    After breakfast, go out on a sightseeing tour of Old Delhi seeing the largest monument of Old Delhi, the imposing Red Fort, built in red sandstone (photo stop from outside, entrance not included). The walls of the massive Red Fort rise a daunting 33 metres (108 ft) above the bustle of Old Delhi as a reminder of the magnificent power of former emperors. Very near the fort is the 17th-century Jama Masjid (‘Friday Mosque’), the largest mosque in India. Walk through the famous bazaars of Chandni Chowk, to experience the hustle and bustle of a crowded oriental bazaar. Also visit Raj Ghat, the Mahatma Gandhi memorial, a simple black marble platform that marks the spot of his cremation.

In modern times, the city houses a thriving crafts industry, including marble inlay work and carpets. In the afternoon, go out on a sightseeing tour of Agra which includes the awe-inspiring Taj Mahal. Built in the mid-17th century by the heartbroken Shah Jahan following the death in childbirth of his queen, Mumtaz Mahal, this mausoleum is an eternal love poem written in stone.
