There are three grand gates in the Purana Qila such as The Humayun Darwaza, Bara Darwaza and Talaqi Darwaza which are also built up of red sandstone.

    Sravs's 5 days trip to Old Delhi

    Over all experience was good but first we got a driver car was not appropriate and driver was driving very easily and after I gave a complaint they changed the driver...Everytime we had a great experience with Travel Traingle but this time in the start of the trip itself we were disappointed on Day
    1..After that we had a driver who was very much interactive and had a good trip after that. Delhi and Amritsar trip was great but because of the first driver in Delhi airport to Agra we were not that happy

    Vmldas's 5 days trip to Old Delhi

    I intentionally made a decision to take tour with Back to Holidays though I knew that I’m paying way more because I’m taking my mother with me. The coordinator Homendra is very good in assisting us but the cab driver who was rude and tried to skip a lot of places. The hotel SunStar in Delhi was pret
    ty decent. There was a hot water problem and when contacted the receptionist, he said we will have to managed for a day with normal water which was very cold in Feb. They did not provide us welcome drink also. The Regal Vista hotel in Agra was good enough. Driver kept trying to make us to take guide in every place to get him a commission. The very last day, for the drop to airport, the driver himself arranged a local taxi which was in pathetic condition and the taxi driver was also rude in communicating with us.
