Synonymous with the country as here is where we go back in time… the city that offers history, art, crafts and the spectacular World Heritage Sites.
Taj Mahal – UNESCO World Heritage Site
To the Nobel laureate Tagore, it was a tear on the face of eternity…This imposing marble mausoleum is credited to the moghul emperor Shah Jahan after his beloved wife Mumtaz. It isn’t simply a piece of architecture—it’s a temple of love. The perfect symmetry and balance, the delicate carvings in marble and the striking inlay make it a breathtaking monument from any angle.
Fatehpur Sikri – UNESCO World Heritage Site
The red sandstone city houses some exquisite palaces and gorgeous courtyards and tomb of the revered SUFI saint Salim Chisti . It is also archeologists’ paradise.
Agra Fort – UNESCO World Heritage Site
The fort offers an awe-inspiring enigma; especially the detailed art and architecture of Diwan-e-aam and Diwan-e-khaas.
Itmad Ud Daulah
A little gem… the site itself is magnificent, especially the gold and paintings on the ceilings.
Best time to visit: Autumn, Fall & Winter – September till March
