The Golden Triangle in India is a tourist triangle in India that connects the national capital, New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. The Golden Triangle is so named because of the triangular shape formed by the locations of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur on a map. The trips usually start in Delhi and move south to the site of the Taj Mahal at Agra, then west, to the desert landscapes of Rajasthan. It is normally possible to do the trip by coach or private journey through most tour operators. The Golden Triangle is now a well traveled route, providing a good spectrum of the country's different landscapes.
