A trip to Agra, the home of the Taj Mahal, is unlike any other. As well as being the location of the world-famous Taj Mahal, Agra is an excellent example of magnificent Mughal architecture and rich cultural heritage. It was, after all, once the capital of the Mughal dynasty in Uttar Pradesh. Because of this, Agra is a wonderful place for a family vacation or a school field trip because it provides a unique opportunity to relive the past. Delhi to Agra distance by road takes between 3 to 4 hours depending on traffic. It’s hard not to be awed by the splendor of Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri; the delicacy of Akbar’s Tomb and Itmad-Ud-Daulah Tomb; the charm of the unmatched Taj Mahal and Mehtab Bagh.
Everybody wants to go to a place that epitomizes love and romance, like Agra, which is why it is a popular honeymoon destination. Shopping for Indian sweets, leather, and marble stone goods is a great way to spend your time in Agra and see the sites. Additional must-do activity in Agra is to arrange a costly tour and take in the breathtaking view of the Taj Mahal from the balcony or roof of a luxurious hotel. In addition to attending the annual Taj Mahotsav, visitors to Agra can also visit temples, churches, and parks to ensure a memorable vacation.
• The Taj Mahal
In history books, postcards, and on social media, you’ve probably seen this idea or something like it. But now that you’ve arrived in India, you may finally view the Taj Mahal for yourself.
• The Fort of Agra
Agra Fort, a centuries-old red sandstone stronghold that originally served as the imperial capital for a succession of Mughal kings, is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Agra, as is the Taj Mahal.
• Tomb of Itimad-ud-Daulah
Another one of Agra’s magnificent constructions, Itimad-ud-Tomb, Daulah’s may be seen on the Yamuna River’s bank.
• Mehtab Bagh
In the Mehtab Bagh (Moonlight Garden), a square garden complex that measures 300 meters on each side, the Taj Mahal appears to spread across the Yamuna River to the north. The only surviving Mughal-built garden in the vicinity is this one, which dates back to the 16th century.
• The Subhash Emporium.
Visitors to Agra will fall in love with marble inlay after seeing the beautiful sights around the city. Subhash Emporium is the place to go if you want to take a piece of exquisite artistry home with you. This business has a longstanding reputation in Agra, India, as the best place to buy stone handicrafts.
• Fatehpur Sikri
Fatehpur Sikri is a worthwhile day excursion from Agra and is within an hour’s drive from the Taj Mahal. As a tribute to the famed Sufi saint Shaikh Salim Chishti, Akbar founded this city about 500 years ago as the capital of the Mughal Empire’s dynasty. When the city’s water supply began to run short, residents began to leave.
• Akbar’s Mausoleum
Akbar the Great governed the Mughal dynasty for about 50 years, expanding it to include much of the Indian subcontinent’s northern half. One of Agra’s most prominent tourist sites, Akbar’s Mausoleum, contains his remains and those of two of his daughters.
Because it is a popular tourist site, Agra is well-connected to the rest of the country by road, rail, and air transportation. The Delhi to Agra distance is only 125 kilometers. The city is located on the banks of the River Yamuna and receives a steady stream of visitors throughout the year.
