Agra Tours and Travels

About Agra

Home to one of the most iconic monuments in the world, Agra is India's shining star and a universal favourite with travellers from around the world. Constantly under attack from the fierce Indian heat, this dusty city has obtained international reverence thanks to it being the site of the famous Taj Mahal, a mausoleum constructed in phases between 1632 and 1643, with extra work continuing on until 1653. It was commissioned by the Mughal Emperor in honour of his favourite wife Mumtaz, whose tomb still lies within its walls. There are few things on the planet as breathtaking as getting an up close view of this historical masterpiece.

Although the Taj Mahal has stolen the limelight of Agra and will realistically be at the forefront of Agra's tourism market for the foreseeable feature, this city also houses two other UNESCO World Heritage sites, making it one of the few cities in the world that can boast three of these accolades. The Agra Fort comes under this category and for obvious reason. Built with red stone and covered, inside and out, with intricate carvings and decoration, this structure is truly a sight to behold.

The final UNESCO World Heritage site in Agra, which is situated within India's famous Golden Triange route, is Fatehpur Sikri, a city that was built by the Emperor Akbar to be the capital of the Mughal Empire. It contains stunning palaces as well as the Jama Masjib, which is one of the largest mosques in India. Of course, there are dozens of other sites and relics scattered throughout this incredible city that are well worth taking the time to seek out so make sure Agra appears on your Indian itinerary.
