Agra was their capital for nearly a hundred years from 1564. A pleasant town, with a comparatively easy pace, Agra is known for its superb inlay work on marble and soapstone by artisans who are hereditary craft persons. The city is also famous for its carpets, gold thread embroidery and leather shoes. Special welcome with garlanding on arrival at the railway station with “Welcome” Banner and musicians in attendance.

In the morning you will visit the Agra Fort. Built by three Mughal Emperors starting from Akbar the Great in 1565 AD this is a masterpiece of design and construction. Within the fort are a number of exquisite buildings including the Moti Masjid, Jahangir’s Palace, Khaas Mahal and the Sheesh Mahal, Diwane-i-Am, Diwane-i-Khas and Musamman Burj, where Emperor Shah Jahan, the fifth Mughal Emperor, died as a prisoner.

This is an interesting experience as you meander through the little streets of Agra. Taj Mahal – the inimitable poem in white marble is the finest architectural achievement of the Mughals. Built over a period of 22 years, by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in 1630, for his Queen Mumtaz Mahal to enshrine her mortal remains, it is one of the seven modern wonders of the World.
