Holidays suggestion for travelers from DelhiAs winter is approaching in 3 months, the state of Rajasthan is getting ready to welcome travellers from all over the world, but mostly from New Delhi. And thus, in my 1st thread at IndianTravelBlog, I want to share some destination details of places to see in Rajasthan from New Delhi.
So, whether you are from Delhi or reaching Delhi from any other part of the world, a tour of Rajasthan starts from India's capital. As the closest international airport from Rajasthan is New Delhi international airport.

After spending 24 to 48 hours in Delhi, you must plan a road trip to Agra. You can also catch many trains available from Delhi to Agra, but I will suggest hiring a cab for your whole holiday as you would be able to see some amazing on route sites. So before reaching Agra, you can stop and visit Mathura and Vrindavan Temples.
Then at Agra, you must visit Taj Mahal, Akbar tomb, Agra fort and Fatehpur Sikri, which is 50 km from Agra city.

On route, you can visit Mehandipur Balaji temple and Chand Baori stepwell.
