The Taj Mahal and More…
While it is the allure of the Taj Mahal that draws millions of tourists to this city every year, this city is also home to a fascinating number of mausoleums and tombs, crowded marketplaces and winding streets that promise the charming environs of old India. A short drive away is the gorgeous ruined city of Fatehpur Sikri and Mathura, a Hindu pilgrimage town.

Sitting right on the banks of the holy River Yamuna, the Taj Mahal offers magnificent setting that makes you fall in love all over again. Make it a point to explore the glittering marble domed structures where the entire Quran has been carved into the exterior portion of the dome. Also take out a few hours to explore the daunting Agra Fort which epitomizes the power and artistic valor of the Moguls.

Taj Mahal at sunrise

Agra sees the footfall of visitors more than at any place in India. The reason can clearly be attributed to people wanting to have a lifetimes experience of visiting the Taj Mahal.

Guests are collected from their respective accommodations in the morning to go to Taj Mahal for sunrise viewing. The tranquillity and peace prevailing at that time of the day is unforgettable since the place is least crowded. Not to forget, the Taj is believed to be one of the most romantic places in the world. Just find a quiet corner for yourself and you will suddenly find yourself in an altogether different world.
