In the morning you will be picked-up from your respective hotel and driven to Agra to visit the world-famous Taj Mahal. Perhaps no other symbol epitomizes India such as the Taj Mahal. Situated on the banks of the river Yamuna, the Taj Mahal is an epitome of love, as a poem in marble by the Mughal Emperor Shahjehan for his beloved queen Mumtaz Mahal shows.
The Taj Mahal is made of white marble and its walls are decorated with exquisite pietra dura (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. This magnificent monument is set around a Charbagh or 'four garden' plan, which is split by watercourses; a reflection of the Persian style.
Later visit the Agra Fort which was 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 constructed the walls and gates and the first buildings on the eastern banks of Yamuna River.
Shah Jahan added the impressive quarters and the mosque while Aurangzeb added the outer ramparts. Visit its Hall of Public Audience and its Royal Pavilions. You will then be driven back to Delhi to your hotels.
