Day2  Delhi (Old and New Delhi: Jama Masjid, Qutab Mina, Humayun's Tomb, Jantar Mantar Observatory, India Gate, President's House, etc.)

Today, it’s time to explore the incredible sights of both Old Delhi and New Delhi including the visit to Jama Masjid, the experience of local life by a rickshaw in Chandni Chowk, the sightseeing in Qutab Minar (World Heritage), Humayun's Tomb (World Heritage), India Gate, Jantar Mantar Observatory (World Heritage), President's House, Parliament House, and Government Secretariat Buildings.

Jama Masjid (Friday Mosque), situated in the Mughal capital of Shahjahanabad (Old Delhi), is one of the largest mosques in India with a courtyard capable of holding 25,000 devotees. As one of Delhi's most iconic sites, it was finished in 1656 and ended up being the final architectural extravagance of Shah Jahan, the Mughal emperor who built the Taj Mahal and the Red Fort. Jama Masjid has three great gates (South, East, and North Gate), four towers for security, and two 40m high minarets constructed of strips of red sandstone and white marble. You can hire robes at the northern gate and it may be the only place to dress like a local people without feeling like an outsider.

Qutub Minar (Qutb Minar, Qutab Minar, Vishnu Stambh) is one of the highest minarets (73m) in India built by Qutub-ud-Din Aibak in 1193. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is considered the earliest Islamic structure in India with Arabic and Brahmi inscriptions. The Qutub Minar, located in Mehrauli in South West district of Delhi, was built to celebrate Muslim dominance in Delhi after the defeat of Delhi's last Hindu ruler. It is one of the most famous historical landmarks of India. A circular staircase of 379 steps allows one to reach the top of the tower to witness a panoramic view of the city. Bollywood actor and director Dev Anand shoot the song "Dil Ka Bhanwar Kare Pukar" inside a replica of the Qutb Minar.

Humayun's Tomb (Dormitory of the Mughals), predating the Taj Mahal by 60 years, is the first substantial example of Mughal architecture in India. It's thought to have inspired the Taj Mahal and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1993. Humayun's Tomb was constructed for the second Mughal emperor of India (Humayun) who died in 1556. The tomb was built by Hamida Banu Begum (Humayun's Persian-born wife) in the mid-16th century (1565-1572). Bega Begum not only commissioned and paid for the tomb but supervised its construction as well. Persian and Indian craftsmen worked together to build the garden tomb. Also, there were over 150 Mughal family members buried here.

India Gate (Delhi Memorial, All-India War Memorial) is the monumental sandstone arch in New Delhi, dedicated to the troops of British India who died in wars fought between 1914 and 1919. Located at the eastern end of the Rajpath (formerly called the Kingsway), the architect was Sir Edwin Lutyens, an Englishman who designed numerous other war memorials and was also the principal planner of New Delhi. The foundation stone of India Gate was laid by His Royal Highness, the Duke of Connaught in 1921. During nightfall, India Gate is dramatically floodlit while the fountains nearby make a lovely display with colored lights.

Jantar Mantar Observatory (World Heritage), located in New Delhi, literally means "instruments for measuring the harmony of the heavens". The primary purpose of the observatory was to assemble astronomical data and predict the times and movements of the sun, moon, and planets. Consists of 13 architectural astronomy instruments, it was built by Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur in the year 1724. Jai Singh was born in 1688 into a royal Rajput family and in an era of education that maintained a keen interest in astronomy. He built five observatories and the one in Delhi is the first to be built. The other four are located in Ujjain, Mathura, Varanasi, and Jaipur. The Jantar Mantar is a great place for lovers of astronomy.

President's House (Rashtrapati Bhavan, Presidential Palace, Viceroy's House) was made to be the residence of the Viceroy and Governor-General of India during British Rule. It is situated in the center of Delhi earlier named "Lutyens Delhi" and was inaugurated in 1931 and served as the Viceroy's residence of India till India was declared a Republic country. This Palace is still known to be the World's largest residential complex ever built for the Head of any Country. In 1947, post-independence, a now Governor-General continued his stay here till he was replaced by the President of India in 1950 after which the Viceroy's House was renamed the "Rashtrapati Bhavan".

Mehtab Bagh was the last of the Mughal gardens, which were built along the River Yamuna. The splendid Mehtab Bagh has four sandstone towers, one each at the corner with a huge octagonal tank right in the center. This crescent-shaped garden is considered the ultimate spot for viewing the Taj Mahal. It is said that the best time to visit it is at sunset when the sky lights up with the Taj in the background.

Taj Mahal (Tadj Mahall) is located on the right bank of the Yamuna River in a vast Mughal garden in the Agra District in Uttar Pradesh state, northern India. It is an immense mausoleum of white marble, built between 1631 and 1648 by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan (reigned 1628–1658) in memory of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The Taj Mahal is the jewel of Muslim art in India and is distinguished as the finest example of Mughal architecture, a blend of Indian, Persian, and Islamic styles. Taj Mahal is one of the Seven Wonders of the World and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1983.

Agra Fort (Lal-Qila, Fort Rouge, Qila-i-Akbari) is about 2.5 km northwest of its more famous sister monument, the Taj Mahal. Built during 1565-1573 for Mughal Emperor Akbar, the fort can be more accurately described as a walled city. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it was the main residence of the emperors of the Mughal Dynasty till 1638, when the capital was shifted from Agra to Delhi. The fort was the site of a battle during the Indian rebellion of 1857, which caused the end of the British East India Company's rule in India, and led to a century of direct rule of India by Britain.

Itmad-ud-Daula's Tomb (I'timād-ud-Daulah Maqbara, Bachcha Taj, Baby Taj) is a Mughal mausoleum in Agra. The tomb was built between 1622 and 1628 by Nur Jahan, mother of Shah Jahan (builder of the Taj Mahal), for her father Mirzā Ghiyās Beg, originally a Persian Amir in exile, who had been given the title of I'timād-ud-Daulah (pillar of the state). Mirzā Ghiyās Beg was also the grandfather of Arjumand Banu Begum (the Lady of the Taj Mahal), the wife of the emperor Shah Jahan. I'timād-ud-Daulah is often described as a "jewel box" and is considered the inspiration for the world wonder, the Taj Mahal. However, the tomb of Itimad-Ud-Daulah is a more delicate artwork with marble lattice screens and fine carvings.

In the morning, we will explore Bhutan’s capital city Thimphu through Folk Heritage Museum, School for Arts and Crafts, and Tashichho Dzong. Then head back to Paro.

Folk Heritage Museum (Phelchey Toenkhyim) was established on July 28th, 2001 with the initiative of Her Majesty Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck (the Queen Mother of Bhutan). It is set inside a three-storied, 19th-century traditional house and provides visitors with a glimpse of the traditional Bhutanese lifestyle, artifacts from rural households, collection of typical household objects, tools, and equipment. The museum also organizes regular demonstrations of rural traditions, skills, habits, and customs as well as hosts educational programs for children.

School of Arts and Crafts (Thimphu National Institute for Zorig Chusum), established by the Government of Bhutan in 1971, is an institute that nurtures exemplary craftsmanship in Zorig Chusum (13 Arts and Crafts). In the Institute, thirteen skills are taught to students. These thirteen art forms are Traditional Painting (Lhazo), Sculpturing (Jinzo), Wood Carving (Shagzo), Calligraphy (Yigzo), Papermaking (Dezo), Bronze Casting (Lugzo), Embroidery (Tshemazo), Weaving (Thagzo), Carpentry (Parzo), Masonry (Dozo), Bamboo and cane weaving (Tshazo), Gold/Silver Smithy (Trozo), Black smithy (Garzo).

Tashichho Dzong (Thimphu Dzong) is located on the right side of the Wangchu River in the northern part of Thimphu city. As the "Fortress of the glorious religion", it houses the throne room of His Majesty the King, government offices, and the central monk body. Thimphu Dzong was initially erected in 1641 and rebuilt by King Jigme Dorji Wangchuck in the 1960s. There are two main entrances in the Tashichho Dzong. One leads to the administrative section to the south and the other one (at the north) leads to the monastic quarter where festivals and dances are performed.

Day23  Paro (Tiger's Nest Monastery, Bhutan Hot Stone Bath)

Today we will drive from Paro city to the start point of the hiking route of the Tiger's Nest Monastery. It takes about 2.5 hours to reach Tiger's Nest by foot (5 hours for a round trip), and you can have a rest at the view terrace which is located at the halfway point of the hiking road. Also, you can choose to ride a horse(self-paying) from the camp base to the Taktsang Cafeteria (lunch spot). We will enjoy Bhutan’s traditional Hot Stone Bath in the late afternoon.

Tiger's Nest Monastery (Taktsang Goemba, Takhtsang Lakhang, Paro Taktshang), first built in 1692, is the iconic landmark of Bhutan. As a world cultural heritage, it is sited on the side of a cliff at a height of 900m above the Paro Valley. It is said that Guru Rinpoche (a Buddhist saint) rode a tigress to the current site of the monastery and meditated in a cave for 3 years 3 months and 3 days. Now it is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Bhutan and a sacred religious site for Bhutanese to pilgrimage at least once in a lifetime.

Optional Activity: Bhutan Traditional Hot Stone Bath in the late afternoon. A visit to Bhutan without enjoying the health benefits hot stone bath would be incomplete. After the hiking, a traditional Bhutanese hot stone bath is perfect to relax in the water heated by hot river stones roasted on the fire.
