Discover the city of Agra and its monuments with this incredible tour. First of all, you'll be picked-up from your respective hotel and driven to Agra to visit the world famous Taj Mahal. Perhaps no other monument epitomizes India as the Taj Mahal: it is a symbol of love, a poem in marble by the Mughal Emperor Shahjehan for his beloved queen Mumtaz Mahal.The Taj Mahal is entirely made of white marble and its walls are decorated with exquisite pietradura (stone inlay) work. It is said that different types of rare, precious and semi-precious stones were used in the intricate inlay work done on the interiors.
Later you'll visit the Agra Fort, the seat and the stronghold of the Mughal Empire under successive generations. This was the seat of Mughal rule and administration and the present structure owes its origins to Akbar who erected the walls and gates and the first buildings on the eastern banks of Yamuna River.
End your tour with visit to Itmad-ud-Daulah, the 17th century mausoleum built by Empress Noor Jahan, the wife of Emperor Jehangir, in memory of her father, MirzaGhiyas Beg. Often referred and regarded as ‘Baby Taj’, the mausoleum is set in a “Char Bagh” (four gardens) style divided equally by water channels and walkways.
