Visit the spellbinding Taj Mahal and Agra Fort

Agra will forever be associated with that great monument to love, the Taj Mahal and the impossibly beautiful building that hangs like a cloud over the city. However this former capital isn’t all about the famous monument – there are plenty of other beautiful examples of Mughal architecture to be found such as the magnificent Red Fort. You may stop here for just a night on your tour of the Golden Triangle but it is well worth extending your stay to a few days to explore.

  • World Heritage Site, Wonder of the World… the Taj Mahal’s reputation as one of the world’s most beautiful buildings is well documented and no stay in Agra would be complete without a visit here
  • The Tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah is a great place to visit before the world famous monument and to enjoy a more peaceful experience
  • One of India’s largest mosques, Jama Masjid, and the beautiful Agra Fort are both well worth a visit and fine examples of Mughal architecture
  • Agra makes up part of India’s Golden Triangle, alongside Jaipur and Delhi, and you can visit as part of an escorted tour or as part of a tailor made itinerary
  • The fascinating abandoned city of Fatehpur lies within easy reach of the city. We highly recommend stopping here en route between Delhi and Agra
