Agra
Home to the Majestic Taj

The only name of Agra evokes the images of beautiful looking Taj Mahal, one the Seven Wonders of the World. Agra has become a much loved tourist destination among travellers of all age groups and likes due to the variety of attractions it possesses. It acts as an important part of the famous Golden Triangle Tour which takes you deep into the history of India where you turn some prominent pages. It is believed that this city has played a vital role in shaping India’s history. It finds its mention in Mahabharata as Agrevana. Later, Sikandar Lodi of the Lodi Dynasty established Agra in the sixteenth century. Every nook and corner of the city has been beautified with souvenirs of the past which include forts, step wells, mosques, etc. these monuments showcase the devotion of the rulers of India for architecture, gardens and art and culture.

There is absolutely no dearth of lures in Agra. Every edifice here tells a story. Taj Mahal, the pearly white monument, is the most precious possession of Agra which tempts travellers with its intricate carvings and architecture. The monument was made by Shah Jahan in the memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. Agra Fort also remains among the most visited tourist attraction of the city. This UNESCO World Heritage Site was built by Mughal Emperor Akbar. Some of the most beautiful parts of the fort are Sheesh Mahal, Moti Mahal, Jehangir’s Palace and Khas Mahal.

The Buland Darwaza is a grand gateway that makes everyone wonder and ponder in disbelief. 52 steps lead up to its 175 ft high archway which let you enter this majestic structure. Jama Masjid, housing the tomb of Salim Chishti, a great Sufi saint, is a known attraction of Fatehpur Sikri.
