This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Shahi Qila, Jaunpur India

This Breathtaking fort is located on the banks of River Gomti, and is known as Purana Shahi Qila and ASI protected monument. This fort is said to have been built by Firoz Shah Tuglaq in fifteenth century. The fort is surrounded by four walls and has a beautiful mosque made from pillars from Hindu temples. There is also a underground dungeon which is very thrilling.

Atala Mosque (from outside)

Being the first mosque to be built after the independence of Jaunpur from the Islamic caliphate in India, the Atala Mosque was given royal treatment setting up a new monumentality to the traditional jami'. The majestic pylons of the portal of its main prayer room, the three unequal domes above its roof and the large court with its two storey porticoes, all expressed a new grandeur never seen before, adding more mystery to the skill and imagination of the medieval Muslim architect.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Shahi Bridge, Near Zafarabad, Jaunpur India

This famous bridge over mighty Gomti River was built by Munyeen Khankhana in 1564 on the orders of Akbar during his reign. This ancient bridge is still intact and widely used.
