The city of Taj Mahal
Home to 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort, the city of Agra throngs with tourists all year round. Reminiscent of the glory that was once the Mogul Empire, this city is seeping in history and gorgeous architecture.
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.
