AGRA – TAJ MAHAL, RED FORT

jaipur-2
We start our India motorcycle road trip in Delhi. Delhi straddles two worlds: the old constantly attempting to come to terms with the new. Old Delhi, once the capital of Mughal India, is a labyrinth of narrow lanes lined with crumbling havelis and formidable mosques. In contrast, the imperial city of New Delhi built by the British comprises spacious, tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings. Our first day is spent relaxing in Gurugram, the glitzy suburban city in the National Capital Region, and preparing for the ride ahead.
Enthralling, historical Jaipur, Rajasthan’s capital, is the gateway to India’s most flamboyant state. Jaipur earned the sobriquet of Pink City after Jai Singh’s descendant Ram Singh, painted the city in gerua to welcome the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) in 1876. For the want of a name for the color (gerua is closer to ochre than pink) the British called it pink and the name stuck.
We ride 160 kms south-west from Jaipur on Day 3, to reach Ranthambore National Park. This national park contains 1334 sq km of wild jungle scrub hemmed in by rocky ridges, and is the best place to spot wild tigers in Rajasthan. At its centre is the 10th-century Ranthambore Fort, and scattered nearby are ancient temples and mosques and crocodile-infested lakes. Ranthambore National Park has done rather well in conservation of tigers.
On Day 5 of our India road trip adventure, we cover a short distance of 120 kms to reach Udaipur. Beside the shimmering Lake Pichola, with the ochre and purple ridges of the wooded Aravalli Hills stretching away in every direction, Udaipur has a romantic setting unmatched in Rajasthan and arguably in all India. Fantastical palaces, temples, havelis and countless narrow, crooked, timeless streets add the human counterpoint to the city’s natural charms. Udaipur’s tag of ‘the most romantic spot on the continent of India’ was first applied in 1829 by Colonel James Tod. It has several nicknames – City of Lakes and Venice of the East being the most popular.
From  Jodhpur on Day 8, we ride 290 kms across the beautiful barren desert landscape to reach our next halt, Jaisalmer. The desert city is also called the Golden city thanks to the color it gets from the yellow sandstone used for construction of the buildings. Jaisalmar is the last big town in Rajasthan closest to the India-Pakistan border and stands in the heart of the Thar Desert. The majestic fort of Jaisalmer, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a breathtaking sight: a massive sandcastle rising from the sandy plains like a mirage. Beneath the ramparts, particularly to the north, the narrow streets of the old city conceal magnificent havelis, all carved from the same golden-honey sandstone as the fort – hence Jaisalmer’s designation as the Golden City.
Situated in north-eastern Rajasthan, Mandawa, our halt on Day 11 is a semi-arid historical region rich in culture and history and has earned the sobriquet ‘open art gallery of Rajasthan‘ as the region has the largest concentration of frescoes in the world. Far less visited than other parts of Rajasthan, the Shekhawati region is renowned for its extraordinary painted havelis, highlighted with dazzling, often whimsical, murals. Part of the region’s appeal is that these works of art are found in tiny towns connected by single-track roads that run through desolate countryside north of Jaipur.
Day 13. The magical allure of the Taj Mahal draws tourists to Agra like moths to a wondrous flame. And despite the hype, it’s every bit as good as you’ve heard. Along with Delhi and Jaipur, Agra forms the Golden Triangle of tourism in India.
