On arrival at Agra, visit the magnificent Taj Mahal – one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Taj Mahal in India is the main attraction of tourism and attracts tourists from around the world. This beautiful monument was built by Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. Visit the Agra Fort – the living testimony of the great Mughal architecture in India. This was built by Mughal Emperor Akbar.
The coming of Babar heralded a new era, which was to see Agra at its zenith during the reign of Akbar, Jehangir and Shah Jahan. It was during Akbar’s period that Agra became the center of art, culture and commerce and learning. This trend reached its height when Shah Jahan became the ruler.
In the Mid 16th century and earlier 17th century Agra witnessed a frenzied building activity and it was during this time when the symbol of love Taj Mahal was built. The buildings made during this era were purely in the contemporary Mughal style and of very high quality. The same is still reflected in whatever monuments remain in Agra. The narrow lanes of Agra filled with aroma of Mughlai cuisine, the craftsman who are busy in crating master pieces with their skill all remind of the Mughal royalty which this city had once experienced. Today whatever remains, has become a major tourist attraction which has taken Agra again to the heights of glory but this time as a major tourist destination of India. Proceed for sightseeing.
Built by the famed Mughal emperor Akbar in 1565 AD, the fort is predominantly ofred sandstone. Ensconced within is the picture perfect Pearl Mosque, which is a major tourist attraction.
One of the Seven Wonders of the World was built by Shah Jahan in 1631 AD and was completed in 1651AD. Taj Mahal – The symbol of Love was built in the memory of Mumtaz Mahal (Shah Jahan’ s second Wife). Late in the evening drive back to Delhi drop you hotel.
