North India Vacations

Day 05: Jaipur - Agra
AgraAfter having breakfast at the hotel, we bid farewell to the pink city and move on to the erstwhile kingdom of dynasties, Agra. Agra is located at a distance of 222 km from Jaipur, a four hour journey by road.

Fort of AgraThe famed former Mughal capital Agra came into limelight when it became the capital of Sikandar Lodi in 1501, but it aspired to its height of magnificence under Mughal Emperor Akbar, who turned this little village into one of the most picturesque places in the country. Agra is included in the itinerary of every tourist visiting India, simply because of the glorious Taj Mahal. The city has been home to three generations of the mighty Mughals, a fact visible in some of the finest architectural marvels of the medieval era. An extensive sightseeing tour of Agra would entail a visit to the world famous Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Itmad-ud-daulah's tomb and Akbar's Mausoleum.

Taj Mahal - The monumental symbol of love, Taj Mahal was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in the Taj Mahalmemory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. The incredible monument took 22 years and more than 20000 workers to build and even benefited from the services of Frenchman Austin de Bordeaux and Italian Veroneo of Venice.

Agra Fort - Another major landmark in the city, the Agra Fort was commissioned by Emperor Akbar in 1565, mostly for military purposes. Additions continued to be made to the palace right through to the time of Shah Jahan when it was converted into a residential palace.

Itmad-ud-daulah's Tomb - The tomb of Mirza Ghiyas Beg was built by his daughter Noor Jehan. Resembling the Taj in many ways, its interiors are sometimes considered better than the world famous monument.
