The Golden Triangle India is so called because of the triangular shape formed by the locations of New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur on a map, but is occasionally expanded to include the wider geographical area of North India, most frequented by tourists. Most tourists Drive from Delhi, travel southwards to the site of the famous Taj Mahal at Agra, then west, to 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 leg is about 4 to 6 hours of drive, though with new Express Highway between Delhi and Agra it takes around 3 hours to reach Agra by Road. The fast Shatabdi train now runs on all the legs of the Golden triangle tour.
