Sightseeing in Agra

- Agra Fort

Agra Fort bears similarities to Delhi’s Red Fort, mostly demolished after the Indian mutiny by the British colonial rulers. The fort combines its defensive structure with a palace and was commissioned in the mid-16th century by Emperor Akbar and added to by Shah Jahan, who was imprisoned here after his overthrow. Overlooking the flat river plain, the complex has a fine view of the Taj Mahal.

- Taj Mahal

One of the world’s loveliest buildings, the Taj Mahal, lends an ethereal aura to this city with its white marble splendour. Built between 1631 and 1648 as a mausoleum for Shah Jahan’s beloved wife, it’s a masterpiece of Indian architecture, a fact which is eerily reflected in a vast pool of sparkling water out front. The complex on which it stands is home to other lovely buildings, mosques, and lush ornamental gardens landscaped around small lakes. The grief-stricken Shah was buried in a tomb alongside his wife after he was overthrown by his son.

Transportation in Agra

Seasonal domestic flights run to Agra’s airport from Delhi, with out-of-season public transport limited to buses, taxis, and rail services from Delhi or Mumbai. Once in the city, auto or cycle rickshaws, electric buses, and air-conditioned taxis are the most practical ways to get around. Self-drive via hire car is possible but not recommended due to the state of the roads, the traffic, and the numerous sacred cows sharing the highway with vehicles.
