Tour Description in short:
Agra, located in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India, is famous for being home to the magnificent Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Apart from the Taj Mahal, Agra is also known for its rich history and architectural marvels. If you're interested in a local sightseeing tour of Agra, here are some popular attractions you should consider visiting:
Start your tour with a visit to the iconic Taj Mahal, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This magnificent white marble mausoleum was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in the 17th century as a symbol of love for his wife. The beauty and grandeur of the Taj Mahal are truly awe-inspiring, especially during sunrise or sunset.
Explore the historic Agra Fort, another UNESCO World Heritage site. This red sandstone fortress was the main residence of the Mughal emperors until Delhi became the capital. Within the fort, you'll find beautiful palaces, mosques, and gardens, offering a glimpse into the opulent lifestyle of the Mughal era.
Also known as the "Baby Taj," this tomb is a lesser-known gem in Agra. Itmad-ud-Daulah's Tomb is an exquisite marble mausoleum built for Mirza Ghiyas Beg, the grandfather of Mumtaz Mahal (wife of Emperor Shah Jahan). It is known for its intricate marble inlay work and tranquil ambiance.
Located across the Yamuna River from the Taj Mahal, Mehtab Bagh is a beautiful garden complex offering a stunning view of the Taj Mahal. It's an ideal spot for photography enthusiasts and those seeking a peaceful retreat.
While not located within Agra city limits, Fatehpur Sikri is a must-visit if you have the time. It's a historic city founded by Emperor Akbar and served as the capital of the Mughal Empire for a short period. The complex houses stunning palaces, courtyards, and the famous Buland Darwaza.
Located in Sikandra, on the outskirts of Agra, Akbar's Tomb is the final resting place of Emperor Akbar. The mausoleum showcases a blend of architectural styles and beautiful gardens, making it a worthwhile stop on your tour.
