj Mahal), and Jaipur. The Golden Triangle is now a well travelled route, hosting many of India's great cultural gems, and providing a good spectrum of the country's different landscapes. The Golden Triangle is so called because of the triangular shape formed by the locations of New Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan on a map, but is occasionally expanded to include the wider geographical area of North India, most frequented by tourists. Most tourists fly from Delhi; travel southwards to the site of the famous Taj Mahal at Agra, then west, to the desert landscapes of Rajasthan, including the city of Jaipur. These three cities are extremely popular as tourist destinations among the foreign tourists visiting India as well as among the natives.
The circuit is about 1000 km by road. Each Place takes about 4 to 6 hours of drive, though with new Yamuna Express Highway between Delhi and Agra it takes around 1.5 hours to reach Agra by Road. The faster Shatabdi train runs between Delhi and Agra, and also Delhi and Jaipur. Golden triangle east is a tourist circuit in Odisha which includes Puri, Konark, and Bhubaneshwar.
