Explore the famous historical landmarks of India- the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. The Taj Mahal, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan as the mausoleum for his favourite queen Mumtaz Mahal. This famous historical landmark of India is one of the original Seven Wonders of the World. Constructed entirely out of white marble, it is an architectural masterpiece with four minarets, beautiful inlay work and marble screens. Often described as a teardrop on the cheek of time, it is also one of the most famous historical landmarks of India and reflects the grandeur and wealth of the Mughal empire.

The impressive architecture of the Red Fort at Agra also speaks volumes about the architectural skill of the Mughals. Built of red sandstone and marble, it offers incredible views of the Taj Mahal and the Yamuna River. Agra was the capital of the Mughal Empire, and this is reflected in the scale of the Red Fort. The fort houses mosques and royal pavilions like the Macchi Bhavan and Shah Jahani Mahal.

Itinerary

Set out from your hotel in Delhi and travel 210 kilometers to Agra in an air-conditioned private vehicle. Enroute you may stop for breakfast (payable direct). A local English speaking guide will meet you at Agra. Visit:

Taj Mahal: A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Taj Mahal was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jehan as the mausoleum for his favourite queen Mumtaz Mahal. See the fine ‘pietra dura’ (marble inlay work), marble screens and cenotaphs of Emperor Shah Jehan and Mumtaz Mahal.

There will be a break for lunch (payable direct).

Agra Fort: The fort is built of red sandstone and marble and offers incredible views of the Taj Mahal and Yamuna River. Visit the Diwan-e-Aam (House of Commons), mosques and royal pavilions like the Macchi Bhavan and Shah Jahani Mahal and you can appreciate the ingenuity of Mughal architecture that kept rooms cool by constructing walls hollowed out for water to flow through them. Some of the buildings are made of pure marble and have beautiful carvings. The Agra Fort is also where Aurangzeb kept his father, Shah Jehan captive for many years.

Travel back to your hotel in Delhi. The tour ends at your hotel.
