Private Tour: Agra, Taj Mahal and Fatehpur Sikri Day Trip from Delhi19 reviews
The World Heritage-listed Taj Mahal was built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the 17th century, during a golden era of art and architecture in India. The world's most extravagant monument built for love was constructed as a tomb for Shah Jahan's beloved wife, Mumtaz Muhal, who died giving birth to their 14th child. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1631 and was not completed until 1653. You will be amazed by the intricate carvings and designs that have withstood the test of time, and be intrigued as you hear the stories of love and tragedy.
After lunch at a restaurant of your choice (at your own expense), you will visit Agra Fort, the Halls of Public and Private Audience and the Tomb of Itmad-ud Daullah.
On your return trip to Delhi, visit Fatehpur Sikri, 24 miles (40 kilometers) from Agra. This magnificent ghost city was built by Emperor Akbar in 1569 and became the capital of Mughal India for 15 years before it was abandoned due to sarcity of water.Your guide will show you all the points of interest including Jama Masjid, the 54-meter-high Victory Gate (Buland Darwaza), the white marble tomb of Shikh Salim Chrishti as well as many palaces and pavilions that blend elements of Hindu, Islamic and Persian architecture.
