Agra is home to the magnificent Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The city rose to prominence as the capital of the Mughal Empire in the 16th Century, and most of the city's acclaimed heritage sites date back to this era. Carrying the artistic heritage of the Mughal Empire into the present day, the streets of Agra are dotted with ancient buildings existing in happy harmony with modern day shops and houses.

On arrival, check-in at the hotel.

Late in the afternoon visit the Agra Fort followed by a sunset visit to the Taj Mahal, the exquisite mausoleum built by the Emperor Shah Jahan as for his beloved wife Mumtaz.

The Agra Fort is a massive red sandstone structure, located on the banks of the Yamuna River. Construction of the fort was started in 1565 by the Mughal Emperor Akbar, and further additions were subsequently made, up until the reign of his grandson Shah Jahan. Originally built for military purposes, it was later used as a palace, and eventually even served as a prison where Shah Jahan was confined by his son Aurangzeb.

The fort runs along a length of 2.5km within enclosed walls; it encompasses several exquisite palaces such as the Shah Jahani Mahal, Jahangiri Mahal, Khas Mahal, as well as audience halls named Diwan-e-aam and the Diwan-e-khas. It further contains a fish pavilion, the Nagina Masjid, the Garden of Grapes and the Pearl Mosque.

Taj Mahal, the epitome of love, stands on the banks of the River Yamuna. Built in 1648 by the Mughal Emperor Shahjahan, in memory of his empress Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj attracts millions of tourists from all over the world. To experience the beauty of this architectural marvel, you need to view it at different times of the day and year. It is made entirely of white marble and decorated with exquisite pietra dura (stone inlay) work, and different types of precious and semi-precious stones were used in the intricate inlay work done on the interiors. The white marble changes its hue with the variations in the daylight. In moonlight, particularly on the full moon night, the marble appears extraordinarily luminescent. This magnificent monument is built around a “four garden” plan, split by watercourses – reflecting the influence of the Persian architectural style. On a trip to the Taj, it is always better to sit around in the garden and admire the scenic beauty, rather than rushing through to see the monument. Immerse yourself in the serene atmosphere to make your visit even more memorable.

Important Note

  • Taj Mahal is closed on Friday.
