Before the Taj Mahal began to dominate the city’s skyline, Agra exhibited significant pride in two gorgeous tombs – one of the Emperor Akbar and the other of Itmad-ud-Daulah. This tour takes you through the lesser known hot spots of the city that are reminiscent of the thriving Mogul influence in the region.
About this Tour …
• Visit the Mausoleum of Akbar, one of the most popular Mogul Emperors to date. Located in Sikandra, in the outskirts of Agra, this tomb was designed by the emperor himself and was later modified by his son
• The Mausoleum of Itmad-ud-Daulah is often nicknamed as the “Baby Taj”. This tomb is essentially a tribute to the refined sensibilities of his daughter Noor Jehan who ran the state as a proxy and as the wife of Akbar’s son Jahangir
