Among the most visited and sought after tourist destinations in the world, Agra is a spectacle that is waiting to happen. It is a few hours away from Delhi, is bordered by the culture-rich Mathura on one side, while the land of the Maharajas, Gwalior lies on the other side. Yet, it holds its place among millions of tourists who throng to the city to witness the most epic and most opulent monument ever, the Taj Mahal. Our Agra tour packages take you on a historical tour of this land seeped in legends, castles, forts and of course, heartbreaking love stories. It promises to be an exhilarating experience, highlighted by leisurely walks around the Taj.
Witness the Taj
Think Agra and you cannot help but think about the ‘the embodiment of all things pure’ as it was called by Rudyard Kipling. The Taj Mahal is visited each year by twice the number of people as the population of Agra. While most people who come to witness the Taj know about its history, there are a few interesting details which people are unaware of. Over 22,000 workers worked to create the awe-inspiring structure with building materials and opulent jewels bought from all around the world. The marble from Rajasthan, turquoise from Tibet, jasper from Punjab, jade from China, lapis lazuli from Afghanistan and sapphire from Sri Lanka. More than 28 types of jewels, gems and precious stones were used and inlaid into the marble in various places. From the spacious lawns to the famed view at sunrise, there are somethings that must be seen to be believed.

Despite being linked to the Taj forever, there’s more to do in Agra than what you would have imagined.
Away from the hustle and the thronging crowds of the Taj, lies the tomb of Akbar’s wife Mariam. Unlike typical Moghul monuments, this sandstone structure is mostly plain but features a blend of Hindu and Islamic styled architecture which is a rarity. The large ornate lawns and the red sandstone structure against it make a welcome break from the crowds at other monuments in Agra.
Two kms away from the Taj lies a magnificent structure spread over 94 acres of land. One of the most historically significant and culturally rich landmarks that has witnessed several dynasties including the Sikawars, the Lodis and finally, Moghuls, Agra fort is one of the most stunning manmade structures on earth. It is famous for its two large gates, the Delhi gate and the Lahore gate. It is also one of the few tourist destinations in India, where there is no provision to buy bottled drinking water.

Agra is a street shoppers dream come true. There are shops selling everything under the sun but it’s famous for its leather ware, handicrafts and handmade rugs or carpets. Don’t forget to check out the Pietra-Dura, a handcrafted souvenir that uses semiprecious stones. If you want to buy at cheaper rates, head out to the old wholesale markets which have remained largely unaffected by technology for the last 400 years.
