INDIA’S Golden Triangle is the essential introduction for the rst time visitor to this land of 1.1 b people. It’s a circuit that starts and ends in Delhi and includes Agra and colourful Rajasthan. Connected by air, train, bus and car, Agra is home to India’s most exalted edice, the white marble mausoleum of the Taj Mahal. Best seen at sunrise, the Taj is a short distance from the newly refurbished ITC Mughal, a Luxury Collection hotel set in 35 acres of landscaped gardens. Providing respite from the crush of the crowds, it is perfectly suited for conferencing groups, with meeting rooms that take up to 750 guests. The journey continues to the Alwar region of Rajasthan and the Amanbagh Villas, where the bedside tables don’t contain bibles but copies of the Kama Sutra! The Mogul-inspired architecture and the Amanbargh’s palatial elegance makes it a very desirable setting for a whole of resort buy out or for a polo match on the front lawn. Here, a visit to the Bhangarh, a city established in 1573 by a Rajasthani king and abandoned in 1630, is a must. Some of Rajasthan’s nest fortications and most luxurious palaces are found in Jaipur, know as the Pink City. Principal among these is the Amber Fort, which can be accessed via elephant if you choose; the Jantar Mantar, a set of incredibly accurate and colossal astronomical observatory instruments constructed in 1734; and the lavish City Palace. For accommodation in the heart of Jaipur, the ITC Rajputana, a ve star business hotel, has 218 guest rooms and suites and world-class conference facilities for up to 500 people. Back in New Delhi, Dusit’s rst hotel in India, the Dusit Devarana New Delhi, oers 50 elegant living spaces while its lush gardens and location 10 minutes from the New Delhi airport are a magnet for hi-end incentive and corporate gatherings.

Twenty countries would be represented in the program, which had been designed in consultaon with associaon planners through research and focus group meengs, the organisaon said.
